Where do we check in?

Camp check-in is on the Tempe campus* between the BA and BAC buildings on the Dean’s Patio just north of Lemon Street. Parking is extremely limited, so please plan on being dropped off as there is no overnight parking in the Apache structure and student parking permits for fall are not yet active.

*Session 8 check-in for Polytechnic campus Campers is on the Polytechnic campus near Century Hall.

Is transportation to Camp Carey provided?

Yes! Roundtrip transportation is provided to and from the Tempe campus for all Camps. Campers who are attending Session 8 from the Polytechnic and West campuses are provided with roundtrip transportation from their home campus.

What are the accommodations?

Campers stay in 14-person, same-sex cabins with trained Camp Carey facilitators who are upper-class W. P. Carey students. Facilitators lead Campers though an array of fun, interactive experiences throughout their time at Camp. Roommate requests will not be accommodated.

Why can’t I request a roommate?

One of the many benefits of Camp Carey is growing your personal network and meeting a lot of new people in a fun, relaxed atmosphere. You and a friend can attend Camp Carey together and you will see each other throughout Camp. Remember, the goal of Camp Carey is to get to know fellow students and the more people you meet the more you’ll enjoy Camp and your W. P. Carey academic experience!

Are there indoor restrooms?

Of course! There are indoor restrooms and shower facilities at Camp Carey. They are a short walk from the cabins.

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.
