How do I register for a sports camp, enrichment camp, and/or credit course?

What is the deadline for registration?

If there is a cap on enrollment, then what should I do?

  • Some in-person credit courses may be capped due to space. In the event that enrollment is capped, please inquire about plans to offer an additional section of the camp/course or if your registration can be transferred to another camp/course option. If no other options are suitable, then please request that you be issued a refund.

If the camp/course I signed up for does not meet the enrollment minimum and is canceled, then what should I do?

  • In the event that the camp/course is canceled because it did not meet the enrollment minimum, please request that your registration be transferred to another camp/course option. If no other options are suitable, then please request that you be issued a refund.

My camper will not be able to attend the full week of camp, is that OK?

  • Yes, but please be aware that camp/course fees cannot be prorated, and please notify your specific camp/course director as well as the appropriate program administrator at the top of this page. *Also, be advised that in-person courses for academic credit will have a minimum attendance standard that must be met in order to receive credit.

What is your cancellation policy?

  • Up to the registration deadline for any camp/course, a full refund can be given for any cancellation. As there are no prorated refunds available, there are no refunds after the registration deadline has passed.

Can I transfer my registration to a different camp/course?

  • Yes, by request, you can have your registration fee applied to another camp/course option; however, please be aware that camp/course prices vary so there might be a balance or refund due once a transfer is initiated.

Camp/Course Details

What to bring?

  • All participants should bring water in a refillable water bottle. There will be locations and opportunities to refill bottles throughout the day. Those participating in an outdoor sports camp and/or enrichment course should also bring a hat and plenty of sunscreen. Participants staying for the entire day (that is, a morning AND afternoon camp/course) should also bring a lunch. Please label everything you bring with your name! Your camp/course director may have additional items needed for their specific activity, so be on the lookout for correspondence from your specific camp director as well.

What to wear?

  • For sports camps, in addition to the outdoor items mentioned directly above, appropriate athletic clothing and footwear is best (as well as some sport-specific footwear such as cleats, spikes, etc.). Active wear and athletic shoes will also work well for any outdoor enrichment camps. For indoor camps and/or credit courses, more specific information on the dress code will be provided by the academic and enrichment program administrator.

 

Is lunch provided?
  • No, lunch is not provided. Campers must pack and bring their own lunch. However, the drop-off/pick-up commons will be made available as the space where campers can sit and eat during the midday break (12:00pm-12:30pm).
What if my camper has medications to take?
  • Our licensed athletic training staff will be on hand throughout the summer to assist with injuries and/or other camper needs. Our ATs are available to assist with storage and dissemination of individual camper medications. Please contact the appropriate program administrator at the top of this page for assistance.
If my camper is not interested in any particular sport, is there an exercise or general activity camp available?
  • Yes, our Strength & Conditioning Camp is our most well-attended camp each summer as it not only satisfies the need for our student-athletes to train for upcoming sports seasons but also the need for general exercise and activities that are not sport specific. This camp DOES IT ALL and is also a great way for new students to the school to get to know other kids and the overall culture on campus!
  • In several cases, the Strength & Conditioning Camp also serves in place of individual high school sports team camps over the summer since it is so well attended.
What are the inclement and extreme weather policies?
  • NCHS is a Thor Guard campus - that is, the campus utilizes an automated lightning warning and detection system on the roof that can provide sound and strobe alerts. Additionally, campus staff can preemptively suspend outdoor activities if/when needed. Indoor spaces on campus will be utilized in the event of inclement weather (camps/courses are NOT automatically called off for the day).
  • During the summer camp/course season, extreme heat is sometimes a possibility. Staff will follow the same heat protocols during the summer as those that are required under NCHS policy during the school year. These include increasing water breaks, limiting periods of outdoor activity, and limiting exposure to the outside altogether (camps/courses are NOT automatically called off for the day).

Drop-off/Pick-up

Where do I drop-off my camper?

  • Drop-off is in the main traffic circle located straight ahead upon entry through the campus main gate. In the interest of space and numbers, there will likely be traffic cones directing cars first around the parking lot, then through the traffic circle for drop-off, and finally back out of the main gate. There will be no need for parents/guardians to park and exit vehicles.
  • Exceptions to this are the Swim Camps, which gather under the covered entrance to the Arena/Natatorium, and the Strength & Conditioning Camp, which gathers near the weightroom just past the Arena/Natatorium on the west side of campus.
