The quickest and easiest way to sign up for camp is to Register Online. Just follow the link to Campwise, our registration website, and follow the directions. Online registration requires online payment.
Our online registration service is the simplest way to get your camper registered- but if you are encountering problems, you can contact our registrar office by email or call 618.357.1809. A debit/credit card is required for payments over the phone.
Things to Consider as you Register
TWO campers may request to bunk together. However, they must be within one year of age AND both request each other on their Camp Registration Forms. All written requests are considered, but not guaranteed.
It’s fun to share a week of camp with old friends, and it may be easier for first-time campers to come with a buddy. Campers are encouraged to recruit their friends (and receive a discount for their efforts).
Camp provides great opportunities to make new friends and build new relationships. It is our responsibility to assign campers in the way we feel is in the best interest of the whole camp family.
Health or Dietary Issues
If your camper has significant health or dietary issues, contact our office via email before registering AND describe the issues on the registration form. We partner with parents to accommodate special needs whenever possible.
Discounts, Scholarships and Assistance

UCC Church Scholarships!
Many United Church of Christ congregations in the Illinois South Conference offer to pay a portion of the camp fee for their members. Check with your church!
There are several financial assistance options available. First, we recommend checking with your church. Many UCC congregations pay a portion of the camp fee for their members.
Additionally, any camper who qualifies for IL SNAP benefits or the medical card may also qualify for Title XX funding through the state of Illinois. All of the instructions for the Title XX application process can be found here in our Title XX Camper Letter.
As mentioned in the camper letter, this is a link to the Title XX Camper Registration form. And this is a link to the Title XX Camper Authorization and Information form. These are your key forms for Title XX, but remember to read our entire Registration page thoroughly as all DuBois Center campers must also complete a Health Profile and Pick-up Authorization form!
We will email your confirmation within 10 days of receiving your registration and payment.
If you register online, it’s easy to make payments to your account at your convenience. If you register by mail and would like to set up a payment plan, contact the Registrar at 618.357.1809 for assistance.
The $50 deposit is non-refundable.
If a registration is cancelled at least 30 days in advance of the start of the camp session, the full camp fee (minus the $50 deposit) will be refunded. When notification is received between 14 and 29 days, up to 75% of the total camp fee will be refunded. When less than 14 days’ notice is received, no refund is given.
In cases of sudden illness, accident or emergency, we can transfer your registration to another session if space is available. If all sessions are full, then a full refund is given.
