Camps and clinics are a critical component of the overall development of your advancement and officiating career. There are many camps from which to chose over the United States. These training opportunities allow you to received instruction from some of the world‘s greatest football officials. They also allow you to network and build relationships with those same officials. Some are expensive some take several days to complete. Some are better some are worse. So how do you find the right camp?
Overnight summer camp is also known as a sleepaway camp when campers spend their nights at the camp; some camps do allow both daytime and overnight campers. Beyond the traditional sports - baseball softball basketball soccer tennis football and more - there are camps for outdoor enthusiasts that can offer horseback riding hiking camping fishing and even rappelling. There are overnight summer camps that are co-ed camps boy‘s camps girl‘s camps or brother-sister camps where boys and girls may have separate venues and activities.
There may also be special guidelines such as a one-piece swimsuit for girls no speedos for the boys etc. I remember one youth pastor telling the youth to place their swimsuit on the stove-top burner and if it doesn‘t cover it completely just turn on the burner and go buy something more modest. If the summer youth camp offers crafting opportunities you may want to send along some clothes that are not new. Painting and crafts can be messy and are not the easiest thing to remove from clothes. Also don‘t forget rain gear. Summer youth camps don‘t curtail every activity just because it may be raining.
Will you receive written evaluations of field work? Written critiques should be very helpful to identify some of your strong and weak points. Most often camp instructors will see some small intangible need for you to improve upon that you may not have known. They will also provide excellent insight and advice on what to expect at the higher levels giving you a clear path on what you need to address as you seek advancement.
