Camps

Mission Statement
Summer is the perfect time to play sports, meet new friends and experience different adventures. The Siena College sports camps offer you all those opportunities and more. The Siena coaching staff, Siena players, and other college players and coaches will teach you during the week. The emphasis will be on individual improvement and team competition, and the instruction will include informative lectures from visiting coaches. Along with the sports instruction you receive, you will have the chance to meet new friends and experience life on a college campus, from Siena's Marcelle Athletic Complex to its dining hall.

The objective of the Siena camp is to learn while having fun, regardless of age, sport experience, or skill level. You will be grouped with other campers with similar athletic backgrounds in the same age group. The many hours of individual instruction you receive will be in small groups and supported with demonstrations and analysis from the coaching staff.

If you want to learn more about a sport, and do so in an exciting environment, then a Siena camp is for you.

Registration
To enroll in the Siena sports camp, a parent or guardian should complete all parts of the application form following instructions for submitting online.

Space in the camps is limited, so early enrollment is suggested. Registrants accepted will receive a confirmation letter with notification of any program changes and first day of camp details. Please save this letter for future reference. Registrants not admitted will receive refunds. Walk-in registration on the first day of camp cannot be guaranteed. It is important to note that all registration forms go through the Office of Business Affairs. Registrants that do not go through this process cannot be guaranteed space in camp.

Fees and Refunds
The camp fee (see below) covers meals (lunch for day camp -breakfast lunch and dinner for overnight camp), camp tee shirt, special gift, accident insurance and instruction.

What the Campers Receive
The campers will receive a week of skill related training to assist in improving their individual skills. The concept of teamwork and competition will also be taught through games and other structured activities. Campers will be grouped by skill level and age with a coach to guide them through the camp.

All campers will receive a Siena College Sports Camp tee shirt and a special gift. Campers and their parents/guardians will receive a pre-camp booklet that details the week ahead of them. In addition, campers will receive a post-camp booklet that includes a review of the camp, tips on how to continue individual skill development, and a personal evaluation.
