We follow all guidelines regulated by the Department of Health and in many cases have better ratios.  6:1, 8:1, 10:1, 12:1 depending on ages.  

Each player should bring the following to camp each day with everything labeled:

  • Mask

  • Backpack

  • Water bottle(s) — there are coolers and water fountains to refill.

  • Sunscreen

  • Sneakers (can bring cleats as well, but must bring sneaker just in case we go to indoor field)

  • Snack

  • Extra change of clothes

  • Don’t bring a soccer ball (Staff will provide them)

  • Lunch*

  • Optional: Hand Sanitizer

*Full day campers only

Camp is always on as scheduled. We have an overhang shelter from the rain conditions when it is raining heavy. If there is thunder and lightning, we follow guidelines provided by the Department of Health.   

We take camper health and safety extremely seriously.  In the case of extreme summer heat we take caution with the following:  

  • regular water breaks

  • shorter period of activity broken up by time in the shade

  • ensure campers are wearing sunscreen and a hat (if desired). 

  • giving campers an option to sit out activities and sessions 

  • option of indoor field for younger campers

  • keeping a close watch on campers with medical conditions that can be aggravated in extreme heat, e.g. asthma.

Drop off time for campers is between 8:45–9:00am

Regular pickup is from 4:30–5:00pm. Yes, we have a late policy: for every 15 minutes you are late to pick up your child we will add a balance of $15 dollars to your account. After a long day outside in the heat, it’s important to pick up your child on time.  

We do offer an option to pick up between 5:00–6:00 pm for an additional cost of $100 per week. This must be selected at registration. Late pick up is available for both camp options.

No, please bring your lunch, snacks and drinks everyday to camp.

 
 

No, we are not. If a child has an allergy, please let us know so we may be able to avoid any contact with others who have nuts during lunch and snack.  

No, we only offer full week options Monday - Friday.  

We only have a half day/full week option for 3, 4, 5, and 6 year olds.

Unfortunately we do not offer a sibling discount or multi-week discount.

Yes. Please contact scholarships@dusc.net if you are interested in applying for a scholarship.

Players are divided based on their age and skill level. We strive to create the best environment for each player. If your child and his/her friend are in the same age they will most likely be in the same group.

You can find the medical here.

Enthusiasm is everything. It must be taut and vibrating like a guitar string.
