Resident Camper Check-In Times

Check-in times for all resident campers is 3:30-5:00 pm in the lobby of J-Mac. After checking in, all resident campers will have dinner at 5pm and will then proceed to Magness Arena for the weekly evaluation skate which starts at 7:15 pm.


Airport Pick-Up & Drop-Off

There is a $35 one-way, or $70 round-trip, airport shuttle fee for each player needing to arrange transportation through the USJDP either to, or from, the airport. These fees will go directly to the airport limo company to cover the costs for the private motor coach. All transportation requests must be in USJDP offices 2 weeks prior to arrival.

To arrange an airport pick-up and/or drop off, please send complete flight information including airline, arrival time, flight numbers, departure city of final leg of flight and your sons' cell phone number to USJDP Director Mike Gempeler.

As non-travelers are not allowed out to the gates to greet new arrivals, players will need to proceed to main terminal where an USJDP staff member clad in USJDP/CCM staff apparel will meet them at their assigned baggage claim. Players will then be escorted by USJDP Staff to the awaiting shuttle.

Payment for this service must be made prior to arrival at camp. Please send a check made out to Mike Gempeler for this service to our offices at the address listed above.

A note to our International Campers: Please send either a cashiers check or money order in US Dollars for these costs.


Arrival Times

On the day of your arrival, please arrive at Denver International Airport (DIA) no later than 3:00 pm, This is important as it allows us sufficient time to get the players to the University of Denver, checked into their rooms, and most importantly, fed before our evening skate. Players will travel by private coach via a professional limo company and be dropped off right in front of our assigned residence hall.

Also, please note that the Player Shuttle Van departs DIA at 3:00 pm as discussed above so it is advised to arrange flights as close to that time to avoid unnecessary waits at DIA. Additionally, due the stated 3:00 pm Player Shuttle departure time, USJDP staff will not arrive at DIA to meet players until after 11:00 am.


Departure Times

Departure times on your final day of camp should be AFTER 3:00 pm. This will allow each player to participate in the morning game, shower, get checked out of their dorm rooms, and to the airport by 2 pm, allowing for an hour check-in time at DIA.


Fans

Should a player need one, a limited number of fans will be available for check out at the front desk of J-Mac. These will be given out to all campers that fly in first, and to campers that drive in second. If you are driving to camp to stay as a resident camper, it is advised that you pack your own fan.
