Camper Application Process

The goal of our application process is to get to know the personality and needs of our campers. This helps us match campers 1:1 with a counselor who will be a good fit, and also helps ensure that our medical staff and team are ready for campers to make a smooth transition to camp.

In-Person Overnight Camper Application Process

Due to high interest, space at camp can be limited.

Each year, applicants must submit an online application AND complete an interview with our leadership team to be considered for a spot in a cabin. We expect camp sessions to fill up quickly, so please complete your online application and interview as soon as possible once applications are open.

Please remember, even though we try to accommodate every individual who applies, a submitted application does not guarantee acceptance.

Step 2: Interview

Once your application is complete, you’ll receive an invitation via email to schedule a call with a member of our leadership team. We like to chat with you to help make sure we’ve got everything you would need at camp, to discuss your goals and needs for the week, and to see what we can do to make sure you have a safe, comfortable, and fun week at camp.

For returning campers, these are done via phone, and for new campers, we like to do them via an online video tool so we can see you and meet each other! A link to your video chat and scheduling system will be sent to you via email.

NOTE: Applicants will not be considered for a spot in a cabin until they complete their interview, so make sure to schedule yours as soon as you receive your email invitation!

Step 3: Medical Documents

For the health and safety of all of our campers, each camper must complete a medical exam and have their doctor complete the Camp Promise Medical Form. As part of your online application, you will be asked to upload the following:

  • Camp Promise Medical Form signed by the camper’s doctor*
  • Copy of camper’s immunization records
  • Copy of Covid-19 Vaccination & Booster
  • Additional medical directives (optional)

* We cannot accept medical forms from other institutions. Please have your provider sign the Camp Promise Medical Form.

All medical documents were due on April 3, 2023.
