Everything You Need To Know

Camp War Eagle is currently accepting applications for Summer 2024. If you have questions regarding Summer 2024, please email us your name, camper’s name(s), address and email address to campwareagle@campwareagle.org, or call us at 479-751-8899. We are excited for another amazing summer at Camp War Eagle!

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.

No, each child’s application will be reviewed by Camp War Eagle. Children will be selected for attendance based on their Qualifications.

Each application will be reviewed by the Camp War Eagle enrollment committee and the children will be placed into a session based on their qualifications. Please remember that all campers are required to meet the criteria established by Camp War Eagle for admittance and, therefore, the detailed completion of the Qualification Form is extremely important. And, for those applicants with prior experience at Camp War Eagle, their performance and behavior while a camper will be a significant factor in determining their enrollment in a Camp War Eagle session.

Unfortunately, not all previous campers will be able to attend again in 2023. A certain number of spaces are reserved for returning campers and a certain number of spaces are reserved for new campers.

All children from the same home may not get to attend CWE 2024. Each child’s application is reviewed on an individual basis. Factors such as age and gender may limit CWE from accepting all siblings.

While CWE will try to get siblings into the same session (when desired), CWE makes no guarantee that all siblings will be in the same session.

Unfortunately, CWE cannot guarantee previous year waiting list children a spot based on their previous year waitlist status. Remember, each child will be selected to attend based on their qualifications.

Acceptance letters for early enrollment campers will be mailed in February, and your MyCWE dashboard will reflect placement. The dashboard and letters will also tell you which session your child has been placed in. Some children may be placed on a waiting list and notification of waitlist status will be updated and mailed in February as well.

After your application has been received and processed by CWE, you should receive notification confirming receipt. If you have not received notification a month after applying, please contact the CWE office at 479.751.8899 to confirm receipt.

Cost assistance at Camp War Eagle is based on family income. Camp pricing can be viewed HERE. Balances should be paid in full by April 1 preceding summer camp. If total balance 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 automatically be applied to your camper’s balance due. All deposits are fully refundable any time prior to April 1, 2024, as long as you notify Camp War Eagle in written form or email prior to April 1, 2024. After April 1, 2024, 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 your camper is assigned, you are not liable for the remainder of the camp fees. All cancellations made within the three (3) weeks immediately preceding the session to which your camper is assigned result in a forfeiture of camp fees paid.

If your camper has never been enrolled in a session for 2024, 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 fee balances are due and payable to Camp War Eagle on or before April 1, 2024. If for any reason you are unable to complete fee payment by April 1, 2024, alternate arrangements must be made through the Camp War Eagle office. After April 1, 2023, 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 camp fee balance is still due, any overnight camp store deposits will be applied to the camp fee balance.

Refunds issued prior to attendance will be issued to the Primary Account Holder in the same form the original payment was made; refunds issued after attendance (such as store refunds and/or overpayments) 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, 20202423.

Camp War Eagle does not accept cabin requests. Children are grouped together in cabins based on age and grade.
