Keystone State FAQ

Q: How do I apply for an Individual Talent Camp?

A: Click on our Printable Application, print and fill it out, and mail it with a check or money order to Keystone State Camp, 7 Hemlock Rd, Williamsport, PA 17701.

Q: How much does camp cost?

A: Individual Talent Camps $410 per player per 4-day session, if paid in full by June 1st. After June 1st, there is a $25 per player increase in cost. This includes room and board. No personal checks will be accepted after June 1st or at registration; only cash, money orders or cashier’s checks. To reserve a space at camp, your application must be accompanied by at least a $75 deposit. For a player attending two sessions, there is a discount of $50 on the second session attended. For commuter rates, see below. For Team Camp rates, see our Team Camps pages.

Q: Can I share a room with my friend at camp?

A: Sure! Just put your friend’s name in the “Roommate Preference” space on the application and have your friend put your name on his/hers. We make every attempt to accommodate all roommate requests, however, roommate requests made near the date of camp are not guaranteed.

Q: Can more than two campers room together?

A: At Edinboro University & Slippery Rock University, there are a limited number of 4-person rooms. At other sites, by special request, campers may stay 3-to-a-room if one camper brings an air mattress or sleeping bag. Alternatively, in the “Roommate Preference” space on the application, in addition to your roommate, you may request campers you would like to be housed near, and if there are more than 2 campers from the same school, we will generally house them near each other automatically.

Q: What if I don't have anyone to request as a roommate?

A: No problem! Campers who do not request a roommate will be placed with someone in their own age-group. This is an opportunity to make a new friend! Players will also have several teammates who they will be interacting with all week. This is not a reason to be worried – meeting new people can be the best part of camp.

Q: Can I commute to camp?

A: Players who live close to the camp site and prefer not to stay in the dorms can commute to camp from home. The commuter rate is $340 per player per 4-day session, if paid in full by June 1st. After June 1st, there is a $25 per player increase in cost. This includes lunch & dinner daily.

Q: How do I get to camp?

A: For directions, see our Venues page. Directions will also be included with your confirmation which will be mailed to you once we receive your application. Players are responsible for their own transportation to and from camp. If you need a ride, you can email us and we can reply with a list of campers from your area and their contact info so that you may be able to arrange a car-pool.

Q: What do I bring to camp?

A: See the list of Necessary Items at the bottom of our Talent Camps page. This information will also be included in your confirmation which will be mailed to you once we receive your application.

Q: Are the dormitories air-conditioned?

A: The dormitories at Bloomsburg University are not air-conditioned, so campers attending there should bring a fan. At all of our other sites, the dorms are air-conditioned.

Q: Are there refrigerators in the dorm rooms?

A: There are refrigerators in the dorm rooms at Slippery Rock University. Bloomsburg University and Edinboro University do not have refrigerators. Campers may want to bring a cooler.

Q: Are the dorms supervised?

A: Absolutely! We hire a responsible full-time staff who arrive at camp before the campers and are there 24 hours per day. Our staff live in the residence halls and eat in the cafeteria along with the players. There is a minimum of one staff member for every six campers.

Q: Who is the camp staff?

A: The Keystone staff is made up of college and high school coaches and college players, many of whom have been All-Stars at camp before. For information on some of our camp directors, see our Staff page.

Q: Will there be an athletic trainer on site?

A: Yes, there is at least one athletic trainer on duty during all competitions. If the injury requires treatment beyond the trainers’ abilities, the player will be taken to a nearby hospital.

Q: Are parents allowed to watch?

A: Parents of campers are allowed to stay as long as they want and they can drop by at any time during the week. There will be an All-Star Game and Awards Ceremony the last day which parents are encouraged to attend.

Q: Will there be any college coaches at camp?

A: YES! Division I college coaches are only allowed to attend camps that are certified by the NCAA. Division II and Division III coaches will also attend. In addition to many college coaches, there will be several scouting services at camp. During your time at camp, you will be given a questionaire to complete with more detailed information (SAT scores, statistics, etc) that will be made available to the college scouts. You will also be issued a numbered, reversible competition jersey, which will make it easier for college coaches and scouting services to identify and evaluate the players at KS#1.

Q: Who ranks Keystone State number one?

A: National scouting services including New York City’s Jim Martin’s Scouting Report, the National Recruiter out of Boston, MA, Middle Atlantic Scouting Service from Washington DC, and world wide web services such as Google, MSN, and Yahoo out of roughly 277,000 search results.
