When is Family Camp?
Family Camp runs from 5pm on Friday, May 15, 2020 until 1pm Sunday, May 17, 2020. Due to the large number of families wanting to attend Family Camp, we ask that your family commit to the entire weekend. If your family has sporting events that interfere with the weekend, please choose to attend one or the other.
How does the lottery registration system work?
Cabin and tent reservations will be assigned through a lottery system this year.
All lottery registrations will be entered into our computer system, and the computer will run a random lottery to determine camp reservations and waitlist spots.
When can I register for the lottery?
Tent camping (10 spots available) lottery registration is available Tuesday, February 11, 2020 until midnight. Cabin camping (20 spots available) lottery registration is available Wednesday, February 12, 2020 until midnight.
When will the lottery be run?
The Family Camp lottery for both tent and cabins will be run on February 13th at noon.
How will I know if I received a spot in camp?
Parents will be texted after the lottery run on the afternoon of February 13th to notify them if they received a tent/cabin spot or if they are waitlisted. If you receive a spot, a follow-up email will come from Campdoc with a link to complete registration and pay the commitment fee. The commitment fee must be received within 24 hours to confirm registration otherwise your spot will be forfeited and offered to the next family on the waitlist.
Please note: If a family does not get in for tent camping, they are automatically added to the cabin lottery.
