KEY DEPOSIT

For overnight campers, there is a $125.00 key deposit due at check-in. This is to cover the cost of a replacement key should a camper lose theirs during camp. The deposit check will be returned to you in exchange for your camper’s key at check-out. Please make the check payable to Duke Soccer School for Girls and write your camper’s name on the memo line.

 

BALANCE

If you have a remaining balance, please log in to your account prior to check-in to pay the remainder. You can access your account via the Log In button in the top right corner on www.DukeSoccerSchool.com. If you have trouble paying the remainder, please email us at dukesoccerschool@gmail.com.

 

MEDICAL FORM

All campers must have a completed medical form on file prior to the beginning of camp. If you have not already submitted your form, please email a completed copy to dukesoccerschool@gmail.com. The medical form can be found here. School physicals within the past year may be substituted for the physician’s signature.

 

SAFETY INFO

We will provide water and Gatorade at the fields. Ice is also available at the fields, but make sure your camper picks up ice before returning to the dorm at night if they need it (we do not have ice in the dorms). An athletic trainer will be on hand at all times and staying in the dorms overnight. We will have adult camp counselors staying in the dorms as well.

 

ACCOMMODATIONS

We are staying in Edens Dorm on Duke’s West Campus. All rooms are air-conditioned. Overnight campers and commuters will all have access to the common room during breaks. The rooms do not have refrigerators or microwaves, but campers will have access to both in the common room.

 

DINING INFORMATION

As part of camp, we will provide six meals at the Broadhead Center on campus. Please note that our first camp meal is dinner Friday, July 26. Campers should plan to have lunch with their parents on Friday. Our last camp meal is lunch on Sunday, June 28.

At check-in, each camper will be issued a card that not only provides access to the dorm but also serves as a meal swipe. Each card is credited with one swipe per meal period that works on the purchase of an Athletic Summer Meal deal at Brodhead Center venues except Au Bon Pain.

Duke Dining identifies foods containing the eight major food allergens (wheat, dairy, eggs, fish, shellfish, nuts, peanuts, and soy, plus sesame) as well as gluten-containing foods in all of our dining locations. Campers with food allergies, intolerances, and special dietary needs should not hesitate to ask the Duke Dining service providers if they have any questions or are unclear on any food’s ingredients. If you have further dietary needs, please communicate with us prior to the start of camp.

Snacks are available during break times at the Camp Store. It is not necessary to pack extra snacks unless desired. We will also order pizza available after the evening training sessions on Friday, July 26 and Sunday, July 28.

 

CAMP STORE

We will have a Camp Store open on the first floor. Campers may purchase snacks, Gatorade, water, and Duke Soccer apparel at the store. Campers who wish to order pizza for after the final session each day may do so in the camp store as well.
