Special Camps 2024 Registration Now Open!

Please note, we are volunteers with big hearts. As volunteers we are not trained or equipped to accommodate moderate to more severe emotional / behavioral challenges. Please do not complete an application if I’m describing your family member. Failure to not completely state behavioral challenges will end in you being asked to immediately pick up your child, with no chance of return when more stable. No refund will be given.


Dates: June 2 – 7, 2024 for adults ages 23 and over

June 9 – 14 for youth ages 9 – 22

Cost: $450 for the week. Partial scholarships may be available for those in need.

Please follow the registration process  below, as there is an odd glitch to the online application.  If this application takes you longer than 15 minutes to complete, please give me a call as I’d be happy to walk you through the new online registration process.   ALL 3 steps must be received in order to register.

Step 1. Health form needs to be printed, signed by your physician and either emailed or mailed back to my attention.  Please email me  @ if you need a health form.


Step 2. Complete camper application online. Please follow these steps. Once complete you will receive a note that the application is complete.  Due to a small technical glitch, please follow the exact directions listed below.

Download the application by placing this on your browser or ask Miss Colleen to send it to your email.


Note. Campers must complete the Camper 2024 Summer Camp Application, the High Sierra Adventure Course Medical Form and the Cabin Parent Questionnaire.

All forms MUST be viewed by all applicants. Please go to each section, even if it’s not for you, (like the counselor and staff applications). Scroll down to the bottom of each.  Check I am not a staff member, and sign it. Then press Continue. Example below.



Step 3. Camp fee can be paid via credit card on this website or a check can be mailed to our office. The fee is $450. A ten dollar handling fee applies to payments made online. If desired pay half now, and the other half before May 1st. Go to Look for the word purchases across the top. Complete refunds will be given if for any reason we are unable to accept your camper.


Need Some Help? If completing this application takes you longer than 15 minutes… please call! I’m happy to walk you through the process.
