Camp dates and pricing information can be found on the camp specific pages.  To access this information, click on the Sport/Camp you are interested in.

Full tuition is due at the time of registration. No deposits or partial payments will be accepted.  A parent can create one login identity for themselves and register multiple family members to different camps with that one login. At the time of registration, a parent will need to enter all medical emergency contact and insurance information.

Due to high demand, some camps fill very quickly and registering early is recommended. Walk-ons will be accepted in each program on a space-available basis only. For walk-on registrations, please call to check on the status of the program. When you receive your confirmation email, please read it immediately and check it over to verify that all information (camp dates, payment amount, etc.) is correct. Notify us immediately if any of the information is incorrect.


Only a participant and his or her parents have authority to request a refund. There is a $75 non-refundable cancellation fee for ALL cancellations made at least two weeks prior to the first day of camp, in addition to the initial processing fee.  Full refunds, minus the $75 nonrefundable portion of camp tuition, will be given on all cancellations requested at least 2 weeks before the camp begins.  Within two weeks of camp, the nonrefundable cancellation fee increases to $150, in addition to the initial processing fee.  No refunds will be given after the start of camp.

The simplest way to cancel a camp registration is to email with the participant name, camp enrolled in and registration confirmation number. If a program is canceled, a full refund will be given excluding processing fees. USD cannot be held responsible for any change or cancellation charges required by airlines, travel agencies or other institutions.

Transfer is available in some cases. When available, there is no transfer fee when transferring from housing to non-housing within the same sport or when transferring between weeks of the same camp.  When transferring from non-housing to housing the additional housing upgrade fee will apply.  If the new camp is less expensive you will receive a refund.

All transfers can be completed by calling (619) 260-2999 or emailing  Transfers will be granted on a space-available basis only.

Roommate requests should be made at the time of registration. After your registration is complete, you will no longer be able to make or change roommate requests on your online account. In order to make or change a roommate request, please send an email to or call our office at (619) 260-2999 to make that request. Requesting a roommate will not ensure that the person you request will obtain a spot in the camp; they must register for the camp while there is still space available.

Campers participating in resident camps will stay in USD Residence Halls. The cost includes housing and meals for the duration of camp. Please check the respective camp’s page to find out which meals will be provided for non-resident participants. Bedding and linens are not provided so each camper should bring a sleeping bag or sheets and blankets, and a pillow. Participants will be liable for any damage they cause to university property, equipment or facilities.

Roommates are assigned two to a room by preference or by age. No exceptions will be made to this policy. Overnight counselors are provided on each floor. Lights must be out by 10:00 p.m.  Housing and meal cards must stay with the camper at all times.  USD Conference Services charges $40 for lost keys!

For housing participants only:  When resident camp participants are not in evening training sessions, they enjoy structured activities under the direction of their overnight counselors. These activities provide an opportunity for social interaction and fun. Free time may be used to relax, become acquainted with the campus and get to know other participants.

Under the direction of USD's athletic training program, experienced trainers will be present to take preventive action and to provide emergency care during the sports camps.

For minor illnesses, participants may choose to remain in their residence hall rooms or at home. Counselors/coaches must be notified in such cases. Parents of participants with a serious illness will be notified for discussion on the course of action. If parents or guardians cannot be reached, the sick participant may be taken to the hospital for treatment.

For serious injuries, participants will be taken to a local urgent care or emergency room. It is the camp participant’s responsibility to follow the trainers’ instructions. Our office must have on file a medical release form that is included in the online registration process.
