    Note also that a $60 Registration Fee is required for every week registered for for each child; that fee is applied to your remaining Camp Fee balance.

  • Space for the summer is limited, so we encouraged all interested parents and C.I.Ts to apply soon!

    The Counselor-In-Training Program is designed to give students who are between 14 and 15 years of age, and entering the 9th grade an opportunity to learn what it takes to serve on Camp Staff. 

    Space in the C.I.T group is limited, so be sure to apply early. 

  • Counselor Applicants must be 16 years of age as of July 1, 2024. Deadline to apply is Wednesday, April 17, 2024.

Frequently asked questions

We are always more than happy to help with any questions related to Registration, our Camping Program, or Staff. However, some questions are common, and may be answered more quickly by checking below

  • When does Camp Vinson Valley operate? What are the hours?

    Our Camp season begins the first week of June and runs through the last week of July, a total of (9) weeks. We are open Monday through Friday from 7:00am until 6:00pm. Our Camp program runs from 9:00am until 4:00pm. Times before and after that programming, Pre and Post Camp respectively, are offered for working parents free of charge!

  • Does my child have to come all summer?

    No! We have plenty of campers that attend only one week of Camp over the summer, and we program in such a way that even one week can be a full Camp experience. However, we do love our campers who are with us the majority of the summer. Regardless, whether its one week or nine, we are sure that your child will build relationships that last a lifetime!

  • Can my child come for just one day on a "drop-in" basis?

    Unfortunately we do not offer a discounted "drop-in" option for registration. All registration is done on a full-week basis; a full week's Camp Fee is required for each week registered regardless of attendance. All cancellations must be made prior to the Tuesday of that specific week or else a full Camp Fee will be charged. 

  • How much does it cost?

    $160 per week, per camper. $60 registration fee is due at the time of registration, and is deducted from total camp fee. 

    Our Session Fee is determined by a weekly rate, and is not prorated for daily attendance or adjusted based upon specific daily attendance.
