This summer, in order to greatly improve the efficiency of the camp check-in process during our arrival on Sunday afternoons, we will be assigning all campers to cabins and units prior to camp arrival based on their age/grade next Fall. During the camp registration process you will have the opportunity to request a maximum of two (2) preferred cabin “buddies” and we will assign you to the same cabin pre-arrival.

Health Forms are no longer required. In lieu of a specific health form we have made some changes to our online registration process by adding pertinent questions regarding your child’s health history to ensure your child’s safety and well being while at camp. Please check with your licensed medical provider to determine if your child needs a physical within 12 months of attending camp. You should consult our Register Online website pages for all current health requirements prior to registration.

Call the main Portland office at (503) 231-9484 and ask for the Camp Registrar, Jenifer Kluthe, who can assist you to reset your password.

When you complete your child's registration you will receive an immediate confirmation email. Please check the Parent Information page of our website to find a detailed Camp Information Packet.
