Frequently Asked Questions:
Will masks be mandatory at Bomber Sports Camp?
As of right now, we simply do not know. If camp were to start tomorrow, we would all be masked. But we simply cannot predict where we will be on June 7, 2021 so we cannot make that decision today.
When is camp?
The 2021 session of Bomber Sports Camp (for both boys and girls) will run from Monday, June 7th through Friday, June 11th.
Who is eligible for camp?
Camp is open to students entering 2nd grade through students entering 6th grade.
What is the CoVid-19 protocol for Bomber Sports Camp?
At this point in time, we hope to run camp as normally as possible, which includes sports competitions in close environments. We will continue to discuss and implement safety protocols that still allow us to provide the campers with the active competitions they know and love at BSC. We understand and respect that not everyone’s comfort level is the same, so if you are not comfortable with close competitions, we hope to see you at BSC 2022!
What are the enrollment terms for the campers?
For the boys and girls: Enrollment requires a full payment of $350 for the one week session and a fully completed application per child by Saturday, May 15th, 2021. Any registrations received after May 15th will be $375 for the week long session. *if your child cannot participate for any outstanding reasons there will be a $50 refund-processing fee*
What are camp hours?
Camp begins at 9 am and runs until 2:30 pm. While we do not offer before or after care, many campers adore their counselors and the counselors are often looking for babysitting gigs! These arrangements are up to each individual family to coordinate.
How do I communicate with camp?
While camp is in session, the best way to reach a camp director is by cell phone. During the school year, please try them by email first. Contact information can be found on the page labeled “Contacts” or by clicking here.
Where is camp drop-off?
Boys Camp: Drop-off and pick-up will be in the Athletic Center lot off Clayton Road (only entrance on Clayton Road). There will be a Bomber Sports Camp sign clearly marking the correct entrance.
From the North (Ladue Road) and the East (Galleria)
Go south on Price and make a right onto Clayton Road. The JBS entrance is just after Village Lutheran Church on your right.
From the West (Ladue Jr. High)
Go east on Clayton Road. The JBS entrance is on your left, just east of Cella Road.
Girls Camp: Drop-off and pick-up will be at 755 South Price Rd., the main academic entrance to John Burroughs School.
What should I do with my child’s medication?
Every morning, your child(ren) will check in at their respective Bomber Sports Camp tent to drop off their lunch and medication. Please put your child’s name on his/her medication. Additionally, please provide detailed instructions for how to help your child take his/her medication (if necessary).
*Please note that we do have a certified athletic trainer or a registered nurse on campus at all times to help handle any medical needs any camper may have.
What should my child wear to camp?
On the first day of camp we will hand out our Bomber Sports Camp shirts. Ideally, your child would wear them every day. However, we do realize that eventually these shirts will need to be washed (especially after all of the sports and games they will be playing!) On laundry days, please have your camper wear a yellow t-shirt if they’re in the 4-6th grade “league” or a blue shirt if they’re in the 2-3rd grade “league” so they can be easily identified as Bomber Sports campers. In addition to their blue/ yellow shirts, they should wear athletic shorts, tennis shoes, and sunscreen every day!
*Note for girl campers- bring a swimsuit, towel and mouth guard each day.
** As mentioned above, please lather your child in sunscreen every morning before drop off. We supply sunscreen as well and invite the children to re-apply as often as desired, but starting off the day with total protection is the most vital part of your child’s sun protection day.
What equipment should my child bring to camp?
Other than a water bottle and their lunch, the kids don’t need to bring anything else! The camp will provide all sports equipment. However, if your camper loves his baseball glove or her field hockey stick and would prefer to bring their own, then by all means…bring it! Please label everything and we will keep the campers belongings in their team bins.
