DEADLINES AND POLICIES

Camp brochures will be mailed to AuSM members in January 2017. If you do not receive this mailing, the brochure will be posted on our website.

To be eligible for camp registration, you must be a current member of AuSM at the time of registration and during selected camp attendance dates. You can join AuSM as a member when you register for camp if you register online.

  • Camp registration will be open from Jan. 30-Feb. 27, 2017 or until camps are filled. Registration is on a first-come basis.
  • Due to the high demand for residential camps, campers may attend one week of residential camp. Wahode Day Campers may attend one or both sessions of Wahode.
  • Save money by registering early. Prices increase beginning April 1, 2017. Registration will be open until all camps are filled. Registrations for campers received after camps are full will be placed on a wait list.

You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to ensure that your registration materials were received.
  • AuSM cannot be held responsible for lost or delayed mail, e-mail, or faxes.
  • AuSM reserves the right to assign campers to the camp that is best matched with the camper's needs. If there is not space available in the appropriate camp, the camper will be placed on the wait list for an opening. If no opening is available, the deposit will be refunded. If you have a question about which camp best suits your camper, please contact the camp office at 651.647.1083 ext. 16.
