How to register your camper:

Kids AT Registration Link: app.campdoc.com/register/ing (opens in a new window/tab)

Deadline to register is June 13.

Here are a few things about registration. Please be sure to register for the camp you want...choose either North Camp or South Camp and under the correct identification either Army National Guard OR Air Guard. Once you get started the site will offer up travel protection insurance, there is NO need to purchase that. That option is offered through the website for travel protection if we are flying somewhere or plans get cancelled. Please deny this option or you will be paying extra.

There is also an option for another camp on this registration for the Dunes Camp, this is NOT Kids AT. This is an option only for Army National guard youth and not available for registration at this time. More information will be available.

If you think you qualify for the scholarship for Kids AT please contact the Indiana Child & Youth Program Coordinator at 317-247-3300 ext. 85481 directly to receive the scholarship information. MORE GOOD NEWS...THE PRICE OF CAMP DROPPED THIS YEAR!!

We do have a policy on what youth are permitted to attend Kids AT camps; Attendance Priority Criteria:

  1. Children/direct dependents of mobilized or deployed Indiana National Guard members.
  2. Children/direct dependents of Indiana National Guard members in the deployment cycle (either pre-mobilization or reintegration up to one year).
  3. Children/direct dependents of all Indiana fallen service members of all branches.
  4. Children/direct dependents of Traditional and Active Indiana National Guard members.
  5. Children/direct dependents of Retired Indiana National Guard members.
  6. Siblings, grandchildren, cousins, nieces and nephews of current National Guard members
  7. Siblings, grandchildren, cousins, nieces and nephews of retired National Guard members

******IMPORTANT******
YOUR ONLINE REGISTRATION DOES NOT SECURE YOUR SPOT
You will receive an email confirmation directly from me to let you know that your camper has been accepted to attend. Due to the above criteria, I must ensure that top priority gets in first. We also have more spaces available this year and do not anticipate that any child will be turned away unless they do not meet the criteria.

Call for volunteers:

  • Ever wanted to spend a week mentoring kids at a military themed summer camp?
  • Did you know that you can use permissive TDY, Admin leave, or alternate annual training to volunteer?
  • Already have campers signed for Kids AT and want to get in on the fun?

Kids AT is conducted each year by the State Family Programs office. We are looking for volunteers for one or both weeks of each camp for the following positions: Camp Counselor, Workshop Instructor, Admin Support, Supply and Operations.
