Offering campers a unique camp experience!

Please note:  Our registration site will be starting monthly server maintenance on the 1st Thursday of every month. This will take place from 5:30-6:30 am EST starting on August 4th. During that brief time, the site may be offline.

Campers for summer camp should be between the ages of 7 and 16, both developmentally and chronologically. Campers for family weekends should be between the ages of 5 and 16, both developmentally and chronologically.

 

Camp Boggy Creek has an extensive multi-step application process to ensure that all of your child’s needs are met at Camp.

How do I register my child to attend Camp?

Programs at Camp Boggy Creek include week-long summer sessions as well as family retreat weekends, and each includes full medical coverage with on-site professionals in the illness specialty being served.

 

The Camp Boggy Creek experience is more than a fun-filled getaway. It helps children and their families to better cope with the day-to-day challenges they face in dealing with serious illness.

Step 1

Complete the Online Camper Application. If you do not have access to the Online Application, please contact your Camper Recruiter. After you have completed the online application, you will immediately receive an email with the following:

  • Camp Medical Form

  • Disease Specific Medical Form (for Arthritis, Craniofacial, Diabetes, Epilepsy & Spina Bifida the Disease Specific Medical Form is part of the application to be completed by the parent/guardian)

*If you do not immediately receive an email, then you haven’t completed the online application.

Step 2

Have your child’s specialist or treatment center complete, sign and return the medical form(s) you received when you completed your application. We will also need a copy of the most recent office/clinic notes. Please also send in a copy of your child’s immunization records to complete your application.  (Reminder from Step 1:  the Disease Specific Medical Form for Arthritis, Craniofacial, Diabetes, Epilepsy & Spina Bifida is part of the application to be completed by the parent/guardian).

Step 3

Have your child’s specialist submit a copy of the camper’s current office/progress notes to the Camper Recruiter. 

 

  • Steps 1-3:  Forms and current office/progress notes must be received before your child or family application can be reviewed.

Step 4

You will be notified by Camp Boggy Creek of your child’s acceptance status by the timeline listed in the Camp schedule. Please remember, even though we try to accommodate every child who applies, a submitted application or an online application reservation acknowledgement does not guarantee acceptance. Your doctor, nurse or foundation cannot promise acceptance. Applications are not accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. All completed applications will be considered even if late or past the indicated timeline date.

*Summer camp is for the child with the diagnosis only.

 

Family Retreats are for the camper with the diagnosis and their immediate family members only.
