Financial Aid: Sorry, there are no scholarships or other forms of financial aid available for campers in any of our summer programs.

Students will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis so it's a good idea to enroll as early as possible. Once accepted, campers will receive, along with their acceptance letter, instructions on where to find and download all required materials including medical, emergency contact and parental permission forms. Updated immunization information (including dates) is also required prior to the start of camp. Included with this letter will be information on what to bring with you along with the day's schedule.

Camp Director:
This camp will be run by AU Women's Volleyball Head Coach, Dakota Pruiss. Dakota was appointed head women's volleyball coach in February 2017. She comes to AU from SUNY New Paltz where she served as an assistant coach for three seasons (2014-2016). While coaching the defense at New Paltz, she helped guide 11 New Paltz players to all-conference honors, including two league Players of the Year, a Co-Player of the Year, a Rookie of the Year and a Defensive Player of the Year. Two of the squads Pruiss helped coach - the 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 teams earned American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) Team Academic Awards. In addition to coaching at the collegiate level, Pruiss has also been active as a coach with Iroquois-Empire Volleyball Association (IREVA) High Performance, a regional volleyball program run through USA Volleyball which covers Eastern NY. Since 2014 she has served as assistant coach for IREVA High Performance, mentoring some of the top high school players in the state and since January 2016 has been the organization's assistant director. In the summer of 2015 she was head coach of IREVA's women's professional team which competed in the Premier Volleyball League. Since 2011 she has served as head coach of the Hudson Valley Alliance (HVA) Club youth team and since 2015 has served HVA as assistant club director.
