what forms are required in order to register?
We require all athletes to carry a USA Diving membership that can be purchased at www.USADiving.org. We also require additional forms for media release and medical consent that can completed online during registration or prior to arriving at camp.
How are campers supervised during their stay?
We have brought together the finest coaches and counselors to assist with ensuring all campers can enjoy their training and stay under the safest environment possible. All coaches and many of our counselors are First Aid, CPR, and AED certified and ALL coaches, counselors, and athletes over the age of 18 undergo an extensive interview and background screening process.
Can my child room with their teammate and/or friend?
We have separate rooms and wings for male and female athletes as well as coaching staff. We have several different size bedrooms to accommodate our athletes. Athletes are housed together by gender and age. In the event a roommate request is completed during the registration process, we will do our best to accommodate the request.
ARE PARENTS ALLOWED TO STAY IN THE CAMP HOUSE?
Unfortunately, parents are not allowed to stay in the camp house. For those campers who wish to be overnight campers we want them to have a full camp experience. We also want to make sure that we leave as much space as possible for our coaches and athletes so they can enjoy their experience as much as possible. For those parents who want to stay close by we encourage you to check out one of the Marriotts in Noblesville.
What do weekend campers do and how are they supervised?
Over the weekend campers will be supervised by our counseling staff 24/7. We do not supply food after breakfast on Friday to dinner on Sunday. Our counselors will take the athletes to do activities such as bowling, movies, shopping, mini golf or whatever else they would like to do as long as it follows our rules. We do not pay for any extra activities. Our counselors will also take them to get food and go to the store. The athletes will have access to our kitchen to cook whatever food they would like.
What is the refund policy?
We will do our best to work with athletes in the event of a refund request through many options:
If an athlete notifies us earlier than 14 days prior that they are not able to attend the week they registered for, we can switch weeks at no cost, offer a credit for the amount paid, or offer you a full refund, less the service charges per session of camp ($35).
If an athlete requests a refund later than the 14 days prior, there is a $300.00 processing fee per session. Please note if your athlete checks in late or departs early for any reason, there is no refund. We also do not prorate for coming in late or leaving early for camp.
