Campers will reside in the dorms on campus and are assigned by age and roommate requests. If you have a roommate request, and have not already given it to us, please do so as soon as possible. Roommate requests are not guaranteed, if you don't have a roommate request, you will be placed in a room with someone near your age. It will be a great opportunity to meet someone new!

Bathrooms: Shared
Linens: Not provided
Air-conditioning: Yes
Pool: Yes
Suggested Spending Money: $40


The staff live in the dormitories with the campers and participate in evening activities. Drugs, alcohol and tobacco are strictly prohibited, and constitute, along with general misconduct, grounds for dismissal from camp without a refund.


There will be optional swim time throughout the week. Please pack accordingly (bathing suit and pool towel).


Transportation is not provided by the camp to or from any airports. Bradley International Airport, serving Hartford and Springfield, Massachusetts, is approximately 30 minutes from the College by car. Car rental agencies are available at the airport. Peter Pan Bus Lines and Amtrak train stations are located at One Union Place in Hartford. From there, you can take a taxi to campus. For schedules and fares, please call Peter
Pan Bus Lines at (800) 343-9999 or Amtrak at (800) 872-7245.


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.

    August 8, 2016: The coaches, especially the student coaches, were excellent! The only complain I have is how slow check-in was on the first day. Otherwise, an amazing experience for my child.

    My daughter loved this camp!

    August 22, 2016: My daughter loved this camp! She loved making new friends and the opportunity to play with the boys, which she believes makes her better. She will definitely attend next year and tell her teammates to join. The coaches were great and I hope they consider an overnight camp for the girls. Thank you Coach Cosgrove. It was a great camp!
