Camp Acorn Admissions Process

All Camp Acorn programs are full for summer 2019 and no longer processing applications. Please check back in January 2020 to apply for next summer.

Formal File Review

The Camp Acorn director reviews your completed application and required documents found in the application packet. The director determines if the applicant is accepted to camp or makes recommendations for an alternative therapeutic program if it is determined that Camp Acorn will not meet the needs of the applicant.

Completed applications are processed in the order in which they’re received.

PLEASE NOTE: No child will be screened or processed until ALL forms, including payment, are filled out and turned in. Completed applications will be processed in the order received.

If your child has never attended The Parish School or Camp Acorn before, a new camper application fee is required, as well as a deposit to hold your spot. We will review your child’s needs and determine if Camp Acorn is an appropriate program. If your child is not accepted into the program, all fees paid will be refunded (excluding the application fee).

Children currently in The Parish School's admissions process for 2019-20

The Camp Acorn application and deposit must be submitted to hold a spot for your child in the Camp Acorn program. (Select the appropriate application above to complete.) Please note that although the Camp Acorn team collaborates with The Parish School’s admissions team, a separate application and deposit is required for your child in the 2019-20 school year. Any documents submitted to Admissions or Camp Acorn will be shared, therefore, you do NOT have to submit documents twice. We will contact you should any documents be missing from your file. The summer screening will take place in conjunction with the admissions process and the new camper application fee will be waived.
