NOTE: Your waiver MAY cover all or part of the camp cost. Please check with your individual fiscal agent/case worker to determine coverage. You are responsible for payment if your Third Party Payer does not cover the cost of camp. All payments must be made by the deadline or your camper will forfeit his/her camp assignment, unless arrangements have been made with the AuSM Camp office.

If no opening is available, the deposit will be refunded. If you have questions about which camp best suits your camper, please contact AuSM at 651.647.1083 ext. 16.

AuSM reserves the right to limit the number of sessions in which campers can participate in order to maximize the number of participants in AuSM summer camp programs. Camp directors will approve Camp Discovery camper packets before registration in Camp Discovery is considered complete.
