Since 1993 Sarah has grown Behn Basketball to be the largest and most successful camp in New England. Over the past 18 years she has cultivated an expert group of directors, some of which have been with her for all 18 years, to help teach her curriculum at our various locations. Her passion for teaching, attention to fundamentals, and love of basketball has helped develop a unique group of loyal coaches who return to camp summer after summer.

I want to thank you for the great week my daughter, Madeline, had at camp. She really enjoyed every aspect of the camp in Melrose and we are so happy about all you were able to squeeze into a day. It is quite obvious that you know how to run a fun, well-organized camp where kids are really learning and polishing skills. Thanks again.

Sincerely, Maryann Bouchard

This was my best week of summer. I love basketball and love playing the Behn Camp Coaches. James and Jen are the best.  I promise I'm working on my freethrows to show you next summer!
