Register a child for camp:
Summer camps are sponsored by numerous local Churches of varying denominations and are facilitated by both Camp Viola staff and Church volunteers. Parents may chose to:
Contact a local Church themselves to inquire if that Church is sponsoring a week of camp during the upcoming summer camp season at Camp Viola.
Register an eligible child through a local elementary school that has partnered with a church. Forms should be completed by the child’s parent(s) and turned in to the school’s Guidance Counselor.In addition, many of the Churches partner with local elementary schools to assist in identifying children that would be eligible to participate in a summer camp as defined by the Camp Viola Mission Statement.
Parents can also visit campviola.com to download a camper application, complete the application, and then forward to the Director of Camp Viola or send with their child to his/her elementary school and be given to a schools Counselor to be forwarded to the identified partnering Church.
Every year the available slots for camp fill up very quickly. As that occurs the Camp Viola Director initiates a “waiting list” where children’s names eligible for a week at camp are placed and selected for a week at camp as “slots” become available. In most cases we are able to match a child with an opening at one of the camps if we have been made aware of the child’s desire to go to camp.
