Our 2022 camp is currently sold out.
Held on Father’s Day weekend each year, the Eric Montross Father’s Day Basketball Camp provides a unique opportunity for dads and their children to spend quality time together on the Roy Williams Court at the Dean Smith Center.
Children develop their basketball skills and build character while having a great time bonding with their fathers on and off the court. Fathers learn coaching skills while they practice, play and compete alongside their children. Throughout the weekend, our camp emphasizes the importance of helping others and aims to plant the seeds of philanthropy in a new generation.
The camp is run by Eric Montross and an amazing group of current and former UNC basketball players as volunteer coaches — many of whom return year after year to support this great cause. The cost to attend camp is $525 for a dad and one child and $200 for each additional child. The camp is open to children between 7 and 13 years old. 100% of camp attendance fees directly benefit UNC Children’s Hospital.
The 2022 Camp has reached its full enrollment. If you would like to put your name on the waitlist, click here. If you can not attend the camp but would like to make a donation to the UNC Children’s Hospital, click here. For information on corporate sponsorships, click here.
Coins for Kids Jar
Campers frequently create their own ways to support UNC Children’s Hospital. Many of these ideas we have adopted for a year or two at camp, but filling the coin jars has stuck. Throughout the year, kids collect change in their “Coins for Kids” jar and we announce the total raised during the camp weekend. Quite simply, it’s a highlight! The kids love it, the dads love it and we love that our campers are thinking about ways to help the children at the hospital year-round.
Our campers have raised the following through their Coins for Kids jars:
But it doesn’t stop there! Many of our campers find other ways to give back by rolling up their sleeves and taking part in additional philanthropic projects in their own communities. At the end of our 25th year, we were made aware of so many campers dreaming up their own philanthropic projects, we just had to feature these stories on the website.
