Facilities

Campers will have access to the same facilities that benefit all student-athletes at Drake University. Drake's facilities are widely considered at the forefront of the Missouri Valley Conference.

The Knapp Center, a $12.5 million sports and recreation center, was completed in October, 1992. This facility is the "Home of the Bulldogs" for men's and women's basketball, volleyball and other selected sporting events. The arena seats 7,002. The Knapp Center houses five universal basketball courts that will be used for all Drake basketball camps.


The Bell Center, Drake's recreation and athletic facility, will also be used by Drake campers. The Bell Center includes three basketball courts that will be open simultaneously to the Knapp Center's courts throughout camp.

With 8 basketball courts open for games, practice & free shooting throughout the camp, campers will have every opportunity to gain the skills needed to succeed in the winter!
