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.
