CAMPS

Gjøa Summer Soccer Camps

Sibling and Multi-week Discounts now in effect. See Q&A below!

In partnership with our friends at Socceroof, Brooklyn’s premier indoor soccer space!

Open to ALL girls & boys ages 2005-2011. Please read Q&A below before registering! (Socceroof has a camp program for 2012-2014 here.)

Socceroof, working with city and state agencies, has developed thorough safety protocols (including limiting fields to 8 players or less), and they’ve invested heavily in sanitizing and safety equipment, as well as sporting equipment specifically designed for six-feet-apart soccer. Our licensed and experienced coaches have planned a full week of fun!

What precautions and protocols are in place to maximize safety and minimize the risk of spreading infection?
Click here for details. (Note: the Disinfectant Tunnel will be installed in early July.)

Do campers have to follow special rules?
Yes, campers must abide by all camp and facility rules and safety protocols in order to better ensure the safety of campers, coaches, and facility staff. These rules include safe movement within the facility, bathroom protocols, distancing, hand sanitizing, face coverings, and much more.

Is camp open to everyone?
Yes, girls and boys ages 2005 – 2011.

How much does camp cost?
Because social distancing limits the number of campers in the facility, camps this summer are a little more expensive than usual – $500 for five days, 9am to 4pm.

Can I sign up for individual days and/or half days?
There is a four-day option available.

Do you offer sibling and/or multi-week discounts?
Yes, both! 15% off second child or second week, 20% off third child or week.

What does my child bring to camp?

Full water bottle, clearly labeled with the player’s name
Shin Guards
Turf Shoes
GK Gloves (GK’s only)

Lunch – see snack/lunch note below

Is there a camp giveaway?
Every camper has a choice between a Gjøa mask or a Gjøa t-shirt.

Will there be full-contact soccer at camp?
No, not yet, but there are many no-contact soccer activities planned, and many non-soccer and soccer-related activities such as soccer tennis, shooting games, soccer golf, PS4, ping pong, and much more.

What is the earliest time that I can drop off my child?
To maximize safety, drop-off/check-in will be staggered every few minutes between 8.45 and 9am. Please be prepared to wait with your child for a brief time so that small groups can enter safely.

Can I tour the facility?
Parents/guardians may tour the facility after camper check-in, at approximately 9.15am. Please wear face coverings and observe appropriate distancing.

What is the latest time I can pick up my child?
Campers must be picked up at 4pm. Campers will leave in staggered small groups, so please be prepared to wait for a short time. Pick-up is in front of the building.

Do we bring our own snacks/lunch, or can we buy it?
We do not provide lunch or snacks of any kind. Please bring snack/lunch, or your child can purchase snacks and pizza from Socceroof. Snacks are $2 and Table 87 personal pizza plus a drink is $12.

Where will campers eat lunch?
Groups will eat in three separate areas of the outdoor patio, practicing social distancing.

Is there ventilation at Socceroof?
The facility has 80 large windows, all of which will be open, and large fans will facilitate cross-ventilation.

Do you offer financial aid for camps?
At this time we do not offer financial aid for camps.

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.

OK, got it, how do I register?
