Event description

Description

This annual day camp for area 5th and 6th graders is always a hit!

Camp 911 is a two-day emergency preparedness camp. Attendance is limited and is on a first-come, first-served basis; pre-registration and acceptance is required. By pre-registering, you are putting you name on a list for final acceptance. If you are accepted, you will receive an final acceptance packet after July 1, once registration is closed.

IMPORTANT: FINAL ACCEPTANCE TO CAMP IS NOT DETERMINED UNTIL AFTER JULY 1. Acceptance letters will be sent to those accepted to this year's camp. Thank you for understanding our space limits.

Who is Eligible?

To be eligible for Camp 911, you must be:
• completing fifth (2016-17 school year) or a current sixth grade student in a Houghton or Keweenaw County school
OR
• a home-schooled student between the ages of 10 and 12.

Remember, Camp 911 has limited space so pre-register as soon as possible! Due to the popularity of Camp 911, no repeat campers will be registered this year.
