Camp ENERGY 2018 will take place during the week of August 5-10, 2018.

WHO IS CAMP FOR?

  • Youth interested in improving their health and happiness.
  • Youth willing to participate in camp activities and work on healthy lifestyle changes.
  • Youth between the ages of 11 and 18 (must have completed 5th grade and not yet graduated high school).

There is a fee of $200 which covers everything needed for the stay, including lodging in air-conditioned cabins, meals and snacks, and supplies for activities. Financial aid is available for those in need.

CAMPER APPLICATION PROCESS

Complete the Camper Application online here:

2018 APPLICATION

  1. If there is availability, we will email you a medical form that needs to be completed by your child’s doctor based on a physical within a year from camp.
    • Ask your doctor to fax three documents to Camp ENERGY Medical Director, Jennifer Franceschelli, DO at (570) 271-6852
      • (1) 2018 Camp ENERGY Medical Form (we cannot accept other forms)
      • (2) A copy of the camper’s immunization record from the doctor
      • (3) The camper’s health insurance card
  2. After we receive these three forms (we need ALL THREE!), the application will be reviewed by the Camp ENERGY staff. The final decision is held at the discretion of the Camp ENERGY Medical Director. The primary goal of this process is to ensure that we can appropriately accommodate all campers and staff in a safe manner.
  3. The Camp Dietitian will review any food allergies at the time of the application process. She may call with any further questions or talk to camper parents on arrival to camp. Please be sure to include any details about specific allergies, including past reactions, in the camper application. We work hard to ensure that the campers are not exposed to certain foods but as in the real world, we cannot guarantee that the risk of exposure is zero percent.
  4. After we have medical approval, we will follow up with your final acceptance to camp, and request for consent forms and payment. Consent and payment is due 14 days after your acceptance into camp. Your spot will be reserved after we receive your consent form and payment.

Refund Policy – After payment has been made to Camp ENERGY, we are unable to provide refunds. Receipts are available upon request.

ATTENDING CAMP

  • Medical
    • Camp ENERGY is a rigorous camp and many activities are held outdoors. Therefore, if a camper has required an albuterol inhaler in the past one year, then we ask that you please bring this inhaler with them to camp.
    • All medications should be in their original pill bottle for proper identification for the medical staff. If there are multiple medications then you may use a pill box but we ask that you bring the pills with original bottle to the check-in so that pills can be properly identified/verified with staff.
  • Lodging
    • Cabins are air conditioned.
    • Campers sleep in twin sized bunk beds. We recommend bringing a sleeping bag or twin-size bed sheets and a blanket.
    • Campers use a shared bath house.
    • NOTE: Cell phones are not allowed – we want to enjoy a ‘disconnected’ week!
  • Travel
    • We do not provide transportation to camp, but can help connect you with other campers in your area. Camp is held at Camp Victory in Millville, PA (approximately 150 miles northwest of Philadelphia).
