Duke Men's Winter ID Camp

Overview

*For Boys Only - Open to 8th graders and above* The goals of our camp are really quite simple. We want each of our students to learn new skills and improve those they already have, to learn how to train themselves on their own after they leave camp, and to learn how to make the best of their newly found skills with every team on which they play. We have developed an outstanding curriculum and hired and trained the best staff possible to clearly present it. Combine this with great competition and you get results not possible anywhere else.

A Health Form MUST be filled out, signed, and turned in before your son can participate in the camp. You can bring it to registration, email, or fax to ATTN: John Kerr, 919-681-2378.

Transportation

Your son will need to take an Uber or a taxi to the hotel upon arrival. Below is some helpful information about taxis.

Because taxis are limited in Durham, you need to CALL by telephone ahead of time to arrange your travel. A meter, starting with an initial fee of $3.60 and then $2.00 per mile after that, calculates the taxi fare. Airport taxis/shuttles generally charge a set fare from Durham to the airport, around $40 one-way from an off-campus apartment. Nowadays almost all companies accept major credit cards. Whenever you use a taxi or shuttle, you tip the driver 10-15% of the cost of the fare. We also recommend taking a taxi with a friend so you can split the fare.
