Camper Application Process
Our goal is to accept as many campers as possible to camp each summer. In order to do so, we need to know the ins-and-outs of each child's health history to ensure we can provide the physical and emotional support they require. Therefore, we have a rather extensive application and review process which is outlined below.
Step 1: Apply
To get things started, fill out the online application in CampDoc. This creates a record in our system of your child's interest in attending either our June or July session. It also contains basic info like age, gender, and parent/guardian contact details. Access to this site will be required on a recurring basis, so save your login and password. Once the application is complete, immediately proceed to step 2 and submit the required health history forms.
step 2: Forms
Once an application has been submitted, it's time to complete the required health history information. Dependent on whether the applicant is a patient or sibling, this will consist of either one or two steps: all applicants must fill out the online Health Profile in CampDoc, while only patients (both on- and off-treatment) need to also submit a Medical Sign-Off Form signed by a physician or nurse practitioner saying the child is approved to attend camp.
step 3: Acceptance
Applicants are not guaranteed acceptance to camp until they receive an official acceptance email from the camp director. This will take place after the application deadline has passed and the director and medical team have had an opportunity to review both the application and health-related forms. If applicants meet our requirements, we can safely care for the child, and we have an open space, we will happily approve their application and invite them to camp.
Applications are only live (available for submission) during a specific period of time, generally from early February–May. Applications filled out outside of the current year's open period will not be accepted.
