Camp McCall develops team and club unity within our U11 through U15 competitive teams at the onset of the new season, gets our feet back on the ball, gets our head back in the game, and gives us a chance to meet and bond with new teammates and have FUN! Although soccer is the main event, we will also swim, hike and canoe as the camp is on Payette Lake. The camp is rustic but the food and the setting is great. Soccer includes some fitness (i.e. "The Run"), technical training, 11v11 training games, and a 4v4 tournament with championship on the final day of camp. Parents are welcome to watch the full team scrimmages on the second evening of camp and the 4v4 tournament on the final day of camp.

What does the fee include?
The fee covers all meals starting the first evening with dinner through final day lunch. Parents may join their players for the final day's lunch for a minimal charge if reserved ahead. Also included is lodging and use of all facilities, including the waterfront at the Pilgrim Cove Camp. (A lifeguard will be provided.) The sleeping accommodations are dormitory style in multiple cabins and each team will provide a parent chaperone(s) for each cabin.
What to bring
What not to bring
Like so much of what we do in soccer, we will need volunteers. We will need one adult chaperone for every 4-6 players. Chaperones will sleep and eat (at no charge) with the players. They will be asked to shuttle kids between the Pilgrim Cove Camp in McCall and the soccer fields in Donnelly. Coaches will manage the schedule from 8 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. Chaperones will manage the schedule from 5:30 p.m. until 8 a.m. (dinner to dawn). Chaperones will collect and manage all snacks and medications. Free times will likely focus around the waterfront but chaperones may plan those activities with team- and spirit-building in mind. Returning chaperones will help the "newbies". It says a lot that we have many returning chaperones each year. It's not just the players that have fun!
Travel to and from the camp is the responsibility of each player. Teams are encouraged to car pool. Be sure to inventory that everyone has all necessary gear BEFORE leaving Boise. Car pools should plan to leave Boise no later than 1:30 p.m. and should be home no later than 5:30 p.m.
Individuals should check in no later than 4 p.m. and be assembled by teams at 4:30 p.m. The rally location will be provided at check-in.
