Resident Information

The cost of the week long camp is $795 for resident campers. The camp fee includes: instruction, swim cap, T-shirt, photo, instructional DVD, booklet, goody bag, room and board, and use of the facilities. The first meal served in the dormitory cafateria will be Monday breakfast, and the last meal served will be Thursday breakfast. UM dorms are only opened for overnight lodging Sunday through Wednesday night. Swim camp sessions will begin on Sunday evening after check in and conclude by Thursday at noon. Room assignments will be made by UM residence hall counselors at check in on Sunday. UM Housing only offers double rooms and requests that all roommates check in together. All residence halls are supervised by university personnel, counselors, security, and supervisors. The dormitory experience may be intimidating for some younger campers, because of this, we STRONGLY advise those 10-12 year olds to attend with a friend. If you have concerns or questions regarding supervision, please call the camp office. Meals are prepared and served in each dormitory's cafeteria facilities. An exceptional menu with a wide assortment of foods will be prepared and offer unlimited helpings that are sure to satisfy the biggest appetites.

Children must be at least 10 years old to stay in the dorms overnight.
