K Academy takes place in historic Cameron Indoor Stadium and surrounding basketball facilities.
To be eligible to participate in K Academy, you must be at least 35 years of age or older and physically able to engage in the various camp activities and games. Enrollment is capped at 80 participating campers to keep the experience intimate and full of personal basketball attention.
Each K Academy participant may be accompanied by one guest or one family member. The guest is welcome to attend all social events, meals, and observe the basketball festivities in Cameron.
Each K Academy participant is responsible for their own transportation to and from Durham, North Carolina. Duke Athletics does offer an on-site travel assistant, Kathy Kwarciak, who can help you book your flights. The number to call is 919-668-2210. Hotel check in will begin at 12 pm on the first day of the Academy. Checkout begins at 11 am on Sunday, however, due to the length of the program on Sunday, we will arrange baggage storage. Flights out of Durham should be booked for no earlier than 4 pm.
The Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club will be the home site for the K Academy. The luxurious four-star resort is located on the Duke campus and is just minutes from the basketball facilities.
Breakfast and lunch for all attendees will be served buffet style in a private dining area. Each night will feature a different social program (draft night, team meals, auction) and dinner.
For your safety, a team physician will be on call and available throughout K Academy.
The one-time cost of $10,000 includes meals, your hotel base rate and all of the camp amenities. The payment is accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, and as we anticipate a full house of 80 participants, you are encouraged to send a check or money order, along with your application form immediately. A portion of your payment ($4,000) is a tax deductible donation to Duke University.
A $2,000 nonrefundable deposit will be kept if the camper cannot attend. If the camper cannot attend and their space is not able to be filled by May 1, the entire payment of $10,000 will be non-refundable.
