Inside Camp '23

Our History

Sports Broadcasting

Former college sports information and TV professional David Siroty founded The Sports Broadcasting Camp in 2001 


We spent our first 15 years at the Yogi Berra Museum in Little Falls, New Jersey led by broadcasters Ian Eagle and Bruce Beck.   Now led by sports broadcasting veterans Dave Popkin, Tim Capstraw and Craig D'Amico, we transitioned to Montclair State University's School of Communication and Media and take full advantage of state-of-the-art TV and radio studios, classrooms and control rooms to provide campers with a first-class experience.  

Longtime Camp Director Dave Popkin has called games on over a dozen national TV and radio national networks. He is in his 20th year on the Seton Hall Basketball radio team, is the Voice of Northeast Conference hoops on CBS Sports Network and SNY, calls select Buffalo Bisons Triple A baseball games on ESPN 1520, college soccer and baseball on FS1, and various sports on ESPN3/ESPN+. He has also been an adjunct professor at Seton Hall University. 

Longtime Brooklyn Nets WFAN radio color commentator Tim Capstraw joins Pop as the lead instructor.  Capper has not missed a Nets game in more than 20 years! He has significant TV experience on NBA TV, YES, MSG, CBS Sports Network, and more. Capper is a former Division I player and head coach in both basketball and baseball at Wagner College. His youth coaching, camp experience and upbeat personality allow him to make a great connection with the students. He has been an adjunct professor at St. John's University.
