Cascade Sports Camp was co-founded over 50 years ago in the summer of 1969 by Mr. Gleason Eakin & Coach Barry Adams | Since that time over 59,000 campers have attended CSC | Currently operating between 1100-1300 campers per summer while experiencing considerable growth the last 3 summers | Located 35 miles East of Salem on the Little North Fork of the Santiam River | Has hosted coaches & campers from all over the World; including but not limited to Australia, Canada, Germany, Russia, Croatia & South America | Increased capacity from 80 campers per week to 120+ per when it expanded from 3 full-courts to 4 full-courts + 2 half-courts in the seventies | Half-courts are dedicated to the “Help-List”; a concept unique to CSC where campers can receive 1 on 1 coaching specific to the individual skill that needs improvement | Holds a weekly “Mi-Bru-No” 3 on 3 championships. Mi-Bru-No is another concept unique to CSC. Mi-Bru-No is a 3 on 3 tournament in which the games are only 20 seconds long. This makes for a very exciting competition in which campers are encouraged to develop cooperation, late-game alertness, & team strategy | Coach Adams remembers bussing down all the campers into town in order to witness “Man walk on the Moon”. | Cascade Sports Camp continues to develop young players from all over the NW; most notably of late local talent A.J. Lapray (Sprague HS) who is Pepperdine University graduate, Avry Holmes (North Salem HS) who is a Clemson University graduate, Tanner Morgan (Sprague HS) who is currently playing at the University of Northern Colorado, and Payton Pritchard (West Linn HS) who is currently playing at the University of Oregon.
