Camp Ronald McDonald at Eagle Lake|July 11, 2016 to July 16, 2016 |7-70+ years| 800.00
Registration is now open!
Located in the beautiful Lassen National Forest just outside of Susanville, California, is Camp Ronald McDonald at Eagle Lake. Amplify Life has been partnering with this wonderful site for years to deliver campers a week of traditional camp activities that includes arts & crafts, hiking, fishing, canoeing, sports, swimming, talent shows and campfires. It it's one-of-kind experience as unique and special as our special needs campers.
Registration is $800 per session. Please be advised that we implemented a rate increase this summer. We have not experienced a rate increase in many years, although we have incurred rate increases from our contractors. While registration is $800 per session, Amplify Life subsidizes every camper $250 by absorbing this amount for every camper registration. This subsidy is reflected in the registration fee.
A very limited number of scholarships are available to families who qualify. In order to be considered for a scholarship, you must complete a scholarship application according to the scholarships policies and guidelines, attach a copy of your previous year's tax forms and proof of income, along with a minimum deposit of $100. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
All forms are required to be updated annually. The only exception being the image release. This is your responsibility. Campers without ALL forms current will not be approved for camp.
