PTFC Camps Policies

Heat Policy 

If the heat index rises to extreme or dangerous levels, the camp program will be adjusted accordingly. In the event that a camp is modified or canceled you will be notified via email or text message as soon as a decision has been made. In addition, the following heat index guidelines are adhered to on all camp programs:

Heat Index


Light Orange

Training conditions are acceptable, use normal rehydration and activity duration principles. Fatigue is possible with prolonged exposure and/or physical activity.


Use caution with young and sensitive groups. Modify frequency of water breaks if needed, take breaks in shade. Sunstroke, muscle cramps, and/or heat exhaustion possible with prolonged exposure and/or physical activity.


Training sessions should be shortened and intensity levels modified. Sunstroke, muscle cramps, and/or heat exhaustion likely. Heatstroke possible with prolonged exposure and/or physical activity. Training sessions for young and sensitive groups should be canceled.


Training should be canceled for all ages. Heat stroke likely.

Details of the heat index can be found here.

Poor Air Quality Policy from Smoke/Haze

Our staff will monitor the air quality through the official Oregon government website here. We will continue to operate our programs until they reach the red “unhealthy” levels of air quality. An email or text message will be sent out in the event of a cancellation. If you are concerned about the air quality for your child, we urge you to use your best judgement and withhold them from physical activity if you think it is unsafe.

Thunder and Lightning Policy

In the case of a thunder and lightning storm, we will move campers to a safe area indoors. Should the field location not have one suitable, we will cancel the camp and notify all parents/guardians that they need to pick up their player immediately.

Refund Policy

The policy of the Portland Timbers is to issue no refunds after a child has participated in a game, practice, or event. Prior to playing in a game, practice, or event, a refund of the registration fee will be issued upon request. The Portland Timbers reserve the right to place an administrative fee on any and all refunds.

We also reserve the right to offer refunds for acts of nature that cancel or reduce camp time. Some examples of this include, but are not limited to smoke/haze, high winds, lightning, extreme heat, hail or heavy rain.
