IS THERE A REGISTRATION DEADLINE?

Although there is not a registration deadline, we encourage everyone to register as early as possible. Several of our camps sold out in 2017. Enrollment is limited and available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

HOUSING/ROOM ASSIGNMENTS

Resident Campers for all overnight camps will stay in Abbottsford Hall, located near the Al McGuire Center. The address is 722 N 13th St, Milwaukee, WI 53233

All rooms in Abbottsford can hold up to 3 residents. Linens will be provided for all resident campers which will include: sheets, a pillow/pillowcase, bath towel, soap and a cup. Each floor utilized with have counselors monitoring the campers. Abbottsford is not air-conditioned; overnight campers may bring fans if they choose. There are no refrigerators provided in the dorm rooms.
Roommate requests must be made at the time of registration. You and your roommate must request each other appropriately on our online registration form to ensure correct rooming assignments. We will do our very best to accommodate all requests made. Those who did not request a roommate could be placed in a room with two campers who are requested roommates.

DINING

Campus Dining Services will be utilized to serve many of the meals for our summer camp. If you prefer to bring your own food, please feel free to do so. Please ensure that it is labeled properly and placed in one of the camp coolers during camp so it stays fresh prior to the meal.

DIETARY NEEDS/ALLERGY RESTRICTIONS

Should your camper have any dietary needs or allergy restrictions that need to be brought to our attention, let us know in advance on the online registration form. The form has fields for the type of allergy and the procedure our camp staff should follow in case a reaction occurs at camp. We also ask that those campers and their families visit with our camp medical training staff at their check-in table so that they can discuss, in detail, the condition and any concerns. If the camper has an EpiPen for emergency use, we ask that you bring one for us to have at the Al McGuire Center, and we also ask that the camper bring along a sling backpack clearly labeled with their name so they can carry the EpiPen with them as they go from place to place on campus. The cafeteria staff is very educated about food allergies and makes it their priority to not use peanut oil when cooking, or any peanuts, etc. Please feel free to communicate with us in anyway to create a safe environment.

WILL THERE BE MEDICAL STAFF AT CAMP?

Our experienced, certified trainers will be present at all times to ensure your child has a safe and enjoyable time at camp. If your child has any medical conditions, limitations, allergies, etc. please let our staff know. We ask that you inform our training staff about any medications your child may need to take, as they will be responsible for all medications during camp. On the first day of registration at each camp, you will have a chance to meet the training staff, introduce your camper, and give them all necessary equipment and/or instructions. If you have any questions ahead of time, please feel free to reach out to us at Alexa.Rand@marquette.edu

SUPERVISION AND CONDUCT

Campers will be supervised at all times to ensure a secure environment and are not permitted to leave their housing location or campus area unsupervised or without permission from the camp director. Although we do not anticipate this to happen, any misconduct by a camper is grounds for immediate dismissal from camp without a refund.

PARKING

All camp parents can park for free at our Wells Street Visitor Parking Structure (1240 W. Wells St) when dropping off and picking up their campers each day. This structure is conveniently located steps away from The Al McGuire Center. When you arrive at the Wells entrance, please let the attendant know you are dropping off or picking up your child for volleyball camp. On the first day of camp, we highly recommend parking and walking your camper into the Al McGuire Center (770 N 12th St). Following day 1 drop off, feel free to pick/drop off your camper right in front of the Al McGuire Center. Please visit Marquette Parking Services for maps and additional information.
Individuals who are parking overnight will need to pay to park overnight. The rates can be found on the Marquette Parking Services website above. When arriving at the parking structure on day 1, please notify the attendant that you will be parking overnight and upon payment they will provide you with the appropriate information to put on your dashboard for the duration of camp.
 

WHAT ITEMS SHOULD MY CHILD BRING TO CAMP?

Campers should wear athletic gear (shorts/spandex, t-shirt, gym shoes, socks, kneepads) every day. Camp T-shirts will be given out on the first day of camp. In an effort to be environment friendly, we ask that your child bring a water bottle to camp. Water and Gatorade will be provided. There will also be Gatorade for sale in the Camp Store. Campers are encouraged to bring any snacks they may need during camp or in between camp sessions. There may be days when we go outside for volleyball or other camp related activities, so you may want to bring sunscreen.
Overnight campers should bring blankets/sleeping bag, alarm clock, fan (optional) and toiletries in addition to their volleyball gear.
