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
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

Traditionally we have a 6 to 1 camper to coach ratio.
Cell phone use is okay during down time in the program (meals,

Any electronic games or audio players should be left at home or

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.

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
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.

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 9-18 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.
