  • Be sure your camper is ready for camp. Will they want to be there?
  • Sessions often fill before the scheduled deadlines/registration closing dates
  • Summer registration usually begins in early January!
  • Winter Camp registration usually begins in early October
  • Please write your camper letters or send postcards while they are at camp! Mail is awesome!
  • If you will be out of town while your child is at camp you MUST plan for and provide an
    emergency contact person who will be able to act or pick your camper up in your place should
    the need arise. (Sickness, accident, power-outage or severe weather at camp, behavior, etc.)
  • When using our online registration through Camp Network:
    Your child is NOT registered unless you have made a $25 commitment fee deposit

    • If you are unable to complete all the registration steps while trying to register, the
      system will now save your information for you to complete later.
    • Although you still need to pay for each child separately, you will now be prompted at
      the end of registering the first child if you would like to register another.
    • If you choose to use a previous registration when signing up for new camp sessions, be
      sure to go through ALL the questions to make sure they still apply and are accurate.
    • Income information will always need to be re-entered because it is not carried forward
      by the system from any previous year. If you have multiple children, make sure the
      information applies to the correct child and all phone numbers and information used
      previously is still accurate. For example, your child will be a year older, will likely be in a
      new grade in school, etc.

When signing up for a waiting list:

    • Use the campers name and information (not parent or guardian)
      Only one name per spot on list (if you have multiple children each must have
      their own spot on the list, it is always first come, first served.)
    • In the Comments section please include the camper’s age, your name and a
      contact phone number.


What you need to know if your camper is sent home early due to negative behavior:

  • Campers will not be allowed to attend another session in the same summer even if they are
    already registered. There are no refunds.
  • They will not be eligible to attend Winter Camp in December that year.
  • You and your camper will need to have a conversation with the Camp Director for approval to
    return before attending the following summer or future sessions.
