Start of Camp Registration

This takes place in Lund Center on the first day of camp.  Look for signs on campus that will direct you to Lund Center.

  • Resident camper registration runs 4:30-5:30pm
  • Daycampers may register between 5:15 and 5:45pm.
  • Everyone is to be on the floor at 6:00 pm.

During the registration process you will receive your team assignments, T-shirt, and dorm key. You will then be directed to the dorm to settle in.  Campers need not bring their luggage into Lund Center. You will move into the dorm after registering in Lund Center.


**There will not be a meal on the first day of camp. Go to Restaurants for area restaurants.


End of Camp Pick up

All sessions will conclude with a short ceremony beginning at 11:30am. Parents are welcome to observe camp prior to the ceremony. The camp store will be open before and after the ceremony.


Rooming Assignments

Resident campers can room with whomever they wish as long as they choose each other. We can have up to three people in a room.  All rooms are the same size, but we have a limited number of three person rooms.  You are be able to sign up for roommates via our Roommate Manager through the Registration Login link. All roommates must be registered in order to complete the roommate selection process.

*** The college charges $75 per lost key.  Each resident camper will be given a room key and is responsible for the return of that key. Lost keys are the responsibility of the camper. Lanyards help in not losing keys.  We have them for sale for $1 or you can bring your own.***


What to Bring

  • Basketball playing clothing including multiple pairs of socks
  • Water bottle
  • Every day clothes
  • Towels
  • A fan or portable air conditioner is a great idea
  • Swimsuit
  • Personal items
  • Spending money (evening pizza, Gustavus Bookmark, vending machines)
  • Electronics can be brought
  • Coolers or dorm sized refrigerators are allowed

Gustavus provides sheets, blankets, and pillows.


Absence from camp

It is expected that campers will be at all camp activities and sessions. If there are emergencies we will do whatever we can to facilitate departure from camp. Absences for non-emergency reasons must be arranged in advance with written parental permission for each camper absent. It is critical that we be aware of all absences, including departure and return times.



All cancellations, for any reason, will be assessed a minimum $100 processing fee. If the cancellation is made within two weeks of camp, except for injury, there is no refund. A camper departing camp early due to an injury will receive a prorated refund minus the $100 fee. No refunds are given for no-shows, homesickness or campers sent home for disciplinary reasons.


Camper Contact

If parents need to contact a camper, messages may be left at (507) 933-7037 or (507) 995-1484 (Camp Director's cell number). If there is an emergency after normal business hours, call the Gustavus Safety and Security department at (507) 933-8888 or the St. Peter Police Department at (507) 931-1550 and they will relay your message to us.

Camp Rules

If a camper does not abide by camp rules, which are explained on the first day of camp, that camper will be sent home with no refund. A telephone call will be made to parents explaining the situation. Fortunately, throughout the history of Gustie Basketball and Leadership Camp, this has happened rarely.
