How do I get my camper a spot on the bus?

You can register your child for a spot on the bus at the time of registration for $60 each way. If you decide after registering that you would like your child to ride the bus, you can call us in the camp office to check on availability and register over the phone. We highly recommend that you reserve your spot on the bus as soon as you know your plans, as spaces are limited.  Bus fees are non-refundable after June 1.

How do I register for additional programs?

You can register for additional programs like horseback riding, waterskiing, sailing concentration, climbing concentration or Frodo Journeys at the time of registration. If you would like to add one of these programs after you have registered, you can call us in the camp office at (734) 661-8051 to check on availability and register over the phone. We highly recommend you reserve a spot in one of these programs early, as there is a limited enrollment each session.
