We are so very thankful and elated for the tremendous turn out for Fanari Camp 2017 Registration yesterday! The first three sessions sold out in under a half hour. As of today, we only have a few spots open in Session 4, so there’s still time to be a part of a week of fun, fellowship and spiritual growth that Fanari Camp has to offer!
If you are currently enrolled in a session, it is imperative that you log into your Campdoc account, go into your campers’ Health Profile and fill out the entire Patient Information now. This will help us in organizing each camper in their correct age group and accommodate any roommate requests.
We know the registration process was frustrating for those of you who saw the availability of your prefered session disappear within minutes and we are truly sorry for the disappointment this caused. With over 400 families registering right at 12:00pm when we launched, it happened very quickly.
For those of you currently on a waitlist, the process to determine how many campers can move up into a session will take a few weeks. Once we are able to evaluate the number and age of female/male campers, we will see where there is open bed space in each particular age group and move campers from the waitlist accordingly. While some may be disappointed that they will be unable to attend a particular session planned with friends, it is our hope that another session will provide the opportunity to make new friends.
The Fanari Camp program has, for over 40 years, provided a special home to many campers, clergy and staff to grow in their faith, as well as, create bonds and memories that last a lifetime. We are humbled by the overwhelming response to our registration and strive to be the best camping program we can be for the Metropolis of Chicago families.
