Q: Where are the dorms in relation to the fields?  Are they air-conditioned ?
A: The dorms are located just a short walk to the fields and the cafeteria is in the adjacent dorm. Some camps require 1/2 mile or more walks to get to the cafeteria - not this one!!!  Air-conditioning after a long day at training definitely feels good and is necessary to cool the body down for the next day's training.  THERE ARE NO REFRIGERATORS IN THE DORMS but there is free wifi for all campers.
