Registration + Notification
When will I know if my camper was accepted to camp?
All camp applicants will receive emails regarding their application status no later than six weeks before the start of camp. Selected campers will then be required to fill out specific host camp registration forms before their acceptance is considered complete. Forms not turned in to the camp by the required date could lead to the loss of your child’s camp slot.
Are Operation Purple campers picked on a first come first serve basis?
