2022 Camper Registration

2022 Information

Camper Capacity & Waitlists

Because we are operating a different model with reduced weekly capacity, we anticipate waitlists and have plans in place to manage them. We think that between now and camp, our capacity may increase, so if you want to attend the session, add yourself to the waitlist! We will communicate frequently to inform families on waitlists with updates. 

Camper/Friend Requests

This summer, we are developing a new method of building cabin groups and cohorts. We understand that it is important for many reasons for your camper to get a chance to go to camp "with" people they love and trust. As a part of the registration process, you can request that your camper be in a cabin or group with any other campers. We ask that you indicate 1-3 preferred requests. We will create cabin and cohort assignments with thoughtfulness around your requests and while we may not be able to honor multiple requests for each camper, we will make sure that each camper has at least one request honored. You are encouraged to share any information that might help us make the best cabin groups possible.

COVID Related Policies and Practices

At the moment, we are still considering many factors, paying attention to what is emerging, and developing our official COVID-related policies and practices. The FAQ page contains many details that will be included in our plans, and we will share everything with families as it is more developed. There will be multiple opportunities to learn, discuss, and understand camp practices throughout the spring and early summer.  Our hope is to create plans and programs that are safe and still embody all the love, silliness, and welcome that are essential to our camps.

Refund Policy

Our 2022 cancelation and refund policy can be found down below.

Basic Registration Information

We are encouraging families to register online in 2022. If you need someone to walk you through, or would prefer a paper form, contact Paris Ball (pball@thediocese.net)

POLICIES AND PROCEDURES:
  • Campers must be within the specified ages on the first day of their camp.

  • Campers are expected to be present for the entire session. They may not come late or leave early.

  • A $75 non-refundable deposit per camper per session must accompany the registration. (This will be applied to your total fee.) Registrations without deposits will not be processed. Make checks payable to Shrine Mont Camps.

  • A health form is required as part of registration. This form is required for ALL participants and MUST be returned NO LATER THAN June 1, 2022!

    • You have two options for returning the health form:

      • 1) You may have a doctor sign off on the health form we provide, and return that on its own.

      • 2) You may return the health form (signed by a parent/guardian) along with proof of a recent doctor's physical examination (examination must be completed within the past 15 months).

PLEASE NOTE:
Shrine Mont Camp is a wonderful experience for campers, however, there are some conditions that we are unable to accommodate. If you have questions or concerns regarding your child's health conditions, we strongly encourage you to contact Paris Ball prior to registering your camper.

PLEASE NOTE:

  • The terrain at Shrine Mont is hilly and uneven, requiring some agility and stamina.

  • Inform us of necessary accommodations for dietary restrictions, health concerns, and any behavioral or developmental differences by May 3, 2022 so that we can prepare adequately.

SCHOLARSHIP INFORMATION
People come to Shrine Mont to celebrate being a part of the family of God. The cost of camp should not keep any child from attending.

 

  • Scholarship forms are available online here.

  • Families are STRONGLY encouraged to inquire of their clergy or senior warden about the availability of scholarship aid at the parish or regional level.

  • Scholarship requests will be responded to on a rolling basis, please fill out the information form as you register. Please contact Paris Ball to discuss any situation or concern.

2022 CANCELLATION & REFUND POLICY:

  • Cancellations should be made in writing.

  • We cannot refund your deposit after you are accepted, unless The Diocese of Virginia cancels the event.

  • For cancellations made less than 2 weeks before the first day of camp, a 50% penalty will be assessed. Cancellations made more than two weeks before the first day of camp receive a full refund, minus the $75 deposit. One exception to that would be a camper who is sick or has been exposed to COVID. We will work with families to make sure that they receive a refund in that scenario.

It is the explicit policy of Shrine Mont and the Diocese of Virginia that possession or use of controlled substances, nonprescription drugs, alcohol, tobacco, firearms, fireworks and dangerous weapons is prohibited at all youth camps and conferences.
