Important Information for Coaches
Coaches who bring teams of 8 players or more can apply to work the camp, if they wish to, and their teams will stay together for the games. These arrangements must be made in advance and are subject to University approval. Contact Coach Horn at the phone number or email address indicated above for further information.

Cancellation Policy
Refunds, minus a $25 administrative fee, will be made for cancellations received in writing by June 13. A 50% refund of the camp fee will be made for cancellations received from June 14 through June 27. We cannot issue refunds to campers who cancel after that date because we must hire staff, purchase materials, arrange for meals and reserve housing and athletic facilities long before the camp actually begins. We base all of these arrangements on the number of campers expected and cannot make changes after these commitments have been made.
