Fanari Camp Registration Opens April 16th!

ONLINE CAMPER REGISTRATION:

Beginning this summer, in our continuous efforts to provide the best possible care to our campers and staff, Fanari Camp is partnering with CampDoc.com for both online registration and for submitting health history information. Their system will help us consolidate and integrate camper registration and health information into a centralized and secure location that is confidential and password protected. Once you sign up for a CampDoc.com account, you will be able to register your camper, select a session and pay your fee online. You will then receive additional information about how to complete your camper’s health profile and get periodic notifications from CampDoc.com if you have not completed required health information before camp. Once a week is full, there will be an option for a waiting list or to register for another week, if that week is open. For those of you who need financial assistance and want to apply for a scholarship from either Leadership 100 or GAMA, please, see the section titled Scholarship Application 2015 below for more information.

We are excited to continually evolve, building safer, more productive and more efficient systems to create the best experience for you and your family!

ONLINE STAFF APPLICATIONS:

Interested applicants for staff will also log on and create a CampDoc.com account to apply for a counselor position and submit required health forms. You will also be directed to download the mandatory Clergy, General and Medical Recommendation forms, as well.

Fanari Camp is offering 4 sessions this year to choose from:

Session 1: June 15-21 6th-11th grade

Session 2: June 22-28 10th & 11th grade ONLY

Session 3: July 6-12 6th-11th grade

OUR REGISTRATION WEBSITE WILL OPEN ON THURSDAY, APRIL 16TH. Go to http://www.fanari.org to apply when it goes live! 

We will post another reminder, as the April 16th opening date for registration nears, with an exact time that registration will open. Please, share and spread the word to anyone you think may be interested in being a Fanari camper or counselor. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please contact Dn. Chris Avramopoulos at gochicagoyouth@aol.com or 312-337-4130.
