Frequently Asked Questions
The following are some frequently asked questions regarding our camp program. If you cannot find the answer to your question or would like to speak with someone in more detail, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call at (404) 364-7942.
What are the camp hours?
Camp runs from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Optional extended day programs are available before and after camp beginning at 7:30 a.m. and running until 6:00 p.m.
What does my camper need to bring to camp?
An Atlanta Falcons Summer Camps uniform (jersey and socks) will be provided to each camper on the first day of camp.
Everything brought to camp should be labeled with your camper's first initial and last name. Your camper should bring:
- Cleats and athletic shoes (please bring sneakers so that your camper is able to participate fully in indoor activities in the event of inclement weather)
- Sunscreen (spray sunscreen is recommended over lotion)
- Lunch in a lunch bag labeled clearly with your camper's name
- Water bottle to be refilled throughout the day (we provide plenty of water at all times)
What is the age range for campers?
All children between rising kindergarten and rising eighth grade are welcome at Atlanta Falcons Summer Camps.
Do campers need prior football experience?
We do not have ability or experience requirements; we welcome campers of all levels of experience - from first-time players to advanced players.
Do you separate children by grade?
Yes - all campers are separated into divisions based on their rising grade. Campers take part in drills and competitions within their division, to ensure the best possible competitive balance for a fun and developmental experience while at camp.
Can my camper be on the same team as his or her friend/teammate/sibling?
Yes! During our registration process, you can request that your camper is placed on the same team as his or her friends by creating a new Buddy Group or joining an existing Buddy Group.
Your camper may request up to three (3) teammates. We do our best to group your camper with at least one requested teammate provided that both teammates are members of the same rising grade.
Please note: we are unable to guarantee that your camper will be teamed with his or her requested friends, depending on age group and enrollment and team distribution.
What is the camper to counselor ratio at Atlanta Falcons Summer Camps?
We aim to provide an environment where campers are able to benefit from individual and small group learning and instruction. For our younger campers (6 and under), our goal is to maintain a camper to coach ratio of approximately 7:1 on their individual team. For older campers (7 and up), the approximate ratio is 9:1. For the site as a whole, the camper-to-coach ratio is 6:1 – including our Leadership Team, such as our Site Leader and Camp & Safety Coordinator.
Do you offer any discounts?
We offer a 10% sibling discount. This discount applies automatically at registration checkout when two or more campers are enrolled in the same family. Please note: the 10% sibling discount is only applied to the tuition of the additional sibling.
We also offer team discounts - please contact us at email@example.com for more information.
Do I receive a confirmation when I register?
Once you register and pay for your camp session(s), you will receive a confirmation email for your records. This email serves as your confirmation of registration for camp.
Will I receive additional information about camp after I register?
As we approach the summer, we'll be communicating via the email that you provide at registration with further details. Email communication goes through the primary account email address provided at registration - if you registered for camp and did not receive a confirmation email, please contact us.
The week before camp, we'll send out more detailed information about your camp session(s), including drop-off location and instructions, procedures for Monday morning, what to bring to camp, as well as friendly tips and reminders. In addition to this pre-camp information, you'll receive a handful of emails while your camper is with us during the week, including some details on what they're doing during the day.
What happens when a camper is enrolled on a waitlist?
When a camp session reaches capacity, we will move that session to a waitlist. Adding your camper's name to the waitlist for a session is free of charge and you will not need to provide credit card information at that time. Each year, some spots open up in sessions that have reached capacity as summer plans change. If a spot opens for your camper, we will contact you immediately via phone to confirm that you'd still like to enroll your camper in the session. At that time, we will take credit card information and enroll your camper(s) into camp.
Do you accept "walk-up" registrations?
We do not accept walk-up registrations. All registrations must be completed online prior to Monday before camp begins, if the camp program is not already sold out.
What are Atlanta Falcons Summer Camps policies on refunds, credits and transfers?
