OUTDOOR CAMP FAQ

Where is Camp located?
Parade Grounds – exact field to be announced.

What precautions and protocols are in place to maximize safety and minimize the risk of spreading infection?
View our Return to Play safety protocols.

Do campers have to follow special rules?

Yes, campers must abide by all safety protocols in order to better ensure the safety of campers and coaches. These rules include distancing whenever possible, hand sanitizing, face coverings, and more.

Do campers have to wear masks?

When not playing they must wear masks at all times. During play, we ask them to keep faces covered as much as possible, but it’s OK to pull the mask down to breathe during physically demanding activities, then replace it as soon as they can. (This is in line with guidelines from the city and the state.)

Will there be full-contact soccer at camp?
Camp activities are designed to very much limit contact, but occasional contact is possible. Numerous no-contact activities are planned.

Is camp open to everyone?
Yes, girls and boys ages 2007 – 2012 (coed groups).

How much does camp cost?
Half-Day Afternoon camps are $200 for five days and $160 for four days.

Can I sign up for individual days?
With the four day option, you can pick which day you’re not attending. 

Do you offer sibling and/or multi-week discounts?
Yes, both! 10% off a second child or second week, 15% off a third registration.

Can I drop off early or pick-up late?
You can drop off as early as 11.45am and not before. You must pick up at 3.15pm – there is no late pick-up option.

How are kids organized – can my child be with her/his friend?
Groups are organized primarily by age and ability. If your child and her/his friend are the same age, it’s likely that they’ll be in the same group.

What is your refund policy?
We do not offer refunds on camps unless the camp is canceled by health authority edict. If this happens pro-rated refunds will be given, less a 3.5% credit card processing fee.
