APPLICATION & AID

Applying to Kieve and Wavus

Applications to camp open for the following summer in early September. Enrollment is reserved for returning families and junior session campers until October 15. Applicants are encouraged to apply early as enrollment fills up quickly. Submitting an application does not automatically enroll the camper.

Step 1 – Submit your application through CampMinder.

Step 2 – Enrollment is confirmed on a rolling basis via email. Once your camper is enrolled, you will be directed to more information about preparing for the exciting summer ahead.

Step 3 – Make tuition payments before the first business day in March.
