Registration Updates!

We were blown away by the response to our summer offerings this year! Some camps are already at capacity, and there is still room in quite a few others!

You asked, so we listened: YES you CAN visit us more than once this summer!  Campers can now be registered for multiple camp sessions!  We were limiting registration to one camp per camper, but now that we are closer to summer, all of our available slots are open to all!  Our full listings are found online.

Remember, we have two extra options this year: Family Camp and DuBois Delivered!  We are excited to offer a mailed version of our summer program to you — and we are certain you will enjoy it!

COVID-19 Precautions 

As guidelines and requirements rapidly evolve, we continue to monitor and adapt our protocols to ensure the level of safety and diligence you have always expected from us.

DuBois Center will be opening under the strict safety protocol recommendations of the Outdoor Ministry Association, the American Camping Association, the Center for Disease Control, and State of Illinois guidelines and restrictions. We are closely following the guidelines and tracking new information as it becomes available.

We recently released our plan for this summer, and can be found in its entirety on our website.  The overall plan may change as requirements continue to evolve, but rest assured that we are dedicating the needed time, energy, and resources into making this summer both fun and safe.

Continue to check in! 

As the summer kicks off, be sure to continue to follow us on Facebook , Instagram, and for pictures, updates, and stories!

We hope that you are as excited to return as we are to have you back!

Registering for Camp

Register Online!

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.

Having trouble?

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

Cabin Buddies

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

Early Bird Discounts

Register early between March 4 and March 18 to save $20 on full-week sessions and part-week sessions. Non-refundable deposit of $50 confirms your camp registration.

We will email your confirmation within 10 days of receiving your registration and payment.

Payment Plan

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 canceled 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.
