This was held eight months before the "Malice in the Palace," yet there's never really ever been a time when leaving your kid unattended with Ron Artest seemed like a good idea.

Most sports camps put the focus on sportsmanship and playing as a team. Then there's the Terrell Owens Youth Football Camp. Not doubt each day's schedule looked something like this:

  • 9 – 9:30 — Touchdown Celebration Practice
  • 9:30 – 10:00 — Making Fun of the Quarterbacks at Camp
  • 10 – 10:15 — Scheduled Walking Out of Practice in a Huff
  • 10:15 – 10:45 — Driveway Exercise
  • 10:45 — Blaming Fellow Campers for Your Mistakes
  • 11 — Being Asked to Leave

#6 – Duke Football Camps

It seems laughable, but maybe there's a method to the madness. Attending a Duke Football Camp will make your son so bad at football that he'll have to focus on his academics. And by focusing on his academics, maybe he'll get a full academic scholarship to Duke.

The State of North Carolina clearly leads the nation in awful sports camps. Although if you are named Most Outstanding Camper at the Duke basketball or Charlotte Bobcats camps, chances are you'll receive a roster spot. Camps run by competent programs can't offer that.
