Please include your travel plans with your registration, or e-mail your travel plans to email@example.com,or call the office (914-964-6540) with your travel plans to schedule a pick-up/drop-off. Please include the following:
The canteen is a physical store location varies based on the facility, where we sell Five-Star gear, snacks and drinks. The canteen is also a service that is provided to the campers, similar to a debt or credit account. When you arrive on campus you will be asked if you want to deposit any money in the canteen. Whatever amount you wish to deposit will become the amount of credit you have in the store. The canteen can also be used to purchase items forgotten at home (toothbrush, soap etc.) because the canteen staff will go into town each day to purchase these requested items. At the end of camp any unspent money will be returned to you in full.
If you hold your money and wish to make cash purchases you can but at your own risk. Any money you lose or that is potentially stolen (left your door unlocked, etc) cannot be replaced. The money you put into account cannot be lost or stolen. In fact you can store your money with us and not spend any and have it all returned at the end. The Canteen will also hold on to any valuables such as plane tickets, I-pods, jewelry etc.
What is the coach to camper ratio?
Traditionally we have a 6 to 1 camper to coach ratio.
Cell phone use is okay during down time in the program (meals, or just before lights out). Cell phones should be checked in and out of the canteen, or locked in a safe place in your dorm room. Any electronic games or audio players should be left at home or locked in your dorm room. Our staff is not responsible for watching your items during game play and instructional times.
All activities offered at Five-Star are designed with the camper’s basketball development in mind. Station instruction, individual instruction and game play are combined to help each camper reach their full potential as a basketball player. In some camps, additional classroom or on-court lecture time, basketball video or other instruction may be provided. Each camper will spend the majority of their time outside of meals and sleep, involved inactive, basketball related activity.
No swimming is allowed at any of our camp sites, regardless of facilities, as we do not hire trained lifeguards on staff.
Campers stay at the College Dormitories on the college campuses.
We generally won't find out the exact dorm until the week of camp, although the dorms we have historically stayed in are listed on each camp's individual info page. Dorm locations will be sent out in the pre-camp update e-mail, usually about a week prior to the event
Unless otherwise noted, specific camps such as HOOPS, UCF and Duncanville Fieldhouse will utilize local hotels.
At most of our college locations, the dorm rooms fit two campers. Some sites offer rooms that accommodate three and four camper. However, since our dorm assignments can vary from year to year, Five-Star operates under the understanding that dorm rooms will house 2 campers per room.
We will honor roommate requests if space allows. We understand that campers are, in some cases, traveling long distances and wish to be roomed with their friends. With that in mind we will do our best to accommodate your request. Please place roommate requests in advance by noting on the application card, emailing or writing. If when you arrive you are not roomed together, we will attempt to room you together during check-in.
All other campers will be roomed based on age and home location.
Please Note – at most college sites, we are assigned two person rooms, so we will not be able to accommodate three person room requests. We will do our best to put two of the campers together and have the third camper as close as possible. Groups of more than three can request to room with their team name or group name and will be placed as near each other as possible.

There are coaches on every floor of every dorm with the campers. We maintain at least an 8:1 camper to staff supervision ratio. Our well-trained staff monitors all activities including meals and dorms/hotel/bunks.
All of our sites are open to coaches and parents to view at all times activities are planned. However, we are unable to offer accommodations or meals for anyone attending as a spectator.
Each camp, regardless of the minimum age requirement, is divided into separate leagues initially based on age and experience level, and then adjusted to fit the needs of each individual camper’s skill level. Camps for 10-18 years old will be split into 3 or 4 divisions, including an "Ivy League" division for the younger campers. Camps for 11-18 years old will be split into 2 or 3 divisions. Our NBA division is reserved for High School Varsity players, and is offered at all camp locations.
Campers will complete stations and individual instruction within their leagues with players of similar age and skill level.
A physical and copy of latest immunizations is required for all campers attending sessions at Ramapo College. There is no specific form needed, the forms supplied by your doctor will suffice but copies must be presented at Check-in.
At all other camps, a physical is only required if you did not pass your previous physical during the school year. If for some reason you have not passed a physical -then we will need a copy from your doctor indicating you are physically able to participate in camp.
NOTE: For all camps, you are required to complete the Parent/Camper Waiver form and bring it to check-in.
Please let the Athletic Trainer know at Check-In.
Yes. We hire nationally certified athletic trainers that work for their respective high school or college and have worked with basketball teams and athletes. Student trainers assist our head trainer at most camp sites, some sites will have multiple certified trainers on staff.
