Housing

Housing

Housing is administered by The University of Michigan Conference Management Services.  Most of your questions can be answered by visiting their web site:  https://conferences.umich.edu/participants/wolverine/.

Beds are twin XL and swimmers must bring their own bedding.  There are only double rooms.

Rooms are not airconditioned.  For swimmers with severe asthma or allergies rooms with AC can be prearranged by calling this number:  734-764-2000.

Swimmers can choose their own roommate at the dorm check in.  Otherwise swimmers will be paired by gender and age.

Check In

Check In

Check In is from 1-3 pm on Sunday afternoon at Canham Natatorium.  Swimmers will be given their group assignment.  Our Athletic Trainer will be present to check for the Physical Examination form and handle any questions regarding medications or physical problems.  We will have a camp store with t-shirts, caps, sweatshirts, snorkels, etc.  Intensive Track swimmers and Commuters will also have a separate check in area.

Once the pool check in is completed, overnight campers will go to South Quad dorm (maps provided) to check in there.

There will be no meal provided prior to the 6 pm camp start time.  Swimmers will need to eat prior to the start of camp.

Check Out

Check Out

Camp ends on Thursday at 11 am.  Swimmers with parents in attendance at the pool, and Commuters will be dismissed first.  Overnight campers without parents in attendance will be escorted back to South Quad Dorm per usual.  All overnight campers must check out at the dorm.  Commuters must stay at the pool until they sign out with a parent or approved guardian.

Meals

Meals

For information about meals during camp go to this site:  https://dining.umich.edu/about-our-food/summer-camps/.  Our staff eats all meals with the campers.  Commuters have a special airconditioned area to relax after their meals, supervised by our staff.

A 4th meal will be offered each night as the exclusive option for campers late night meals and snacks. Tickets are an additional $8.00 per night per camper and can be purchased during check in or each night at the dining hall. The 4th meal is an all you care to eat buffet style meal offering a variety of items such as pizza, hamburgers, french fries, ice cream, and more!

Supervision

Supervision

Supervision is handled by the staff of the Michigan Swim Camps and the staff at Conference Management Services.  The dorm staff and hall conselors are responsible from 8:30 pm until 8:00 am.  Our staff has primary responsibility during the day.

We escort the swimmers to and from the dorm for each of the three sessions (9-11 am, 2-4 pm, and 6:30-8:30 pm).  We maintain a minimum ration of 1:20.

Our staff eats all of their meals in the cafeteria with the swimmers.

The University of Michigan Public Safety Department has an officer on site to handle any serious incidents in the dorm.

Commuters

Commuters

All Commuters must check in at Canham Natatorium between 1 and 3 pm on Sunday afternoon.  We have counselors dedicated to the Commuters who will check them in and check them out accordingly before and after each session.  Parents must fill out a Pick Up Authorization form during initial check in on Sunday.

It is recommended that Commuters sign up for the lunch and dinner meal plan.  Regardless they will be escorted to and from the dorm with the overnight campers for lunch and dinner.  Commuters may be signed out for meals with an approved person.
