ACCEPTANCE TO CAMP YOUNGBLOOD | APPLICATION PROCESS
New This Year: In order to make the registration process run more smoothly, the enrolling parent or guardian will fill out a short Camp Youngblood prescreening survey to determine eligibility. This is required for all applicants, even returning campers.
The process was put into place to make sure everyone meets the eligibility criteria before filling out the lengthy application. The criteria is based on the HACA/VHF Camp Youngblood Application and Admission Guidelines – you can find them here: Camp Youngblood_Program Guidelines
Camp staff will review each survey and those who meet the criteria will be sent a password to access the 2020 Camp Youngblood application. Those who do not meet the criteria will be notified as well.
The Camp Youngblood application process is open enrollment and not first come first served. This will allow VHF, HACA, and CHT the chance to review applications and manage the roster according to the application/admission guidelines. All application deadlines must be adhered to in order to be considered.
The application process is now open on the Camp Holiday Trails website – go here to find the link. The deadline for submitting applications is March 30, 2020, and all camp paperwork and medical assessment is due by April 30. These dates are earlier than in years past, which is why the application has opened earlier as well.
