Duke Lacrosse Camp FAQ

How do I know if my camper has been accepted into Duke Lacrosse Camp?

When you have successfully completed the online application and your credit card payment has been accepted, you will receive a confirmation email to the address you associate with your online account. This email confirms your camper's admittance into camp. There is nothing sent by standard mail. If you believe that your registration went through successfully but you have not received your confirmation email, please check your junk email folder. If you still cannot find your confirmation, please email us at dukelacrossecamp@gmail.com

Does Duke Lacrosse Camp provide scholarships or financial assistance?

Unfortunately, we are limited by NCAA regulations and are unable to provide financial assistance to our camp.

Do I need to bring a health form with me?

No, all required medical information is submitted during online registration. No other forms are needed at check-in.

What do I do if my child has an allergy, medication to take, or other medical condition that I would like to discuss with your camp's medical personnel?

Camp administrator Tricia Danowski will be available at check-in to discuss medical needs and collect any medications such as epi-pens and refrigerated prescriptions. It is at the parent discretion whether the trainer administers medication or it is the camper’s responsibility.

What happens if my child gets injured?

A certified athletic trainer will be on site at all playing fields as well as overnight in the dormitories. Water and Gatorade will be provided at each field.

How does supervision work in the dormitories?

There is at least one camp coach staying on each floor of the camp dormitories. The coaches will be staying in a room on the hall overnight. Each room may be locked from the inside and only the campers have keys to their room (we have access to spare and master keys in case of emergency or lost keys but our coaching staff does not). The campers lock their rooms at night. The exterior doors of the dormitories are also locked with key-card access. Our coaches and staff are the only ones with key cards to the dorms. Our campus is also always monitored by campus police just as it is for our students during the school year, as well as private Duke Lacrosse Camp security monitoring dorms between 11pm and 3am.

What meals will my camper get on campus?

The first meal served for our camp is dinner. The last is breakfast. Campers are served breakfast, lunch and dinner each day in Duke Campus dining hall. Gluten-free and allergy sensitive meal arrangements can be made ahead of time only. Please contact Duke Lacrosse Camp Office at dukelacrossecamp@gmail.com for these accommodations. All dining hall menus are clearly marked with ingredients.

Will my child have an air-conditioned room?

Air conditioned rooms will be limited due to summer construction. Fans will be provided in every room that does not have an A/C unit.

Did you know that your summer day care expenses may qualify for an income tax credit?

Many parents who work or are looking for work must arrange for care of their children under 13 years of age during the school vacation. Those expenses may help you get a credit on next year's tax return.
