Kentucky Blue-Chip Camp (Boys)

Dear Player,

Exposure is the key for any player in this day and age to receive a college basketball scholarship. With cutbacks in staff and budget by colleges nationwide, and fewer days to evaluate players, college coaches overlook more and more deserving players every year.

With this being the case, I hope you will consider attending the Rick Bolus High Potential “Blue-Chip” Basketball Camp for the summer of 2016, at Georgetown College, with all air-conditioned facilities, in easy-to-reach Georgetown, KY, near the junction of I-75 and I-64, and just 12 miles north of Lexington, KY.

I am entering my 43rd year as a basketball scout and my 37th year as a camp director. Over the years, I have observed over 30,000 players attend my camp. Among those attendees have included NBA players such as Rex ChapmanDarren HancockAllen HoustonJimmy JacksonDan LanghiBrad MillerScott Padgett, Felton SpencerDeJuan Wheat, and Norris Cole as well as NCAA Division I players like Glendon AlexanderJeff BrooksRichie FarmerTravis FordPat GrahamJack IngramA.J. MoyeDrew NeitzelLarry O’BannonJared OdleJohn PelphreyTy RogersScott SuttonSean Sutton, and Albert White. Some attendees have actually gone on to excel in other sports such as 1999 NFL Draft Number 1 Pick Tim Couch and former Major League Baseball pitcher Derek Lowe.

Many college games on television have a past camper performing. For example, from 2010 to 2014, at least one former camper played on an NCAA Final 4 Team. Three out of four teams in the 2005 NCAA Final 4 had a former camper playing for them, and three former campers were members of the University of Louisville’s 2013 National Championship team. Also, several campers throughout the years have been listed in the Sporting News Basketball Yearbook for the boy’s High School All-American Teams.

This camp could well be the avenue for you to obtain a scholarship. This summer I will be offering two sessions for campers to attend. From June 26-30, a 5 day/4 night camp will be held for $399 where each camper will play a minimum of 10 games. Then on July 11-12, a 2 day/1 night camp will be held for $180 and each camper will play 5 games. Both events will include team practices, stations, and guest speakers. Cafeteria meals and on-campus lodging is included with both camp tuitions.

Over 500 college coaches nationwide representing all levels of play will be invited to attend both camp formats. Last summer college coaches, representing all levels of play nationwide, and scouting services observed or inquired about the High Potential “Blue-Chip” Basketball Camp.

Camp Internet coverage including photos and video highlights will be provided on my website,, as well as on my Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube accounts along with further Internet coverage by blogger Ron Harrison on his web page,, which has over 4,000,000 hits. A camp report will be available by early August to almost 2,000 colleges across the country on my webpage as well. Why pay higher prices which most camps charge when you can pay less to attend the Rick Bolus High Potential “Blue-Chip” Basketball Camp and get more exposure!

There is a spot for you at “Blue-Chip” regardless of your playing ability. Your college scholarship offers could be broadened by attending. Should you be flying under the radar screens of college coaches, a good showing at “Blue-Chip” will get your name on road maps of recruiters. Finally, if you just want to improve your game for the 2016-17 season, “Blue-Chip” is just the place for you.

My camp could be the “difference maker” for you to receive a college scholarship. Contact us for a free brochure at [email protected]. Hope to see you at one of the camp’s sessions this summer in Georgetown, KY-You won’t regret it!
