The No. 1 Soccer Camps will send you a detailed informational email prior to your camp with important details regarding check-in location and other relevant instructions to ensure that check-in and your move into the dorm goes as smoothly as possible. Registration is generally between 12:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. at each campsite and usually takes place in front of or inside the resident dormitory. When you arrive on campus you will see signs directing you to registration.
Most facilities require a deposit to cover the replacement of a lost room key/card or dining card. If lost, these keys or cards will be replaced during the week of camp. If the key/card is lost or is not returned at the end of camp, the deposit will be used to offset the cost of replacement charged to us by the host institution.
The schedule for the week will be provided to you and your camper at registration.
Each of our five distinct programs have schedules that are appropriate for the age and structure of that camp.

First aid care at camp is provided by a certified athletic trainer specifically hired for that purpose. In case of an emergency, campers will be brought to a local hospital or heath care facility to which campers will be transported by ambulance if necessary. Parents will be immediately contacted. Parents will also be notified if an injury or illness necessitates a camper missing more than one field session.
Most No.1 camp locations provide a snack bar with various snacks, drinks and the ability to purchase pizza in the evening. If there is a No.1 Camp Store on location, it would only be available on opening or closing day. Therefore it is not necessary for campers to bring more than $30 to camp. Please supply your camper with dollars bills – singles, fives or tens.
Where a swimming pool is available, campers are encouraged to swim at the designated No. 1 swim period. Lifeguards and adult supervision is provided. These swim sessions are designed as a regeneration session. We do not make swimming mandatory at any site. Campers choosing not to enter the pool are supervised by No. 1 Staff until the end of swim period.
Parents are encouraged to visit their child during any on-field camp session. Parents or guests are not permitted unsupervised visitation in the dormitory. Parents and guardians are not permitted to remove the camper from camp without prior communication with the No. 1 Camp Director.
The typical No.1 Soccer Camp has an approximate staff/camper ratio of 1:8. All staff members reside in the dormitory and accompany campers from the dorm to the fields, pool, cafeteria, meeting rooms etc. Camp is organized into small groups and attendance in each group is taken prior to each session. Male and female campers and staff are separated either by floors or in separate housing units.
