Youth Camp 2016

Welcome to the all new NJ National Guard Youth Camp Web Site!

Please read below for important updates for 2016:

NOTE: AFTER YOU HAVE COMPLETED YOUR REGISTRATION PROCESS YOU WILL RECEIVE AN EMAIL WITH CONFIRMATION THAT STATES YOU ARE NOT APPROVED. YOU WILL BE APPROVED ONCE ALL FORMS AND REQUIRED CLASSES ARE COMPLETED. THE SOONER YOU GET THESE FORMS TO US, THE SOONER YOUR APPROVAL STATUS WILL CHANGE. IF YOU PAID VIA CREDIT/DEBIT CARD, THE PAYMENT WAS PROCESSED AS LONG AS YOU RECEIVED THE CONFIRMATION AND THE CARD WAS NOT DECLINED. THIS NOT APPROVED MESSAGE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH PAYMENT. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE CONTACT THE YOUTH CAMP STAFF HERE.

The application process for 2016 has opened!!!! This year we have completely revamped this site with the hopes that you have a much more pleasurable registration experience with us! We have added the profile feature this year so that you can create an account and all of your information will be saved for future use.

There are now 5 applications based on the age of the participant. Please read everything carefully as things have changed this year.
