I'M REGISTERED...NOW WHAT?

We're so glad you've registered for camp and we are looking forward to a great summer at Inspiration Point! The information below will help you make plans for your time at camp. Additional information specific to your stay will be sent via email in the weeks leading up to camp starting. If you have questions please email us at office@ipoint.org. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Need to complete or update a health form?

If you haven't completed a health form or need to update your camper's information, click here to download a camper health form. You can also complete your health form online by signing back into your online camper account. Completed health forms can be emailed to office@ipoint.org or mailed to 16157 Co Hwy 65 Vining, MN 56588

Medication Form
If your camper is bringing medication to camp, they will need to fill out a medication information form. To streamline the registration process, we ask that all forms are completed prior to arrival at camp. Please put completed forms, along with all medication, in a ziploc bag with the camper's name on it. At registration, the ziploc bag will be turned in to the Camp Nurse who will store and administer medication as indicated on the form. At the end of the camp week, any leftover medication will be returned to the camper.

***ALL Prescription MEDICATIONS NEED TO BE IN THEIR ORIGINAL BOTTLES.***


Check-In
Registration is open on the first day of your camp from 3-5 PM. We recommend arriving by 4:30 PM so you have time to settle in.

Check-Out/Closing Program
Parents are encouraged to attend the Closing Program which will be at 10:00 AM on the last day of camp. All campers must be picked up by 10:45 AM. Campers must be signed out by an approved adult before leaving. You can complete a "Ride Home Permission Form" by logging into your online camper account. If you choose to put a list of people approved for pick-up on the form, make sure that parents/guardians are on that list as well. Campers without a completed ride home form will be approved to leave with any adult they know.

Camper Balances
To avoid long lines during registration, we ask that all camp balances be paid in full two weeks prior to arrival. You may complete payment online by logging into your online camper account or by calling our office at 218-338-5379. Store deposits can also be made prior to camp arrival over the phone or online
