Who Can Attend?
- The age requirement for campers without a parent or guardian attending is 10 years old (or going into the 5th grade) through seniors in High School (the school year beginning in the fall of 2019). Graduating seniors can still attend as campers, but must participate in all “camper” activities.

- All camper applications are subject to approval by the West Visalia elders and camp directors.
- Campers and parents need to be familiar with and in agreement with the rules and requirements of the camp.
- For those desiring to be staff, you must first register online and pay your enrollment fees. You will be contacted if you are approved as staff. Your registration fees will be refunded if you are not selected to serve. Please contact Cliff Sabroe if you have any questions. All staff must submit to a criminal back ground check and pass a child safety course online (the cost of these are included in your fees).
