How can I find the college on my GPS?
The college is located at 1 Brevard College Drive, Brevard, NC 28712.
Registration will be held in the Boshamer Gym.
Can I come to camp without insurance?
All campers must have medical insurance coverage to attend camp. If you do not have medical insurance coverage, you can come to camp only if your parents are willing to certify that they will be responsible for any and all medical charges incurred during camp.
What is the Co-Pay Amount?
This is the amount of money you would have to pay when you see a doctor – usually $25 to $50. You should have this amount of money with you, or have a check made out to “Hendersonville Pediatrics” in your wallet. We do not collect the co-pay, but you will be asked to pay it if you have to visit the local doctor.
How would I get to the doctor’s office?
Our nurse, a senior staff or your coach will accompany you to the doctor.
Who do I make my check out to?

Brevard, NC 28712
Did you get my balance?
Every camper receives a confirmation email at the time of registration. Please keep up with your original confirmation and send your balance by the deadline, pay it online or plan to bring it with you to camp. You can log into your account at any time to see your balance using this link: (http://campsself.active.com/BrevardDistanceRunningCamp)
Your log-in will be your email address and the password will be the password you chose when you registered.
Please do not call camp concerning your balance.
How and when can I pay my balance?
A $100 deposit is required when registering online. If you prefer to pay by credit card, you may do so by logging back online at any time (cut off is 1 week before session starts). The balance can also be paid by check or cash to save the additional $25 in credit card fees (subtract the credit card fees before sending a check). If you prefer to pay by personal check, the deadline is June 15. Only Money Orders or Certified Checks are accepted after June 15. You can bring cash, money order, or certified check to registration check in. Please mail your payment to BDRC, PO Box 1940, Brevard NC 28712.
Can I become a Junior Counselor the summer after I graduate from high school?
No. NCAA rules prohibit you from becoming a JC until you have completed your freshman year of college.
If you have completed your freshman year and are interested in being a Junior Counselor, you can sign up to be a JC through our staff registration link and we will be in touch.
How many campers to a room?
