Thank you for your interest in our October 2023 camp event!!
Due to an overwhelming response,
we have taken the applications off of our website.
What does this mean?
We have received more applications than there are spots.
Does this mean we will not be able to attend camp?
Not necessarily. We will now begin the process of reviewing applications to determine if youth and families meet the requirements to attend and can benefit from our program.
How do I find out if a spot opens up?
Please complete the waitlist form below. If for any reason a spot for you and your family becomes available (this happens), we will reach out to you regarding the next steps.
