Who can attend camp?
Registration is open to girls ages 12 to 18 of any religious affiliation who agree to uphold the standards of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Girls must turn 12 years old by July 12, 2021. ( 11 year olds may attend with special permission. Please email or call our office.)
We have changed our scholarship processes. We will no longer be giving away full scholarships. We are asking for a minimum of $150.00 plus the registration fee to be paid by each girl (we need you to officially register so we can make sure a spot is secure should you receive a scholarship).
Those that are in need of a partial scholarship (anywhere from $50.00 - $350.00) should fill out an official 'Scholarship Application and Financial Need Form' that can be found HERE.
If you are granted a scholarship, you will be notified and we will change the amount due on your registration. If you do not receive a scholarship and are unable to attend, please let us know ASAP and we will refund you the 150.00 deposit and open that spot for another girl. Deposit and forms must be turned in by May 1st 2021 to be considered.
Accomadations & Roommate Requests
All participants will stay at the beautiful Springhill Suites Marriott at Thanksgiving Point.
Our policy is that all girls requesting to room together must be within one grade or one year in age of each other. You may only request one roommate. Each girl must indicate her roommate request on her registration form.

In this 30 minute program the camp director, Barbara Barrington Jones, will touch on highlights of the week and how you can take this experience home with your daughter.
