2023 Camper Registration

2023 Information

Camper/Friend Requests

Shrine Mont Camps encourages all campers to make new friends and our staff works to create an outstanding "cabin family" each week. Most campers come to Shrine Mont without a "best friend" at camp and leave with a cabin full of wonderful new friendships. However, we know that for some campers, having a known face can be a comfort. We will honor cabin requests that are (a) reciprocal - both families request - and (b) with only one other camper. Please list the name, if applicable, of the camper you would like your child bunked with. The other family must also list your child.

COVID Related Policies and Practices

COVID-19 continues to be a daily reality for us and our loved ones. The good news is that we are learning more and more, and are able to prepare ourselves for what this means. We have taken tips from our last year at camp and merged them into a policy for this summer that reflects both safety and more flexibility. Here are some things to know: 

  • Shrine Mont Camps highly encourages all camper families to test before arriving to camp, though this will not be required. The best way to stay safe at camp is to be healthy before it! We also encourage and recommend campers be vaccinated before coming to camp. 

  • Camps will continually provide masks and other PPE throughout our sessions (including washing our hands frequently!). Masking indoors will be optional, though camp will continue to make use of our many outdoor spaces. Camps will have test kits with us during sessions should someone request a test or exhibit symptoms. 

  • If your camper exhibits any symptoms before camp, or has been exposed to a symptomatic person leading up to camp, please contact the camps office. We ask that all campers be symptom free to enter camp. If your child is unable to make a session due to COVID, we will work to find other sessions during the summer for them to attend. 

  • In the instance of a positive case at camp: (1) If your camper tests positive for COVID-19, we will ask parents to pick your child up so that they can isolate and rest at home. (2) Whenever someone is exposed to COVID, we ask that they mask for 10 days after the exposure, and test on the sixth day after their exposure or if symptoms occur (per CDC guidelines). Campers will stay with us at camp unless they feel unwell or they test positive for COVID. (3) Parents will be notified in the case of an outbreak (3 or more cases) at camp, and if your camper has been directly exposed during session. 

  • Lastly, each summer is dynamic. Camp will continually evaluate this policy throughout the summer, and will communicate with families if there is a need for a shift in policies. Specifically, camp may alter our policy toward things like use of indoor spaces, masking requirements, or more, depending on documented COVID-19 cases at camp. If you have questions, please contact our director

Refund Policy

Our 2023 cancellation and refund policy can be found below.

Basic Registration Information

We are encouraging families to register online in 2023. If you need someone to walk you through registration, or would prefer a paper form, contact James Williams (

  • Campers must be within the specified ages on the first day of their camp.

  • Campers are expected to be present for the entire session. They may not come late or leave early.

  • A $75 non-refundable deposit per camper per session must accompany the registration. (This will be applied to your total fee.) Registrations without deposits will not be processed. Make checks payable to Shrine Mont Camps.

  • A health form is required as part of registration. This form is required for ALL participants and MUST be returned NO LATER THAN June 1, 2023!

    • You have two options for returning the health form:

      • 1) You may have a doctor sign off on the health form we provide, and return that on its own.

      • 2) You may return the health form (signed by a parent/guardian) along with proof of a recent doctor's physical examination (examination must be completed within the past 15 months).

Shrine Mont Camp is a wonderful experience for campers, however, there are some conditions that we are unable to accommodate. If you have questions or concerns regarding your child's health conditions, we strongly encourage you to contact James Williams prior to registering your camper.

  • The terrain at Shrine Mont is hilly and uneven, requiring some agility and stamina.

  • Inform us of necessary accommodations for dietary restrictions, health concerns, and any behavioral or developmental differences by May 3, 2023 so that we can prepare adequately.

People come to Shrine Mont to celebrate being a part of the family of God. The cost of camp should not keep any child from attending.

  • Scholarship forms are available online within the applicant portal.

  • Families are strongly encouraged to inquire of their clergy or senior warden about the availability of scholarship aid at the parish or regional level.

  • Scholarship requests will be responded to on a rolling basis, please fill out the information form as you register. Please contact James Williams to discuss any situation or concern.


  • Cancellations should be made in writing.

  • We cannot refund your deposit after you are accepted, unless The Diocese of Virginia cancels the event.

  • For cancellations made less than two weeks before the first day of camp, a 50% penalty will be assessed. Cancellations made more than two weeks before the first day of camp receive a full refund, minus the $75 deposit. One exception to that would be a camper who is sick or has been exposed to COVID. We will work with families to make sure that they receive a refund in that scenario.

It is the explicit policy of Shrine Mont and the Diocese of Virginia that possession or use of controlled substances, nonprescription drugs, alcohol, tobacco, firearms, fireworks and dangerous weapons is prohibited at all youth camps and conferences.
