Camp FAQ's

What forms are required in order for my child to participate?

Registration is simple. There are two ways you can get registered. 1) All forms required will be provided through online registration. If you registered online, your child is ready to participate in camp. 2) Download the form on the link under Camp Menu titled, "Camp Registration Form". Fill out this form and return it along with payment to the location where the camp is being held. Once you arrive the first day of camp please make sure to escort your child into the building as we will confirm that a waiver on your behalf has been signed.

How early can my child arrive and what time must he/she be picked up?

Your child may arrive 30 minutes before camp start time. Before/aftercare is available for an additional fee ($10 per day for each before and after care) at some of our Extreme Action Basketball Camps. Call the location office for details.

Where and when is check in?

Check in will take place the Monday morning of each camp week. Camp begins promptly at 9:00 am, with our doors opening to campers 30 minutes before camp begins (unless there is before care offered). Before care drops offs can take place at 7:30am daily and pick-ups are up to 5:30pm. Daily drop off and pick up will take place at the same location as first day check-in.

What does my child need to bring to camp?
Campers should come dressed in sporting attire (shorts, sneakers, t-shirt). Campers need to bring a basketball (with your name written on the ball) to basketball camp. Please leave all watches, jewelry and electronics (i.e.: ipods, mp3s, and video games) at home as we will not be responsible for such items. Campers may of course bring any medication they may need. Please make the camp director aware of any medication.

Do we provide lunch?

Campers who attend the Atlanta Jewish Academy camps will be provided lunch. For all other camps, the campers must bring their own lunch.

Do you provide before and after care?
For any of our camps which offer this service, there is a $10 charge for before care (runs one hour before regular campers attend), and a $10 charge for after care (runs one hour after regular campers depart).

Is the camp very competitive?

Our focus is on teaching and skill development. Our camps will challenge youth but are not solely about the end result of winning. We are very much into emphasis on process over outcome, teaching each participant how to excel at their own speed.

How are the campers divided during camp?
Campers are placed in groups according to their age at the very beginning of camp. Some may be moved up based on skill level and experience, but no participant will be moved to a lower age group than they are supposed to be. This is done to ensure that each child participates with others of similar ability. Emphasis is placed on improving at one’s own pace while enjoying the excitement of the sport. We will try to accommodate group requests when possible, but cannot guarantee in an effort to keep groups and teams fair and balanced.

Can my child be on the same team as his friends?

Campers may request to be on the same team as friends. If they wish to be on the same team as another camper, they should let their coach know on the first day of camp. While we try to accommodate campers, it is important to provide the best camp experience by evenly matching ages and skill levels to arrange for the best level of competition.

May I cancel my registration?

All fees are refundable until 2 weeks from the camp start date. There is a $45 non-refundable registration fee for all cancellations.

Will there be medical staff at the camp?

The Atlanta Jewish Academy camps will have a medical staff person on site. Many of our other camp locations will not have medical staff on site. However, all of our coaches are certified in CPR and first aid.

What if my child has to leave early?

Please inform the camp instructor at the beginning of the day if your child needs to leave early. If there is an emergency and your child needs to leave early, you may contact the facility office or the Conditioned Minds main office (678) 615-8160.

Who are the instructors?
Our accomplished staff is comprised of a wide array of sport, leadership, and basketball backgrounds. Your child will receive instruction from a combination of the following: college and high school coaches, current and former college players, NBA clinicians, certified referees, personal trainers, semi and professional players and other sport experts.

Can parents stay and watch during camp?
Of course! Parents are more than welcome to watch their children in action! The only thing that we ask is that you limit the amount of interaction with your child during camp. It may make your child uncomfortable and not allow them full attention to the camp instruction.

Cancellation by Conditioned Minds Camps

In the unlikely event that the Extreme Action Basketball Camp cancels your camp session, we will refund only your camp registration fees. Camper waives any and all damages that may otherwise arise out of any camp cancellation and agrees to accept as liquidated damages said registration fees.

What is special about Conditioned Minds Camps & Clinics?

Conditioned Minds camps and clinics are nationally recognized as one of the best mental/physical leadership sports training systems in the country. The camps utilize training techniques developed for middle school, high school and college level teams.

Who are the camps for?

Boys and Girls (ages 7 – 17) who like sports and leadership development.

What will my child gain from attending a Conditioned Minds camp or clinic?

Every participant gains an understanding of how to become a more self-motivated student-athlete. They will learn by practicing specifically designed drills and techniques in an intense, but fun, setting.

Will campers get individual time with the coaches?

Our highly skilled instructors are able to make an impact with the individual attention to participants for those who seek extra help.

What are the benefits in returning to camp again and again?

Each time a participant returns, they work on mastering the lessons from previous camps. This strengthening encompasses the mental and physical aspects of our camp curriculum.
