Dates set for Calipari's Pro Camps

Dates were announced Thursday for John Calipari's annual Pro Camps, in which participants will have a chance to learn from and interact with players from Kentucky's 2012 national championship basketball team who are headed to the NBA.

Pro Camp I is Aug. 1-2 and Pro Camp II is Aug. 3-4 at the Joe Craft Center and Memorial Coliseum.

Each camp offers two separate sessions divided by age group.

The cost for each camp is $199 and includes a T-shirt, two days of instruction, competitions, an autograph session and a camp team photo with the featured UK pros.

Each camp will feature a different set of players, who will be named at a later date.

The morning sessions of each camp, for kindergartners through fifth-graders, run from 8:30 a.m. to noon, with check-in starting at 7 a.m.

The afternoon sessions, for sixth- through 12th-graders, go from 1:30 to 5 p.m., with check-in beginning at noon.
