Check in and Orientation

Parents/guardians are invited to the residence halls to visit with staff members and ask any last-minute questions. Please note that there are no structured activities during the check-in period, but residential staff will be in the residence hall to help campers get settled in their rooms and encourage campers to begin getting to know one another in an informal setting. Commuter campers can socialize at the dorms and go with the group to first session.

Alternative Airport Pickup (at an additional cost of $400): Alternative pickup arrangements should be noted at the time of registration. For individuals requesting airport pickup, airfare should not be purchased until confirmation is received from the camp staff. Three youth participants must utilize the arrangement to ensure youth protection standards are met.

This service will incur an additional fee, including: residence halls, transportation, meals, insurance and staff time. Three individuals must take advantage of this option for the camp to provide transportation.

The additional fee will be added to your account and must be paid in full by all three individuals, to guarantee this service.
Please label all of your wheels, chairs, bags, etc. very distinctly. We will be taking all the chairs apart. If you do not label them properly, it will be difficult putting them back together when we get to Whitewater from the airport. Please label everything clearly! Perhaps with some sort of color code or fun markings that make your belongings stick out.
Check-in and out times, along with locations and a confirmed daily schedule, will be available in the camp information packet approximately 3 weeks prior to the start of camp. Contact Continuing Education Services at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
The 50,000 square foot space is an all-purpose facility that performs numerous functions for members of the campus and community.
Converse Track is a 200 meter Beynon BSS 1000 synthetic surface (Hobart encapsulated), eight lanes in the straightaways and six in the turns, where ¼ inch pyramid spikes are used. There is a 130 foot long jump runway, with the pit ten feet from the board, and an unlimited triple jump runway with boards at 28, 32, 36, and 40 feet, and wood boards at 28 and 36 feet. The pole vault has a 120 foot runway, and there are two rings for throwing events, both with laser measuring.
The fieldhouse also houses four multi-purpose courts for indoor tennis. That facility was redone in 2012 with a tennis friendly surface to slow the bounce down to a more true tennis bounce. Baseball and softball do some of their off-season work in the fieldhouse and indoor batting cages and mounds help out when inclement spring weather occurs. The Warhawk volleyball team also uses the fieldhouse, with tournaments occupying several courts in addition to Russell Arena. The fieldhouse can also set up four basketball courts for general recreation or intramurals.
