EXTRA ACTIVITIES, PRODUCT & FEES

The Benedictine University camps offer some of the best activities in the business!

The Benedictine Camps offer extra activities to activate/improve the balance of volleyball and fun! Past activities have included swimming, attending an age-appropriate movie at the Cinemark Seven Bridges, Root beer floats, Pizza for all, and camp social with music and fun! (Note: Some activities are only available at overnight camps, day camp activities may be different. This year's activities will be shared with camper families via email from the Camp Director 4-5 days prior to camp.)

We want to avoid the exchange of cash by campers at camp, so the fee also includes bottled water throughout the events and during all lunches. The fee is always TBD by corresponding camp length/type, and availability. The activity fee will be approximately $15-$25 and is paid to the Camp Director at check-in.

  • Ratio: 1:10 staff-to-camper ratio

NIKE VOLLEYBALL CAMP FAQ

For general questions about our volleyball camps please see our FAQ page.

TEAM DISCOUNT

If you have a group of eight or more campers registering for the same camp, each camper is eligible for a discount. Please have someone contact the US Sports Camps office at 1-800-645-3226 with the names of each camper in the group and we will create a unique discount code for your group. Campers may then register individually through the website at their convenience and apply the offer code during check out. *Discount amount varies by program. Please call for details.

SCHOLARSHIPS

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.

Camps are open to any and all entrants, limited only by number, age, grade level and/or gender.
