Campers will stay in the Connor Dorms on the UNC campus. Each dorm room will house two individuals, and camp staff and counselors will be spread out throughout each floor. Roomates are assigned by gender, age and roommate requests.
Campers with play ultimate on the UNC Hooker Fields. Campers have access to three regulation size fields and one 90x50 yard field. All fields are turf. The fields are located at the corner of South Rd. and Country Club Blvd. Chapel Hill, NC.
While the Nike Ultimate Camp at UNC is heavily focused on improving your Ultimate skills, campers will have plenty of social time. There will be many fun evening activities planned throughout the week which may include disc games, movies, skits and more.
We provide a ratio of 1 staff member for every 8 campers. This ensures lots of one-on-one attention and teaching for each camper.
The Nike Utimate Camp counselors and staff are hand-selected based on their ability to lead and supervise. We will have a staff member available for campers during all hours of the night should they need assistance. Campers will be transported to a local hospital in case of an emergency.
We are lucky that in NC inclement weather during the summer does not last very long. We will continue play during rain, but during thunderstorms we will move indoors to work on fitness or have additional classroom time.
Weekend Stayovers: Weekend stayovers are not available at this location
Designated Airport: Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU)
Nike Ultimate Camps do not provide transportation to/from camp from airport, train stations or bus depots. If you have a camper arriving by air who is deemed an “unaccompanied minor” by the airlines and must be met by a camp staff or shuttle company employee, there will be a fee that needs to be paid in advance of camp. You will still have to arrange transportation to/from camp. Please call 1-800-645-3226 two weeks prior to camp to provide camper’s flight and shuttle information.
A detailed camper registration packet containing check in location, health/release forms, emergency contact info, and a list of things to bring will be emailed to all registered campers in the Spring. Our health and release forms do not require a doctor's signature and they will be collected on the first day of camp.
