The camp will be utilizing both indoor courts as well as outdoor grass courts at one of the most beautiful college campuses in all of California. Pepperdine University features comfortable living accommodations for two people in a room and four rooms per suite.  Campers must provide their own bedding.  Laundry facilities are available in the dorms if needed.

Wholesome buffet meals will be served in the University cafeteria that gives you a view of the Pacific Ocean while you eat.

Campers will be supervised at all times by our staff. They will not be allowed to leave camp for any purpose without prior written permission from their parents. Please remember to provide a name and phone number of an additional person to contact in case of emergency.

Pepperdine University is located at the cross streets of Pacific Coast Highway and Malibu Canyon Road. When arriving at Pepperdine, a Campus Officer at the gate can direct you to our location on campus. Further detailed information can be found under Arrival / Departure. For any unanswered questions, Contact Us at the Dunphy Volleyball Camp office.

Please Note: Campers must bring their own bedding and towels!

Spending Money & Snack Food (optional - we have a campus bookstore that sells many University items); $25-$40 should be more than enough.  In addition, we have found that since dinner is early, some campers get hungry later in the evening after the cafeteria is closed and like to order pizza.  Snack food may be brought or purchased on campus.


A daily pre-camp conditioning program is strongly recommended to achieve maximum benefit from the camp.