Please see our "Policies" page, which dictates our guidelines on credits and refunds.
THE CAMP WEEK
When will my camper(s) receive a uniform?
Campers will be provided an official Atlanta Falcons Summer Camps uniform on the first morning of their camp session. On the first day of the session, campers should arrive dressed as follows:
- Regular T-shirt (regular cotton or performance wear)
- Athletic shorts
- Shoes and/or cleats of choice
- Hat if desired for additional sun protection
For the first day of camp, campers will wear their Atlanta Falcons Summer Camps jersey with the shorts and socks they wear that morning. At the conclusion of Monday's camp day, campers will be sent home with their full Atlanta Falcons Summer Camps uniform – jersey and socks. For the remainder of the camp session, campers should wear their full Atlanta Falcons Summer Camps uniform each day.
Does my child need to wear his/her uniform every day?
Campers are expected to wear their Atlanta Falcons Summer Camps uniform each day of camp, with the exception of Monday, when they will just wear the jersey. An additional jersey ($40) is available for purchase during the registration process and can be purchased after registration is completed as well.
Do I need to pack a lunch for my camper(s) each day?
Yes. Please send your campers(s) to camp with a lunch bag labeled clearly with his or her name. If you pack anything that needs to be kept cool, please include an icepack in the lunch bag. We will keep all lunches in a cool area, but we do not refrigerate them. If your camper's lunch requires utensils, please include those in the lunch bag.
Does Atlanta Falcons Summer Camps provide sunscreen?
We encourage campers to bring their own sunscreen. However, we have sunscreen on-site if your camper(s) forgets or loses their own.
How do you handle inclement weather?
Our approach to inclement weather is subject to change, depending on factors including our camp facilities. In all events of inclement weather, we will proactively communicate our plan to enrolled families and will do everything in our control to host camp for your camper that day.
If we determine that the weather is too severe or the fields are too damp to play on for a particular day, camp cancellation for that day is a possibility. In the event of a weather-affected cancellation of a camp day, we will offer Atlanta Falcons Summer Camps credit in an amount commensurate to the missed day of camp.
What precautions do you take to handle the summer heat?
Our entire coaching staff is well aware that the summer heat can drain a camper throughout the day and week. Water is always available, and campers are required to take water breaks and sunscreen re-application breaks throughout the day. In extreme cases, we will seek indoor facilities to escape heat. Should this situation arise, we will send out a message prior to the start of camp with helpful instructions on what you can do to prepare your camper for a hot camp day, as well as information on what precautions we will be taking to combat the heat.
Can parents come watch the camp activities?
No. With our COVID-19 Protocols, parents/guardians must stay in vehicles for drop-off and pick-up and cannot remain on-site during the camp day.
Can Atlanta Falcons Summer Camps accommodate children with life-threatening allergies?
Yes. Families with children who have peanut, tree nut, or other life-threatening allergies can feel safe and comfortable at our summer camps. At the beginning of each camp day, our camp staff will take special note of children with life-threatening allergies by placing a mandatory, but inconspicuous, colored bracelet around the camper's wrist marked with the child's name for identification purposes (in case of Epi-Pen use, etc). During lunch and snack breaks, campers with food allergies will sit with our Camp & Safety Coordinator at our Nut-free & Allergen Alert Table. Parents will have the option to release their camper(s) from this table. If your camper is required to sit at the Nut-free & Allergen Alert Table, please keep in mind that their snack and lunch must be free of common food allergens (including tree nuts, peanuts, dairy, soy, and shellfish) to ensure a safe environment for other campers also required to sit at the table.
If your camper is bringing medication to camp (i.e. Epi-Pen), your camper's coach will have the medication on hand in a fanny pack at all times during camp. The medication will be checked in on Monday morning of camp with our Camp & Safety Coordinator and will be returned on Friday at check-out. These procedures and policies will be clearly communicated in advance of camp to campers who have indicated that they'll be bringing medication to camp.
