Children must have completed first grade OR be age 7 to attend BookTrails Camp. The grades listed for each camp can be EITHER the grade entering or exiting. We are flexible because reading level can vary greatly from student to student, regardless of their grade. The important consideration that parents should make is whether your child is ready for a camp with a camp-out and if they are engaged with the book choice/theme.

Please follow the link to register for camp on our new system, CampMinder. If your child has attended a BookTrails camp in the past three years, your information should be in this new system already (please use the email address we have on file from Active, we can look it up for you if you’ve forgotten!).  Once you’ve completed the camper application, we will “enroll” your child into their camp(s) selection if it is not already full. You will then receive a confirmation email when your payment has been processed.  

Once your child has been enrolled, you can access all required forms on the parent portal, “Camp In Touch.”  This new portal makes it easier for all of us to access paperwork and stay organized prior to camp! As always, if you have any questions at all please contact us at 855-426-6587.

Thanks for registering for BookTrails Camp! We can’t wait to see your child this summer!



BookTrails strives to provide scholarships for students who wish to attend our camps but cannot afford tuition fees. Should your student be in need, please select “yes” on the Camper Application when asked if you’d like to apply for a scholarship (please fill these out for each child you are applying for). After completing the questions, and completing the rest of the camper application, please send financial verification to admin@steamboatbooktrails.org (either a copy of the first page of your most recent tax return or a recent pay stub).  We will review your scholarship application and contact you with the amount your child has been awarded. Your card will not be charged until you have reviewed and accepted the scholarship amount. Once you have accepted the scholarship, we will then enroll your child in that camp. You will be responsible for paying the remaining balance if you are awarded a partial scholarship; we do have monthly installment plans available (all balances must be paid by June 1, 2020).  If you have any questions about this process, please call us at 855-426-6587 and we’d be happy to help you!


By registering a child in a BookTrails program, you agree to all policies and regulations. Please read carefully.
