Group discounts are available for both our Senior and Junior High camps who register 10 or more campers. To qualify for the discount, all registrations must be submitted together at the same time. Online registrations and registrations sent separately will not qualify for the discounted rates. Group registrations do not guarantee that all campers will be placed in a room together or near each other. Tuition is refundable excluding $100.00 in the case of injury or illness. Written explanation from the camper’s doctor must be provided. Cancellation for any other reason or no show at day of camp check-in will result in no refund.

Housing and Meals for Overnight Campers:

Overnight campers are housed in air-conditioned dorms located on the campus of the University. If you do not name a roommate preference, we will assign one PRIOR to check-in. Roommates will be assigned by age, school or by request. Roommates will not be changed the day of registration. Campers are assigned two to a room. Accommodating roommates will be on a first come first serve basis. Meals are served at a cafeteria here on campus at the University of Arkansas. It is buffet style with a variety of choices to choose from.

In the interest of your child’s safety, please designate the person or persons you are giving permission to pick up your child. The designated guardian must sign- in with the day camper 20 minutes prior to each day’s first session. Guardian’s must also arrive 20 minutes prior to the end of the last session to sign out. Campers will not be released at the end of the day without the designated guardian. Campers are also responsible to check-out with their designated coach before departing.
