Terrier Intensity Camp-Boys Overnight Camp
Thomas College was the original home of two of New England’s first basketball camps, the All-Maine Clinic and the Pine Tree Basketball Clinic. Thomas is going back to the roots of what made these camps great – a focus on skill development in an intimate setting where enthusiasm and teaching go hand in hand. The Clinic Directors bring with them over 60 years of combined experience in coaching and directing basketball clinics. With a professional staff made up of college and high school coaches, terrific facilities, and a desire to see each player improve, the Thomas Intensity Basketball Camp will offer all players a great experience.
Our son, Cameron, LOVED the Terrier Camp this year. He has attended others in the past and felt this Camp was his best so far!!!! He loved the individualized attention and the small group ratios. He spoke highly of all coaches and staff. He will definitely be back next year and has already asked a few others to join him. Thanks for such a terrific program. ~The Bragg Family from Washburn
