What makes a Red Bulls Residential Camp unique and what can I expect from a Red Bulls Residential Camp?

New York Red Bull soccer camps are premium camps hosted throughout New York and New Jersey that are operated directly by a professional soccer team. Red Bulls curriculum and development philosophy, supported by the international Red Bulls soccer development family, make Red Bulls camps the best option for soccer players in the New York/New Jersey metro area.

Key highlights of New York Red Bulls Youth Programs

  • The benchmark for player development in the US
  • Player Development Pathway to the professional team
  • Comprehensive curriculum specifically designed by professional soccer experts
  • Each camp meets local Department of Health Standards and includes a Camp Director and Health Director onsite at all times.

New York Red Bulls philosophy is to “Create a fun and challenging environment where players have the opportunity to learn.” Our Residential Camp programs are designed with the New York Red Bulls “Building Blocks of Player Development”. Within each building block, an extensive curriculum is offered. Included with a camper’s completion of each camp is the opportunity to attend a Red Bulls home game through our Match Day Experience program.

Do I need to check in on the first day of camp?

Yes, check in will take place at the front of dorms. Signs will guide you to the appropriate parking area and check-in area. A campus map is included in your welcome packet. The check in schedule is as follows:

  • 1pm to 3pm – Rolling player arrival and check-in
  • 3:30pm to 4:30pm – Player Orientation and Campus Tour
  • 5pm to 6pm – Dinner
  • 6pm to 8:00pm – Opening Tournament

Players should eat lunch before arriving as dinner is not until 5pm. Once you have dropped off your child you are free to leave. Due to the staggering check in times, parents are not expected to stay for the opening address.

Is there a set check-out location and procedure?

Yes, check-out takes place following the tournament and graduation on the final day of camp. The players’ belongings will be packed and ready for departure prior to the beginning of the tournament. The final day’s schedule is as follows:

  • 9:00am – 11:30am Training/Favorite Games
  • 12:00pm – 1:00pm Lunch
  • 1:30pm – 3:30pm Tournament
  • 3:30pm – 4:30pm Graduation
  • 4:30pm – 5pm Check-out and pick up.

Parents must meet with the Health Director if their child sustained an injury or illness while on camp.

Parents are invited to come and watch the tournament play on the final day. Following the tournament and graduation, which will take place at the field, the players, STILL WITH THEIR GROUPS, will proceed back to the dorms to gather their bags. Upon gathering their belongings they should proceed to the check-out tent with their parent/guardian(s) to officially check out from the camp.

What if I need to check in my child late?

It is important that players check in on the first day of camp. A required camp orientation is conducted on the first day shortly after check-in. If you are not able to arrive on the first day of camp for check in, please call our office at 1.888.370.7287

What do I do if I need to pick up my child early?

We expect all players to attend all sessions through the last day of camp. This provides the highest quality experience for every player on camp and in the training group.

We understand there may be unavoidable circumstances and it would be necessary to check out your child before the last day. If a player needs to be picked up early please notify the Camp Director at check-in and provide a note stating such. If it is an unscheduled pick up you can always call 888.370.7287. Additionally, a specific contact list with contact numbers directly to personnel on site will be provided to the parent or guardian checking in the player on the first day of camp.

What if I need someone other than myself to pick my child up at check-out?

Please provide a signed note with the full name of the person you authorize to pick up your child at check-in. If the change occurs during the camp week please contact the personnel listed on the camp specific FAQ and notify them of the change. Those individuals picking up the player will need to bring identification.

Please be aware that our staff will not allow any child to be picked up by someone that the child does not recognize. If there is someone or people NOT permitted to pick your child up, please contact our office at 1.888.370.7287 to request the required form to complete. This form must be given to the Camp Director at check in. 

How are players grouped at Residential Camp?

Players are grouped based on both age and ability levels. Group allocation is reviewed at the end of each camp day and players may be moved accordingly to ensure they are in the correct development environment and constantly being challenged.

How do I choose a roommate?

  • Log into your member account at: https://www.rbnytraining.com/member-login.asp
  • Click on My Programs in the top left-hand corner
  • You will see any camps that need a room-mate request completing
  • Click on the red INCOMPLETE button under the roommate form heading
  • This allows you to request up to 3 room-mates, in order of preference
  • The form also allows you to provide additional information should it be required
  • If unsure, you may Save Progress, and return to complete it at a later date
  • Once you are happy with your selection, click Complete
  • You will know you have submitted your request successfully, as the button will turn green, and say COMPLETED
  • Even if your child has no roommate requests, it is important to complete the form accordingly
  • This function locks down 7 days in advance of camp, after which no further changes are permitted

Are players supervised at all times?

