Preparing Your Child for Camp/ Registration Checklist

  • Camper online forms complete no later than two weeks prior to your camper’s arrival at camp. (Click here to login to your account)
  • PLEASE NOTE: A physician’s signature is REQUIRED for camp and your camper must have a physical within the past 12 MONTHS
  • Cabin mate request filled out two weeks prior to your camper’s arrival at camp.
  • Camp Store is an additional charge to registration fees. You can add camp store under the subprograms option on the camper portal.
  • If you are planning to send mail to your camper, we HIGHLY encourage you to drop off all mail at the Camp Store on check-in day, rather than mailing it to camp during the session. Dropping off mail on-site will ensure your campers will receive it on time.
  • Please remember to label ALL personal items (towels, clothes, shoes, bibles, etc.) with your camper’s name. This year is especially important to ensure your camper’s items (including luggage) are well-labeled!
  • Please note: Female campers need a one-piece bathing suit or a tankini that covers the midsection.
  • ALL campers will be provided a face covering to help promote the safety of all of our campers and staff, but please be sure to bring at least 1-2 additional washable gaiter-style face masks for your camper.

Important Forms Needed

All campers must have a physical within 12 months arrival of camp. Please have the following form filled out by a physician: Camper Medical Form

In an effort to minimize illness at camp we ask that you check on the health of your camper daily beginning 10 days prior to camp. We want to make sure we are starting each session “clean” with healthy campers and this begins at home. Please bring the completed Health Screening/Temperature Log Form to camp on opening day.

Please make sure your camper fulfills the following requirements:

  • Your child has not been around anyone with any of the symptoms or diagnosis of COVID-19 in the 10 days before the start of camp
  • No one in your household has been sick in the 14 days prior to camp
  • Your child has not traveled internationally in the last 14 days.
  • Your child has adhered to our state’s guidelines regarding COVID-19.
