How to Apply

**COVID-19 Update: Camp Summit has made the difficult decision to cancel the remainder of camp sessions for 2020. The safety of our campers, families and staff is our number one priority. Given the direction the pandemic has taken this summer, we don't feel we can offer the type of camp experience our campers desire and deserve while following guidelines and maintaining all protocols.
