Camper Eligibility Criteria

 We at Wayzata Community Church Summer Camp seek to serve individuals with disabilities who meet the essential eligibility requirement listed below. These criteria are necessary to ensure not only the safety of participating campers, but their ability to receive the maximum benefits of camp. We seek to serve eligible campers in the most integrated setting possible. All acceptances of applications are conditioned on campers meeting these criteria.

Camp Director Hilary Flynn, Parables Minister Rev. Leslie Neugent, and Camp Physician Dr. Lorene Rutherford reserve the right to deny applications of campers who do not meet these criteria. Camp staff also reserve the right to send home campers who are unable to meet them during their camp experience.

Questions? Contact or Kjerstee Miller at (952) 473-8877, ext. 224.
