You will receive a confirmation email once your payment and registration form are received. If you have not heard from us in a timely manner after submitting your form, please notify us at:


  • Fees include: accommodations, all meals (Thursday dinner to Sunday lunch), light snacks, programming for adults and children, and all recreational activities.
  • Family size includes all adults and children attending camp, with the exception of infants under 12 months if they will stay with parents rather than in the nursery. Infants must be listed on registration form.
  • Nursery space is limited; if you have children ages 1-3, you are encouraged to register early. 
  • Check-in will run from 2:00 to 5:00 on Thursday, July 26th. Please make arrangements to arrive no later than 5:00 p.m. on Thursday if at all possible, to facilitate the check-in process.  For additional schedule notes, see the camp agenda.
  • We want to encourage large families to attend camp, and have set a family maximum rate to help make it more affordable for families of 6 or more.

Camping Option

At this time there is no camping option available. All families will be housed in cottages or motel rooms.

Work-trade & Financial Aid Scholarships

We have tried hard to keep registration fees as low as possible while still providing meaningful programming. We do realize, however, that some families will not be able to attend without financial assistance. For this reason, we make every effort to offer some need-based financial aid and some work-trade discounts. If you would like to register for camp but your attendance is contingent on receiving financial assistance, please fill out the scholarship application form with your online registration form and submit it with a 50% deposit.

At this time (March 20, 2018) the work-trade deadline has passed and we cannot accept any additional work-trade applications.

The deadline for scholarship and work-trade applications was February 15, 2018, and applicants will be notified in the spring.
