What to Wear to Camp
The statement below is a suggestion from NCA:
1st Day: Half day PM - Camp clothes - shorts and t-shirts/tank tops.
2nd Day: Full day - Camp clothes - shorts and t-shirts/tank tops.
3rd Day: Full day - Camp clothes - shorts and t-shirts/tank tops. This is also known as FUN DAY. You can dress to match the THEME but of course, they don't have to (just a suggestion!) This is also the day that participants try out for All American. Many kids choose to wear their uniforms for that.
4th Day: Half day AM - Most teams like to wear their uniforms on the final day but again, it is not required.
If you have any questions concerning registration, payment and dorms, please feel free to contact us.
Individuals attending camp - If the participant is under the age of 18, he/she must bring a sponsor to camp to be with you at all times. The sponsor will need to attend the coaches/directors meeting each day too so that they will know what the participant will need to do for the day.
