AC Milan Academy Camp – Formula Junior and Day
The children arrive at the camp on Sunday at 2 pm. The check-in takes place immediately and the campers are assigned an AC Milan Academy sport kit, so they can arrive properly fitted out at the field for their first afternoon training: in fact at 4 pm they leave the hotel to go to the soccer pitch. This training is mainly to introduce them to their coaches and give them their first instructions on the rules of the camp and the behavior expected of them.
The awards ceremony is held on Friday evening, with the parents present, to award cups and medals to the players and teams who have won the individual challenges and Squads League which take place in the afternoons from Monday to Friday; a certificate of attendance at the AC Milan Junior Camp is given to all participants and a short video shot by the staff during the week is shown.
11v11 friendly games are held on Saturday mornings and the camp ends with lunch.
A typical program for the AC Milan Camp includes two training sessions per day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Each session is two hours long. The rest of the day is taken up by entertainment and recreational activities (TV room, group play, karaoke, minigolf, swimming when possible, etc.).

The DAY CAMP formula will apply. In this case the camper does not stay overnight in the hotel, which is frequently the case of somebody residing in the town where the MJC is held. The camper arrives at the hotel every morning at 8.45 am. He then leaves for the soccer field with the rest of the group and returns to the hotel after showering after the second training held in the afternoon (6.30 pm) or evening (9.30 pm).