Absolutely. On and off the field camper health and safety is our number one priority. We follow a strict safety policy that ensures that there is always an adequate number of camper supervisors at all times. We also ensure that each camper is always checked in and signed out of camp by an approved adult.

What are the supervision arrangements at the dorm?

Red Bull coaches are housed on each floor of each dorm. The players will be shown where the coach’s rooms are located and they will be clearly marked so that they can be easily located by any player needing them. Boys and girls are in separate dorms, with male coaches in the boys’ dorms and female coaches in the girls’ dorms. In addition to our staff, each location has its own campus security which is available 24 hours a day.

What will happen in cases of injury or illness?

At all of our Residential Camps, the Camp Director holds an American Red Cross certificate in responding to emergencies and CPR for professional rescuers. There will also be a qualified athletic trainer or EMT present during the week to provide on-field treatment. However, the usual course of action once any serious injury is stabilized, is to contact the parents and, if necessary, the local emergency services. In the registration process, we also ask important medical-related questions so that we are always aware of any pre-existing injury or illness.

Do I need to bring my child’s immunization records to Residential Camp?

Yes. For all 5 day or longer camp programs, State Health and Safety regulations require that your child is up to date with age appropriate vaccinations as listed below. Campers who aren’t vaccinated won’t be permitted on camp unless there is a bona fide medical or religious exception (see below for information specific to Mercy College).

  • Vacations requirements to attend Camp:
  • Diphtheria/Tetanus
  • Haemophilus Influenza type B
  • Hepatitis B
  • Measles, mumps, rubella (MMR)
  • Poliomyelitis
  • Varicella (chicken pox)

Following online registration, you will be directed to complete an online immunization record or attestation for religious or medical waivers. If you are attending multiple camp weeks only one completed form is required for the camp season.

For more information on state vaccination requirements visit:

MERCY COLLEGE - Immunization Records

To be eligible to attend the Red Bulls - Mercy College residential summer camp this year, you will need to provide documentation noting one of the following circumstances related to your child’s immunization.

Medical forms (must be printed and submitted at check-in):

  1. Prescription and over-the-counter medication form: PRINT AND SUBMIT AT CHECK-IN
  • If your child will be taking medication while at camp, it is state law to secure your consent for medication distribution and for the use of medical devices. 
  • In addition to your consent, the prescribing physician must provide a sign-off on all medications, including over-the-counter medications, to be used at camp. Campers are not allowed to hold onto medication while at camp. 
  • All medications must be submitted with this accompanying document to the Health Director of the camp for proper storage and administration. 
  • Prescription medications must be in their original containers bearing the pharmacy label and have specific instructions for use (child’s name, dosage, # pills inside, prescribing practitioner, pharmacy name & address, filler's initials, serial #).

  1. Initial Health screening form: PRINT AND SUBMIT AT CHECK-IN

  1. Online account: Parents can log into their registration account, select "Participants and Immunization Forms" and complete the immunization form online. This method is the most convenient and removes the need to submit a hard copy of the immunization record at camp check-in.

Click here to log in to your account and complete or update your child’s immunization form.

If you have any additional questions that are not covered here, please save them for the virtual orientation four days ahead of camp. 

Otherwise, we look forward to seeing you all at check-in.

What if my child needs to bring medication to an overnight camp?

If your child will be taking medication while at an overnight camp, the prescribing physician must provide sign off on all medications, including over-the-counter medications. Campers are NOT ALLOWED to hold onto medication while at camp. ALL medications must be submitted to the Health Director of the camp for proper storage and administration. If your child is found in possession of medication, either prescription or over-the-counter medication, parents will be called for immediate pick up from camp. At camp check-in, ALL prescription and over-the-counter medications along with a completed MEDICATION form must be submitted to the Health Director (A medication form will be emailed to you following registration). Prescription medications must be in their original containers bearing the pharmacy label and have specific instructions for use (Child’s name, dosage, # pills inside, prescribing practitioner, pharmacy name & address, filler's initials, serial #).

Important: Due to Department of Health Regulations, “as needed” medication must include a dosage and frequency and will only be given “as needed” with parental approval which will be obtained via a phone call. If the parent does not provide approval, the camper will not be permitted to take the medication.

A self-administration process is used on overnight camps. Self-administration of medications will only be allowed for those individuals determined to be "self-directed". Determination as to whether or not a camper should be considered for self-administration will be conducted by the Health Director or designee and will be based on the camper's ability to correctly identify the medication, dosage and reason for need. Additionally, we do not keep supplies of over the counter medication at camp.

Does each Residential Camp location cater for special dietary needs?

The menu flexibility varies at each location. Our goal at every facility is to offer a healthy and varied food option, there are times however when we the host facility can’t accommodate all special dietary needs. To view each facility's ability to accommodate special dietary needs, please read the location specific information pack, a link can be found at the bottom of this page.

