Frequently Asked Questions


Can my child be dropped off/picked up by another adult?

You are more than welcome to carpool to camp. At check-in and check-out we will require each player to be signed in and signed out by a responsible adult. This does not have to be the camper’s parent, but this adult will assume all responsibility for the player arriving at and departing camp.

Is my son allowed to drive himself and his friends to camp?

If your child will be driving himself or anyone else to camp we ask that each parent please send an email to info@rhinolacrosse.comletting us know that they will be checking themselves in and out. Upon check-in our staff must be given any car keys, as players are not to be driving off of campus during camp.

Any cars that are parked on campus during the camp are subject to the schools parking policies.

When will my son receive his room assignment?

Players will receive their room assignments upon check-in. We try our best to match each player with their requested roommate. If for some reason this is not possible, we try to match players with other individuals from their school or club team.

Staff will be dispersed throughout the dorm rooms to ensure that all players are accounted for. Should your child have an issue or concern during the night, the staff member will be available for them.

Will bedding be provided? 

Pillows and linens are not provided. You can bring your own or rent them from NAU during camp. You can rent pillows and linens during check-in from NAU. Please note that these beds are twin XL.

Are the dorms air-conditioned?

No the dorms have no air conditioning. Please send your players with fans or anything else they may want to stay cool!

Do I need to pack any meals?

All campers’ meals are included in their camp package. Players may bring snacks to keep in their dorm rooms.

What if my child has food allergies?

Due to the fact that we are limited to the cafeteria that the Kent School allows us to use, we cannot guarantee that all food allergy needs will be met. Campers themselves are responsible for limiting the risk of their food allergy exposure.

Will my child need any spending money?

Spending money can be spent on campus at vending machines and the camp store. This year the camp store will feature equipment and apparel by Powell Lacrosse. These items can be purchased throughout the duration of camp.  

Will water be provided?

Our Athletic Trainers, will be at check-in to speak with parents or other responsible adults about campers medical needs and conditions. They will record any medication and instructions for these medications. Campers may keep their medications with them, or you may give them to the Athletic Trainers to hold on to and give to the staff member responsible for your child at night.
