Is there a trainer on staff?
Yes, we will have a certified trainer at all our camps. Campers need to bring any important medical information with them. A signed medical release form must be received before the camper can participate. All campers must carry their own insurance.
Bulldog Girls Basketball Camp and Drake University cannot be responsible for injuries sustained at camp. An athletic trainer will be on hand for all sessions, and a doctor is on call. We recommend that each camper be in excellent physical condition. This not only prevents injuries, but also make the learning process much easier.
Can I choose my roommate?
Put the camper you’d like to room with on your registration form. Make sure the person you put down has also requested you as a roommate and sent their deposit in. Campers are housed two to a room. We can put groups of campers next to each other on the same floor.
Is there supervision in the dorms for Overnight Camps?
Each floor will have current Drake players staying overnight. A member of the coaching staff will also be staying in the dorm. Campers will know and understand our dorm policies so everyone is safe.
All Drake University sports camps are open to any and all applicants and are limited only by
the number of slots available per camp and the age, grade level and/or gender of the participant.
