Camp Facilities


Arrive at the Assigned Dorm at the assigned time, per your last name. These assignments will be made as the camp dates get closer. Parking will be designated in pre-approved locations, to avoid citation by UAPD. Again TBD.

Once locations have been determined:

1. Parent and Camper will check-in at the dorm. Camper will check in with DRVBC Staff, and there receive t-shirt and meal card. This is where you will pay balance, if there is one due.

2. Camper will then check-in with dorm staff, and receive their key and direction to dorm. Please then retreat to your dorm, dress for camp, and get settled. Please report to the lobby at the requested time. UA players will escort groups of campers to the gym where the camp will start.
Camper will check themselves out, on the morning of the last day of camp. All bags will be walked over, by the camper, to and stored in the gym for the last session. It is advised that the camper pack up their belongings the night before as to streamline their morning departure.


If you are bringing a car to camp, as a camper, not the parent dropping and picking up, you are responsible for obtaining your own parking pass.  Parking for pick up and drop off will be assigned as the camp gets closer.

For parking permits, please call 520-621-3710.


Residents receive a meal card, as part of their camp tuition. This debit-style card can be used at all of the restaurants in the student union, this is where all meals will be purchased and eaten. Meal cards are available for purchase for the commuter campers, but be advised there is no advantage to the camper using a card versus cash, or packing a lunch and dinner from home. There are no refunds on unused monies left on the meal cards.

There is a camp store located in the dorm for the residents, run by some of the coaches, that will have slices of pizza, bottles of water, etc. In order to purchase items here, campers will need their own cash, as the meal cards cannot be used there.


If your camper is flying to Tucson, we are happy to pick them up at the airport. It is about a 15 minute drive from the airport to the University. If you are intending us to pick up your camper, please forward the email itinerary to davidrubiovolleyballcamp@gmail.com as soon as you have it, so we can plan accordingly. Please request confirmation that it was received, so no one gets missed.

  • There are two campers per room, per design and fire code.
  • Camper roommates must be of the same gender. No exceptions.
  • The same sexed camp coaches are distributed evenly among the campers in the dorm. One dorm coach, per every 10 campers. Per dorm regulations.
  • Boys and girls are separated on different wings and different floors.
  • Parents are NOT allowed to enter the dorm, unless accompanied by their minor, or camp staff. No exceptions.
  • Please be advised that the dorms temperature is not the same as home. 75-78 degrees is not uncommon in the dorm. Depending on the dorm we are assigned, the air conditioning could be super cold, or cold enough. Campers are allowed to bring fans. If you keep your home 68-70 degrees your camper is going to feel hot. Warn them.

Parents are allowed to watch any and all sessions of camp. Sessions in McKale are the easiest to watch because of the ample seating. Watching in Richard Jefferson Gym, offers no seating, so feel free to bring a beach chair and you can watch from the loft area. Parents are not allowed on the floor. We recommend the parent ask the camper where they will be at any given time as they will know. Please know who their coach is, as that will always help us find your camper faster.

All coaches are back ground checked.

All campers are escorted to and from the student union for meals, and to and from the dorms. Campers are divided up into specific groups that each coach is responsible for.

You can call or text Amanda Rubio at any time, as I can answer most of the questions, or get you your answers shortly. 520-818-8668
