Camp Options

For over 60 years Camp Albemarle has provided quality summer programs with the goal of providing safe and fun experiences that allow children to try new activities, make new friends and grow in their Christian faith. Camp Albemarle now offers overnight traditional and adventure camp options, as well as a full schedule of day camps, so you can find the best fit for your child.

Camp Store

On Friday of each week campers will be given the opportunity to go to the Camp Store. You may send money with your camper if they would like to purchase souvenirs. This is the only day the store will be open, so it is not recommended that you send cash with your camper other days. The Camp Store will also be open during checkout on Friday afternoon.

Cancellation Policy

In the event of a cancellation, a refund will be given minus a $50 processing fee if it is more than three weeks away from the start of the session. If the cancellation is less than three weeks from the beginning of the session, a refund will not be issued unless the cancellation is due to a medical or family emergency. Please call the office with any questions.

Drop off and Pick up

Registration is on Monday from 8:30 – 9:00 am. We are not able to take any check-ins before 8:45, so please plan your schedule accordingly, or register for an early drop off Monday which will allow for check in at 8:00. Each day your child will be “signed in” (with a signature) at which time you will indicate who will be picking them up that afternoon (this will allow for those carpooling or for different relatives who are dropping off/picking up).

Pick up is at 4:00 pm each day. At the end of each session we invite our campers’ families and friends to join us for our closing. This will begin at 4:00 pm on Friday after our closing circle. Our weekly slideshow will be playing and the Camp Store will be open.

Medical Information

The Health Form can be filled out online on the same account where you register your camper. Please complete the Camper MAR Form if your camper is bringing medications to camp.

The Medication Administration Record form must be completed and signed by both the parent and the authorized Prescriber (Physician, Dentist, Physician Assistant, Advanced Practice Registered Nurse) for EVERY medication the camper will bring to camp.

These forms must be completed every year, but if your child is attending more than one session during a summer, need be submitted only once. Please fill out this form online no later than June 1, 2015.

Bring a copy of your health insurance card and your campers MAR form (if applicable) with you to give to the nurse and/ or health officer during registration.

Lost and Found

Please do not send anything to camp that is not replaceable and please put your child’s name on everything! Our counselors do a very good job at trying to make sure nothing is left behind, but things do sometimes get left. If you return home on Friday and realize you forgot something, please contact us as soon as possible so we can arrange to get it to you. Items will be kept for one week in the Lost & Found then donated to a local charity.

Payment Information

Invoices will be sent out monthly via email. Payments can be made by logging into your online account, sending a check to the camp office or calling into the camp office. The registration needs to be paid for in full no later than June 1st.

Phones and Electronics

Cell phones and electronics (including game players, iPods and e-readers) are not allowed at camp. At Camp Albemarle, we strive to create an opportunity for your child to unplug and take a break from the electronics they are bombarded with daily, to live within a community and bond with their counselor and fellow campers in a natural setting. If your child is found with any of these items, they will be taken away from them and returned to you at check out. Please do not confuse your camper by encouraging them to break this rule, but abide by the others!

We want to work with you to make this experience a great one for your camper – we will call you if any of the following occur: Your child is very upset, your child is ill or injured and requires anything more than a Band-aid or a Tylenol, there is anything we would like to discuss with you (behavior issues, medication doses, etc.). In case of an emergency at home (when you have to talk to your child), please call the camp office and we can have them call you back, however this requires us to pull them out of an activity, and bring them to the office for the phone call. Please use this option only in the case of emergencies.


Each summer, we hire a photographer to take pictures of the campers throughout the day at their daily activities. These pictures will be posted each night. The Photo Service is a part of your registration.

Any other questions?

Please feel free to call the camp office at 252-726-4848 or email us at We are looking forward to seeing your camper this summer – please do not hesitate to contact us if we can help you in any way.

Financial Aid

Camp Albemarle has a limited amount of campership money available each year. In all but extreme cases we are not able to award full camperships, but are very willing to work with families on the cost of camp including partial camperships and payment plans. In considering how much your family may be able to contribute, please consider all sources you may have available including church or community groups, or extended family members, such as grandparents, who may consider a payment towards camp as a holiday or birthday gift.

We are committed to giving all children the opportunity to have a great camp experience, please contact Camp Albemarle for a campership application if you are concerned about your family’s ability to pay.
