Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week. In addition, campers will be evaluated and then split up into smaller groups according to age and ability. A closing ceremony will take place shortly after camp check-out on the last day. Parents are invited to attend!
Housing & Roommates
Campers will reside in Grubbs Quadrangle dormitories on campus. Campers will have single and double rooms (assigned by age and roommate requests). Double rooms are limited and the Director will try to accommodate roommate requests giving younger campers priority. When several campers request multiple roommates, arrangements will be worked out with campers Sunday evening. Campers who do not request a roommate may be placed in a double room so if you prefer a single room please make that request. Roommate requests are not guaranteed. If you don't have a roommate request, you may be placed in a room with someone near your age. It will be a great opportunity to meet someone new!
Linens: Not provided
Room Key Deposit: $20

A detailed camper registration packet containing check in location, health/release forms, emergency contact numbers, and a checklist of things to bring will be emailed to all registered campers in the Spring. The US Sports Camps health and release forms do not require a doctor's signature and they will be collected on the first day of camp. The State of Connecticut requires a copy of camp participants’ most recent physical and record of immunizations, shots, etc., in addition to the US Sports Camps health and release form.
We cannot offer scholarships due to NCAA regulations. Our affiliation with NCAA coaches and schools puts us in a position where any scholarship money can be seen as an inducement to a future collegiate athlete. This puts our coaches and our host universities in jeopardy of damaging their status with the NCAA and incurring penalties at the hands of their organizing body.
