3.  Having flexibility in the week a camper desires to attend opens up more possible opportunities for acceptance.

4.  Being able to sleep on a top bunk greatly increases an applicant’s chances to be accepted.

5.  The medical form section of application must be completed in full, and signed by a doctor. Only the medical form from the application may be submitted.
