We’re glad you’re considering registering for Bible camp! We want your camp experience to be as stress free as possible.
How to Register Online
- Read the Important Information section below.
- Click the button above or start here.
- Select the name of the session you would like to register for and then click “register for this session.”
- Next create an account or login with your existing account.
- Then check off who will be attending the camp, or add additional people if they are not already listed.
If you register online you’ll get these benefits:
- Saved forms: When you register your camper again you won’t need to fill out the registration forms or health forms again. They will be filled in from last time, and you will only need to update the information and confirm that it is complete.
- Add-ons: You’ll now be able to apply for a scholarship, pre-order theme t-shirts or camp photos, and pay for canteen money all through the same process.
- Pay online: You’ll be able to have qualifying discounts applied automatically, see your balance in your account, and make payments online through credit card.
- Sponsorship Codes: If your church gives camp scholarships, suggest they ask us for a sponsorship code. You will be able to use that code to automatically apply church scholarships to your account
The price you see for camp is about half of what it actually costs for campers to attend camp. The cost for the average camper to attend camp is about $590. Our camps have traditionally been heavily subsidized by donations from our Friends of Red Willow, congregations, businesses, and families. In addition, we offer Scholarships if needed to make prices even lower for families. Red Willow Bible Camp is committed to offering a great camp experience to ALL youth, regardless of their ability to pay. Please consider making an additional donation when you pay for camp to help us to continue to offer quality camp experiences for all.
Many churches have camperships available for youth in their church. If you aren’t sure if yours offers them, it never hurts to ask!
If your church will be paying for some or all of your child’s camp fee, be sure to fill in the home congregation blank on the registration form. Some churches contact us for names of registered campers from their congregation, so having that information completed will help that process. If your church gives camp scholarships, suggest they ask us for a sponsorship code. You will be able to use that code to automatically apply church scholarships to your online registration account. Also, be sure to contact your church to let them know you’ve registered your child for camp at Red Willow and that payment should be made before the camp session begins.
If possible, please have your church mail a check before your child’s camp begins or bring the check with you to registration.
You can register online. Just visit the online registration site. We recommend all families use the online registration because it will save their forms, which saves them time when they register next.
When registering for summer camps, please register your child for the grade they’re entering.
Yes! You can use a credit card to pay off your camp balance through your online registration account. Visa, MasterCard, or Discover cards only.
