We have updated our forms a little, so please ensure you navigate through all the pages. And please let us know if this is easier than before! We’re always trying to make it better for you! Please note, if you have received a partial bursary, but not yet paid, it is on the full amount of camp, not a discounted amount. Total discounts  never exceeded 25%. 

Camper Information

Please make sure that you enter your campers in order of oldest to youngest!
If your child goes by a nickname or short form, we want to make sure we call them by what they like!

Basic Information

If you have not registered in the past two years for our camps, we may not have accurate information. Even if you have, we need some things answered every year to make sure we have the right family, and provide the best care for your family. We attempt to make it as painless as possible while still getting the information we need for camp.
