LCU offers eight camps covering three sports for boys and girls:
basketball, volleyball and soccer. Traditionally, the camps are a
time for skill improvement, character building and fun for youth in
middle school through high school. Campers can benefit from
one-on-one instruction, as well as team play and competition, no
matter what their skill level.
Camp registration fees range from $125 to $200 for the four-day
camps and include room and board. All camps begin with registration
from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. and end with awards at noon on the last day.
Basketball camps for boys are offered June 16-19 for grades five
through eight and June 19-22 for high school students. The four-day
camps are designed to help develop the individual skills of each
player. Campers will work on game fundamentals, team competition,
rebounding, defense, ball handling, passing, one-on-one moves,
shooting and more. Campers will learn from current LCU basketball
players and coaching staff, both on the court and during worship
time. The cost is $150 per camper.
Girls in grades five through 12 will work on all aspects of
basketball during their June 23-26 camp. From passing to ball
handling, rebounding to defense, shooting to one-on-one moves, each
player will work on each facet of her game. Players will be grouped
by their abilities for team competition, and all players will play
an equal amount of game time. Camp is a great way to improve skills
and make new friends. Not only will campers improve as players, but
they will make friends for a lifetime by playing, praying and
learning the game of basketball with other Christian girls. The
basketball camp for girls costs just $125 per camper.

The soccer camps at LCU offer a full range of instruction for
campers in grades six through 12. The boys' camp is June 23-26
followed by the girls' camp June 26-29. Soccer camp will include
basic techniques and fitness, one-on-one play, passing, finishing,
and advanced tactics covering all positions on the field, including
goalkeeper. Along with the daily drill and skill, each camper will
be placed on a team instructed by an LCU camp staff member. Campers
will play on an indoor team in the evenings in addition to the
outdoor activities. This camp is designed to help players grow their
skills for soccer, for life and for serving Christ. Soccer camps
cost $150 per camper.
LCU women's volleyball has a reputation for excellence, which
makes the volleyball camps very popular. To address the high demand, LCU offers three camps: one for high school students, July 7-10, and
two for junior high, July 10-13 and July 14-17. The four-day
volleyball camps will help girls who need basic skills as well as
challenge those who are more advanced. Former LCU coach Jason Farr
and current head coach Dave Donnelly will lead the camps in
individualized instruction for hitting, serving, receiving,
blocking, passing and more. Evenings are devoted to team
competition, concluding with a camp championship. Volleyball camps
have sold out the last 16 years, so register early at a cost of $200
