Enrollment for Summer 2022

We are excited for campers to sign up for another summer of “wonderful, wonderful fun” at Camp DeSoto!

Priority registration for returning and waitlisted campers will begin on September 22nd. The application will open for first-time applicants on October 1st, and at that time we will begin enrolling all campers on a first-come, first- served basis.

  • September 22-30 : Priority registration period for returning and waitlisted campers from summer 2021
  • October 1: New camper registration begins!

We will send out email reminders ahead of these important dates, so let us know if you’d like to be on our registration mailing list. To sign up, simply click the link above to access the online registration form. You can pay your deposit online with a credit card or echeck, or you can mail a check once you’ve completed the application.

First Come, First Served

Applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis according to the date on which your application is received (provided your deposit payment is received within 10 calendar days of the application date.) We do reserve spots for new campers, so we will still have spaces left after the priority registration period.

Deposit Payment Required

We must receive your deposit payment of $825 within 10 days of your application in order to hold your spot. Any application for which we have not received a deposit payment after 10 days will be invalid.

The total fee for each session is $5650.


If you have any questions, please do give us a call!

What to Expect When you Apply

Once you have completed the online application, you should receive an e-mail confirming receipt of your application within a few minutes. It takes us a few days to process camper applications. You can expect to hear whether your camper has been enrolled within one week. We will send an email to confirm your camper’s enrollment or let you know she has been placed on the Waiting List.

If you choose to pay your deposit payment by e-check or credit card, your card will not be charged until we officially enroll your camper (this means the charge will not immediately show on your account once your application has been submitted.) If your camper is placed on the Waiting List, you will not be charged for the deposit amount unless and until she is officially enrolled.

If you would like to speak with a director about the registration process or any questions you have about DeSoto, give us a call or send us an email - we’d love to talk with you about sending your daughter to DeSoto! We know you may have questions, especially if you are new to Camp, and we would be happy to answer them.

I wanna go back, I wanna go back to Camp DeSoto!

Registration Policies

All applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Space is determined by age group and hometown, in addition to overall capacity. Campers must be between 8 and 16 years old (currently in 2nd-10th grades) and able to attend Camp for the entire session (with the exception of absences not to exceed 72 hours) to be eligible for enrollment.

You will receive a confirmation e-mail when your camper has been accepted and confirmed.

Deposits & Payment Schedule

The total cost for each session is $5650.

Each camper application must be accompanied by a deposit payment of $825. You may pay with a credit card online or by calling the Camp Office. You may also pay by check or echeck.

Please note that if you pay the deposit by check, we must receive your check within 10 days of the day you submit an appliaction in order to reserve your camper’s spot. If we do not receive your deposit check within 10 days, the appliacation will no longer be valid.

After enrollment, the deposit (less a $100 application fee) is refundable until February 1st.

A second payment of $825 is due on February 1, 2022. This amount is refundable through May 1st. The final balance is due on May 1, 2022. There is no refund for cancellations after May 1st.

The Waiting List

If your child is placed on the waiting list, you will be notified by e-mail. We will hold her application until a space opens up. You will not be charged unless and until she is enrolled. In the unfortunate event that an opening does not become available before camp begins, the deposit payment will not be processed and the camper will be invited to take advantage of priority registration for summer 2023.

If you have any other questions about registration, please e-mail or call the Camp Office at 256-634-4394.
