Top 10 Housing Questions:

1. Do the dorms have air conditioning? 
Yes, all of our dorm rooms have air conditioning. You are also welcome to bring a fan if you wish, but it is not necessary.  In fact it gets very cold in the dorms and we recommend having a sweatshirt and extra blanket to bring with you.
 
2. Are the dorms monitored?
Yes, we are very careful in monitoring campers in their dorm rooms. We have Staff Members stay on each floor during camp and hold floor meetings in the evening. Dorms are also monitored during the afternoons and evenings when campers are in the dorm during free time.  At team camp, team moms are also there to help monitor dorms.  

3. Can I choose my roommate?
Yes, if you have another camper you would like to room with at an overnight Camp please make sure they list your name as their "Roommate Request". We cannot honor roommate requests from only one of the two parties. PLEASE make sure ahead of time you have contacted the other party and they are committed to coming to camp as well.

4. What if I do not have a roommate request?
If you do not request a roommate you will be paired with another camper of similar age who does not have a roommate.

5. Are there rooms with multiple beds available?
Yes, we have a number of triples and quads available that we make accessible to our campers. These are handled on a "first come-first serve" basis which means we cannot guarantee availability. If you are interested in getting on the Triple/Quad Request List, please send an e-mail to [email protected] 

6. Can Friends/Teams/Groups room near each other?
If you have two or more rooms of campers that would like to be housed near each other please indicate that in the "Near Roommates" section of the online registration.
  
7. What if the roommate I requested doesn't register or withdraws from camp?
If your requested roommate doesn't register for camp or withdraws for some reason you will be placed with another camper of a similar grade who is in need of a roommate as well.

8. Do the rooms have a refrigerator or ice machines?
No, the rooms do not have a refrigerator, but campers are able to bring their own small fridge.  There are no ice machines in the dorms, but Athletic Trainers can provide ice to injured campers at the fields.  

10. Can I bring a TV and Game Console?
Yes, campers are allowed to bring a TV and Game Console for their dorm room to use during free time.

11.  Are cell phones allowed?  

Yes.  Campers may have their own cell phones.  We ask that cell phones NOT be used during training time of camp.  We also ask that all phones be turned off at dorm curfew so as to not keep other campers awake.
