CAMP FAQ

Summer Soccer Camps

Do campers have to follow special pandemic rules?

Yes, but pandemic rules are changing rapidly. Outdoors, campers are encouraged to wear masks whenever they are comfortable wearing them, but they are not required to wear them. Coaches are also not required to wear them outdoors.

Indoors, we ask players and coaches to wear them in confined public spaces, but they may be removed on the outdoor deck and on the field when playing. Both Coaches and Campers who have symptoms (fever, runny nose, coughing, sneezing, etc) are asked to stay home.

Is camp open to everyone?

Yes, girls and boys ages 2007 – 2015. All groups are coed.

Where is Camp located?

Outdoor camps are held at the Parade Ground. The exact field number is emailed a couple of days before the camp starts. Indoor camps are Socceroof, located at 14b 53rd St 3rd floor, Brooklyn, NY 11232 (g-map)

Can I sign up for individual days?

Some School’s-Out Camps are single days. Summer Camps offer four and five-day options, and half or full days, but there are no single-day options.

Do you offer sibling and/or multi-week discounts?

Discounts vary by camp and are detailed at the beginning of each registration.

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 (GK’s only)
*Full large water bottle, clearly labeled with the player’s name
*Light Snack
*Lunch (full day only)

There are still a few stores around BK that sell balls and shin guards, such as Upper 90 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, the time may be added onto the remaining days of the week, or we will allow a make-up day, tbd.

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 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 there’s a cancellation by health authority edict. If this happens pro-rated refunds will be given, less a 3.5% credit card processing fee. If you miss a day due to illness you can make it up in future.
