Purchase College is offering a Father/Son Basketball Camp led by head men’s basketball coach Denny Carroll June 16-18. The camp offers young boys (ages 7-12) and their dads the unique opportunity to spend quality time together in a true camp situation, complete with excellent instruction, drills, games, contests, lectures and guest coaches.

The cost is $350 per father/son pair, and an extra $150 for each additional son. The price includes room and board for the entire weekend and use of the facilities, including the Purchase College Gymnasium, former practice gym of the New York Knicks.

Purchase College is located at 735 Anderson Hill Road, Purchase, NY. For registration and more information, call 914-251-6543 or email

Denny Carroll has over 30 years experience running camps and clinics. Half of those years were spent as the director of the Army Basketball School in West Point, NY. In addition, Coach Carroll has run his own camps and clinics in Warwick, NY, Washingtonville, NY, Newburgh, NY and Cornwall, NY, where his original Father/Son Camp was held at the New York Military Academy. Over 10,000 boys have gone through camps conducted by Coach Carroll.

At the Purchase camp, sons stay with their dads at night and go through stations, play in games, and compete in contests with the other boys during the day. Dads do the same while there are some special contests for father/son combinations.

Notebooks given out cover everything done in the weekend and more, and can be a helpful reference, whether working out in the driveway or coaching a team.

There is a certified trainer on staff at all times.
