Logistics

Where to meet on the first day?

Campers can meet directly at the beach volleyball courts on the first day. We can set up EZ-Ups outside of the beach volleyball facility in one of the staff parking stalls or directly inside the facility. We have a grandstand that seats over 200 people, so they can hang out inside after registered.

Where to park?

Campers/Parents may park along the fence near the multi-purpose lot on weekends but must purchase a parking permit to do so ($3). Parking permits are located along South College Circle in the form of small yellow ticket dispenser kiosks. Most accept dollar bills/credit cards. You may also park along South College Circle either in Lot 6 or along the sides of the tennis courts.

(Big red circles are parking locations on attached campus map. Signs showing “$P” on campus map shows permit dispensers)

What to bring?

  • Bring sand socks (might get cold in the morning)
  • Extra Long Sleeve pant/jacket (cold in morning)
  • Sunscreen
  • Sunglasses
  • Water Bottle (we have a filling station located inside the courts)
