What if my camper is put on a waiting list?

Once a session of camp is full for a specific gender, we will accept a limited number of waiting list reservations. After your camper is assigned to a waiting list, one of three things will happen: 1) If a spot opens up because another camper cancels or transfers sessions, we will contact you about moving to registered status. 2) If a spot does not open up, your camper may still be able to attend camp if he or she is willing to sleep on a mattress on the carpet or a cot in one of the rooms in their cabin. This is a common occurrence and is usually not a big deal to the camper because they still get to be at camp with their friends. If this is an option, we will contact you one to two weeks prior to your session of camp. 3) If we are over capacity, we will offer you the opportunity to transfer to another session of camp. Please note that a deposit is required to reserve your place on the waiting list, but it is fully refundable if your camper is not able to attend camp.

Where do I find information about packing, check-in, pick-up, etc?

In the spring, we will have this information and other important camp info available to you on your camper dashboard in the Forms section. We will send you an email when this information is available. At that time, please download the Important Info document attached as a downloadable form for a helpful guide before your camper joins us this summer.

How many camp bucks should I add for my camper(s)?

It is totally up to you! In our Snack Shop, your camper can purchase snacks and Youthfront merchandise and apparel. Camp bucks are also used to purchase games of paintball (West only) and Splash Park passes if they do not already have one. Snacks are generally $1-4, paintball is $7 per game, and all of our merchandise is $18 or less.

What is a Care Package and where can I buy one for my camper?

Care Packages are a kind of “goodie bag” that you may purchase for your camper, and it will be delivered to your camper during his or her session of camp. Care Packages contain a variety of items such as Snack Shop coupons, Youthfront apparel, and other gifts. Care Packages can ONLY be purchased through your online account. Starting in the spring, look for the Additional Items button on your camper dashboard for a link, the  Care Package descriptions and to add one to your account.

What is the Splash Park?

The Splash Park is our newest water activity on the lake that consists of giant inflatable elements to play on. These elements include a big trampoline and slides. For a small additional fee, your camper can have access to the Splash Park for their entire camp session.

What if I need to pick up my camper from camp before the session ends?

If you need to come get your camper before the end of their session of camp, we ask that you first come to our camp office (follow the signs when you drive into camp) to check them out. Please bring a photo ID with you. If the person picking up your camper is someone other than the guardian who signed the Medical Form, please have a written note from that guardian giving us permission to release your camper to them.

Will I receive any updates about what is going on at camp while my camper is there?

Yes! We send a daily email to you about the day’s activities. Please make sure that your email is up to date in your account to receive these emails.

Will my camper be in the same room as their friends?

We do not assign rooms. We do, however, commit to ensuring your camper will be placed in the same cabin with at least one of the friends listed as a requested cabin mate on your camper dashboard.

Can I pay for multiple campers in one transaction?

Yes. Once your campers are enrolled, go to the payment screen. You will have the option to pay for all of them in one transaction.

How will my camper take medication at camp?

We ask that all medications stay with our Wellness Director, centrally located on camp grounds. Prior to camp, we will ask you to fill out an online medical form for your camper and add any daily/regular medications with dosage instructions to your camper account. At check-in, we will have a station to drop off medications. Exceptions may include emergency inhalers and epipens. Please contact us for more information.

What do I need to do if my camper has food allergies?

We are very familiar with common food allergies and do our very best to keep your camper safe and healthy during their stay at camp. Our dining hall is completely peanut free, and we offer fridge space for campers that need to bring special food and meals. Please contact us at (913) 262-3900 or info@youthfront.com for details and assistance as you plan for your camper.

Can I send mail to camp?

We ask that you please do not mail letters or packages to camp. We often have mail arrive for campers after their session of camp ends. We offer an alternative that we call “Note to Camper.” Closer to the start of camp season, you may visit www.youthfront.com/notetocamper to write a message to your camper that will be delivered to them during their session. We also offer Care Packages for purchase. See more details in our question regarding care packages above.

If I need to switch my camper to another session what do I need to do?

Please call us at (913) 262-3900 or email us at info@youthfront.com, and we will transfer your camper and your payment to another session if there is space available.

