Yes, if you want to drop in for a week, please show up Monday morning at 8:50 to sign up. If it's your first camp of the summer we'll need a registration form. If you've attended camp already this summer, we'll just need payment.

For a day rate it's $50 for half day and $70 for full day. Planning on coming for multiple days? Ask us about our discoutned punch cards for a discount.

Yes! If your child is having SO much fun at camp and wants to stay all day, extended rates are $20 per day.

If we are only able to attend a partial week, can I pay a pro-rated amount? (Not for Summer 2021, hopefully next year!)

Yes! Per-day rates for the morning session are $50 per day, and full day sessions are $70 per day.

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, 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 a snack and fresh fruit at 11am and 2pm daily, campers should bring their own lunch for all day camp and extra snacks as they might need.

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? (Not for Summer 2021, hopefully next year!)

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(Not for Summer 2021, hopefully next year!) 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 2020.

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.
