During the registration process you will fill out a camper health form and document any regular medication your child will bring to camp. Every camper (child or adult) who attends a summer camp program must have a completed health form on file. This information can be edited at anytime through your camp account. Information You will need to complete the Health Form includes: Health Insurance information, emergency contact phone numbers, camper's health history, and camper medication.
Camperships (Financial Assistance)
Our hope is that no camper is denied the opportunity of a week at camp because of finances. We are glad to offer financial assistance for campers through the Gayle Ross Memorial Campership Fund. In order to be considered for campership funds all you have to do is contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, talk to your Lutheran pastor, or fill out the campership form: Campership Fund Application. If you are seeking assistance, we will ask you to give what you can, at least the $50 deposit per camper. We trust that you will be honest with us about your needs. In thanks to those who support the Gayle Ross Memorial Campership Fund we are able to provide the funding requested by many who cannot financially afford to send their children to camp. Our prayer is that no one should be kept from coming to camp because of financial hardship. Please consider making a donation to this fund so that we can reach as many families as possible with the Gospel message of Jesus Christ.
Each camper can request up to two cabin mates to stay in the same cabin. The cabinmates must be the same sex, must be less than two years apart in age, and must register for the same program. We will do our best to honor your cabin mate requests. However, we have to consider staffing and cabin group size when assigning housing.
Let’s make sure your camper has everything they need for their week of camp. Refer to this Packing List as you prepare for your child’s week at camp. Some packing tips:
Campers will walk between their cabin and the bathhouse each morning and evening. Sending a small back pack can help when carrying toiletries, clothes, and towels.
A camp experience often includes getting dirty and sweaty. Please send your child with play clothes and shoes that can get dirty as they hike and play at camp!
Encourage your child to help in the packing process. Make sure he/she knows where everything is located in the luggage.
Label items when possible so they can be returned to their owner.
One of the last activities your child may do on Friday is swimming. Sending a bag for wet items will help keep everything else dry as you travel home.

As part of your online registration, you can deposit money into your camper's Store Account, and you can put money on your camper's account at any time so they can shop during their week of camp. This is an optional service. This account allows campers to shop for apparel and souvenirs during their week of camp. All campers will receive an afternoon and evening snack while at camp as part of their registration fee. Your camper will not need ANY cash during the week. The Camp Store will be open during camper check in and check out for purchases with camp store funds, cash, check, or credit card.
