1. How do I register? Summer camp registration starts on February 1. There are three ways to register:

    1. Online - click the "Register Online" link on any of our camp webpages. You will be asked to pay by credit card. We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover.
    2. By fax - please print the hard copy of the Registration Form, posted on each individual camp page. Fill out the form completely, including your credit card information at the bottom, and fax to our office at (310) 206-7527. Registration will not be accepted without payment.
    3. By mail - please print the hard copy of the Registration Form, posted on each individual camp page. Fill out the form completely and mail to our office:
      UCLA Sports Camps
      P.O. Box 24044
      Los Angeles, CA 90024-0044
    You must include credit card information or payment by check. Registration will not be accepted without payment.

If paying by cash, please visit the Camp Office in person. We can be reached at the following times and locations:
Until June 18: J.D. Morgan Center, Room 234, Mon-Fri, 8am-5pm
After June 18: Dykstra Hall, 2nd Floor, 7 days, please call for hours

2. What are the age requirements?
They differ from camp to camp, and from sport to sport. Our youngest camps start at age 6, while our oldest go to age 18 (with the exception of any adult clinics offered, such as Volleyball.) Day camps are usually for younger campers, whereas overnight camps require a minimum age of 9 or older, depending on the camp. Please visit each camp's page for details. We strongly discourage campers from attending camps for which they do not meet the age minimum.

3. What is the refund policy?
There is a $75 per-session cancellation fee for ALL cancellations made at least two weeks prior to the first day of camp. If cancellation, for any reason including medical, is made within two weeks of the camp, there is a $150 cancellation fee. All cancellations must be submitted in writing (by fax or email) by 5pm on the day before the start of camp. No refunds will be issued for cancellation after this time. No refunds will be issued upon expulsion or voluntary withdrawal from camp. No credit for future camps will be issued. You will receive an emailed confirmation of your cancellation request once it has been received.

4. Do I have to pay in full at the time of registration?
For each of our summer camps, we do accept a $150 deposit to reserve your place in the camp. (Part of this may be refunded, depending on the time of cancellation - please see Refund Policy above.) The remaining balance is due on June 2. If you paid by credit card, the remaining amount will be charged to the same card (unless you contact us with alternate payment information.) If you are paying by check, we must receive final payment by June 2. In May, you will be sent a reminder about the balance due. After June 2, full payment only will be accepted. If full payment is not received by June 2, your spot in the camp may be forfeited.

5. How early do the camps fill up?
It depends on the camp - and differs from year to year - but our camps are very popular and many of them do fill up several months in advance. We recommend registering as soon as you are sure of your summer schedule! All camps are on a first-come, first-served basis and do have limited capacity.

6. What's the difference between "resident" and "commuter"?
For most of our overnight camps, we offer two enrollment options: resident and commuter. The Resident fee includes room & board (overnight accommodations and all meals at camp.) The Commuter fee is for local campers who do not wish to spend the night at camp, and includes lunch and dinner (where applicable - see individual camp schedules) but not overnight accommodations.

7. Are there discounts for UCLA staff? Alumni? Groups? Siblings? Returning campers?
We offer a $25 discount per camper, per session, to the following groups:

  • UCLA Faculty & Staff
  • Current members of the UCLA Alumni Association
         For information on how to join the Alumni Association, please visit www.UCLAlumni.net or call the James West Alumni Center at (310) 825-2586.
To receive either of these discounts, you must mail or fax a copy of your UCLA ID or Alumni membership card to the Sports Camps office. A balance will remain on your account until this is received.

We do not offer discounts for groups, siblings or returning campers at this time.

8. What is the UCLA Sports Camps tax ID?
Our tax ID number is 95-6006143. Please call the UCLA Sports Camps office at (310) 206-3550 if you wish to have a separate account statement mailed or fax to you, which will include our tax ID as well as a summary of your camp registrations and payments.

9. Do you offer any scholarships or financial aid?
Unfortunately, no - we do have campers each year who are sponsored by outside groups, and we recommend contacting your local youth organizations and other groups that may be interested in sponsoring a camper. UCLA Sports Camps are part of the UCLA Athletic Department, and our ability to grant aid in any form is severely limited by NCAA recruiting bylaws.

