    For the Overnight Camps, what if my camper doesn't want to stay in the dorm?

    New in 2016 - We are no longer offering a 'Commuter' camp option for the overnight camps.  All campers will be required to stay in the dorm.  If you feel your camper is not ready to stay overnight in the dorm, then waiting until next year is the best option.

    Do you offer Scholarships to attend camp

    Due to NCAA Compliance rules, University camps are not allowed to provide financial assistance for camp attendance.  Campers are allowed to get some outside scholarships to attend camp.

    When is the balance due for camp?

    The balance is due TWO weeks prior to camp. If you have set-up an automatic payment, the credit/ debit card you have on file will be charged 2 weeks prior to the start of camp.  If you don't have payment information set-up in your account, you will need to login and make your final payment 2 weeks prior to camp.

    Campers who haven't paid in full by the 2-week deadline will be assessed a $50 late fee and may be dropped from the camp session.

    Which session is best suited for my particular camper's needs?

    All of our sessions are Elite and Equal, which means we place the same high standards into each session, and try to make it easy for families to find the best session(s) to meet their family’s summer schedule.  And, because our camps are big, yet still maintaining an incredible 7:1 player to coach ration, we can group players based on their age, friends, and abilities.  Thus providing a great soccer experience for everyone!

    I have siblings of the same gender attending camp. Can they room together?

    Great Question!  We will room siblings of the same gender together.  However, please keep in mind that this will mean one or both of them will not be in the same dorm suite (or possibly near) other members of their camp team.  We group the players assigned to a camp team close together in the dorm. 

    We have found that campers have an enhanced experience when they room with other campers their same age and on the same camp team.

    How many campers can room together in the Callaway House?

    The Callaway House is a suite style dorm.  Each suite has living room area and kitchenette (with Full-Sized Refrigerator and microwave).  The bedrooms and bathrooms branch off from these areas in each Suite.

    There are many different configurations of suites in the Callaway House.

    4 Bedroom (with 2 beds per room)/ 2 Bathroom Suite: 8 total campers

    4 Bedroom (with rooms with 1 and 2 beds)/ 2 bath Suite: 6 Total Campers

    2 Bedroom (with 2 beds per room)/ 1 Bathroom Suite: 4 total campers

    2 Bedroom (with 2 bunk beds per room)/ 1 Bathroom Suite: 4 total campers

     

    We spend a great deal of time making sure that we are able to get friends together in the same dorm suite for camp.

    Which session is the best camp for the skill level of my child?

    We run each of the overnight sessions exactly alike. And, because we have such a large number of campers (yet keep a great camper to staff ratio), we can seperate groups by age and ability (especially after the coaches have had a chance to get an ititial evaluation of the campers in action). Likewise, even though we have girls and boys in the same session of camp, the groups are separated and trained separately by gender.

    What is the Camper to Staff Ratio at the Texas A&M Soccer Camp?

    It's the best in the nation - 7:1. And, the coaches are outstanding! Coach G and a group of top college, Professional, club, and High School coaches from across Texas, the USA, and abroad. Current College and Professional Players assist the head coaches, demonstrate all of the exercises, and help the campers in the dorm and to/from the field.

    How can I insure that my child will get the roommate he/she desires?

    We know how important getting the right roommate is for the camp experience.  To insure that campers get to room with specific roommates, each camper should indicate their roommate preference during registration.   For teams or large groups, please send an email to soccercamp@athletics.tamu.edu with a list of everyone that would like to be together.

    What is Callaway House ( the private dorm the campers and staff live in) Like?

    It's Awesome! There is a swimming pool, mini theater, game room, and cafeteria within the Callaway House.  The soccer fields are right across the street, so there is no need for bussing campers around town (like many other camps across America). This is plainly not the kind of dorm that Mom or Dad stayed in while they were in college!

     

    It is a suite style dorm.  Each suite has a living area (with couches), a kitchen area (witha  full size refrigerator and microwave), and then bedrooms and bathroom(s) that connect to these common areas.  The suites have 2 or 4 bedrooms and each bedroom has 1 or 2 beds.

    What airlines fly to College Station and can my child be picked up at the airport?

    American flies in and out of College Station via DFW or United in and out of Houston's Bush Intercontinental Airport. If you will provide us with your child's flight schedule, we will pick him/her up at the airport on the first day of camp and shuttle him/her back to the College Station airport following the last training session on the last day of camp.
