Parking for MVP Sports Camp

When you are dropping off/picking up your child(ren), there is parking available in the FunworX parking lot. To get to our camp please enter the FunworX building, go down the stairs, through the arcade and out the back glass doors. You will see International Square on your left and that is where you will sign your child(ren) in and out all week.

Please Note

On Friday, the CMTFest will be happening at Bingemans. Please be patient with the parking and allow for a bit of extra time as they will be stopping and directing traffic. You will still park in the FunworX parking lot and go through the building to International Square.
