Camp at UW-Eau Claire is now in its third year of offering one of the
premier camps in the Midwest. The overnight basketball camp has two,
five-day sessions that more than 600 girls have or will attend this
summer. The first session was held last week, and the second session
is set for June 29-July 3. A half-day camp for girls in grades 1-6 took
place earlier in June with more than 70 participants.
"The camps are a great opportunity for these
girls to develop competitively and personally," said Tonja Englund,
women's basketball coach and camp director. "Each day the campers
are involved in basketball fundamentals, drills, 5 on 5 games, contests
and motivational sessions."
There are 17 coaches on the camp staff this summer
including current and former Blugold women's basketball players and
local high school coaches. The coaches work individually with the girls
and lead the motivational sessions, Englund said, noting that the session
topics range from being a good role model to sportsmanship to academics.
"The emphasis of the camp is on developing fundamentals,

to develop well-rounded basketball players and give the girls a great
