Advanced Kids Camp FAQ

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

My child is attending camp with his/her friends, can they be put in the same group and on the same team? 
Coming to camp with friends is encouraged and no problem. Coaches will allow campers to team with a maximum number of friends, so have your son/daughter stay with his/her friends when making teams. FYI, campers are grouped by age, ability, and prior experience.

For the games do the campers pitch to other campers?
No, each team’s coach pitches to his own team. We want the ball to be put into play so that the defense has to handle the ball and figure out what to do with it depending on the number of outs and where the baseball runners are. No one strikes out. During a one-week camp, most campers will handle the ball as much as they have handled in a full Little League season.

Is lunch provided during camp?
Lunch is not included in the purchase of Stanford Baseball camp. If you would like to purchase lunch at camp, this can be done the week leading up to camp or at check-in the day of camp. As camp gets closer, you will receive an email with specific instructions on how to arrange for and pay lunch in advance.

Does my child need to bring a bat to camp?
You can bring your own bat if you wish but we provide bats and helmets wherever they are needed. Please make sure that your child's glove, bat, batting glove, hat, helmet, etc. are marked with his name. Kids this age tend to misplace their equipment and it is so much easier to find it if we have a name on the item.

What time will check-in be open?
Camp begins at 9:00am and ends at 4:00pm each day of camp. Campers will be required to check-in daily at the main entrance to Stanford Baseball’s Sunken Diamond. Check-in will be open starting at 8:00am every day of camp.

Do I need to fill any insurance information?
Yes. Stanford University requires us to have proof of insurance on file for every camper. Each camper must have a completed and signed Medical Wavier Form in order to attend camp. If you register for camp online, the Medical Wavier Form can be completed online as well. If you are mailing in a registration form, you will receive a printable version of the Medical Wavier Form when you receive your registration confirmation email. Insurance information provided on the Medical Waiver Form MUST be accurate. All campers must have their own medical insurance. 
 
What happens if my child gets sick or hurt?
There will be a certified athletic trainer at Sunken Diamond at all times to attend to care for minor injuries and illness. If a camper gets sick or injured while at camp, they will assess the situation and make the decision of what needs to be done. Parents or guardians will be contacted immediately if there is a serious injury or if a camper needs to leave camp early for a medical reason. Please make a notation on the medical portion of your registration if there is any medical condition we should be aware of in advance of the camper’s attendance at camp. Our athletic trainer will be available for questions on the first day of each camp and throughout the week.

When I pick-up my child from camp can they just meet me at my parked car?
There is only one way in and one way out of Sunken Diamond for baseball camp. That entrance gate is manned at check-in and check-out every day of camp. No child will be allowed to leave, until we know with whom they are leaving. Any alternate pick-up arrangements must be requested in writing by a parent or guardian. 

Because I work can I pick my child up late?  
We understand that campers may not be able to be picked up at 4:00pm each day following camp.  Extended Care will be open from 4:00pm-6:00pm each day of camp and the cost is $20 per day.  As camp gets closer you will receive instructions on how to schedule and pay for extended care in advance.  You can also arrange and pay for extended care during check-in each day of camp.

The parking lot outside of Sunken Diamond is a C sticker parking lot, will I get a parking ticket if I park in that lot?
On the first day of camp, you can pick up a special parking pass (to be placed on your dashboard) that will allow you to park in the C sticker parking lot outside of Sunken Diamond from 8:30am-9:00am and again from 3:30pm-4:30pm each day of camp. Each parking pass is good for that entire week of camp. 

Are there any discounts or scholarships?
Due to NCAA rules, we cannot offer any discounts or scholarships to the general public. 

Can parents stay and watch camp?
Yes! Parents are welcome to come watch any and all days of camp. 

If I have to cancel what is the refund policy?
Refunds are no problem. Kids get sick, vacations come up, and unfortunately, you may need to cancel. Please contact the Stanford Baseball Office at baseballoffice@stanford.edu to request a cancellation in writing. Refunds are available until 5:00pm the Friday before camp. There is a $75 cancellation fee. Registration fees from Active (our online registration company) will not be refunded. 

What are the Tax ID Numbers associated with the Stanford Baseball Camps?
Stanford’s Federal Tax ID # is 94-1156365. The University is tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the IRS code.
