Camp WANNAGOAGAIN! 2020 is canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
After careful consideration we have decided to cancel camp in order to assure the health and safety of all campers, staff and volunteers in abiding with the social distancing recommendations.
Enrolling a Camper
To enroll a camper, download and complete the camper registration packet and return it to Jennie Moran via email or snail mail. Do not forget to submit the $75 application fee with the completed packet. We will provide a Paypal link for those who prefer to pay application fees online when the 2020 application is made available.
All campers are required to complete a Boy Scouts of America youth application. This is included in the registration packet.

Identifying and achieving goals, improving communication and decision making skills, learning responsibility and helping others are some of the main objectives for the CLT Program. CLT Campers will have the chance to shadow actual counselors, help facilitate activities and participate in nearly every camp activity.

How much does the CLT Program cost?
The tuition for CLT Camper is $550.00 per week. Tuition may be paid by personal check, VISA, MasterCard, Discover or checks from other funding sources. RI Medical Assistance (Katie Beckett or SSI) DOES NOT cover the cost of camp.
Is there financial assistance?
Generous Camperships are available and will be awarded on a sliding scale.
How Do I Apply to Be a CLT Camper?
