Frequently Asked Questions

Camper Applications

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.

Campers

Follow the Packing List.  Also include all medical devices used including wheelchair, charger, water for c-pap, communication device, extra batteries for hearing aid, all medications etc.

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.

The base fee for one week of summer camp is $345.

There is a $45 Late Fee for completed applications after the May 20th deadline.  A completed application 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.

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:
    • pre-packaged (bubble packed) with pharmacy Rx label attached OR
    • sent to camp in the original container with accurate, unaltered pharmacy Rx label
  3. 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.

Prayer- Pray that God will give us emotional strength. Summer Camp has always been our reward at the end of a long year of hard work preparing to best serve our campers and volunteers. We will miss the recharge that each life-changing summer brings.  Pray that God will bring forward donations to help get us through these trying times.  We are facing an unprecedented financial strain as an organization and as individuals, as our missionaries have lost donations and the income from odd jobs that help make ends meet. 

Donation- Please consider a donation of any size to help us make up for a financial shortcoming of 20%. We are dedicated to stewarding these resources wisely to continue to provide the best programs and opportunities for our campers as we serve you in the future. 

While we are not able to meet in person this summer, we are working on ways to gather online with our Camp Daniel family. We are hosting weekly video calls via Zoom every Wednesday at 3pm CT to help connect while social distancing. It’s in no way a replacement of our time spent together at a week of camp, but we are already thankful for the campers and volunteers who have joined these online meetings. Head to campdaniel.org/events/zoom for more information.

All scheduled work days at Camp Daniel are cancelled until further notice. Additionally, the campus is closed to all volunteers and visitors until further notice. Camp Daniel will monitor the current guidelines regarding the coronavirus and make decisions about opening the campus accordingly. Updates will be found on Camp Daniel’s social media accounts and on the homepage of  campdaniel.org

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