Crusader Summer Camp
Thank you to everyone who attended camp this summer!
]2022 Camp weeks:
All weeks of camp held at:
Bergen Catholic HS
1040 Oradell Ave.
Camp runs Monday-Thursday from 9am-3pm.
Camp is for boys entering 3rd-9th grade in Sept. and intermediate-advance level.
This summer we are offering four weeks of camp at Bergen Catholic High School. Camp will be held both indoors and outside, utilizing five full courts. Players will be rotated inside the air conditioned Hoehl Gymnasium and will also utilize outdoor courts for games, contests, and skill-development sessions. All players will receive individualized instruction from Coach Billy Armstrong and staff consisting of Bergen Catholic / HS Coaches, former BC basketball players and current college players ranging from Division 1-3.
This camp is geared towards competitive players with travel or AAU level experience. A typical camp day consists of drills and skill development, games and contests. Players will be evaluated at camp and divided into teams to compete in a league format with playoffs at the end of each week. Camp will conclude on Thursday with a trophy presentation for individual awards, contest winners, and team champions.
A certified athletic trainer is on site full time to attend to all campers. Our certified trainer also can monitor any needs of the campers including Epi-Pens.

Just wanted to let you know, both my boys, John 8th grade and Kyle 6th grade both really enjoyed the camp and learned more than I could imagine. I watched them play the weekend after and hardly recognized them. We are lucky to have such a professionally run camp so close.

Lauren and Billy,
Thank you very much for the BC t-shirt you gave Mark yesterday. But more importantly, this note was written to both you to say, ” thank you”. A sincere thank you for reinforcing the values we try so hard to teach our children. You both contribute so much to this program. And it is because of your hard work, dedication and, by the examples you both set, that makes your program so special. The boys just think they are learning basketball skills but, we parents know they are learning so much more. Because of you both, our children are learning skills that will make them better adults. Thank you both for all you do.
Please know that every time Mark wears this shirt (and he will a lot), he will remember why he earned it: not because he made a winning basket at your camp but, because he was rewarded for doing the right thing. A true winner does the right thing each and every day and your shirt will be a reminder of that lesson. Thank you again.

Matthew LOVES going to your camp, as he always feels accepted, even though he has athletic limitations. I wanted to email you to let you know what a difference you are making in children’s lives. Matthew has autism, he is high functioning and mainstreamed, however his social skills limit his ability to make friends, and unfortunately he gets picked on or excluded quite a bit. This year the lack of acceptance took a toll on Matthew and each day has been a struggle to get him to go to school because he does not like being around kids, since he feels so alone. However, the one thing that put a smile on his face and he said he would do is your camp! I cannot tell you what those words meant to us. You give hope to kids who are hopeless. You create an atmosphere of acceptance and kindness. You are making a difference! Thank you for being a light in the darkness for Matt this summer, and for encouraging him to be positive and make the best of life. We appreciate ALL that you do and only wish your message could be spread in every school daily! Have a great day and THANK YOU!!

I just wanted you to know that I had a great time this season playing for you. I learned more from you than any other Coach I have played for. I have a tremendous amount of respect for you as a person and Coach and your basketball programs and camp. I just wanted to let you know that. Thanks for everything and I will see you at camp.

Just wanted to drop a note to say thank you for a great week of basketball camp. The boys enjoyed the program and had fun. I was very impressed on organization and professionalism of the entire staff. Most important, Billy’s coaching on core values, leadership and passion for the game. Thanks.

I just wanted to tell you how much fun Mikey had at camp last week. This was only the second time he had been to a camp, and I can’t express how much he loved it. Not only did he get to play his favorite sport, he learned so much from Billy and made new friends.
Thank you for providing him with such a wonderful experience!

Daniel has loved working on his basketball game in both the camps and classes. He gets so much out of it both in basketball instruction and life lessons. He is aging out of the camps and classes now. But I wanted to let you and Billy know how wonderful and inspirational it has been for him.
