Meals

RESIDENTIAL CAMPS: Meals for overnight campers are provided through Dartmouth College Dining Services. Any camper with special dietary needs should email those details to connect@uscdcamps.com.

WATER: USCD sports medicine staff provide an ample supply of water at all USCD sessions. However, we strongly encourage all campers to bring a water bottle or thermos (with their name on it) to camp that can be filled and carried out to the fields.

Lodging

Residential campers are housed in Dartmouth College dormitories. The residence halls are staffed 24 hours a day by a full-time member of the US Collegiate Development staff. All dorms are single sex halls and members of the opposite sex are not permitted inside during the camp week.

Roommates

Resident campers can indicate one roommate preference on the registration form. Listing a roommate preference does not guarantee enrollment of the roommate in the camp. Some rooms are singles, many are doubles, and a few are suites. USCD will do our best to fulfill roommate requests; however, we cannot guarantee those requests. If no preference is indicated, a roommate will be assigned. Rooming assignments are finalized 30 days prior to the start of camp. Campers will not be able to make or change roommate requests within 30 days prior to the start of camp. Additionally, no changes will be made on the day of check-in. 

Supervision

Campers will be supervised by camp staff throughout their stay, including in the residence halls.  

For campers not enrolled in the top-up clinics, registration must be done during the regular registration period. There is no pre-arrival supervision available for campers not enrolled in the EXTRA NIGHT or TOP-UP CLINIC programs. 

Students will be responsible for their behavior and are committed to the mission of US Collegiate Development.  US Collegiate Development reserves the right to send any camper home without refund if found to be uncooperative or detrimental to the camp for any reason.