10. What should my camper bring to the overnight camp?
Note: You will be emailed a complete packing list once your camp registration has been processed.

Overnight campers should bring toiletries, an alarm clock (or cell phone which functions as one), towels, and a little bit of spending money (for vending machines or the school store, if desired - all meals are included.) Campers may bring cell phones BUT are asked not to use them during the day. Campers do NOT need to bring pillows or linens, as these are provided in the dorms, but some campers do prefer to bring their own pillow or an extra blanket from home. Phones in the residence halls may receive incoming calls (you can make a note of your camper's phone number when you drop him/her off) but require a calling card to make outgoing calls, so you may wish to send your camper with either a pre-paid calling card or a cell phone.

11. Who supervises the campers at night?
Coaches and counselors from each of our camps serve not only as instructors during the day but also as residential counselors at night. Members of our camp staff, including an athletic trainer, stay in the dorms with the campers and supervise them closely. Campers are encouraged to visit a counselor's room at any time, should a question or problem arise. A room key is required to access the building, and visitors are required to sign in with security staff at the entrance to the building.

12. When and where do I drop off my camper?
This differs from camp to camp. Once your registration has been processed, you will receive a confirmation email with the details of when and where to drop-off and pick-up your camper. Please visit the individual camp's page, or contact the Sports Camps office at (310) 206-3550 for more information.

13. Do you provide transportation to and from the airport?
No, but we do recommend a service called Super Shuttle, with whom many of our past campers (and camp staff, as well) have had good experiences. Super Shuttle provides easy and relatively inexpensive transportation to and from LAX (the closest airport). To make a reservation, please call 1-800-BLUE-VAN or visit www.supershuttle.com.

14. Can you recommend a place for parents to stay?
There are many hotels on or near the UCLA Campus. A partial list is available here  - but please feel free to contact the Camp Office staff for their (unofficial) opinions and suggestions!

15. Do the UCLA coaches use their camps to recruit?
Our coaches' focus is on making each camper a better and more well-rounded athlete. Because UCLA attracts many of the finest young athletes in the world, the coaches often travel extensively to seek prospective recruits. While our programs do offer the chance for campers to get instruction from - and, of course, make an impression on - our coaching staff, we prefer to keep each camp's emphasis on instruction, not recruitment.

16. What is 'After Care'?
Most of our Day Camps run from 9am to 3pm. After-Care is an additional service for those parents who require a later pick-up time. Camp staff will supervise your child in the camp game room; activities include board games, arts & crafts, and watching movies. You may pick up your camper any time between 3:30 and 5:30pm. Separate instructions will be emailed to you, directing you to the pick-up location (in Dykstra Hall) as the campers will no longer be at the facility where you dropped them off. The cost is $100 for a four-day camp and cannot be pro-rated.

17. What is the 'waiver'?
The Waiver of Liability is a University document which the Sports Camps office must have on file for EVERY camper prior to the start of camp. The two-page waiver may be mailed or faxed with the initial registration, or it may be sent at a later date, as long as it is received by the start of camp. Please note: if you registered online, you were asked to agree to the terms of your online payment; this is not the same as the waiver required for each and every camper. The waiver may not be submitted online; we require the parent/guardian's actual signature on the document.

18. What if I don't have health insurance?
Although our coaches and athletic training staff make every effort to create a safe environment for our campers, we do insist on having health insurance information on file for every camper in the event of illness or injury. If you do not have health insurance, please contact the Sports Camps office at (310) 206-3550 regarding a separate document which must be signed in order to assume liability for any medical costs deemed necessary in the case of an emergency.

19. Do you have other camps besides sports?
No, but we recommend visiting the UCLA Recreation Department, which has their own wide-ranging summer camp program (including activities for both children and adults.) Their website is www.recreation.ucla.edu - or you may contact them at (310) 825-3701 or youthcamps@recreation.ucla.edu.

20. I just registered! Now what?!
First, we recommend adding camps@athletics.ucla.edu to your email contacts or address book, in order to make sure that you receive our confirmation email and any subsequent updates about the camp. You will receive a reminder the week before the camp, as well as a notice of any incomplete paperwork or missing payment at that time. Now, you'll just have to sit tight and wait for summer!!
