Frequently Asked Questions

Please check the frequently asked questions below or browse the website to find any information you need.

If you cannot find what you're looking for, please contact us.

Who is eligible to attend?
All campers must be between the ages of those entering 8th grade and seniors to be in high school. Those campers who come individually (as most are) will be combined to form their own team during passing league so that everyone can enjoy the team experience.
Can I choose my roommate?
Yes. You can choose this on your registration form. Both campers must choose each other to be paired together.
My teammates are also coming to camp, can we be on the same passing leage team?
Yes! We will always do our best to group players coming from the same school together. However, our teams are also determined by grade, and under no circumstances will a player move up a level. If players would like to move down, we will allow it.
I'm an overnight camper, what do I need to bring?
All overnight campers must provide their own bedding; sleeping bags are recommended. Rooms include a bed and mattress for each camper, but you must provide your own towels, wash cloths, and any other toiletries. You should also bring enough T-shirts, shorts, and socks for 3 changes daily; you’ll be sweating and will need multiple changes of clothes.
I'm an overnight camper, what should I NOT bring with me?
We recommend that you do NOT bring anything of value (jewelry, radios, substantial amounts of cash, TVs, etc.). We cannot vouch for everyone who attends camp. Everyone must be vigilant regarding security and safety. That means always lock your door and put your name on everything.
Are there laundry facilities on site?
Yes. Most of the dorms on campus have laundry machines and vending machines with detergent. You must have your own change/card to use these machines.
Which grade should I put, the grade I'm in now or next fall?
We group teams and dorm assignments according to what grade you will be entering in the fall of after the MPA is complete. Please do not enter your current grade, but only the grade you'll be entering in the fall of 2024.
Will all of the Mannings be at camp?
Yes! Archie, Cooper, Peyton, and Eli are the first to arrive and the last to leave. They live right on campus with the campers and eat in the same dining hall. They will all actively oversee a staff of more than 120 coaches and 40 administrations (maintaining a camper-to-coach ratio of 10:1).
Will there be an autograph session?
No. Although celebrities attend the MPA, this is not a celebrity camp. The Manning Passing Academy prides itself on being a “working” football camp. The focus of our staff is to improve each camper's skills so that they leave camp a better football player than when they arrived. Autographs can become a sideshow and we ask all campers and staff (and spectators) to refrain from making autograph requests.
I just graduated high school, can I still attend?
No. The camp is only available to campers entering grades 8-12 in the fall of 2024
Do I need medical insurance to attend camp?
Yes. All campers must be covered by insurance to attend the camp. You CANNOT attend without it. If you do not have insurance you should ask your high school coach what options may exist. In addition a parental or guardian release is required for all campers (if you register online, you already agreed to this release).
Do I need to complete a physical before attending camp?
No. Proof of medical insurance is all that is required.
How can I check if my registration is confirmed?
We send a confirmation email when your application is processed. Please check your SPAM box if you did not receive an email. You can also use the confirmation page.
Do I need to bring a helmet?
No. Other than cleats and a mouthpiece, there are no equipment requirements at the MPA.
Can parents attend of the practice sessions?
Absolutely. Spectators are always welcome to watch all practices and 7-on-7 drills … as long as they stay outside of the security barriers (insurance liability).
Can parents attend the evening speaker sessions?
Yes. The evening speaker sessions take place in Guidry Stadium and can be attended. If weather forces the session indoors, then only campers are able to attend.
What is your refund policy?
You would get all of your money back except the non-refundable $100 deposit and any applicable online registration fees. The camp hires a large number of coaches to provide instruction based on expected attendance. The reason is when you cancel, we still have to compensate the coaches we've hired. You can also choose to roll your registration forward to the 2025 camp.
What if I have a medical condition - who should I tell?
It depends upon the condition. If you have dietary requirements you should email us as soon as possible so we can discuss the situation with the dining hall. Most (if not all) situations are remedied to the satisfaction of the camper. If you need to take medication (or it needs to be refrigerated) you should consult with our medical staff during check-in. They are available at the front of the line. Understand, it is your responsibility to address these concerns upon arrival so that we can assist you.
What coaches will be at camp?
Due to the fact that there is so much movement in the football coaching profession, we are unable to provide a list of staff members until camp and represent all levels of football (professional, college and high school). Rest assured they will always be of the highest quality available.
