What airport do I fly in to and how do I get to campus?
You can fly into Denver International Airport. If you are a traveling camper and need a ride to / from the airport to campus, please contact us and we will help set-up transportation.
What type of supervision is available during the camp?
Colorado State Lacrosse has a staff of coaches and full-time counselors (24-hour) that direct and supervise activities. In addition, there will be multiple counselors on each residence hall floor. Camper to staff ratio is around 5:1 and campers are supervised at all times. Camp directors reserve the right to dismiss any camper for any serious violation of camp rules and regulations. There will be no tuition refund upon voluntary withdrawal or expulsion from Ram Camp. There are no guaranteed refunds due to camp ending injuries.
What are the rules and regulations for camp?
Camp rules and regulations will be reviewed on registration day. In general we expect all campers to be on their best behavior at all times and respect all members of the CSU community, including other campers, counselors, University administration and anyone else who might be on campus. Any serious camp violation will be cause for immediate dismissal with no refund. Please be advised that overnight campers may not leave the campus at any time and bullying will not be tolerated.
What if a camper needs to be contacted?
We recognize that most campers will have cell phones and will utilize them to maintain contact with family and friends. However, if a message needs to be forwarded to a camper they can be reached by calling Ryan MacDonald, CSU Men’s Lacrosse Head Coach & Executive Camp Director at (303) 204-5464.
What happens if my child has an injury or illness?
When a camper requires medical attention during the day, he is taken first to our training room, then directly to the Colorado State University Hartshorn Health Service, if needed. If hospital care is needed, a member of the camp staff will phone the parents of the camper immediately to advise them of the situation. After hours, campers will be sent to the emergency room at Poudre Valley Hospital, accompanied by a staffer.
There will be shade tents for campers to get out of the heat as well as a certified athletic trainer during camp activities.
Where and when should I pick up my commuting camper?
Commuting campers will check out of the residence halls at 11:00 am on Friday, June 23 at the conclusion of the morning session. The Camp Staff will have an awards party just before check-out on the lacrosse fields. All campers should be finished with the camp and checked out between 11:00 am and noon.
What if I lose my key?
At the time of check out from the residence hall, the room key must be returned. If the key is lost or not returned, the camper will be charged $60 for a replacement key. Any damage done to the room will be charged at check out as well.
