- The early bird deadline will be extended to all payments made (or postmarked) by July 1, 2020.
- We are putting a temporary hold on new registrations. We will have a smaller than normal maximum number in each Kamp group (kids/kats) due to social distancing requirements in the cabins. You can sign up on our registration link and be put on the wait list. Once we finalize cabins and staffing we might be able to bring on a few more campers in each age group. We do expect to reach our reduced capacity this summer.
- IMPORTANT CHANGE –NO BUS THIS YEAR: There will be no bus back to Birmingham on Friday Aug 7. All campers must be picked up from Camp Michawana on Friday. We will send out more specific details to our registered families in the next few weeks.
May 3, 2020: As of today we are planning to still have Kamp this summer. The situation is fluid and we will keep everyone updated as the situation unfolds: Please note the following (and make sure to read the Kamp 2020 FAQs we put together):
- We have temporarily suspended all payments for Kamp 2020. Please register now and you can pay later. We will update all registered families in June when hopefully we can resume accepting payments.
- We will be extending the early bird deadline. More on that as the time we resume payments.

Camperships: Financial assistance is available – Please contact the Kamp Director, Tim Springer Jr at email@example.com to discuss financial assistance.
When space permits we do offer a partial week option for campers entering 3rd or 4th grade. This allows campers to give camp a test run and stay for 2 nights. See our Frequently Asked Questions page for more information. We give preference to full week campers and only bring on explorer campers if we do not reach capacity. . Campers wishing to register as an explorer will initially be placed on a waitlist and we will take explorers off the waitlist as space permits. The explorer program costs $220 for the half week. There are no eligible discounts for the explorer program. If you have any questions about this program please contact us.
PLEASE REMEMBER registration from March 1, 2020-March 31, 2020 is for Redeemer Members and returning Kamp families only!

STEP 1: REGISTER
Please note as of June 22 everyone who registered will be placed on the waitlist and campers will be added as beds are available. Click on the “register now” button below. You will be redirected to CampDoc (our online registration portal). You will be prompted to create an online account. (If you have attended camp before, please use your existing account as it saves your information from year to year).
Please make note of the following
- You will be prompted to register your child for KID KAMP (3rd-6th grade) or KAT KAMP (7th-9th grade) depending on their grade level (it is based on the grade they will enter in Fall 2020). Everyone attends camp at the same time, same week – we have these two age groupings to break down cabins and certain activities by age.
- Once you have registered for Kamp you will see all the required forms on the right hand side. The deadline to complete all forms is July 1, 2020. HOWEVER we ask that you fill out the forms as soon as possible. At the minimum please fill out the general information and parent contact sections immediately upon registering your child.
- Cabin Buddy requests are made in the “general information” section – the sooner you fill out the forms and complete your registration, the better chance your buddy request will be honored.
- The Camp Doc website will ask you if you want to purchase Camp insurance — this is like Travel Insurance. YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO PURCHASE THIS. This camp insurance is not run by us, but rather is a program offered by Camp doc (our registration software company). We do not offer this insurance or manage it in any way. You are free to purchase it if you wish, but please note that we do not endorse it or manage it.
