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.

4. Do I need to bring a medical form?

Medical forms and liability waivers will be sent with the confirmation email.

Please download and fill out the forms. Once complete, you will need to upload the forms to your registrant's profile. YOU MUST HAVE BOTH FORMS ON FILE PRIOR TO ATTENDING CAMP. Follow these steps to upload your forms.

5. What should my camper bring to camp?

  • Gym shoes
  • T-shirts, shorts, and several pairs of athletic socks
  • Gym bag for extra T-Shirts, shorts, or socks
  • Money for Camp Bank
  • Overnight Campers will also need:
  • Pillow and bed linens for a twin size bed
  • Bath towels, wash cloths, and pajamas
  • Toiletries (toothpaste, soap, shampoo, etc.)
  • Alarm clock

*Please label all belongings. The camp is not responsible for any lost items.

6. Can my camper bring his cell phone, iPod, or any other electronic devices?

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.

7. Will my camper be able to go back to his dorm room during the day?

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.

8. How can we ensure the safety of the dining card and dorm key?

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.

9. When does a commuter camper need to be picked up during Overnight camp?

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.

CAMP BANK QUESTIONS

1. What is the camp bank?

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.

2. How much should my camper have in the camp bank?

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.

VISTING/PARKING QUESTIONS

1. Can I come and watch my camper?

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.

2. Where do we park when we visit?

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.

RESIDENCE HALLS/MEAL QUESTIONS

1. Where do campers sleep overnight? Will they be air conditioned?

Campers will sleep in University of Maryland student dorms located on campus. These dormitories will be air conditioned.

2. Will my camper get the roommate he requested? What if my camper does not have a requested roommate?

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 basketballcamp@umd.edu. 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.

3. How does supervision work in the dormitories?

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.

4. Where will campers be eating meals? What if my camper has allergies?

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 (basketballcamp@umd.edu) so we can make alternative arragnements with the dining hall.
