Schedule and Program
Q - For the Junior High and Senior High basketball and soccer camps, do these happen at the same time?
A - Yes. They will be run as two separate camps during the same week. The campers will have their skill sessions separately but will eat together and participate in the special programming together.

A - Registration happens each Monday from between 10:00-11:00am in the Student Life Center (SLC). Please arrive during this time.
Q - When do things finish up on Friday?
A - Camper vs. Staff all-star game starts at 2:00pm. Cleanup of rooms starts at 4:30pm. The banquet starts at 6:00pm and usually ends around 7:45pm.

A - Yes. The banquet is included in the cost of camp for each camper. Only non-campers need to buy tickets for the banquet.
Q - How long does the banquet last?
A - The banquet starts at 6:00pm and we are done by around 7:30pm.
Q - What happens at the banquet?
A - We start with a nice meal (usually some form of salad, chicken, veggies, dessert, coffee, etc.) followed by a short program. The program consists of presenting campers with various awards from the week, introducing the coaches and staff on stage, and watching the camp video from the week (which every camper gets a free copy of). We then dismiss everyone and campers and coaches usually say their final good-byes, take team pictures, and coaches give the campers their evaluation sheets from the week.
Q - How many people usually stay for the banquet?
A - Not everyone stays (or can stay) for the banquet, but usually about 90% of the campers do stay. We also have a large number of parents come and join us for the banquet. We feel like it is a great way for the parents to see who their kid(s) has been with for the week, what they've been doing, and how much fun they had.

A - We invite you to come Friday afternoon to watch playoff action. We strongly discourage visiting during the camp week.

Q - What is your cell phone policy?
A - We allow campers to bring cell phones to camp however, we do not allow them to use them during any sessions or program events.

Q - My daughter is interested in a attending two volleyball camps. Is there any difference between the weeks. For example, if she were to do two weeks, would she be doing essentially the same program?
