Erie Premier Sports hosts camps at local universities and sports complexes. Sites feature a combination of fields (turf and grass), dormitories (or suite-style apartment complexes), and dining areas for an all-inclusive camp experience.
- Dorm rooms assigned to our camps are typically 4-persons per suite. Some rooms may be 2-persons per suite.
- Each player will receive an entry/meal key card, which is required to gain access to the assigned building.
- Each player will receive a room key for their specific dorm room.
- Bed sizes are either twin or full. Typically the dorm assignments with exact bed sizes are finalized 1-week prior to arrival. We suggest all players prepare to bring full-size bedding. It can always be folded under to accommodate a twin-size bed.
Dorm items to bring.
- All bedding items – sheets, blankets, pillows, pillow cases, sleeping bag, etc.
- All toiletry items – soap, shampoo, toothbrush, toothpaste, towels, sandals, etc.

- Nutritional Information Disclaimer: Be aware that we handle and prepare egg, milk, wheat, shellfish, fish, soy, peanut and tree nut products, and other potential allergens in the food production areas of our facility. We attempt to provide nutrition and ingredient information that is as complete as possible. Products may change without our knowledge and menu items are prepared in close proximity to other ingredients that may result in cross-contact with ingredients not listed, including allergens. Guests with food allergies or specific dietary concerns should speak with a manager for individualized assistance.
- If a player has specific allergic concerns, it’s recommended the player and team representative speak to a manager at the cafeteria prior to their first meal. One of our staff can assist with this process as well.
- Outside food – Players are permitted to order delivery from local restaurants for their dorm rooms. This must be delivered prior to lights out.
- The university lost key fee is $75.00 per key.

- The deposit will be returned at check-out, minus any lost key or card fees.
Check-In / Check-Out
- Check-in ranges between 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM, and is selected by the team contact. Each team selects a 1-hour time slot based on their needs (ie: travel time to the university).
- Please ask your team contact regarding the specific check-in time for your team.
- Check-out is 12:00 PM on the last day of camp. Camp activities typically end around 11:00/11:30 AM, giving players time to clean their rooms prior to check-out.
Players should be prepared for a physically demanding “week” of camp. The schedule features morning fitness sessions, 1-2 practice sessions per day, and 1 game per day. It is important that players come into camp physically ready, as they would for their team pre-season.
