In order for you to participate in a Brown University's summer sports camp, all campers are required to complete a checklist of items that includes camp forms.
Residential Campers or campers staying overnight will need to complete:
Commuter and Day Campers will need to complete:
Campers must complete their portion of the forms first
Step 1: An email will be sent to the Camper Email and Parent Email addresses provided during registration. This email will contain a link to view your camper’s personalized checklist. A separate email that will contain an access code will be sent to the Parent Email. This code will be needed for Step 3.
Step 2: The camper will select the Required Program Forms and follow the directions on screen to complete the forms.
Step 3: Each time the camper has filled out their portion of a form, parents/guardians will be sent an email notification stating that they are now able to complete their portion of the form. Most forms require both camper and parent signatures.
**Forms for all campers under 12 as of June 1, 2019 are completed by parents only.
If you have questions about forms submission, you can speak to Sports Camps Staff member by calling 401-863-5988 during business hours (Monday - Friday, 8:30AM to 4:45PM EST), or email us at email@example.com.
For commuter-only camps: Please see your camp packet for check-in locations and procedures.
For residential camps: Unless otherwise noted, all check-ins will take place at Andrews Dining Hall (95 Cushing Street Providence, RI 02906). For parking information, please see your camp packet.
When you arrive, please follow the “Brown Sports Camps” signs to Andrews Dining Hall where you will see a series of tables. You must check in at each table before you are able to participate in camp activities.
After check-in, residential campers will move into their residence halls.
Meals are not typically served before/around the time of check-ins, so aim to come to campus on a full stomach or bring snacks with you. If you are looking for a place to eat, we recommend any of the wonderful dining options on nearby Thayer Street.
Providence is served by Amtrak and Boston's Commuter Rail. The Providence Amtrak train station is a short ride to the University. (100 Gaspee St, Providence, RI 02903)
Providence is served by Peter Pan Bus Lines. The Providence terminal is a short ride to the University. (1 Bonanza Way, Providence, RI 02904)
T.F. Green International Airport located in the city of Warwick, is approximately 10 miles from the University. A variety of ground transportation is available from the terminal to Providence.
Brown University is about an hour and thirty minute drive from Logan Airport in Boston, Massachusetts. Students will need to find their own transportation from Boston Logan Airport to and from campus.
In recent years, bus, train, and airline carriers have instituted a range of policies related to unaccompanied minors traveling. Brown Sports Camps are unable to meet many of these new requirements, so we urge families/guardians to review their likely carrier’s policies early and make decisions about travel based on the assumption that athletes must arrive on campus and depart campus at the end of their program without assistance from the Sports Camp programs.
Each residence hall room provides typical college furniture: a bed, desk and chair, dresser, trash can, and access to wireless internet. Linens, pillow cases and towels (Twin Extra-Long) are not provided for campers. Please also note that the residence halls do not have A/C. Bringing a fan is recommended. Most campers find that cell phones are a convenient way to stay in touch with family members while at camp.
A team of carefully selected and trained Residence Directors (RDs) and Residential Advisors (RAs) live in the residence halls. These skilled and caring adult professionals and Brown undergraduates are on hand to assist you in navigating the transition from home to your sports camp.
To provide a typical Brown University experience, and due to the volume of residential campers arriving each week, campers are randomly assigned a roommate so that they can build friendships with new people. Campers are typically assigned to double occupancy rooms or single-sex suites in various residence halls on campus. Campers may request a roommate in advance of arrival when they register. Roommate requests will be honored when possible but are not guaranteed.
There are laundry facilities in the basements of all residence halls. All washers and dryers operate using Bear Bucks. To pay for laundry services you must purchase a bear Bucks Guest Card for $1.00 at any Value Port machine. You will need to supply your own detergent, softener and bleach.
Although campers should make every effort to plan their travel to Brown based on their camp start and end date, procedures are in place to accommodate 1day early arrival and 1day late departure for those campers who are traveling from long distances and need to work around flight schedules. The cost for additional housing is $100/night and includes room and board (Dinner is available until 7:30 pm in the dining hall).
All campers interested in Additional Housing must request permission and register online no later than one week before the start of camp. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request and receive authorization code.
*This service is not available from camps or clinics before June 14, 2019 or after August 6, 2019.
On your Camp Packet you will find a list of sport-specific equipment to bring to camp. Other common necessities might be:
You will find in your room: bed, desk and chair, dresser, wireless internet and trash can.
Athletes should bring a fan, as the dormitories have no air conditioning.
You may NOT bring pets, cooking devices, air conditioners, or motor vehicles to campus (except commuter students).
Brown University issues one room key to each camper assigned a room in a Brown residence hall during summer months. Campers are expected to be in possession of their room key whenever they leave the room, even if it's "just for a minute."
All keys are due immediately upon checking out of your room. This is necessary both for reasons of security and to allow us to make the room available for the next resident. Campers receive information about where and how to return keys once on campus.
