How do I register a camper?

You will register online in a “phased application” process.

The first step is to submit an initial application and deposit.

The second step is to then log into your account and complete the required forms*.

*Some forms require you to print and obtain a physician signature, and then faxed back to camp.

To receive the early application discount, you will need to have a 100% completed application and all forms submitted by the priority deadline.

Each campers complete file is medically reviewed for acceptance. Campers are admitted on a first-completion basis.

How do you decide who to accept?

Your child will be accepted if we still have room and there are no significant behavioral or medical factors that would preclude acceptance.
