The second Open House will not include a Spaghetti Feed.

Required Forms: Your camper(s) Health Form(s) need to be completed before your child attends camp. You may have filled this out during registration, or you could have chosen to skip it to complete later. Either way is fine, as long as a current form is received by June 1stIf you believe that your child would benefit from an Individualized Camper Success Plan (ICSP) to address any additional accommodations or needs while at Camp, please email me at Kathryn@campfiresamish.org.

Camperships: Campership (Camp Scholarship/Financial Aid) funds are finite and will be funded on a first come, first served basis. Please email kathryn@campfiresamish.org or call the Camp Fire Office at (360) 255-7765 to request an application.
