Rooming & Roommates
DON’T WORRY! We know you want to room with your best friend or team, so we got you covered. This is how we do it… We hold a specific amount of rooms, all next to each other, for each team (the team you wrote on your application). On the first day of camp at registration, you and your intended roommate register together (registration tables will be labeled by team, not camper’s last name). At that time, you and your roommate will be assigned one of the rooms that we held for your team–and Voila! Simple, fast and easy. NOTE: Your team or school affiliation must be the same on your application as your intended roommate in order to room together.
Not coming with a team? Walk away from camp not only a better hockey player, but with a new best friend! All campers who come as individuals room together, and are paired by age. Look for the “individuals” table when registering.
Training & Tournament Teams
Again, DON’T WORRY! We know you want to play with your team and friends. NOTE: Your team or school affiliation must be the same on your application as your intended teammate so we can place you together.
Coming solo? All campers who come as “individuals” will be assigned to a team with other individuals of similar abilities

More Questions Answered Here
What is meningococcal disease?
Meningococcal disease is caused by infection with bacteria called Neisseria meningitidis. These bacteria can infect the
tissue (the “meninges”) that surrounds the brain and spinal cord and cause meningitis, or they may infect the blood or
other organs of the body. Symptoms of meningococcal disease may appear suddenly. Fever, severe and constant
headache, stiff neck or neck pain, nausea and vomiting, and rash can all be signs of meningococcal disease. Changes
in behavior such as confusion, sleepiness, and trouble waking up can also be important symptoms. In the US, about
350-550 people get meningococcal disease each year and 10-15% die despite receiving antibiotic treatment. Of those
who survive, about 10-20% may lose limbs, become hard of hearing or deaf, have problems with their nervous system,
including long term neurologic problems, or have seizures or strokes. Less common presentations include pneumonia
How is meningococcal disease spread?
These bacteria are passed from person-to-person through saliva (spit). You must be in close contact with an infected
person’s saliva in order for the bacteria to spread. Close contact includes activities such as kissing, sharing water
bottles, sharing eating/drinking utensils or sharing cigarettes with someone who is infected; or being within 3-6 feet of
someone who is infected and is coughing and sneezing.
Who is most at risk for getting meningococcal disease?
People who travel to certain parts of the world where the disease is very common, microbiologists, people with HIV
infection and those exposed to meningococcal disease during an outbreak are at risk for meningococcal disease.
Children and adults with damaged or removed spleens or persistent complement component deficiency (an inherited
immune disorder) are at risk. Adolescents, and people who live in certain settings such as college freshmen living in
dormitories and military recruits are at greater risk of disease from some of the serotypes.
Are camp attendees at increased risk for meningococcal disease?
Children attending day or residential camps are not considered to be at an increased risk for meningococcal disease
because of their participation.
Is there a vaccine against meningococcal disease?
Yes, there are 2 different meningococcal vaccines. Quadrivalent meningococcal conjugate vaccine (Menactra and
Menveo) protects against 4 serotypes (A, C, W and Y) of meningococcal disease. Meningococcal serogroup B vaccine
(Bexsero and Trumenba) protects against serogroup B meningococcal disease, for age 10 and older.
Should my child or adolescent receive meningococcal vaccine?
That depends. Meningococcal conjugate vaccine is routinely recommended at age 11-12 years with a booster at age
16. In addition, these vaccines may be recommended for children with certain high-risk health conditions, such as
those described above. Otherwise, meningococcal vaccine is not recommended for attendance at camps.
Meningococcal serogroup B vaccine (Bexsero and Trumenba) is recommended for people with certain relatively rare
high-risk health conditions (examples: persons with a damaged spleen or whose spleen has been removed, those with
persistent complement component deficiency (an inherited disorder), and people who may have been exposed during
an outbreak). Adolescents and young adults (16 through 23 years of age) who do not have high risk conditions may be
vaccinated with a serogroup B meningococcal vaccine, preferably at 16 through 18 years of age, to provide short term
protection for most strains of serogroup B meningococcal disease. Parents of adolescents and children who are at
higher risk of infection, because of certain medical conditions or other circumstances, should discuss vaccination with
their child’s healthcare provider.
How can I protect my child or adolescent from getting meningococcal disease?
The best protection against meningococcal disease and many other infectious diseases is thorough and frequent
handwashing, respiratory hygiene and cough etiquette. Individuals should:
1. wash their hands often, especially after using the toilet and before eating or preparing food (hands should be washed
with soap and water or an alcohol-based hand gel or rub may be used if hands are not visibly dirty);
2. cover their nose and mouth with a tissue when coughing or sneezing and discard the tissue in a trash can; or if they
don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into their upper sleeve.
3. not share food, drinks or eating utensils with other people, especially if they are ill.
4. contact their healthcare provider immediately if they have symptoms of meningococcal disease.
If your child is exposed to someone with meningococcal disease, antibiotics may be recommended to keep your child
from getting sick.
You can obtain more information about meningococcal disease or vaccination from your healthcare provider, your local Board of
Health (listed in the phone book under government), or the Massachusetts Department of Public Health Division of Epidemiology
and Immunization at (617) 983-6800 or on the MDPH website at www.mass.gov/dph.
