Register for Camp

To register for camp, follow these three easy steps:


Click here for the 2020 Registration Form

NOTE: If you have a minor participating in the Youth Sponsor Program, be sure to:
A. Fill in the Medical Information Form, and
B. print, fill in, and sign the Minor Release Form.
The Medical Information Form must be filled in before your child arrives at camp.
The completed and signed Minor Release Form must arrive at camp with your child. If the sponsor was assigned to your child, the Registrar will be sure to get it signed upon their arrival. We must have a signed original (not photocopy, fax, or scan) to present to any medical facility in the unlikely event of an emergency.


The deposit = the cost of 1 night per week or part thereof for the duration of your stay. This means that for 1-7 days, the deposit is the cost of one night; for 8 or more days, it's the cost of 2 nights.

Do one of the following:

  2A. We would very much prefer that you please
        Pay Online.

click here to pay your deposit online


  2B. Only if absolutely necessary, you can
       Pay by Mail.

But please be aware that there is often a lo-o-o-ong wait (sometimes 2-3 months) before your check clears.

Make your deposit check payable to: "FNCA" and mail it to:
   Bob Perry, FNCA Treasurer
   61 Clark Lane
   Waltham MA 02451

NOTE: Do NOT under any circumstances mail any sort of deposit or payment to the Registrar. That is a big no-no. It could also mean as much as a 6 month turn around on your check. Thanks.


  2C. If you are requesting a Staff Position or Scholarship
       Fill in a Staff Position Request Form or        a Scholarship Request Form.

The Staff Position Request Form should be submitted at the same time as your registration.

There are also always Scholarship funds available for children, teens, and adults who may need them. Please fill out a Scholarship Request Form when you register, and the Scholarship Committee will review your request. If funds are limited, the order in which the Scholarship requests are recieved is taken into consideration during this review.

if necessary.

If you or anyone on your registration has dietary restrictions and/or special dietary needs, please fill out a separate Camper Dietary Needs Form for each person on your registration who has dietary needs.

The registration fee is waived for registrations online timestamped by June 15th, so be sure to register early!


© Nancy F. Little 200Housing is assigned by the Registrar in the following order of priorities:

1. Physical Need
Some spaces are specifically designed for handicapped or campers with limited mobility or other physical ailment. These spaces are given to these campers above all other requests.

2. Family Size
Some cabins have just a double bed, another has a double plus three twins, others have two bedrooms, etc. The spaces are used as efficiently as possible to maximize camper capacity.

3. Length of Stay
Campers staying two weeks are given priority over those staying one week; campers staying one week are given priority over those staying just a weekend; etc.

4. Extenuating Circumstances
Although pets are not allowed at camp, if you have been given special permission by the Camp Director, you will be housed in one of the outer cabins, meaning the ones out in the woods: Murdoch through Laird (#12-18 on the FNCA Map).

5. Special Requests
Some annual attendees have specific spaces where they prefer to stay. Every effort is made to accommodate these requests after the above criteria are met.

6. Order of Registration Received
After all other criteria are taken into consideration, the order in which registrations were received is taken into account, so please register as soon as you know your plans!

There's actually quite a bit more to it than that, and each year our Registrar does an excellent job of putting the whole housing puzzle together so that it works best for the entire camp. In fact, in our online 2017 FNCA Camper Survey, "Housing" received an amazing 86% Excellent and 6% Good rating for a combined 92% overall approval rating!

NOTE: To learn about what living spaces are available, please see the Housing page.

Special Note to Middle Weekend Campers:

A reminder that First Week officially ends and Second Week officially begins after middle Saturday lunch. Due to the Dole 3 Miler, our Middle Weekend numbers tend to soar! While we really do want you to come early or stay as long as you'd like, those who wish to stay in a cabin or room over Middle Weekend can sometimes be very difficult to accommodate — however, tent sites are always available. Since Second Week starts after lunch on Saturday, some spaces may need to be vacated by then to allow arriving Second Week campers to move into their living quarters. Therefore, please be aware that at the Registrar's discretion, those staying over Middle Weekend may need to move after lunch or else (*gasp*) share their space.