If the dietary need isn’t addressed, prior to registering for any residential camp location, please contact our office to see if the dietary request can be accommodated. Call: 1-888-370-7287 or email training@newyorkredbulls.com. Additionally and where available, weekly menus for each location will be included in the pre camp information pack. 

What happens if there is inclement weather?

As with all of our camps if it is just rain, we play! However, if the weather presents a safety concern on the field, there are opportunities for indoor activities. The common areas will be set up for usage during potential rain delays with cards, quizzes, games, and other activities.

Facility amenities vary depending on location. As available, a gym space may be used to continue training sessions. Indoor shoes or sneakers are required for most gym floors. Please pack accordingly. Additional facility information can be found on the facility-specific FAQ page here. The health and safety of our players remains our number one concern.

What happens if there is extreme heat?

The Camp Director is responsible for monitoring the weather forecast daily. If the heat index rises to extreme or dangerous levels the camp day will be adjusted accordingly. There are a number of possible activities that the players will have the opportunity to partake in at our Residential Camps that will allow them to safely avoid the heat yet still be engaged. As stated previously, the health and safety of our players remains our number one concern.

How can my child contact me / I contact my child throughout the week?

If your child has a cell phone they may use it only in their rooms. We do not allow players to carry their phones around campus with them. You will also have the cell phone number of Training Program Manager, and an on-site supervisor, who you can contact in an emergency.

Are the parents allowed to come and watch during the week?

The only time parents may attend to watch sessions, is the morning training session, from 9:00am - 11:30am. No visits are allowed outside these hours. We no longer allow parents to attend the evening sessions, as if we have a young player who is homesick, seeing their parents in the evening (closer to bed-time) exacerbates the problem further.

The more you allow your child to immerse themselves in the soccer environment, the more they will enjoy the experience. Although we encourage our players to call home periodically, calling them several times a day is entirely counter-productive. Quite often, a text message is better. Please bear this in mind when communicating with your child. For child protection reasons, when visiting, parents are not allowed to enter the dormitories. If you are bringing extra clothing / equipment for players, please meet them outside the dorms.

What non-soccer activities are available throughout the week?

Time is allocated each day for players to spend time socializing with other campers, and to spend time engaged in other activities. Each camp has a common room, with a television and video games. Team activities will be prepared throughout the week, featuring activities such as quiz nights, Red Bulls viewing parties, and other team competitions.

Will swimming be offered at overnight camp locations?

Some overnight camp locations have access to a swimming pool which we are able to use. The school/location makes the decisions on whether pools are available for use during our week on-site. If we are able to use the pool facility, parental permission is required for all swimming activities and will be asked during the online registration process. Additionally, all campers that are given parental permission for swimming will be required to take a swim test as administered by the facilities Aquatics Director or Progressive Swim Instructor. Following the swim test, campers will be classified as swimmers or non-swimmers, only swimmers will be allowed in the pool area.

What clothing should my child wear at a Residential Camp?

A complete recommended packing list is included in each facility welcome pack. In general, players should be able to make one set of soccer clothing work per day. However, please have your player prepared for up to one full charge per day in case of inclement weather. In addition, players should also pack casual clothes for rest and non-soccer activities.

What should my child refrain from bringing to Residential Camp?

Please be sure that your player refrains from bringing the following items:

  • Expensive or cherished items (jewelry, clothing, etc.)
  • Unnecessary electronics (iPads, laptops, handheld game systems, etc.)
  • Refrigerators, air conditioners, or other large electronics / small appliances
  • Extension cords (surge protectors are allowed but must have a trip switch)

Yes, limited food is allowed in the dorms. However, the food must be in sealed containers and be nonperishable. There is no refrigeration available.

Do the dorms have air conditioning?

Some overnight camp locations have air conditioning, please review the Facility-Specific FAQ Page.

Will bedding be provided and if not, what should I bring?

The dorm room will be furnished with a twin-sized bed and mattress. Linens are not provided nor are laundry services available. Please be sure to pack a fitted sheet, a bed sheet, a pillowcase, and a warm blanket.

How much money should my child bring for the week?

Approximately $25-$30 (in small bills) for the week should be plenty. Players must keep money in their rooms but are responsible for it themselves. We strongly advise not bringing more money than is necessary. Please do not bring other valuable items to camp as New York Red Bulls are not responsible for the loss of any personal belongings. iPhones / iPads / other portable electronic devices are brought entirely at your own risk.

What is the cancellation policy after payment has been made?

If you need to cancel your registration, a refund can be processed up to 14 days prior to the camp start date (minus a $60 administration fee). No refunds will be processed within 14 days of the camp start. If you learn you cannot attend a program within 14 days of the start date, we will work with you to find another complementary program that works for your family.

Team camp:

What is the minimum number of required players to schedule a team camp?
