Frequently Asked Questions

Why can’t I login?

The most common reason why users get an error when trying to login, is that they never “Registered”. You must first register and create a login account by providing your email address and a password.  After registering, you will be logged in, and may start on a camper application.

Note:  If you created a login for camp 2018, you may use that same login and password.

How do I know that Camp Daniel received my application?

Two automated emails are sent to the email of the person that filled out the application immediately after submitting the application.  One email says that we have received the application, and it also gives very important information on the next steps of the application process. The second email is a summary of all of the actual application.  You may print that summary to keep for your records.

When will I find out if I’m accepted and for which week?

An email will be sent to the person that filled out the application, 30 days before camp.  To ensure the safety and best experience possible for all campers, campers and volunteer counselors cannot be matched up until then.

What is the policy for medications at camp?

MEDICATION POLICY:

Please review the requirements for bringing medications to camp.

  1. All regularly scheduled medications, including over-the-counter medications and vitamins/supplements will be reviewed by the nurse at check-in.
  2. For campers taking 1-2 medications, they may be:

a. pre-packaged (bubble packed) with pharmacy Rx label attached

or

b. sent to camp in the original container with accurate, unaltered pharmacy Rx label

  1. For campers taking 3 or more medications/supplements per day,
  • They MUST be pre-packaged by pharmacy in a multi-dose system, where each med time for each day has one container/compartment for all medications to be administered at that time.
  • Only exceptions are for liquids, drops, powders and lotions.  Although these prescribed medications do not need to be bubble packed, they must have an Accurate Rx Label from the pharmacy.
  • Please request this at the pharmacy  as soon as possible and ask for bubble-packed, pill-packed, or other pre-packaged forms for their session at camp.
  • Most independent or local pharmacies will be able to do so for a small fee.
  1. Only send enough medication for the duration of camp. (3-4pm on Sunday to 9-10am on Saturday)
  2. Please adjust camper’s medication schedule to match camp’s medication schedule. (8A/12P/5P/8P)
  3. Please provide any specialty supplies necessary for the proper administration of medicine. Ex: syringes, test strips, tubing, droppers.

How much does camp cost?

The base fee for one week of summer camp is $390.

There is a $45 discount that we encourage everyone to take advantage of. The only requirements to receive the discount is to have everything submitted by May 25.  This includes,

  • A submitted online application
  • Fees paid, or if agency/county is paying, then authorization number given to Camp Daniel office.
  • Medical form, completely filled out, signed by doctor and submitted to Camp Daniel.
  • For new campers, we also need a photo of the applicant.

If an Agency/County/IRIS is paying-

  • there is an additional $20 for processing the invoice
  • $75 cancellation deposit must be made by applicant/guardian/etc. This will be refunded when camper attends accepted week of camp, or is denied.  The $75 deposit will be kept if applicant is accepted, but then cancels prior to camp. All campers are subject to $75 cancellation fee, but since county/agency does not pay Camp Daniel until AFTER camp, this $75 deposit must be paid prior to camp by someone other than paying county/agency/IRIS.

Spending Money

The amount of spending money that is sent to camp is up to you, but we recommend –

  • $20-$30 for the snack stand, and
  • $25-$75 for the gift shop.

Spending money is normally sent in with camp fee, but you may send at any time, or bring with to camp check-in.

I already submitted an application; can I go back and pay with credit/debit?

No, once an application is submitted, you are not able to go back into it to make any changes, including paying with credit/debit.

You will need to mail a check to Camp Daniel at W10541 Army Lane, Athelstane, WI 54104.

If I paid with credit/debit online, do I still need to fill out a Fee Schedule?

No, if you paid online, you do not need to fill out or mail in a Fee Schedule.

Where do I find the Fee Schedule?

If you did not print the fee schedule while filling out the application, no problem! Just click on the “Fee Schedule” button below. From there you can download and/or print.

Fee Schedule

How do I know if I need an invoice?

If your camper fee is being paid through your County, another agency, or IRIS, then the county/agency will probably require an invoice before they will pay the camp fee.  You should contact your caseworker to verify. If they do require an invoice, you will need to get an authorization number from them.  You then need to contact Camp Daniel with the authorization number.  You can call the office at (715) 757-3880 or email tonysr@campdaniel.org

Are there activities for people who don’t like sports, or aren’t physically active?

Camp Daniel prides itself on programming that gives ALL campers lots of opportunities for entertainment, fellowship, and activities.  Our campers have a wide range of abilities and interests, so our programming does as well.  We offer camp-wide recreation times throughout the week, where campers and counselors ALL participate to together in group games.  During all of those activities, we encourage everyone to stay engaged and cheer for their teammates.  There’s also sports announcers for play-by-play highlights, and in the background we play music to match the spirit of the activity.  This multi-layered system offers entertainment for those actively playing the game and also for those who are currently watching the game.

Camp Daniel offers typical summer camp activities like:  swimming, fishing, archery, basketball, paddle-boats, carpet ball, bocce ball, horseshoes, kickball, kayaks, nature walks, evening dances and volleyball.

Less physical camp activities that we feature are:  crafts, talent shows,  drive-in movie night, art contest, day spa, tea party, board games, and cardmaking.

Don’t forget meals!  Since we seem to spend so much time in the dining hall each day, the Camp Daniel staff decided several years ago to make each meal it’s own form of entertainment that everyone can participate in.  We now have Themed Meals for 2 breakfasts, 3 lunches, and 5 dinners!  Every meal is a different theme, each with themed background and sing-a-long music, costumes, meal, decorations and a host character. Many feature special musical guests and choreographed performances.  Theme meals change each year, so check out the packing list for this year’s Themed Meal list.
