6. What is it about this specific camp that makes Camp Augusta right for you and us? What excites you? What concerns you? What questions do you have? There are over 12,000 camps. We are one. Why us? The more you read the site and really speak from your heart and spirit here, the better your chances are.
Answer each of the questions. The average successful application is 3+ pages long, with the first two questions being the bulk. The reason is that we don’t want to know your social security number and other usual application stuff; we want to know you as a real, living, breathing human being. We don’t get a bunch of applications and decide; you are considered right away, and just as you. Consider this a journal-like entry that you’ll keep for years for its own value. Share your heart, mind, and spirit, as that is what you’ll be doing with the campers as well.
Send to: firstname.lastname@example.org with (a) your contact information and (b) how you heard about us, and (c) if you might be available for more than one summer or not.
Virtually always, you’ll hear back within 48 hours, and often sooner! If not, check in with us to make sure we got it.
