My child will not be able to register at the normal check-in time on Sunday. Can I check him/her in later than 4:30 PM?

We strongly encourage all campers to check in at the normal registration time between 2:30 PM and 4:30 PM. If you cannot make that time frame, however, there will be counselors available to assist you until 9:00 PM in the Potter Lobby. If you need special arrangements, please contact Summer Camp Coordinator Linda Jakob at ljakob@maryville.edu.

Will my son or daughter get the roommate he / she requested?

There are 2 campers per room for residents. We do our best to accommodate all roommate requests, but are not always able to fulfill them. All roommate preferences are considered and we try to accommodate the requests whenever possible or to an adjacent room.  Due to space limitations, we may or may not be able to accommodate all roommate preferences.  We ask that you keep in mind your son/daughter may not get the requested roommate, and list an alternate. No roommate changes will be made on the day of registration.

Are the campers playing soccer all day?

The campers will have training sessions in the morning, afternoon, and evening that generally last two hours. There is structured downtime, where the campers will be able to play soccer golf, hang out in the campus game room, or just relax. These times are subject to change as we work around the weather.
