The University of Michigan residence hall, South Quadranglewill be the home of the resident campers. During evenings in South Quad, campers will be supervised by University Conference Services (UCS) staff. Camp coaching staff does not remain in the residence hall overnight. UCS housing staff typically schedules various activities for campers in the evening hours and will supervise on-site. 

The summer camp housing team assigns all campers to double rooms. Single rooms are not available to campers. If campers would like to room together, the best way to facilitate that request is for campers to arrive at registration together on Sunday, July 17th. Click here for more information on preparing for the overnight stay.
