The Wisconsin Basketball Yearbook Exposure Camp began in the summer of 1993 as the "Be The Best" Wisconsin Basketball Yearbook High Profile Camp at Carthage College in Kenosha.
The name and location of the camp changed in 1996 when the Wisconsin Basketball Yearbook Exposure Camp moved to Lawrence University in Appleton.
In June of 2006, a second WBY Exposure Camp was added at Viterbo University in La Crosse.
The camp now is held exclusively at Viterbo University, a NAIA Division II school.
The summer of 2019 will mark the 26th year of the camp, which annually attracts 120 of the premier high school players from throughout Wisconsin.
The WBY Exposure Camps bring together top high school boys’ basketball players for three days of intense and spirited competition. Participating athletes receive individualized instruction from winning college basketball coaches and learn the advanced offensive and defensive skills required for competition at the collegiate level. College basketball coaches from throughout the Midwest attend the camp as spectators to view the future prospects.
