    Can attending a summer sports camp affect your potential to become sport recruited by the academy?

    It could possibly improve your chances by being observed and coached by members of the USNA coaching staff.

    I doubt it would hurt your potential unless you cop a tude or do something else inappropriate. On the other hand it will give you an opportunity to get to know more about USNA, work with some coaches, etc. It could be a good alternate to NASS.

    Best wishes.

    A campus visit in general will help you find out whether you really want to be at that college.

    The short answer is yes. And, that applies to most colleges too.

    But its best to go between your Soph and Jr years because that's when most recruiting is done. Example: In Jan 2009 (winter of Jr year), DD contacted D1 coach saying that she was interested in talking with him and perhaps having him watch her at a nearby "college showcase". The reply: "Thank you for your interest but we have already completed our recruiting for 2010."

    Attending a sports camp would help for you to determine whether you want to play that sport at that college. I went to USNA's lacrosse camp and was able to interact with players and learn how they felt about the Academy, and hear what their lives were like. I found a lot out about the program and the coaching style just from four/five days. Assuming we're talking about a D1 sport, if the coaches are already looking at you as a possible recruit, they can use the camp to evaluate you over a wider span of time than they might normally do just from watching you play a couple games or so during a tournament. Or, if you were previously unknown to them/haven't contacted them before, you can work hard and maybe spark their interest.

    Adventure sports summer camps mainly concentrate at providing great memorable experience and training. This lets the child learn to survive in different situation.
