"Fired Up Dixie, Fired Up ... HEY!"
The spirit at Dixie, unrivaled by other camps across the country, is what brings the camp together. "Fired Up Dixie" is as Dixie as Apple Pie is American ... watch the video
The unknown author describes enthusiasm this way. It is the inspiration that makes us “wake up and live”. It puts spring in our step, joy in our hearts, and a twinkle in our eyes. It transforms a person with potential into a producer. It is that intangible quality that makes us great, that pulls us out of the mediocre and commonplace and builds our self-esteem. It cries to the world, “I’ve got what it takes”. Enthusiasm is the keynote of life that inspires others and gives people the confidence that they can make a significant difference in the world.

Enthusiasm is the one word that best describes the Dixie Basketball Camp. Each summer over 500 aspiring basketball players descend on beautiful Summit, Mississippi for a week filled with incredible enthusiasm and spirit that is unlike any camp experience anywhere.

ARE YOU FIRED UP?!? Yes sir, fired up, SIR!! The spirit of Dixie resonates throughout the camp every July as we come together as a “team”.
What do you think about sweat? Sweat, Sweat, we love sweat, SIR!! Nothing can deter the journey of a Dixie camper. He is fired up, motivated, and does not allow anything to get the best of him. In short, “he’s Dixie trained”!

Every afternoon in the fine arts auditorium at Southwest Mississippi Community College, the campers of the Dixie Basketball Camp create a special spirit and enthusiasm that denotes pride and passion. Cheers, inspiring words and stories, and entertainment that is unique to say the least, create an environment that stimulates the coaches and players and inspires them to “be the best they can be”.

General II has taken the reins from the original General and continues to build Dixie into a unique and motivating experience that brings campers back to Summit year after year. It is hard to explain. You have to be there to understand. Now in our 47th year, sons of former Dixie campers go home and have fun sharing the stories and experiences of Dixie with their Dads.

The Spirit of Dixie, yes, it is real and a vital part of what makes the Dixie Basketball Camp a “one of a kind” basketball camp experience.
