Where will my child be staying?
All resident campers will be staying in the residence halls in the Eleanor Roosevelt College area of UCSD's campus. The Eleanor Roosevelt College residence halls are suites allowing several campers to interact within their own common living space.

How can my child get from the airport or train to campus?
Due to University Policy, we do not offer airport/train station pick-ups or drop offs. Here are a few suggestions:
- Cloud 9 Shuttle $19 (one way) www.cloud9shuttle.com

See Water Polo Camper Checklist.
Who is watching them at night in the dorms? Will someone walk them over after practice at night? How far is the pool from the Dorm?
Campers are supervised at all times by UC San Diego Water Polo Camp Staff. The ratio is 8 campers to 1 staff member. Each room will be assigned a staff member to monitor during non-water polo activities. A staff member will be supervising the campers to and from all practices. The distance from the dorm to the pool is less than a 8 minute walk.
Directions and Parking
CLICK HERE to get directions to UCSD Canyon View Pool. The best place to park is lot P510, just East of the pool. You can enter the lot off of Voigt Dr. The link leads you to another lot which is also an option but does not provide access as easily to the front entrance. We will have our check-in on the deck at Canyonview Pool. There will be signs leading you there from the main entrance to help you find your way.
Camp Food Selection
Campers will be eating buffet style in on campus dining facilities. There will be vegetarian options at all meals.
