ARRIVAL: Your daughter will be expected to arrive on campus between 4:30 - 6:00 pm Sunday evening. She should report to Wengatz Hall dormitory on the south end of our campus. You should plan to eat dinner before arriving at camp, but a snack will be served to campers at approximately 9:00 pm Sunday evening.

Please be sure to bring a completed health statement form to camp with you which has been signed by a physician and dated within 12 months of the first day of camp indicating that your daughter is in good physical condition to play basketball. A blank Taylor form, which you may take to your physician to be filled out, will be emailed to you with your receipt for your deposit for camp fees or you may print one here. IHSAA or a physician's physical form are both acceptable, as long as they are dated within 12 months of the first day of camp. If you submit a physical form other than the Taylor form, you will still need to sign the Taylor form with consent to dispense Tylenol.

Also, a Camp Participation Waiver, Release of Liability and Medical Authorization Agreement must be completed and brought to camp. A blank form will be mailed to you with your receipt for the deposit for camp fees or you may print one here. Please attach a copy of the front and back of your insurance card to this form.

If applicable, please remember to pay the balance due on your registration online at least one week before camp. If necessary, the balance may be paid by check, money order, or cash at the Sunday night check-in.
