How Do I Sign Up?

Each church group is required to register with a refundable, non-transferable $250.00 deposit for camp. This deposit may go towards your balance at the time of registration or can automatically be left to allow your group to become a Discovery Camp Partner for the following summer. In addition to each camp date reserved, a $25.00 per church group registration fee is required. Groups are responsible for paying the complete balance upon arrival at registration. Youth and Children groups require a separate deposit and each church group must register separately. This includes churches with multiple campuses, as well as church groups that are traveling together.

What Happens If I Cancel?

Any and all cancellations made after the Reservation Form has been signed, will result in a forfeiture of their $250.00 deposit. Cancellations made after the Group Agreement Form has been signed will forfeit the group deposit and will also hold the group accountable for payment of 50% of confirmed total amount. Upon registering, a complete information packet will be sent to you. Your $250.00 deposit, plus the $25.00 registration fee, may be mailed in today along with your Discovery Camp Reservation Form to secure you a summer camp date.

Will Our Group Stay In The Same Dorm?

Your time at camp is a special time for youth group unity. Our goal is to keep each group together, however, due to limited spacing, groups may be divided. If a group is divided, we will work with the leader of the group to get the best arrangements possible. Please note that part of camp is having the opportunity to meet new friends in a Christian environment.
