How are campers divided/grouped?
In general, campers are divided by age and not skill level. During the week coaches may make some minor adjustments based on skill level to help a player's overall experience. Please understand that we cannot guarantee or know in advance the overall competitive level.
Can campers be paired with friends/teammates?
We are open to pairing requests if you identify the friends/teammates with whom your child would like to be grouped with, but there are no guarantees those requests can be met.
Health Forms
All campers are required to have health insurance coverage and provide the College with recent medical reports. A report of a physical examination conducted within the last 18 months as well as an immunization record completed by your doctor will need to be submitted no later than two weeks prior to the start of camp. Gordon does not require that a specific form be used, only that all information is submitted. Doctors will usually mail or fax these upon request.

Camp Waivers
All campers are required to have an Emergency Contact, Health History, Pick-Up Release, and Epipen (if applicable) Form on file. These forms are available on the Forms tab on the header at the top of the page.

Registration/Drop-off and Pick-up
Registration, drop-off and pick-up information varies depending on the camp’s location on campus. You will receive this information via email from the coaches of each respective camp. If you have any questions about this at any time, please reach out to the camp staff.

Inclement Weather
In the event of inclement weather, outdoor camps will do their best to utilize indoor space to continue camp training. However, because there are other camps in session at the same time we are limited in our facility space, so we will likely supplement with film sessions and other games until the weather passes.
Athletic Training/Medical Staff
Certified, full-time athletic trainers and student trainers provide immediate treatment to campers in need. Trained EMTs are available on campus and local hospitals are easily accessible if necessary. If your child has a pre-existing medical condition, requires medication, or carries emergency medication such as an Epipen, please notify the camp director and/or the medical staff. If your child carries an Epipen, you are required to submit a Permission to Administer Epipen Form which is included in the Camp Waiver Forms download.

Camp medical advising and oversight is provided by Gordon Athletics team physician, Dr. Navid Mahooti MD, MPH, of the North Shore Medical Center (978-882-6700).

Do you offer Discounts?
Yes! We offer a Gordon College Employee Discount and Sibling Discount. If you are a Gordon College employee or have sibling children wishing to register for camps, please email requesting the discount code that applies to your situation.

What if I have to cancel a camp?
Full refunds can only be issued if camp staff is notified in writing (email) 14 days prior to the start of camp. If extenuating circumstance necessitates you canceling your camp registration, please contact the camp director directly. If camp is cancelled due to COVID-19, a full refund will be issued to all registrants.

All correspondence for camp is handled through email so please provide your most relevant email address when registering. We do not share this information with anyone. Additional information and camp updates will take place more often as the start of camp approaches, so please check your email regularly.

Massachusetts Policy
Massachusetts requires that every camp provide a copy of their background check, health care, discipline, and grievance policies to any parent or guardian upon request. If you would like a copy or have a question not covered above, please contact us at 978.867.4338 so that we may better assist you.
