Apply to Camp

Camp @ ASC

At ASC we want our campers to grow. We want them to become more independent and more confident in their own. Over the course of one summer, ASC will host four, 10 day sessions filled with fun! See below to learn how to apply to come to camp!

Step 1

Ask a teacher, counselor, therapist or family friend to complete a Camper Readiness Assessment for your child.

This person should not be related to your child, and should know your child well enough to answer questions such as “this child adjusts well to new teachers/adults in their lives.” All answers are confidential and are only used to determine if your child is able to be away from home successfully for an extended period of time.

This assessment is located online here, or can be downloaded and printed here. We prefer you have them fill out the online form.

Step 2

The ASC team will review your child’s readiness assessment and if it is determined that your child is ready to come to a 10 day overnight camp, we will reach out to you and give you the link to register your child for camp.

We will also provide recommendations and support for you to help prepare your child for summer camp, for this summer if they are invited to attend, or for a future summer if they are not invited to attend.

Step 3

You complete an application on our online portal. This application takes between 30 minutes and 1 hour, and includes medication information, releases, and income verification.

We will review your application and let you know if you are approved within three weeks!

Step 4

We will keep in touch via email and text message about camp. Be sure programs@sunshinecamps.org is on your “safe” email list so our emails don’t go to your sp

ALSO, sometime throughout the school year (can happen before you apply), your family (your child and at least one parent/guardian) must attend at least one programming event before camp begins. Click here to learn more and to get on our mailing list if you aren’t already!
