Dear Campers, Parents, Guardians, Church Sponsors, and Friends of Camp Walter Scott,

Summer couldn’t arrive fast enough, especially on a cold and snowy day like today! Well, summer will be here faster than we know it so we are already preparing for our summer program at Camp Walter Scott. Of course, there are many things that remain uncertain at this moment due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. However, we are diligently working to have a safe and memorable in-person camping experience for all of our campers this summer while also preparing for virtual or at-home alternatives, if necessary. We have announced our dates for camps this summer and online registration will open soon. We will also continue updating as necessary given guidelines and best practices from health officials and professionals.

Because we know that things might change, we will continue our temporary adjustments to our registration, cancellation, and refund policies to ease the registration process. Parents, guardians, and churches may register their campers without sending payment immediately. Simply complete the online form and select the “Check Payment” option during checkout. This will ensure we have the camper’s registration in our roster; later, our office will be in contact to arrange payment prior to the beginning of camp. Additionally, there will be no late registration fee. Lastly, any paid registration cancelled at least two weeks before camp starts will be refunded without penalty (a small processing fee might apply). The registration deadline is two weeks before the beginning of each camp.
