Overnight Campers will be housed in Manzanita Hall, an ASU dorm that is located approximately half a mile away from The Mona Plummer Aquatic Complex. The dorm rooms are configured as 2 double-bedrooms with a suite-style bathroom. Overnight Campers will have one roommate and share a bathroom with the adjoining suite. Additionally, each dorm room is equipped with a microfridge.
Female campers will be housed together, and male campers will be housed together. For everyone's safety, camp counselors will stay in separate suites during the overnight summer camps. All camp counselors are part of the Bob Bowman Sun Devil Swim Camps coaching staff and have cleared an extensive background check.
Overnight Campers will have access to the lounges and communal areas of the dorm to relax. These areas are equipped with TVs for the campers to use. In addition, Overnight Campers will have access to Manzanita Hall's Wifi Guest Network throughout the building.
Each Overnight Camper will receive a linen package upon arrival, which consists of 1 pillow, 1 blanket, 1 pillowcase, 1 flat sheet, 1 fitted sheet, 1 bath towel, and 1 wash cloth. Overnight Campers will also receive an access card to Manzanita and a key to their assigned dorm room. Please keep in mind that there will be fees for damaged/lost linens and lost access cards and/or keys. Following the conclusion of camp, the ASU dorm staff will inspect each room for any damages; Overnight Campers will be financially responsible for any damages to the dorm during their stay.
The Overnight Campers will be served breakfast, lunch, and dinner at Tooker House Dining Hall, an on-campus dining hall that is located between Manzanita Hall and the pool. In addition, Overnight Campers may bring personal snacks and drinks to keep in their dorm rooms.
During the registration process on Eventbrite, Overnight Campers may request two potential roommates. We will make every effort to accommodate roommate preferences; however, we cannot guarantee these requests. Overnight Campers who do not list roommate requests during registration will be paired with another Overnight Camper of the same sex and similar age.
