This would be most helpful and ensure a smooth check-in. If you need to be there before noon because of flights or whatever, please email, Becky Turnbaugh topprospectcamp@gmail.com, and we will do our best to accommodate. Check-in is done in Kemp Hall.Tuition $625 - All fees paid are non refundable.

Check out will start at 12 noon on Thursday, June 27th. We encourage parents to come back early, 9 am, and watch the last 2 games of the session.  Town Car transportation is available through the airports. .  

In checking medical information, we do not have many issues with players so if you forgot to bring something to our attention please email it ASAP. We do ask that you do not send snacks that could affect a camper with peanut allergies. A little consideration will go a long way protecting our fellow campers! Camp will have 2 medical trainers on site with each camper’s medical and emergency contact information. The closest hospital is Meritus Medical Center located at 11116 Medical Campus Road in Hagerstown, Maryland 21742 in case of a medical emergency.

We ask that you refrain from trying to “watch” camp Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday. We don’t want to be constantly checking on every adult to make sure they are a parent in order to ensure the safety of all our campers. No “helicoptering” allowed, please and thank you.

Boys are permitted to bring cell phones and other electronics. Please note we are not responsible for any lost or broken items.

We look forward to working with you/your son and believe we have a great plan in place!
