ALL REGISTRATION IS ONLINE
(THERE ARE NO PAPER APPLICATIONS)
NOTE: If you have created a new login but did not link all of your existing family members, we have to do that for you. Just message us: firstname.lastname@example.org or call us: 352-728-5822.
ENROLLED IS NOT REGISTERED * CAMPER ASSISTANCE
THE WEEKS OF CAMP - DIRECTORS - SPEAKERS HAS BEEN MOVED TO THE HOME PAGE.
First time here? Read this before going to the registration page.
RETURNING CAMPERS: If you are a returning camper and did not receive an email with instructions for creating an account with our new online registration program please message us or call us before creating a new account.
NEW CAMPERS: Simply create a new account and follow the on-screen instructions. If a parent or sibling may be in our records, call or message us and we will link you together. If in doubt, give us a all.
SIBLING DISCOUNT: The sibling discount (2 or more in the same household) requires you to check a box to request it. It can be combined with the early registration discount. WE HAVE TO MANUALLY APPROVE THIS DISCOUNT. IF YOU ARE PAYING IN FULL AND QUALIFY AND DO NOT WANT TO WAIT FOR THE DISCOUNT APPROVAL - SUBTRACT $15. We look for these once per day and approve them.
GROUP DISCOUNT: Churches that plan to send ten or more campers can apply for a discount code for their campers. The group discount codes will work now, but have to be approved. Any automatic early reg discount will be removed. It can be combined with teh sibling discount.
PAY IN FULL DISCOUNT has been discountinued due to changes in our software. Instead, we have the early registration automatic discounts (which only requires a minimum payment to complete registration).
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO COMPLETE THE ONLINE REGISTRATION ALL AT ONCE. As you move through pages, your work is saved. When you log in again, you can continue where you stopped. Until all forms are completed including the health form the application remains "enrolled". The status does not change to "registered" until all forms are complete and a minimum payment is made.
PAPER REGISTRATIONS: Everything can and should be done online. However, if a surrogate is completing the online registration (or you phone it in), we have a parent signature page for the required signatures.
Groups that help parents to register their children may use these forms to complete the registration.
SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES: CAMPERS IN TWO OR MORE HOUSEHOLDS- If you are a returning camper/parent you will want to link the existing parent-child accounts. If you are a new family you will create the camper and parent records when you create your login account. You cannot create multiple logins for the same camper, but with your permission, we can link a camper (child) to separate parent/guardian logins. This would be so that either parent can make payments, complete documents, check on transportation, add spending money, etc. The second login could also be another relative. If this would be helpful then send us an email.
Archery remains a popular camp activity
The cost increase to $270.00 is a minimal ten dollars ($10). This is necessary in part because of the need for new camper management software. The board continues to strive to keep camp affordable and to make sure that even a sponsored camper can choose a premium activity (wall climbing) and take home a souvenir t-shirt.
REMEMBER: ENROLLED IS NOT THAT SAME AS REGISTERED
ENROLLED ("unsubmitted") means that you have started your camper application and perhaps even completed the entire application. This includes the health form and digital signature of waivers. If a third-party is completing the online registration, we will update the camper to registered with we receive the parent signature page.
REGISTERED means that you have completed your camper application AND provided the minimum payment.
If you mail the payment in or if we are notified that payment is being made by a third party, we can submit your application. Until the application is submitted - your child is not registered for camp.
This is a cloud based application. Each section or module automatically saves as you complete a page. If you should lose your connection or close your browser, your information should still be there. (New in 2017)
There is a toll-free help line that is especially helpful for returning campers to find their login information.
HOW DO WE REGISTER FOR TRANSPORTATION?The South Florida Van registration and payment is now included in the camper application under "Transportation". If you are returning to the "dashboard" to add transportation - look for "routes". You have to select the pickup/dropoff locations which charge you an estimated $10 each ($20 round-trip). This does not cover the actual cost of the transportation. It is a registration fee. Those funds are used for camper tuition assistance. The vehicles and drivers are provided as a donation/service to this ministry. There are only two pickup/drop of locations: PGA Blvd and Pembroke Pines.
NEW FEATURE: - For summer camp there is a camper profile module and health form module - these are required to complete your registration. The Camper Assistance module is NOT REQUIRED (OPTIONAL) but appears in the list of available forms for everyone. You must enroll (not register) your camper to see this form.
You can complete this form at any time. CURRENTLY - WE DO NOT HAVE A WAY OF KNOWING THAT THIS FORM WAS COMPLETED - YOU MUST FOLLOWUP WITH AN EMAIL TO TELL US THAT YOU HAVE APPLIED FOR CAMPER ASSISTANCE. Most camper assistance granted is for less than half of the total tuition. No camper assitance is provided for those that opt for premium activities (ski/tube). That would technically be a request for "free skiing" which does not make sense to us (but people argue for it every year). Either you need camper assistance (cannot afford camp - much less waterskiing) or you do not need camper assistance. Camper assistance is also no avaiable for two-week campers (same reason). THIS DOES NOT APPLY TO 3RD PARTY SPONSORS. It only applies to the Camp Horizon Camper Assistance Fund.
If you apply for camper assistance but do not submit your application (meaning that a minimum payment is made), you must notify us so that we can review you un-submitted application. Otherwise, we may not know that you have applied. We periodically look to see how many unsubmitted applications are there and send reminders to the email on record. If you get such a reminder then you need to respond.
The board of directors does not wish for a child be be denied a week of camp because they cannot pay.
To qualify for camper assistance you must complete the online form.
--- Camper assistance cannot be combined with any other discounts or credits..
--- Camper assistance is only provided for one week of camp. (2-week campers are not eligible)
--- Camper assistance may not be applied to premium activities (skiing, tubing).
--- If you accept camper assistance premium activities may not be purchased.
--- We have a limited number of scholarships available. Most are in the form of partial fee waivers.
Our ladies have been raising camper assistance funds since the fall by selling handmade items and selling chic-fil-A calendars. We appreciate all of our Camper Assistance Fund donors and encourage families that receive assistance write a letter of thanks to the donors.
