Camp Questions & Answers
How are campers placed in their training groups?
Training groups are based on a combination of event group/preference, current fitness level, season & personal best(s), and T&F experience. A change in groups can be accommodated if staff members leading those groups feel it is needed.
Can I come to camp alone or do I have to be a member of a team?
We welcome individual campers and teams.
It's a great place to meet new friends who share your enthusiasm for the sport and to have FUN!
Are the campers supervised throughout the camp?
Yes, campers are supervised by the coaches and staff. All staff members complete criminal and sex offender background checks before working the camp.
How and when will I receive my information packet with important camp details?
Well before the start of your camp (at least 3 weeks), you will receive a Information Packet which will include all the important details about camp: directions to camp, when to arrive, what to pack/ bring, camp address, and camp contact numbers and the Medical/Release form, etc.
Does the Health & Release Form need to be signed by a doctor?
