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 Boys Dorm Lobby (building #14).  If you need special arrangements, please contact Summer Camp Coordinator, Linda Jakob at ljakob@maryville.edu.

 Will my Camper get the roommate requested?

There are 3 campers per room for Residents. Please be aware that there will be a minimum of 3 campers to a room for Residents. We hope this information will help you plan with friends and teammates for desired rooming requests. If you request two campers to a room, there will be a third placed in the room as well or they may be separated. Due to space limitations, we may or may not be able to accommodate all roommate preferences. We ask that you keep in mind your Camper may not get the requested roommate, and list alternates. All roommate preferences are considered and we try to accommodate the request whenever possible or place in an adjacent room. No roommate changes will be made on the day of registration.

Roommates will be disclosed during registration check-in.

 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, various recreational activities that will be set up, Goalie wars, tennis, or just relax in the dorm. These times are subject to change as we work around the weather.

Campers are divided into teams with Bantams the youngest, then Crusaders, Juniors and Seniors.  Groupings are dependent on how many campers at each age group and field accommodations.  We want to challenge the campers, but we also want them to play with their friends and enjoy the camp experience.  The training they receive is based on our evaluation with all four groups utilizing the same curriculum.
