Overnight Camp applicants must be ages 7 to 17 while at camp and be currently enrolled in 1st through 11th grade at a Benton, Carroll, Madison or Washington County school (or otherwise provide proof of residence in same counties) to be eligible to attend. *Overnight campers must be at least 8 years old while at camp to attend any of the 14 day sessions.
Day Camp applicants must be ages 6 to 11 while at day camp and be currently enrolled in Kindergarten through 5th grade at a Benton, Carroll, Madison or Washington County school (or otherwise provide proof of residence in same counties) to be eligible to attend.
Each applicant must submit a completed Application (including the Qualification Form), accompanied by the camp deposit, to be considered for acceptance into one of our sessions. Upon receipt of your completed Application and Qualification Form, CWE will review your application and place your camper into a session as space is available. Due to the large number of applications we receive, CWE reviews each application and selects campers based upon the information provided on the Qualification Form of the Application. We encourage you to complete as much of the Qualification Form as possible. Waiting lists are common for all sessions.

Tuition assistance at Camp War Eagle is based on family income level. Tuition rates may be viewed by clicking HERE. Tuition is due April 1, 2020. If tuition is not paid at least 4 weeks prior to attendance, camper(s) will be cancelled from their enrolled session(s) and waitlisted for following eligible sessions until payment is received.
A single $20.00 deposit is required for each camp family, regardless of how many CWE programs you are applying for this summer. The deposit will be automatically applied to your camper’s tuition. All deposits are fully refundable any time prior to April 1, 2020, as long as you notify Camp War Eagle in written form or email prior to April 1, 2020. After April 1, 2020, the deposit is non-refundable in the event of cancellation for any reason.
If your cancellation is made prior to three (3) weeks (21 calendar days) preceding the session to which you are assigned, you are not liable for the remainder of the tuition. All cancellations made within the three (3) weeks immediately preceding the session to which your camper is assigned result in a forfeiture of tuition.
If your camper has never been enrolled in a session for 2020, but remains on a waiting list, your deposit will be refunded at the conclusion of the summer unless we are notified in writing otherwise.
All tuition fees are due and payable to Camp War Eagle on or before April 1, 2020. Should you, for any reason be unable to complete fee payment by April 1, 2020, alternate arrangements must be made through the Camp War Eagle office. After April 1, 2020, all enrollments are subject to cancellation unless fees have been paid in full or unless alternate arrangements have been made with Camp War Eagle. Please note that if tuition is still due, any overnight camp store deposits will be applied to tuition.
All refunds will be issued in the same form the original payment was made. Refunds issued prior to attendance will be issued to the Primary Account Holder; refunds issued after attendance (such as store refunds and/or overpayment) will be issued to the camper.
Please note that Camp War Eagle is currently only open for children from Washington, Benton, Carroll and Madison counties in Northwest Arkansas, Overnight Camp for ages 7 to 17 and Day Camp for ages 6 to 11. Final payment, if required, is due no later than April 1, 2020.

Campers are also not permitted to arrive to a session late or leave while camp is in session. Exceptions are allowed at the sole discretion of the Camp Director and must be cleared in advance. No tuition or fees will be refunded due to late arrivals or early departures.
If your day camper is unable to attend day camp for any reason, you must notify CWE Day Camp Staff. Unexcused day camp absences may result in removal of your day camper from the program, and no refunds are issued for those in violation of the attendance policy. If your day camper will not attend day camp on a particular day for an appointment, please send a note ahead of time and when possible, remind the staff the day before.
