Overnight Camp Director: Megan Cull (

Founded in 1850 by abolitionist, educator, and outdoorsman Frederick Gunn, The Gunnery is a coeducational college preparatory boarding and day school in Washington, CT. The Gunnery has a 220 acres campus with state of the art athletic facilities. The school has high quality multi-purpose turf and grass fields and multiple indoor gymnasiums. All dorm buildings have shared common rooms with comfortable couches and televisions for down time. The Gunnery is a perfect setting for an intense, challenging and fun DTS Overnight Camp.

The 5 full day camp is designed to provide a quality training program in combination with the overnight experience of a soccer camp within a private school setting. Players will improve greatly in a short period of time and will be challenged to think about the game and encouraged to develop all skills in game situations.

The camp is led by our DTS Staff, all of which have KNVB and UEFA licenses. Training will focus on the Dutch Concept of training: Knowing WHAT to do, WHEN to do it and HOW to do it at the technical and tactical speed that is required in the modern game. In addition to soccer practices, games, scrimmages and instruction, the camp will include team building and other non-soccer activities to keep your child interested in the entire week’s activities.

The camp is for girls and boys from 9 to 16 years of age, with housing dedicated to each. In addition to our trainers, the staff will include chaperones and on site medical staff. Sign-ups are now taking place with limited availability. Teams of 10 or more wishing to sign up will receive a customized camp package (including discounts, trainer request and curricula).
