Camp Carey FAQ
What are Camp Carey dates?
Dates for Camp Carey 2014 will be posted in February 2014.
Where is Camp Carey located?
Camp Carey is held at Camp Stein, just 90 minutes north of ASU’s Tempe campus near Prescott, AZ. Temperatures are typically 20 degrees cooler than in the Phoenix metro area. Transportation to and from Camp Carey – via motor coach – is provided.
How long does Camp Carey last?
Camp Carey is a 3-day, 2-night program. For all sessions, check-in begins at 2:45 pm on the first day. You will return to the ASU at approximately 1:30 pm on the last day.
What is the cost to attend?
The cost to attend Camp Carey is $100. This includes all transportation, meals, lodging, activities, a Camp Carey t-shirt, and all camp materials.
Students with documented financial need may apply for a fee waiver; request a fee waiver application by e-mailing CampCarey@asu.edu. To be eligible, a current FAFSA must be on file. Please allow one week for processing.
Is transportation to Camp Carey provided?
Yes! Roundtrip transportation is provided to and from the Tempe campus for all camps.
What are the accommodations?
Cabins at Camp Carey are mixed-gender. This means that both male and female students stay in the same 15-person cabin with their assigned groups. Two trained facilitators, who are W. P. Carey upper-class students, stay in cabins with their assigned camp groups.
Any student requesting same sex housing will be accommodated. Please indicate this request on the camp registration form.
Roommate requests will not be accommodated.
Are there indoor restrooms?
Of course! There are indoor restrooms and shower facilities at Camp Carey. They are a short walk from the cabins.
Can I request a roommate?
Unfortunately, roommate requests cannot be accommodated. One of the benefits of Camp Carey is that you get to meet a lot of new people in a fun, relaxed atmosphere. If you come to camp with a friend, you will see your friend throughout camp, but the goal is for you to get to know many, many more students. Remember, the more people you meet, the more fun you’ll have!
Will special needs (including dietary requests) be accommodated?
Yes, special needs should be indicated on the Camp Carey registration form. In addition, students with specific dietary restrictions (e.g., gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian), will be accommodated.
I live in northern Arizona. Can I meet the group at camp?
If you live in northern Arizona, you can arrange us to meet us at camp. Please send an e-mail to CampCarey@asu.edu. You must let us know at least one week prior to departure.
Where do we check in?
Camp check-in is on the Tempe campus*. Plan to arrive at the check-in location provided via email no later than 2:45pm. Please be prompt as buses will leave at 3:15, promptly! (Check your ASU e-mail for announcements and other updates about time/location.)
Tempe campus check-in is held on the Dean’s Patio between the BA and BAC buildings, just north of Lemon Street. It is best to be dropped off as parking is very limited in the visitor parking area.
* Check-in for West campus students on August 30 ONLY is at the West campus, just north of Casa del Oro in the parking lot near the credit union.
