HOW TO RESISTER AND CHECK IN TO CAMP
To register online for camp, go to the camp website, click on the button, read the safety info and rules, then fill out the online form. Keep Scrolling. That part of the registration contains A LOT OF INFO, but you can get through it!
There is a processing fee for using the online registration service, if your church is paying or you'd rather save that money please print out the .pdf form labeled "mvcsc_registration_card.pdf" near the bottom of this page and mail it in with your cash,check,money order and/or church pay or scholarship coupon.
Space is limited and pre-registration prior to arrival at camp is required. When all the beds are full registration will close. Please get your camp pre-registration in early. Spots will be based on a first come, first served basis.
On the plus side, camp check-in goes much faster than before! Simply bring your camper to the campground at 3 PM, or the published check in time. Stay in your car. We will have a check-in person with a clipboard list of all the pre-registered campers stationed at the front (South-East) corner of the cafeteria. The cafeteria is the large white building with a green roof on you right as you drive up the hil to camp. Drive up to the check in person, notify them of who you are dropping off, answer a few questions, turn in meds, then drop them off at their dorm and head home. We'll get their t-shirts and schedules to them at the orientation meeting. Please send your camper to camp with a water bottle or canteen. We will have some for sale if they forget.
Please make sure to place all medicines, and a list with the camper's name, medicine name/dosages/times to be administered (breakfast, lunch, supper, bed) and other care instructions in a sealed plastic gallon baggie with the camper's name written in marker or pen on the outside. Check out will be similar. Please make sure you check your camper out with the dean when camp is over.
