Parent/guardians will need to pick up their child at their assigned dorm. Campers (including daycampers) CANNOT be picked up directly from the gym that they are assigned to – it must be from their assigned dorm.
The amount paid (less $50 AND the online service charge if registered online) is refundable until 30 DAYS before camp begins. No refunds will be made within 30 days of the 1st day of camp, except in case of sickness or injury verified in writing by the parents and a doctor. We cannot accommodate refunds under 30 days due to a school practice/workout schedule change or family vacation. To request a refund, please e-mail Tami Hoffman. We cannot accept refund requests over the phone.
Daycampers will have the same ‘camp hours’ as our boarding campers (approximately 8:00am-8:00pm – this CAN vary depending on their grade). Daycampers will need to eat breakfast before they arrive at camp each day during the week – but lunch and dinner will be provided. Daycampers will be able to keep any bags/belongings that they bring to camp each day secure in our camp headquarters while they are participating in camp. A FULL complete detailed schedule will be passed out to all campers and parent/guardians at check-in on the first day. Plan on being at camp that first Sunday until approximately 8:00pm (please eat lunch that day before arrival).
CAMP PHYSICAL AND WAIVER:
You can download our physical form from our website that you can have your physician fill out or you can use a school physical as long as it is dated within a year of the first day of camp. Your child will need to bring the physical AND waiver form to the first day of camp (do NOT mail these forms in ahead of time) – waiver can also be downloaded from our website. Your child CANNOT participate in camp without these forms turned in on the FIRST day – we will return any forms that are mailed into us ahead of time.
Boarding campers will reside in two different dorms on the University of Kansas campus. We have 3rd grade through 8th grade staying in one dorm and 9th grade through 12th grade staying in a separate dorm (then divided up by grade by floor). If siblings/friends have a child who is (for example) going into 9th grade but his brother is in 6th grade – they CAN stay together in the ‘younger’ dorm. The older sibling will still be on a team/gym with kids his own age, but will reside in the other dorm. Daycampers will be assigned to one of these dorms (depending on their grade/age) for their daily drop off and pick up as well as meals.
There is always a housing staff person at the front desk of each dorm. We have 4 camp coaches per floor that stay in the dorms along with our camp managers/counselors. Our KU basketball manager staff will stay in our Camp Headquarters at each dorm (direct phone number and room location in the dorm will be given out at check-in). Camp Headquarters is open 24/7 for your camper. All campers will know where this room is located if they need any assistance throughout camp or in the middle of the night. We also have our camp trainer staying in the room next to headquarters and available 24/7. All of our camp staff are required to be run through a background check before being hired to work our camp.
CAN MY SON REQUEST A ROOMMATE?
Yes, your son can request one roommate. We cannot accommodate more than 2 campers per room. We cannot accommodate suitemate requests or to be located next to another group of kids – no exceptions. We will guarantee roommate requests as long as BOTH campers request each other. Please make sure you have spelled your son’s roommates name correctly and most important have listed BOTH of their grades correctly for Fall 2019!
WHAT MEALS ARE PROVIDED AT CAMP?
Session 1 & 2
Boarding campers will receive breakfast, lunch and dinner. Daycampers will receive lunch and dinner. If your child has a food allergy, please indicate on the medical form and notify our medical staff at check-in on the 1st day. If your child requires special food or you would like to speak with the dietician in charge of the meals during camp, you can contact Tami Hoffman (firstname.lastname@example.org) 2 weeks before the start of your camp and she will be able to provide a name and contact phone number/e-mail of the dietician. Please make sure your child eats lunch on Sunday before camp – the 1st meal that day will be dinner. Meals are for the campers only – extra meals cannot be purchased for parents to eat at camp.
WHAT SHOULD MY CHILD BRING TO CAMP?
Please bring appropriate basketball/workout gear for the amount of days of camp. You will need to bring bed linens (beds are twin), blanket (rooms are air conditioned), pillow, toiletries and towels. An extra pair of shoes/slides is recommended so you are not wearing your court shoes outside. You will not need to bring a water bottle for your time on the basketball court – we will have water/Gatorade stations set up at all courts. You are welcome to keep extra waters or snacks in your dorm room if you choose (refrigerators are not provided in the dorm rooms). It is helpful to bring an alarm clock for your dorm room to make sure you wake up and are ready on time. The Bill Self Kansas Basketball Camp is not responsible for any personal items brought to camp. Our camp staff will go through the dorm hallways to make sure everyone is up and ready for breakfast each day and in their rooms each evening. Your child will get their name checked off for every meal and line-up to make sure they are on time. If your sons loses his dorm key assigned to him, the camp staff will get a new key for his dorm and you will need to pay a $30.00 lost key fee before you can check-out of camp.
WHERE CAN I PARK ON CAMPUS?
The KU parking department will ticket any car that is parked on campus without a proper parking permit M-F (7 am-5:30 pm). You can park in the Allen Fieldhouse parking garage, located on the north side of Allen Fieldhouse for $1.75 per hour (cash or credit card).

LATE ARRIVAL OR DEPARTURE DURING CAMP:
If you are arriving late to camp – please contact Tami Hoffman (email@example.com) the week of camp to find out the dorm assignment of your child and she can give you the appreciate instructions. Even daycampers will be assigned a dorm to report to each day. If your child will need to leave during camp, please stop at the “Missed Sessions” table at check-in on the first day to notify the camp staff the day and time your child will need to miss (for a baseball game, family event or other activity). We understand that everyone has busy schedules and it is helpful for us to know this by the first day of camp to help assure we can communicate the proper drop-off and pick up with you.
PARENTS VISITING DURING CAMP:
YES! We always welcome parents/family members to come and watch their children/friends/relatives that are at camp. You will receive a complete schedule for camp on the first day. You are also welcome to stop by your child’s assigned dorm headquarters to drop off needed items throughout camp. eg: money for camp store, snacks, ‘forgotten’ items etc.
We will have items available to purchase on the first day of camp as well at the dorms throughout the week. Your child is responsible for their own money so please take this into consideration. We will also sell small pizzas and Gatorade each evening in the dorms for a snack when the campers return from their last evening session in the dorm. These pizzas range around $7/$8 per pizza.
