    Where Will We Stay While On Campus?

    All campers will be housed in one of the UNC Dormitories (this is TBD for each camp). Directions and location of each camp check in will be provided on the indivdual camp page, as well as in Important Information email that is sent out the week of camp.

    For local hotel deals for parents, please see our link on the left hand menu - "Local Hotel Deals."


    Where will we eat on campus? What if my child needs gluten-free dining or has allergies?

    All campers will eat at Rams Head Dining Hall. If your child needs gluten-free or any other special dining (including allergies), please email us at least 14 days prior to camp so we can make the necessary arrangements with the dining hall to accommodate your son.


    Where can we park on campus?

    During check in and check out, Public Safety requests that you park while unloading in the Ram's Head Parking Deck off of Ridge Road. There is a small fee to park in Rams Head Deck.

    **Parking is free on campus on weekends and anytime after 5 pm. Any other time you must park in a deck to avoid being ticketed.**


    Can a camper drive himself to camp?

    We highly discourage campers to drive himself to camp. Any camper driving to camp themselves will be required to pay for parking while on campus ($14/day) in Highway 54 lot (about a mile and a half walk from the dorms). No parking passes will be given to campers. Campers must also turn their keys in to Coach Joe Martin at check in to ensure their safety.


    Where are camp sessions held?

    Camp sessions are held on a variety of fields on campus. Each camp will have designated fields, please check with the individual camp page for the schedule where this information will be posted. There will also be an Important Information email sent out the week of camp outlining this information.

    Finley Fields (grass fields), Ehringhaus (field turf), Navy (field turf), Henry Field (astro turf), and Hooker Fields (field turf). It is the camper’s responsibility to have all the necessary shoes to play on these field types.


    Can parents observe sessions?

    If desired, parents are allowed to observe any session. We ask that they observe from a safe distance, as Tar Heel Lacrosse Camps is not responsible for spectator injury. We also ask that you do not COACH your son and do not HECKLE the refs.


    What Are the Rooming Arrangements Like At Camp?

    All rooms are double occupancy (meaning two people per room). Each room is a part of a six or eight person suite that shares a bathroom. Please note: No switching or re-assignments will be permitted during check in.


    Can my camper request a camp team?

    No – we have hundreds of campers attending camps and they all expect an amazing, equal opportunity to learn and play lacrosse at the highest level. We do not take camp team requests for friends or groups.


    What will campers do in their free time?

    Tar Heel Lacrosse Camps runs on a three-session schedule. Between sessions, campers will eat in the nearby dining hall (Rams Head Dining Hall) and catch some cool air in the dorms.


    What happens if my child gets sick, injured, homesick, etc?

    We have certified athletic trainers at all camp sessions and staffing the dorms 24 hours a day. Ms. Nina Walker, certified athletic trainer for the UNC Men's Lacrosse team, heads up her camp staff. There is an athletic training room designated at camp. Campers will talk with the athletic trainers initially during check in, and may show up at the dorm room for any other issues up until 11 pm. One athletic trainer is ON CALL nightly (after 11 pm). The athletic training suite will be listed on the camper’s registration packet at check in. If need be, our athletic trainers work with UNC Hospital for any issues that do arise.

    While we haven't had many incidents of a camper being homesick, we highly ask parents to consider if their child is ready to be away for camp. We have noticed homesick feelings usually occur with our younger residential campers (6th or 7th) graders. If needed, we do offer the "commuter" option for campers that aren't ready to stay in the dorm, but still allows them to participate in all camp session. Changes in resident/commuter status will not be accepted after the 2 week prior deadline.
