Camps and Events

Adventure Awaits

Welcome back, summer! It's time to CAMP! Registration is open for 2021 camps and events. We’ll have a ton of that traditional camp fun all while following the latest coronavirus safety standards from the CDC and state and local departments of health. Camp may look a little different in 2021, but it’s going to be a great summer!

Click here to access the online registration system.

Click on the title of the camp for more information and to download the welcome letter.  Camper grade is designated as the grade completed as of June in the current school year. When registering online for the first time, plan for the process to take 15-20 minutes to complete.

Register for camp at Lake Poinsett Camp, Storm Mountain Center, or Wesley Acres Camp on or before  April 30th, and receive the Ealy Bird discount is $5 off per night at camp. (Some exclusions apply.) So, a two-night camp would be $10 off.  If you register though our online registration system, the Early Bird price will automatically be charged.

Current COVID-19 safety guidelines include reductions to overall group size and camp capacity, so we will have less space in our summer camping events. If an event is full, you will be placed on a waitlist. But don’t give up! As COVID-19 conditions change we hope to adjust our capacities upward and register those on our waitlists for their chosen event. You will be notified no later than 3-weeks prior to the start of your event if you are moved from a waitlist onto the event roster. Please let our central office camp staff know as soon as possible if you decide to register for a different event and no longer wish to remain on the waitlist. 

Please see our FAQ section for answers to common registration questions. If you need further assistance, contact the camping office at info@dakcamps.org, or give us a call toll-free at 855-622-1973.
