How are cabins assigned?                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Cabins are assigned based on age and gender assigned at birth. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the housing assignment process, please contact the Camp Director at

Waycross is dedicated to providing safe and comfortable housing for campers of all gender identities. We will work with you and your camper to determine the best cabin assignment, prior to the start of camp. Please contact the Camp Director to begin this process.

Can I request a bunk mate for my camper? We understand how important it is for your camper, especially first time campers, to feel comfortable in their cabin. Each camper may request one buddy at the time of registration, and the request must appear on both campers’ registration forms. The campers’ ages and grades must be the same or within one year of each other. Although we try our best to honor all buddy requests, we cannot guarantee that all requests will be honored. Questions or concerns regarding buddy requests may be directed to the Camp Director at

What is the refund policy?                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 A $75 nonrefundable deposit (per camper, per session) is due at the time of registration. If you are unable to attend your session, please call our office at 812.597.4241 as soon as possible. Prior to two weeks before the session start date, a refund may be given minus the nonrefundable deposit. After two weeks before the session start date, no refunds may be given. Contact Jenifer at with questions or concerns.

Is scholarship assistance available?                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Waycross’ policy is that no child or family will be denied a camping experience due to financial circumstances. Scholarships are available for both children and adults attending Waycross events and summer camp programs. Families must complete a scholarship request form to be considered for financial aid. We also encourage families to seek assistance from their parish, congregation, or other organizations. More information on our scholarship policy will be available soon.
