What do I need to bring to camp?
Portland campers should bring their own helmets, shoes, shells (shells are only needed for the Portland camp since it is a full contact camp) and mouthpiece. The camp will not be offering any type of rental equipment so it is mandatory that you supply your own. Campers in New Orleans in Dallas only need to bring a mouthpiece and turf football shoes as these will be non-contact camps per state law. If you do not have the above items you will not be able to participate in Trench Camp. You are required to bring a copy of proof-of-insurance. Without proof-of-insurance your camper will not be allowed to participate. It is also a good idea to bring water, snacks and sunscreen.
Will Trench Camp Provide Lunch/Meals?
In the past, our camp has provided sandwiches at lunch, however, as of 2018, all campers will be required to bring their own lunch on Friday and Saturday. The camp will host a BBQ on the last day of camp provided by us. We will continue to provided water and Gatorade for all meals and breaks.
Will this be a full contact camp?
Yes, our Portland, OR camp will be a full contact camp so helmets and pads are required. Our camps in other areas of the country are non-contact camps (per state law) so campers only need shirts, shorts and/or football pants, turf shoes and helmets.
