Housing

There will be two campers to a dorm room. Please list on the registration application campers who would like to room together. Please note that listing a roommate preference does not guarantee enrollment of the roommate in camp. We do our best to meet roommate requests but cannot guarantee you will room with the person you request. In the event that we are not able to accommodate your request, we will attempt to assign rooms so all campers are on the same floor and near each other. If no roommate preference is indicated, campers will be assigned a roommate. We cannot guarantee entire teams or campers from a single school will be housed on the same floor. Campers will be required to put down a $50 key deposit at check-in, deposits will be refunded at the conclusion of camp with the returned key. Campers are financially responsible for any damages they cause to their rooms or other university property.
