Check-In Process: All Campers
Depending on your Session, camp check-in for Sessions 1 and 2 will take place on Sunday (June 8 or June 15) between the hours of 2:00-5:00pm (MDT) at the AFA Cadet Field House (2169 Field House Dr. USAFA, CO 80840). All traffic should enter through the North Gate of the Air Force Academy, exit 156 off I-25. Travel west on North Gate Blvd to the Cadet Field House (see map). Once you arrive at the Field House, please park in the east parking lot and proceed to the main entrance of the Cadet Field House. Proceed directly to your respective sport's table.
(Drive-In) Boarders: For "Drive-In" Boarders, you will be directed to place your bags outside the main entrance of the Field House. After check-in, boarders will be directed to an assigned bus that will transport campers to the dorm. For those Boarders driving their own vehicle, you will be asked to park in the Field House East parking lot on Check-In day. Boarders cannot use their vehicle until the end of camp.
(Airport) Boarders: If you are flying into Colorado Springs, we provide transportation to/from the Colorado Springs Airport only. Campers will not be met at their gate. (The Colorado Springs Airport is small and easy to navigate). We ask that you proceed downstairs to the AFA Sports Camps desk in the baggage claim area. From there, camp personnel will escort campers to a bus where they will then be transported to the Air Force Academy's Cadet Field House for check-in. After check-in, boarders are transported to the dormitory area.
All Boarders: Following camp Check-In on Sunday, boarders will begin the process of meeting their counselors. At approximately 5:00pm, boarders will be escorted to Mitchell Hall for dinner. Following dinner, a mandatory meeting for all boarders will be held at 6:30pm in Clune Arena (located inside the Cadet Field House). Camp security and safety rules will be addressed and any questions can be answered at this time. (Note: Failure to follow camp rules may result in immediate dismissal with no refund). After the safety meeting, boarders will take part in a camp pep rally. The rest of Sunday evening will also be dedicated to ensure all boarders meet their respective cadet counselor.
Further questions can be directed to the Sports Camp Office at (719) 333-2116.
Note: All bags are subject to search. Security measures prohibit parents from going to the dormitory.
"Day" Commuters: Commuter campers attending Session 1 or 2 will also check-in on Sunday (June 8 or June 15) between 2:00- 5:00pm at the AFA Cadet Field House. Camp starts promptly at 8:30am Monday morning. Commuters do have the options of checking in on Monday morning at 7:30am as well.
