CAN I VISIT MY CHILD WHILE THEY ARE ATTENDING CAMP?
You are welcome to come and watch any session your child is attending. If you need to remove your child for any reason, make sure their counselor is notified.
WHO IS RESPONSIBLE IF MY CHILD IS INJURED OR NEEDS MEDICAL ATTENTION WHILE AT CAMP?
If your child is injured during camp, they will be taken to our Athletic Trainer immediately, and the Athletic Trainer will determine what action is required. If necessary, the Athletic Trainer will contact the parent/guardian and discuss care options. We can take the camper to UI Sports Medicine or the UI Emergency Department. Cost for treatment of injuries and/or hospitalization is the responsibility of the parent/guardian. We will have your insurance information from your online registration.
WHO DO I TALK TO IF MY CHILD NEEDS TO TAKE MEDICATION WHILE THEY ARE ATTENDING CAMP?
When you go through the check-in process, make certain that you stop at the Athletic Trainers table and discuss your child’s medication.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A RESIDENT AND COMMUTER?
• A resident camper sleeps in the dorms with us at night and a commuter camper leaves after the final session each day to sleep off campus with family or friends.
WHAT IS PROVIDED IN THE DORM ROOMS?
• Two beds, two desks, two chairs, a blanket, a pillow, a dresser, and a sink. The showers and bathroom are down the hall, and you should bring appropriate clothes and shoes to go back and forth. NO towels are provided.
WHAT SHOULD CAMPERS BRING TO CAMP?
• All campers should bring a reusable water bottle, snacks, and extra cash (for camp store). Overnight campers should bring shower towels, toiletries, and any additional bedding (sheets, pillow, blanket) they prefer.
HOW ARE DORM ROOMMATES ASSIGNED?
• When you fill out your online registration, there is a place to request a roommate. If two campers request each other and the applications are submitted more than two weeks before the camp start date, it will happen. If the roommate request is left blank, we will assign a roommate attending the same camp and near the same age. If you request a roommate late, we will do our best to accommodate but cannot guarantee it will happen.
AM I REQUIRED TO SUBMIT MY MEDICAL RELEASE?
• THIS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT, AS YOUR CHILD WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO PARTICIPATE UNTIL THE MEDICAL RELEASE FORM OR A COPY OF THEIR PHYSICAL IS RECEIVED. When you register online, you will be required to provide your insurance information. In addition, a medical release form or a copy of the camper’s physical is required. You can download a copy of a medical release form from our website and once completed it can either be uploaded to our camp website or brought to check-in on the first day of camp.
