FAQs

There are multiple weeks of camp posted, should I attend one camp? Or multiple camps?

While the curriculum is the same for each week of camp, the camps are separate. We schedule the camps throughout the summer as we understand the challenges of summer schedules, and we often have returning campers looking to attend multiple weeks. Each camp is with filled with different and fun personalities, and we regularly have families bring their children out for more than one camp per summer. We’d love to host you for one camp, or more if at all possible!

What are the equipment needs of campers?


 
Shinguards are required for all Half Day and Extended Day campers, and while not required for Tikes & Spikes campers, we do encourage campers to wear shinguards at all age groups. Cleats are also encourage, but not required. If not wearing cleats, any athletic shoe will work fine, particularly at our younger age groups. Campers are also encouraged to bring sunscreen, a hat, and rain jacket; as we often have changing weather and rain during the summer. Each camper will be given an LSA T-Shirt, Soccer Ball, and Water Ball at Check-In.

Are their restrooms on site?

Yes! We have on site bathroom facilities for campers and families

Do you have an athletic trainer?

Yes, we have a certified athletic trainer on site for the entirety of the camp. For any special medical needs, parents can speak to our trainer at camp check-in, and input any special medical considerations into the health form on your online account on our website.

What happens if there is bad weather?

In the case of rain, we will continue with camp as scheduled, and we encourage campers to bring rain jackets just in case. If the forecast for the day projects unsafe conditions for that entire day, we will make that decision by 7am each morning. Updates will be added to the front page of our website, in addition to sending out a mass email communication, and updating our weather hotline. If bad weather rolls through during camp, we have access to multiple pavilions where we can take campers safely and out of the conditions until the weather is deemed safe to participate again. Camp will go on as scheduled whenever possible to do so safely!  

Can you tell me about your staff?

We build our staff with local teachers, coaches, and enthusiastic young athletes! All of our staff have up to date child abuse, background check, and FBI clearances. 

How will Covid make this summer look different?

The LSA staff will work to create a fun learning and camp environment, while ensuring the safety of all campers, staff, parents, visitors, and the local community. We have followed the guidance of the Pennsylvania Department of Health (https://www.media.pa.gov/Pages/Health-Details.aspx?newsid=1425) and CDC Guidelines (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/schools-childcare/summer-camps.html) to create our Summer 2021 Camp Protocol.
 
For those returning to camp, things will look a bit different this summer, however we are committed to ensuring an excellent camp experience as we’ve done for the last 20+ summers! A few important changes:
 
-       Masks and social distancing (at least 3 feet) are required for anyone not fully vaccinated- during check-in, morning greeting, breaks, pickup
-       Masks are encouraged, but not required, during the participation and exertion components of camp
-       All non-fully vaccinated LSA staff will be masked for the entirety of camp
-       Campers will be cohorts by age group, and will not have any participation or contact outside of their cohort
-       Snacks/candy/etc. that is given to campers by LSA staff will be limited from previous summers, and if given will be individually wrapped. We are encouraging parents to send their camper with snacks during break periods.
