Yes. Each camper needs to bring their own twin sheets, blanket (or sleeping bag), pillow and towels.

How many players to a room?

There will be 2 players in each room; a few rooms have 3 per room. Roommates can be requested anytime before July 15th. Please make the request during registration.

Does my child need to bring extra money?

We recommend that each player bring some spending money. Especially at night campers like to order pizza. We will provide the service of a "camp bank account" so that campers do not lose their money. If there is a balance at the end of camp you can claim it at the camp store before departure. We will have some snacks, drinks & Nike apparel or merchandise at a camp store, too.

Room and Board?

All players and coaching staff are housed in non-air conditioned dormitories on the St. Mark's Campus. Bring a fan with you. Meals are prepared in the St. Mark's dining hall; any allergies or special diets must be indicated on the medical form sent out by the camp director before camp.

Equipment?

Campers should have a soccer ball, shinguards, proper footwear (we will have use of both turf and natural grass fields)

Medical Staff?

A certified athletic trainer will be on duty at the site throughout the duration of the camp and UMass Memorial Marlboro Hospital is minutes away. All medical concerns must be made available to medical staff prior to the start of camp.
