Some of best basketball camps in the country are held at local Bronx high schools. For instance, the Cardinal Spellman basketball camp is a week-long session run by Falcons coach Fred Opper. There are about 80 boys ages 8 to 17 at the camp.
Each day from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. the players go from station to station learning and working on the fundamentals of the game: shooting, passing, dribbling and rebounding. There is a great deal of individual instruction at Cardinal Spellman's basketball camp.
