The Columbus Crew Residential camp saw its most successful year in 2013 and we are excited about 2014! The camp is designed to educate and challenge soccer players with a Professional Team Experience that they are unable to get anywhere else in the region.

The Columbus Crew Curriculum is designed by the Columbus Crew technical staff and used at all levels of the Columbus Crew player development system. The curriculum provides technical and tactical development by age through proper understanding and the fundamentals needed for further development in the game. In addition, our instructors will touch on other areas of importance that will aide in their development such as nutrition and conditioning and provide the very best example of what it takes to be a quality soccer player, dependable teammate, and a good citizen.
From a training standpoint, the camp will include technical / tactical training, classroom lectures, speed and agility sessions, goalkeeper training, and unrestricted free play. Campers will be separated into training sessions by age and ability at the camp.
Campers will also have access to the Columbus Crew Training facility, Columbus Crew training sessions, Columbus Crew stadium, guest speakers, and more.

Camp Insurance

Athletic Trainer

Camp Bank
To eliminate the need to carry cash, the camp operates a “camp bank.” Campers are asked to deposit money (average $40) into the camp bank during check-in. Then, throughout the week, campers have the option of purchasing ice cold sports drinks, water, snacks, pizza (at night) and adidas Crew gear. The camp staff will record all purchases and tell campers their daily balance. At the conclusion of camp the balance is returned to the camper.
