When you have successfully completed the online application and your credit card payment has been accepted, you will receive a confirmation email to the address provided on the online registration form. You will also receive a Camper Medical Form and Liability Waiver that must be returned prior to the start of camp.
Overnight Camp check-in for camps held at the University of Maryland will be on the first day of camp from 3:00-5:00pm for both commuter and overnight campers. Camp will end on the final day at noon.
Yes! There is a (minimum) $100 deposit due with the online application. The remaining balance must be paid prior to the start of camp.
Medical forms, liability waivers and medication administration authorization forms will be sent with your confirmation email.
Please download and fill out the forms. All campers must have a medical form and liability waiver on file prior to attending camp. Any campers that require medication during camp must also have the medication administration authorization form completed and signed by the prescribing physician. Follow the steps below to upload your forms.
*Please label all belongings. The camp is not responsible for any lost items.
Campers will not be able to use cell phones, iPods, or any other electronic device during any camp activities. However, campers are allowed to bring such devices and are highly advised to leave them in their dorm room in which they will be safe. Again, the camp is not responsible for any lost items.
Camp is structured so that campers will only be in the dormitories in the morning before camp activities and at night when camp activities are over. Managers and camp coaches will be with campers all day. However, if a camper needs to go back to his dorm room, a staff member will accompany him.
The only time campers will physically have their dining card and dorm key will be during meals and overnight. Camp coaches will collect cards and keys after meals and redistribute them before meals and walking to the dormitory at night. This prevents campers from misplacing cards and keys and serves as another way of taking attendance.
Commuter campers will be picked up at 9pm each night, except for the final day of camp which will end at 12 noon for all campers.
On the first day of camp, campers will be allowed to deposit cash and personal checks into the Camp Bank. The Camp Bank allows campers to spend their money on snacks, drinks, late night pizza, and Maryland Basketball gear from the official camp store without having the burden of carrying cash.
The amount depends on how much you and your camper thinks is necessary. However, any remaining money left in the camper’s Camp Bank account will be returned to the campers at check-out.
Yes! Parents and guests are welcome to visit camp at any time. A full and complete schedule of camp events will be provided during check-in.
Parking passes will be distributed during check-in. Parking will also be free in Lots 4, 9 and 11 on weekends and after 4:00 pm on weekdays. Please obey all university parking regulations. The camp is not responsible for any tickets while visiting. The University of Maryland Athletics Department does not control parking and we apologize for any inconvenience this causes.
Campers will sleep in University of Maryland student dorms located on campus. These dormitories will be air conditioned.
When registering online, you will have the option to request a roommate. As long as the roommate requested also requests your camper, they will be matched together. If your camper does not have a roommate request, we will pair him with someone as close to his age as possible. We will not know until one week prior to camp how many (if any) triple or quad rooms we will have available for campers. Please submit any requests for triple/quad rooms to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once we receive our rooming assignments, these rooms will be allocated in a first-come first-serve basis based on the date of the email request. Thank you in advance for your understanding.
There will be managers or camp staff placed by all entrances and exits of the dormitory as well as in rooms on each floor. During lights-out, managers will conduct a room check to ensure all campers are in their rooms. Rooms can be locked only from the inside and only the campers have keys to the room. There will also be Resident Hall personnel at the main desk of the dormitory for any questions concerning lost or spare keys and safety. The exterior doors of the dormitory will also be locked with key-card access that only coaches and campers have.
Campers will have meals at the University of Maryland Dining Hall. Camp personnel will bring any medication given from parents and guardians to any meals.
If your child has specific allergies, please contact us as soon as possible via email (email@example.com) so we can make alternative arragnements with the dining hall.
Yes, we do offer a 30% discount to University of Maryland, College Park staff members. This discount can only be redeemed for direct family members of the staff member.
