Frequently Asked Questions

 Is there an emergency number, in case I need to reach my child?

The Portland State Volleyball Camp main number is 770-866-5356 or, if needed, campus security can be reached at 503-725-4407

 Is there a certified athletic trainer?

Yes, we have a certified athletic trainer at all sessions during camp to monitor any injuries or illnesses. He/she will, also, be available during registration to talk to parents and/or campers about specific needs.

 How do you divide campers into skill groups?

Each camper will be placed in a group and evaluated on the first day.  If the camp staff feels the camper needs to change groups, we do that as soon as possible.

 Is there supervision in the residence hall?

We will have multiple camp counselors in every wing of the residence hall.  They do nightly bed checks to make sure each camper is accounted for and safe in their room.

 Are there airport shuttles to and from camp?

Yes, we have a $60 fee to pick-up and return campers safely from the airport.  If you only need a one-way transport, it is $30.  If you need to take advantage of this service, please let us know as soon as possible. Portland International Airport (PDX) is about 20 minutes from campus.

 Is it possible to come watch my daughter play?

Yes, you can come anytime. Most parents attend on the last day when we are in tournament play.  There will be a final day schedule handed out at registration.

 Will my daughter need money at camp?

Residents also have the option of ordering pizza and receiving it at the end of the night session.

 Does each camper need a recent sports physical?

No, a physical is not needed. Each camper does need to turn in the Release Statement signed by a parent or guardian. Also, each camper has to turn in a copy of their insurance card. Both of these need to be sent or turned in prior to the start of camp.

 What does each camper receive?

Each camper will get a camp t-shirt and camp certificate.

 What do campers need to bring to camp?

  • Comfortable athletic shoes

 How do I register?

You can register online via this website, or you can print out the application and send it to the address listed on the application. The cost is the same if you register online or through the mail.

 Are there any refunds?

Of your camp payment, $100 is considered a non-refundable deposit that holds your camper’s spot in the camp. Since camp will be sold-out, we unfortunately have to turn many applications away once we are full. If your child is dismissed from camp for disciplinary reasons, there will be no refund.

 Will there be a lot of walking?

The facilities utilized by the camp are within walking distance of one another.

 What if I need to take my camper out of camp due to a previously arranged appointment?

The parent needs to inform the camp director of any departures from camp. At that time, a departure and arrival time and place will be agreed upon.

 Can a camper drive to camp?

Yes. Resident campers’ keys will be collected at the beginning of camp and returned at the end of camp.  Commuters will be allowed to keep their keys, but not be allowed to utilize their car on campus, except for their arrival and departure each day.

Each camper will be responsible for paying for parking.

 Is there a GPS address for registration?

The GPS address for the Peter W. Stott Center is 930 SW Hall Street Portland, Oregon 97205. However, do not mail anything to this address. It is strictly for travel purposes.

 Can mail be delivered to campers?

No mail cannot be delivered to campers.

 If I can’t attend the entire camp, can I still sign up?

Partial camp fees are not generally accepted, but will be done on a limited basis.  Contact Coach Walker for details at dwalk2@pdx.edu or 770-866-5356.
