Completing Your Application

In order to successfully complete this application form, please have the following information ready:

  • A copy of your camp's mission statement
  • Documentation of the names of the board of directors 
  • The current and previous year's operating budget of the camp as approved by the board of directors
  • Documentation of camp's tax exempt charitable status as nonprofit organization 501(c)(3) for camps in US or CCRA nonprofit registration for Canadian camps
  • Documentation of camp's ACA or CCA accreditation status (if applicable)
Please note that the FJC is not an accrediting institution. Though we do not require outside accreditation currently, FJC does encourage ACA or CCA Accreditation for all camps in its network given that their standards are recognized by courts of law and government regulators as the standards of the camp community throughout the United States and Canada. 

Application Timeline

Applications are reviewed on a semi-annual rolling basis in the winter (by December 15) and the spring ( April 15). Overnight camp applications received before the winter deadline are guaranteed consideration for the current One Happy Camper season (One Happy Camper is only available to overnight camps). Overnight applications received after the winter deadline will still be considered for the FJC network, but will not be eligible for consideration for One Happy Camper until the following summer. All camps should expect to hear of their status within two weeks of submission of their application.
Save and Resume 

You can stop the form at any time and save your work up to that point.  

  • The “Save-and-Resume” function (available at the top or bottom of this questionnaire) will allow you to save progress, and return to that exact spot in the questionnaire at another time.
  • When you choose to “Save-and-Resume”, you will need to submit your email address and a password.
  • Thereafter, you will receive a link to access the incomplete questionnaire in the future. If you do not see the email in your inbox, please check your spam folder.
  • This link can be accessed at any time by anyone with the correct credentials, and will save your work up to the exact spot where the questionnaire was saved when the link was sent.
  • When you get back to the questionnaire through the proper credentials, you will be dropped at the beginning of the questionnaire. Please note that as you advance through the questionnaire to get back to where you left off, your updated data will be in each question you already responded to.
  • Once you have responded to questions beyond the exact spot where you left off, you will need to start the "Save-and-Resume" process over to do it again.  You can go through the “Save-and-Resume” process as many times as needed.
