What’s it like to attend K Academy?

“Each and every year I become extremely excited at the opportunity to coach at the Coach K fantasy camp. It is a span of days filled with great laughs and a ton of intensity on the court. The best part of the Academy is spending time with my Duke family. A family that continues to grow every year as new campers come in.”