How do I register?

You will be able to register your camper(s) for camp by creating an online account for your family. Click the “Register for Camp” button in the sidebar for a link to access or create your account. If you already have an account, you will be able to access it through that same link. If at all possible, use Google Chrome as your browser because it is the most compatible with our system.

Do I have to enter two guardians and an emergency contact?

No, you can list just one guardian, but you must add at least one additional contact as the emergency contact for your camper.

Why am I having trouble accessing or creating my online account?

Our system is not compatible with every internet browser and device. If you are using a tablet or a smartphone, please try to register your camper(s) on a laptop or computer. The best internet browser is Google Chrome. Other options include Firefox (31 or higher), Internet Explorer (10 or higher), Safari (5 or higher), and Opera (25 or higher).

What if I need to cancel?

If you cancel 2 weeks or more prior to your session of camp, you will receive a partial refund and forfeit $25 of the deposit. If you cancel after this time, the full deposit is non-refundable and non-transferable. The $3 camp registration fee is non-refundable but can be transferred to another session for the same camper only.

What is the registration fee?

There is a $3 registration fee that will be charged to all campers. If you decide to pay by e-check, this fee will be waived. You will see the registration fee on your invoice with a September date. This is an in-house reference and has nothing to do with the date for your camper’s session of camp.

What does it mean when sessions are marked as ``Reserved?``

When the schedule states “Reserved,” it means that a group (or multiple groups) have reserved all spots for that session. Non “Reserved” sessions often have a blend of public spots as well as groups that have reserved spots.  If you know that you are part of a group that has made a reservation,  you will need to contact your group leader  for the group ID.

Click on the “forgot password” button and you will receive an email with a temporary password that will be sent to you overnight. If you are in the system and want to finish registering, please call us at 913-262-3900 or go to info@youthfront.com, and we will be happy to reset your password for you.

Please use the grade that your camper will be going into in the fall, after the camp season is over.

Starting in late April, we will send you periodic updates about necessary forms and other details about your camper’s session of camp.

My camper isn’t part of a group, can she/he still attend a session?

Absolutely! Many campers attend camp with friends or even come by themselves. Our staff and program make it really easy to make new friends!

What discounts can I receive once I register for Camp?

If your camper attends as part of a reserved group of 16 or more campers, each camper will receive a $15 discount off their cost of camp.  You must have a Group Hold ID provided from your group leader in order to receive this discount.

If you have 3 or more campers from your family registered to attend camp, each camper after the 2nd camper will receive a $50 discount.  Those attending latest will receive the discount.  Please contact us at (913) 262-3900 if you qualify for this discount.

What are Early Bird Camp Bucks?

If your camper is registered on or before March 1st, they will receive $15 in camp bucks to be used in the Snack Shop to purchase merchandise, apparel, snacks, etc.  This money will be applied to the wristband that your camper receives at check-in.

What fun activities are available for my camper?

Some of our activities include: swimming pool, waterslide, Splash Park on the lake, the Blob, other lake activities (such paddle boats and canoes), zip line, sand volleyball, disc golf, basketball court, crafts, and all kinds of other games. In addition to all of this, we have themes each night, and encourage campers to dress up for our themed games and activities!

What are the sleeping arrangements like at camp?

We have air conditioned cabins at both of our camp locations. There are bathrooms and showers in each cabin, and campers sleep on bunk beds.

When should I expect notifications and communication about camp?

We rely on email to communicate important information with you, including registration confirmation, invoices, reminders, notifications, etc. Please make sure that the primary email in your account is up to date. We will begin to send you important updates and reminders in the spring before camp season begins. This will include notifications when new forms and information is available to you about camp as well as the opportunity to add Camp Bucks, Splash Park pass, Care Packages, and camp video to your account.

How do you pick your staff each summer?

We are blessed to hire many wonderful young people to help us make camp happen each year. Many of our staff used to be campers themselves! Beyond our full-time staff, we hire college students as our Summer Staff. We have extensive interviews and background checks for all of our staff hired to make sure that your campers have the most capable and trustworthy leaders during their session of camp.
