CampersBy Check

Or you can send a check with your camper’s name and camp on the memo line to:

BYM
17100 Quaker Lane
Sandy Spring, MD 20860

Payment Deadlines

  • $50 non-refundable application fee and a $350 deposit ($400) per session is required upon registration. At TA, the deposit is $625. The deposit is applied toward your total camp fees.
  • May 15th: balance of camp fees is due. We do not collect any payments at camp. You need to have paid in full in advance or be on a payment plan.
  • Withdrawals of accepted applicants after March 15th will result in forfeiture of the deposit.

Refund Policy

The deposit is not refundable after March 15th. If the application for a prospective camper is withdrawn prior to May 15th, all tuition payments less the deposit will be refunded. After May 15th, no refund is available. Due to the fixed costs of running a safe and successful camping program, Baltimore Yearly Meeting Camping Program expects families to be responsible for the tuition of their registered child. Exceptions are made only if the camper is unable to attend BYM Camps for reasons of health. We may ask for a letter from the child’s health care provider.  In this case, tuition will be held over to be used the following year, less the deposit. An alternative option is a refund of half of the tuition (less the deposit). If you fill the spot your child has vacated, you will be relieved of this financial obligation. It is not possible to make any reduction for entering late or leaving early, except for withdrawal on account of illness incurred at camp. In that case, a partial tuition credit may be applied for the following year. There will be no refund if a camper is asked to leave during the season for an infraction of a camp rule or for unacceptable behavior or if a child is voluntarily withdrawn.

We believe that our programs work best and change lives most profoundly when campers are able to return year after year. We are also committed to serving children within the Baltimore Yearly Meeting. Because our camps fill quickly, your prompt response is important. We try hard to accept as many children as possible. Directors reserve the right to deny acceptance to any applicant.

Teen Adventure Acceptance Policy

Campers will be accepted on a first come first serve basis. Only returning campers (BYM camping program campers from either Catoctin, Opequon, or Shiloh) with no outstanding debt are considered. The Directors and Secretary have discretion to deny acceptance to an applicant, to give priority to an applicant for pastoral reasons, and/or to give priority to an applicant of color. New applicants to the program are considered only if extra spots are available after serving all returning campers.

Catoctin Medical Forms

Note: Medical information will be collected in the online registration process. However, Catoctin families will still need to have the Medications and Immunizations forms signed by the camper’s doctor.

Teen Adventure

The TA packing list is extremely important; please follow it closely.

TA Equipment List

Proper equipment is essential. Our goal is to provide exciting, challenging and positive outdoor adventures. However, the quality of your camper’s experience can be affected by the appropriateness of the equipment you provide. The misery caused by an ill-fitting backpack or inadequate shoes can color a camper’s attitude toward backpacking, hiking and camping, in general. Please help your teenager enjoy Teen Adventure! All items not listed in the Optional, or Do Not Bring categories are required. If a camper does not bring a required item, TA staff or parents have to drive to town to buy them—and they are often difficult and/or expensive to find at the last minute. For safety reasons, campers are not permitted on the trail without them. Parents—please check that your TA camper has packed all items on the list before departing for TA.
