Welcome to Maine Gold Rush Basketball Camps
Maine Gold Rush 2020 Update: COVID-19 (May 6, 2020)
After a lot of soul-searching and discussion, we have decided to CANCEL all Maine Gold Rush team camps for the summer of 2020 after 21 consecutive summers. As you can imagine, this was not an easy decision after discussions with Colby College and many medical professionals. We have heard from many of you (including a number of players) and know how important camp is to you and your programs. For us it is also a great way to stay in touch with many special people.
These are some of the reasons for our decision:
Above all, protecting the health and safety of everyone involved is a responsible decision
CDC standards will continue to limit gatherings to 50 people. This would be nearly impossible in dining halls, dorms and on the courts. Testing is limited for medical staff. The fear of virus resurgence is a concern.
Insurance company limitations must follow CDC guidelines.
Possible MPA restrictions (some gyms are already closed for the Summer)
The situation regarding out of state teams and Canadian teams.
We're a team-building camp. Bonding and team development would be limited and that would deter from our philosophy and camp structure.
We certainly hope that you can have some types of Summer programs, local camps and leagues. We will stay in touch with all of you and you can be sure you will see us at your games next Winter.
Next Summer will open a new era in Maine Gold Rush at Colby College. We will be in the beautiful new Colby Athletic Center. The facility will be an amazing complex to run the camp. We are planning on all of you being there with us-safe and healthy!!!
Please stay in contact with us. We will miss all of you dearly. We appreciate all of you making Maine Gold Rush a great experience for us and are excited about the summer of 2021! Anything we can do to help you, please reach out.
Our best to you,
