What should my child bring to camp?

Soccer shorts, shin guards, and cleats are generally recommended for all campers, though comfortable athletic attire and tennis shoes will suffice. We provide plenty of water breaks and a small snack, but campers are welcome to bring their own lunches and water bottles. Sunscreen and/or hats are also recommended to prevent sunburns. **Please take note of what your child brings to camp each morning—sweatshirts, hats, and backpacks are often left behind at the end of the day and Santa Cruz Soccer Camp is not responsible for lost items.**

Do I need to bring a snack or lunch?

We provide Gatorade, dry snack, and some type of fruit at 11am and 2pm daily, but campers may bring their own food if necessary.

All day campers must bring a lunch.

Why is Friday special?

Friday is the culmination of each camp session. Parents arrive at noon for a parent-camper soccer game followed by an awards ceremony and a finger-food potluck barbeque. Please note that Friday all-day sessions end at 2:00pm!

What is the parent-camper game?

The parent-camper game is a unique experience offered only by Santa Cruz Soccer Camp! Parents and campers come together in the spirit of friendly competition for our weekly parents versus campers’ soccer game. The campers show off the skills, moves, and teamwork they learned throughout the week as the parents try to keep up. Split into two halves, the youngest groups play their parents first while the older campers cheer in support on the sidelines until they switch roles during ‘half time.’ Everyone is welcome—parents, grandparents, distant relatives, and friends are all encouraged to participate!

What should I bring to the BBQ?

Please bring some type of finger-food to contribute to the potluck barbeque. We provide hot dogs, buns, and plates. Cookies, brownies, fruit, and chips are usually in hot demand!

Do you offer camper scholarships?

Yes! We are proud to offer scholarships to campers in need. Please contact owner, Bill Trimpi, directly to discuss the application process. (831)-246-1517.

How do I donate to the scholarship fund?

Our scholarship fund relies on generous donations from individual families and community organizations. Please contact Bill Trimpi, camp owner, at (831) 246-1517 for more information. Direct donations can be made to Santa Cruz Soccer Camp You can also enclose donations for the scholarship fund when you mail in your camper’s registration form.

Does Santa Cruz Soccer Camp operate during the year?

Yes! An indoor soccer camp is offered at Holy Cross Gym during winter break. Unfortunately, we do not currently offer a Spring Break camp, since most of our staff works during the school year and they enjoy the short break as well.

Starting in Spring of 2015, we are happy to announce our new Spring Camp! Consisting of four Saturday sessions (4/11, 4/18, 4/25, and 5/2) at Happy Valley School, 5 and 6 year olds are invited to attend from 9am-10am, and 7-10 year olds from 10:30am-12pm.
