REGISTRATION

To register for camp, you will find a link to CampDoc on our website under the “Youth Camps” page. You will be required to set up a profile for each of your campers if you have not done so in the past. If you have previously registered your child, you should be able to sign in to their pre-existing profile to view the dates/camps they are eligible for the coming summer (Please note, S.A.L.T. participants will need to apply before registering). Registration requires a non-refundable $50 deposit. The remaining balance should be paid no later than two weeks prior to the camp session. During the registration process you will have the option to add money to your snack shop account (campers are not able to use cash in the snack shop). During the registration process you will need to have health information available.

COSTS AND REFUNDS – A $50 non-refundable deposit is required to register; this will hold your child’s spot for camp. The remaining balance is due prior to check-in on the first day of your child’s week of camp. If your child is not able to attend camp, you may receive a refund, less the deposit.

CABIN BUDDY REQUESTS – During registration you may request a cabin buddy for your camper. Please do so at least a week in advance of when your child’s camp session starts. We will do our best to honor your request if it is logistically possible.

SPENDING MONEY – Campers get to visit the Snack Shack or Gift Shop as a cabin group nearly every day while they are at camp. Money for their store account can be paid in advance online when you register or added at check-in. Campers are encouraged to turn in any and all cash they may have as Victory cannot be held responsible for any lost or stolen funds. At the end of camp, any remaining money will be refunded to the credit card listed on the child’s CampDoc registration profile.   

PHOTOGRAPHS – Many pictures of campers are taken throughout the week. It is our assumption that most parents love to see their children in camp brochures, on the website, or in slide shows. If you do not wish your child’s picture to be taken, be sure to make note in the “Authorizations” section during the registration of your camper.  

AUTHORIZATIONS – Only persons authorized by the primary user on a camper’s CampDoc account may be permitted to pick them up at check-out. If you need to make any changes to authorizations or add an authorized adult, please submit your request at least 24 hours in advance in writing by emailing our registrar at annao@vbcalaska.org.

 

CHECK-IN

CHECK-IN TIME – We are no longer providing bus transportation, therefore on campus check-in begins at 4pm on the first day of your camper’s session. If you have questions or need directions, please contact our camp office (907-745-4203).

FORMS – All forms should be filled out in CampDoc prior to your arrival at camp.  Covid Pre-Check must be completed 72 hours in advance.  

 

CHECK-OUT

Check out time is at 3pm on the last day of your camper’s session. Signing out your camper requires a government issued state ID and signature of an authorized adult. Only parents/guardians can add or change any of the authorized adults listed for camper pick-up. If anyone needs to be added to the authorization list, please submit these changes to Victory at least 24 hours in advance in writing to our registrar at annao@vbcalaska.org

 

SAFETY

During a week of camp, Victory is a closed campus for security reasons while we have campers on our grounds. If you wish to visit your child during their camp session, please call and check with the main office at least a day in advance to schedule a time. All visitors must check in at Miracle Lodge and wear a visitor’s badge during their time on campus.

 

HEALTH/MEDICAL

A certified health care provider is on site to address the health and safety concerns of each camper and to supervise medication distribution.

PRESCRIPTION MEDICATION — If your camper needs to take medications at camp you must turn them in at check-in to the camp nurse. All prescription medications must be in a pharmacy labeled container with the camper’s name on it and will be dispensed per the instructions on the bottle. Loose pills will not be accepted. 

 

OVER THE COUNTER MEDICATIONS: Any over-the-counter, non-prescription drugs, vitamins or herbal supplements provided by the parents cannot be dispensed by the camp’s nurse, nor can it remain in your child’s possession while at camp. Victory stocks certain non-prescription medications to be dispensed on an as-needed basis. By law we must use our own supply. Please notify us via your camper’s CampDoc profile of any medications you DO NOT want given to your child.
