Our Story

It began with one private training session in Hollywood, Florida. One training session led to more. Parents began to trust our process. More training sessions transformed into weekly clinics. Suddenly, kids and parents alike started buying in. Weekly clinics developed into a summer day camp. Word of mouth spread and the Step It Up name gained traction. Before too long, the day camp morphed into a small sleep away camp.
Finally, the once small 15-camper sleep away camp quickly became the 275-camper, 45-staff member summer experience that will never be forgotten. Step-it-Up became a household name.

Step It Up has been able to provide a rounded experience for the Orthodox Jewish Basketball world and beyond. Not only are we able to foster the critical cultural values instilled within the home, but also provide the necessary accommodations for all religious needs. Step It Up is truly one of a kind: a hardwood heaven combined with an inspiring Jewish experience while still maintaining the nurturing Summer Camp environment.

We believe in quality.
We believe in our craft.

The professional grade facilities at camp include: Five full size courts, a college varsity weight room, three yoga studios, a full athletic training center, an Olympic sized pool, and a first-class outdoor athletic center. Our world class facilities are necessary for the developing hooper to make strides that they’ve never made before.

Step It Up is the premier Summer Experience for the motivated basketball player.

Tucked away in the great summer weather of upstate New York is Hobart College – our home for 6 weeks out of the year.


Step It Up Skills Development Camps allow athletes to improve fundamental skills and become better players through on-court training and off-court educational sessions.


Basketball, and sports in general, have the ability to teach kids many life lessons. And that’s why at Step It Up we attempt to not only teach kids on the court but also hopefully teach them some important life lessons off of it as well. To us, some of the most important life skills and lessons that can be taught through youth basketball.
