After June 1st there is a 25% fee for a refund from cancelation. Pending avaialbility you may transfer your registration to another week this summer.

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 work too. We provide plenty of water breaks and a small snack break, 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?

Yes, campers need to bring their own snack and lunch. All campers should bring some food and water, as we exert lots of energy in teh warm sun! Snack time is provided between 10:30 and 11:00am daily, with lunch for all-day campers at 12:30.

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 1:00pm!

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 apply here for summer 2024.

How do I donate to the scholarship fund?

Our scholarship fund relies on generous donations from individual families and community organizations. If you would like to help us serve more kids in the community you can can add a donation when you register online.

Does Santa Cruz Soccer Camp operate during the year?

We currently do not offer any camps during the year. We are always thinking of new ideas and looking to expand, so stay tuned.
