Instructions for Completing Forms

- If you are unable to complete these forms using Word, please print the pdf for manual completion.
- Keep a copy of Part 1 in case it is lost or delayed in the mail.

Deadlines and Policies
Camp brochures will be mailed to AuSM members in January 2016. If you do not receive this mailing, the brochure will be posted on our website. You may download and print the 2016 AuSM Camp Registration form and return it to AuSM to register your camper or you may register online. To be eligible for camp registration, you must be a current member of AuSM at the time of registration and during selected camp attendance dates. You can join AuSM as a member when you register for camp if you register for camp online. Your registration and non-refundable deposit must be received at the AuSM office according to the following guidelines:
- Camp registration will be open from Jan. 25-Feb. 26, 2016 or until all camp slots are filled. Registration is on a first-come basis.
- Due to the high demand for residential camp spots, campers may attend one week of residential camp. Wahode Day Campers may attend one or both sessions of Wahode.
- Save money by registering early. Prices increase beginning April 1, 2016. Registration will be open until all camper slots are filled. Registrations received after slots are filled will be placed on a wait list.
- Deposit of $200 for all residential camps must accompany your registration.
- Deposit of $100 for day camps must accompany your registration.
- AuSM cannot be held responsible for lost or delayed mail, e-mail or faxes.
- AuSM reserves the right to place campers in the camp that is best matched with the camper's needs. If there is not space available in the appropriate camp, the camper will be placed on the wait list for an opening. If no opening is available, the deposit will be refunded. If you have a question about which camp best suits your camper, please contact the camp office at 651.647.1083 ext. 16.
