"From 10 years ago, every summer I organize basketball trip in USA for young Italian basketball player. The first time that we been was 10 years ago, because we hear about a camp that is the oldest and one of the best basketball camp in USA. After been, we can say that is true. So we come back few times and every year always we know that we find a great basketball program, a great staff and great friend. And we can say that after had some different experiences, Red Auerbach Camp is the best and next summer we will make a long trip for to be there again!"

"I was one of those nervous (and crazy) parents leaving their kid for the first time, but I was so impressed that after I emailed you at 11:45 at night, within minutes you called me back. What better testament than that to their safety (even though you couldn't guarantee he wasn't kidnapped on the way from the cafeteria without knocking on his door at midnight ... ha ha ha). You made me feel a lot better when you responded to me right away."

"Despite all of my concerns about sending my 12 year old son overnight for a week, it was the absolute best program for many reasons. Day camp programs don't even come close to working with the committed basketball player. We found the Auerbach school featured talented professional coaches with impressive backgrounds, passion for the game and a dedication to teaching youth. You can tell they genuinely care about the development of their players both on and off the court The chance to meet boys from Iceland, Israel and various parts of the US, along with the School's emphasis on the importance of schoolwork and education proved to be a real highlight for our son. The Auerbach School prides itself on the number of students who come back year after year which really impressed us and made us want to be part of the Red Auerbach "Family" for years to come."

Mr. Curley's heartfelt speech to the students on the final day reminding the boys of the difference they can make in the life of another simply by reaching out and saying hello or shaking their hand was moving, and I believe that kind of character surpasses anything one can do on any court, field or course, and having that kind of heart makes so much more possible on the court. As Red Auerbach said himself, "I don't believe in statistics. There are too many factors that can't be measured. You can't measure a ballplayer's heart."

"My son Justas, from Lithuania, was part of the Auerbach School last summer and couldn’t have been happier for the time spent there. Living facilities were great, his coaches and teammates were helpful, friendly and proved to be very beneficial to his experience at camp. It showed him a life style to be a good basketball player. The camp made a great impression on my son who is excited to return next year and bring his young brother, Rokas, who is really very intrigued but what he has learned about the history of the camp. Thank you Mr. Curley for creating an excellent and caring program." Violeta, Lithuania
"2016 was the first time our son participated in The Red Auerbach basketball camp and it was a memorable experience for him. Matthew loved the entire experience at Nichols College and talked about it for weeks afterwards. He's a better player as a result of the week he spent at Auerbach. We've noticed a new sense of confidence in him, enhanced skills and an even stronger love of the game. He will definitely be back next year. Thanks for running such a fantastic camp!"

"Red Auerbach basketball school is exactly what you want from a camp. I attended this school as a camper my freshman year of high school. The bonding experience with my teammates helped me develop life-long friendships that I cherish to this day. That mixed in with tough training sessions had me ending the week as a much better player. After hour or morning individual training sessions were always made available by the coaching staff throughout the week. Years later I came back as a staff member. I was a referee and coached a team with players from Iceland, Italy, and from multiple states around the US.
In the new generation of players who play AAU year round, this is a great opportunity to take a step back and work on your game with some of the best coaches from around the world."
