    Open to: Students who are in Grades 6-8 this school year (2016/2017).

    Registration opened April 18, 2017.  As of April 27th, Camp is full.  Please read the important notes below before registering for the Waiting List.  

    Important Notes on Registration:  
    1. At this time, Camp Survive is only available to students who live within in the boundaries of the Diocese of Duluth. We apologize to those living outside of our diocese but space is limited and we have more students interested in the camp from our diocese than can attend. Thank you for understanding.  Last year we had a non-resident waiting list but we were not able to add anyone from that waiting list so we do not want to give false hope that your child will be able to attend.

    2.  When you register, you will make a password.  Please remember this password and the e-mail address you used to register so you are able to log back in to check your balance, make payments, and register for future events.

    3.  As you are completing registration, you are sent to the registration confirmation page.  Do not check the box within the yellow rectangle agreeing to the “Active Advantage Program” or it will sign you up for a 30-day "free" trial and automatically give you a membership that includes a yearly fee if you do not cancel in time. 

    4.  When you register, you will receive an automatic confirmation e-mail from Active.com.   IF YOU DO NOT RECEIVE AN AUTOMATIC REGISTRATION CONFIRMATION E-MAIL from Active.com, please e-mail Annette Merritt to make sure you are registered and we have your correct e-mail address and that your child is actually registered.  We cannot add more students after the camp is filled because you assumed the registration went through.  If you cannot find the confirmation e-mail, please check your junk e-mail box.  Thank you!  The Packing List/Confirmation Letter and Map to Big Sandy Camp are included as links in the registration confirmation e-mail.
      
    5.  A non-refundable $50 deposit is due at the time of registration.  The total cost is $255 (before July 14).  After you register, you will be able to make payments in your account at https://campsself.active.com/DioceseofDuluth. All payments are due by Friday, July 21, 2017. A refund of all but the $50 deposit and a $10 fee is available until July 14.  The deposit is non-refundable.  There are no refunds after July 14.  You may substitute someone else to fill your place until July 21.  After July 21, you may not have a substitute attend in your place.  Substitutes may be limited by gender as we get closer to the camp start date.

    6.  Students are not allowed to have their cell phone with them at Camp Survive.  Parents, do not send phones with your child.  Phones are available in case of emergency.  If you need to get a hold of us, there is a note and phone numbers on the packing letter you will receive as a link in your confirmation e-mail.

    AFTER READING THE ABOVE NOTES, you may register.  Registration opened April 18, 2017 at 10:00am and is now full. Register for the Waiting List HERE! 
    Please note:  Even though registration is full, please register for the Waiting List.  You will not be charged unless you are accepted to register.  You will be contacted if you are able to register.
