6th Grade is Full

Our sixth grade unit (for girls going into 6th grade in the fall) is full.  We're sad to report we will not be accepting anymore registrations for this age group.

The LIA and PAIT programs are also full.

If this is your first time at Valley Day Camp click here for a document with more information about camp: First Timer Details Click Here

Camp Costs:
  • $110 for 1st-6th grade campers, LIAs - 7th graders, and PA Training (PAITs) - 8th-12th graders who have not taken our Valley Day Camp training before
  • $65 for PAs – 9th – 12th graders who have taken the Valley Day Camp training a previous year
  • $9 (campers and LIAs) or $12 (PAs) for optional additional camp shirt (so you don’t have to do laundry every day)
PA and LIA Details:
PA and LIA registrations are not processed on a first come, first served basis.  Incomplete registrations will not be considered until they are complete.

IMPORTANT: (new this year) On the day you mail your LIA, PAIT, and PA registration/application please send us an email telling us you sent it.  This is how we will keep count of how many applicants and who they are so we can close the programs at an accurate time.  Please put your daughter’s name in the subject line.  Postmark dates will determine whether date cut off has been made or missed.

It is imperative all LIAs, PAITs, and PAs and their parents read the blog post below on March 11th titled PA, PAIT, and LIA applications.

Registration:
Camper registrations (going into 1st-6th grades this fall) are processed on a first come, first served basis.  Your registration will NOT be processed until all forms and payment are complete. 

Camp is likely to fill quickly, the sooner your completed registration is received the better. Some units may fill the first day.  The registration deadline is May 1st or when the appropriate unit fills, whichever comes first.  In the past ten years we have always filled long before the deadline so please do not wait to get your registration in.
For camp purposes your daughter’s grade is the one she will be entering in the fall, not her current grade.  Forms are age specific; campers going into 1st-6th grades, LIAs (going into 7th grade), and PAs (both returning PAs and PAITs should use this form).  
You will need to complete ALL pages of the Registration Forms and submit full payment before we will begin processing your registration.  Please note that the registration form is multiple pages and you must return ALL of them before we can begin to process your registration.  

Campers may request ONE “buddy” for camp.  BOTH campers must request each other and both be in the same grade in order for us honor their buddy request and ensure their placement in the same unit together. 

We will email you by April 21st to confirm whether your daughter has a space at camp.

We realize it is inconvenient to have to wait to find out if you have a space in camp but we run our registration this way in an attempt to serve the maximum number of girls possible. It pains us to have to turn girls away! However, there are many factors that we have to consider to maintain our high program standards.

Many families find it convenient to have an extra camp shirt so you don’t have to do laundry every night of camp. Additional camp shirts are $9.00 for campers and LIAs.  They are $12.00 for PAs and PAITs.  Extra shirts are only available with your initial registration.

Checks should be made out to Valley Day Camp.
Sometimes registrations need more than one postage stamp.
Your complete registration should be mailed to:
Valley Day Camp
c/o Valarie Cole
3931 Monroe St.
Mandeville, LA 70448
This is not a typo and you are not reading it incorrectly.  Our camp registrar has moved to Louisiana so our registrations are all going there to be processed.  We are thrilled that she will be flying back in June to be here for camp.

I can't wait to have a blast with you at camp!

PA and PAIT Training Change












In an effort to make the PA and PAIT program accessible to as many of our teens as possible we are moving the date of the mandatory training to Sunday, June 25th from 1:00-6:00.  I have updated the details in the post below.

PA, PAIT, & LIA Applications

Our teen leadership programs (PA, PAIT, and LIA) are very important parts of our camp.  We believe that our teens are the future leaders of our community and our world.  We strive to give them a unique and fun leadership experience that will benefit them for many years to come. 

We wish we could take every applicant to our programs but many factors make this impossible for us to do.  If you want to apply for any of our leadership programs please read the information below carefully.

·         PAs and PAITs must attend the mandatory camp training day on Surday, June 25th, no exceptions (please note the date change).  Any PA or PAIT who does not attend the camp training will not be able to attend camp and no refunds will be given for the week.

·         Due to the nature of the leadership programs no one may leave early from camp or miss a day of camp except for an emergency.  If your schedule won’t allow you to participate EVERY day of the camp, Tuesday through Saturday for ALL the scheduled hours then please plan to apply another year when your schedule will allow you to participate fully.

·         Leadership programs have longer hours than campers.  They start earlier and stay later than the campers.  The exact times will be emailed as we get closer to camp. 

·         PA, PAIT, and LIA registrations are not processed on a first come, first served basis.  Incomplete registrations will not be considered until they are complete.  Once these programs are closed no registrations will be accepted for consideration.  We will use the date of the postmark to determine whether the registration was mailed before the closure of the program.


·         PA, PAIT, and LIA registrations also require an application that is completed by the LIA, PAIT, or PA herself and is mailed in with her registration (available online on March 25th).  The link to the application is below. It is available before registration is posted to give girls time to think about their answers.
