REVISED 2021 SESSION DATES

To allow for the most campers to experience Camp War Eagle summer camp, we have revised our 2021 summer session schedule. We will be shifting the start date of summer camp sessions back one week and offering 8 one-week sessions at overnight camp to provide more time between the end of the school year and the start of camp. This also allows us to provide one more amazing Camp War Eagle Overnight Session. Our team is working to update our system with revised dates. Families who have already applied will receive notification of enrollment status in late February or early March.

Please click here to see our revised Summer 2021 Session dates!

We are prepared to work with families who need to switch sessions due to date changes or conflicts, so please email [email protected] with any questions or issues.
