CAMP FAQ

What does a typical camp day look like?
See schedule below

Is camp open to everyone?
Yes, kids ages 6 – 13.

Do you have gender-exclusive camps?
All camps are mixed gender, except those marked “Girls-only” or “Boys-only” in the schedule.

Can I sign up for individual days?
There are many single-day School’s-Out Camps, but weeklong School’s-Out and Summer Camps offer four and five-day options, and half or full days, but no single days – there’s a 4-day minimum on multi-day camps.

Do you offer sibling and/or multi-week discounts?
There is a 10% sibling discount and a 10% multi-week discount on 3 or more weeks of Summer Camp. Discounts are given as refunds after the registration is complete and only on request to register@gjoa.org.

Are there early-bird discounts or late fees?
There is a small late fee when registering after 4pm the day before the camp. Early bird discounts are generally available for summer camps up to about a month prior to the start of the summer camp season.

Do you offer financial aid for camps?
We offer a limited number of partial scholarships. Write to john@gjoa.org for more information.

What does my child bring to camp?
*Mask – required, but only if gathering in close contact
*Sunblock – apply in the morning and send extra for reapplication
*Pumped age-appropriate ball
*Sports clothing: tee-shirt, shorts, long socks to cover shin guards (INDOOR full-day campers should bring a small towel and change of clothes for wet activities on the roof deck)
*Shin Guards
*Turf Shoes or soccer cleats (sneakers are acceptable, but not ideal)
*Raingear
*GK Gloves (Goalkeepers only)
*Full large water bottle, clearly labeled with the player’s name
*Light Snacks (avoid nuts)
*Lunch (full day only – avoid nuts)
*Wipes and/or hand sanitizer for cleaning hands
Equipment note: there are still a few places around BK that sell soccer balls, socks, and shin guards, such as Soccer Post on Atlantic Ave and Leonardo’s on Fifth Ave in Sunset Park.

What is the bad weather policy?
For outdoor camps, we play in the rain, but the presence of nearby lightning requires that camp is canceled for the day and families must immediately pick up their child. Families MUST have a contingency plan for picking up in a timely way if camp is canceled.

If the weather looks severe and/or a storm is expected, we may cancel in the morning via email before 8am. In the event that we lose a full day of camp, a make-up day can be scheduled in future.

What is the earliest time that I can drop off my child?
8.45am is the earliest time that kids can be dropped off

Can I drop off earlier, or pick-up late?
We do not have early drop-off or late pick-up options – campers MUST be picked up on time

How are campers 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. If you miss a day due to illness you can make it up in the future.

OK, got it, how do I register?
