CAS Camps - Camp APAC/Camp Life Staff Application

Thank you for your interest in our Children's Aid Society of Alabama summer camping programs! This is a combined application for Camp APAC (a camp for adopted children and their siblings ages 12-18), as well as Camp Life (two separate camps for foster youth participating in the Independent Living Program). Please complete each section of this application carefully. A valid email address is required, as much of the communication that takes place prior to camp will be done electronically. 

Note: With safety a top priority, we are requiring that all staff be fully vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus or have a validated medical or religious exemption. Fully vaccinated includes having a booster shot.
