Family Package

VA Camp’s Family Package is designed to make camp family-friendly, providing opportunities for both parents and all ages of children to participate at a discounted rate.

Parent 1

One parent participates as a full-time student, taking in the entire camp experience of chapel, classes, and choirs.

Parent 2

The second parent participates in a mixed choir. Childcare is provided during choir periods so both parents can attend.


Children (ages 7 and up) are part of children’s camp which includes choir and a musical skills class tailored for their age level. Childcare will be provided for children under age 7 during the morning and afternoon choir practices. 

Registration for Family Package is currently full.

If you’re interested in being on waiting list, please contact the VA Camp registrar. Kathryn Swartz:

    How do I sign up for the Family Package?

    There are two separate applications, one for parents and one for children.  Fees will be split between these two applications.  We suggest you complete the adult application first and follow the link to the children’s application.

    What age do my children need to be?

    These rates apply to children up to age 17. Children ages 18 years and older must apply as students.

    Where is the Family Package available?

    This family package is available at the Virginia Camp and the Ontario Camp. Plans may vary, so visit the Ontario Camp page for information on their family package offering.  Since it is offered at a discounted rate, family package applicants will not be eligible for other scholarships.

    Are Family Package particpants eligable for scholarships?

    We love to see families participating in camp! Please be aware, however, that the Family Package is offered at an already discounted price and we are unable to offer additional scholarship help to FP participants.
