SAFETY IS OUR MIDDLE NAME!

In our friendly, unique community of campers and trained staff we comply with Camp Fire safety policies
and program standards. All campers participate in exciting, hands-on experiences that teach positive
ways to seek adventure. To ensure the well-being of our campers and to encourage a spirit of cooperation,
all youth and their families must sign the Behavior Agreement that addresses risk management.

The Camp Staff

All camp staff are carefully selected and attend a ten day training. We hire people who agree with our
philosophies of inclusion, diversity, safety and empowerment of kids. Background checks are just the beginning. Staff are expected to display compassion, flexibility, a good heart and good judgement in
creating an environment that is physically and emotionally safe for campers.

HEALTH CARE

We want to work with parents to provide care for each child. We depend on you to tell us about your child’s
needs. We will consult with you during camp if your child becomes ill or a concern arises. Camp Staff
complete basic First Aid/CPR and Alpine Tower Challenge Course training. A local doctor is always on
call. The Lane Fire Authority serves Camp Wilani and has both paramedics and EMTs.

HEALTH FORMS

A completed form is a requirement for all camp attendance. The form will be sent to you once your registration is complete.

FOOD SERVICE

Meals are nutritious and kid-friendly at resident camp. Vegetarian meals are available for campers whose
family requests this option on the health form. We may not be able to accommodate vegan diets or specific
food allergies. Parents should call the Camp Fire office to discuss their camper’s needs.
****Day Campers bring lunches from home each day.

HOHI a.k.a the HOLD ONTO HEALTH INITIATIVE

Each camper brings two or more healthy food items (see list in handbook ) to their camp session which will
be donated to the LOVE Project in Veneta, an agency of FOOD for Lane County. Youngsters may measure
their physical activity and number of steps as a health challenge at Day Camp.

CAMP DISCOUNTS

Discounts are given for multiple children in a family attending camp starting with the second child. If a
child has a buddy going to camp a discount will be given. A buddy for day camp must be in the same
grade and each must chose the other. Buddy requests are not guaranteed due to camp ratios and age
differences.

CAMP STORE

A camp store account may be set up for your camper during resident camp. The funds can be used by your camper during free time. At the end of the camp session the remaining funds will be returned.

REFUND POLICY

Session refunds are at the discretion of Camp Fire Wilani. Generally, payments will be refunded in full
(minus the non-refundable deposit) up to four weeks prior to a session, at 50% within two weeks prior to a
session at 25% within one week prior to a session. No refunds will be given once a session has started. If a child leaves camp early or arrives late, there will be NO refunds or pro-rated fees. Please allow 10—14 days to process your refund. A written request for refund is required.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE

Partial financial assistance may be available. Generous donations from individuals and organizations provide funding. Apply early. Please register for camp completing the registration form and sending
along the necessary deposit of $150/$65. All information requested must be supplied. Should the
award not meet the family need, the deposit will be returned. This is the only exception to $150/$65 nonrefundable deposit.

CAMPERSHIP DONATIONS

Gifts to the campership fund for children in need are welcome. Campership support means so much to
children who wouldn’t go to camp without it. To make a donation, please see the Payment line on the
registration form. Thank you for your generous gifts.
