Is there a room key deposit for overnight campers?

Yes. Dartmouth College requires a key deposit of $60. All campers staying in the dorm for camp must bring cash or a check made out to “Dartmouth College”. Peak FH will hold the cash/check until the key is returned at check-out.

Will I need a Parking Pass?

ALL vehicles driven to camp must be registered at check-in. Resident camper car keys must be turned in to the Camp Director and will be retained during camp. Commuter campers are permitted to drive to and from camp each day, but are not permitted to drive while at camp. Commuter campers are responsible for their own keys while on campus. Parking passes MUST be purchased for ALL cars (resident and commuter) parked on campus (COST=$10/day). Cash or check (payable to Peak FH Camp) are accepted to cover parking charges if you are a resident camper needing to park on campus, or you are a commuter camper driving yourself to and from camp each day. Parents dropping campers off daily will NOT need to purchase a parking pass.

Will there be a Certified Athletic Trainer at camp?

A certified athletic trainer will be present at registration to discuss any pre-existing concerns. An ATC will also be present at the field for each training session.

Where do we train while at camp?

All camp sessions will take place on artificial turf surfaces. Peak Field Hockey Camp utilizes all of Dartmouth's artificial turf surfaces.

I will be late to camp registration. I need to leave camp early. Is this OK?
