Hedges & Highways Camperships

Important Information & Registration

Please read completely

The Hedges and Highways Scholarship ($320) has been paid for by friends of Camp Eagle and allows one camper to attend ONE camp week per year as a gift. 

Once we receive your camper’s registration you will be sent an email confirming receipt of the registration. It is very important to enter an accurate email address on the registration form.  The camper will then be checked-in on the Monday their camp week begins according to the time stamp on your camper's registration.  

Registration will remain open until all the beds at camp are filled.  Because of the high number of registered campers that do not show up for camper check-in on Monday, we accept more registrations than there are beds at Camp Eagle.  This is why it is very important your camper arrives at Shenandoah Baptist Church no later than 8:30 AM on the Monday their camp week begins for Camper Check-in.  An adult must remain with the camper until the check-in process for your camper is completed.  Pre-Registered Campers will be taken first and in the order the registration was received.  You may bring a printed registration form to Camper Check-in, however these will not be processed until all Pre-Registered Campers are completed.  If you chose to complete a paper registration, it would be extremely beneficial to mail or hand deliver your camper's registration to the Camp Eagle Office (located inside the Shenandoah Baptist Church Office) located at 6520 Williamson Road, Roanoke, VA 24019, in order to receive a time stamp and be Pre-registered. 

If your camper does not come to camper check-in, he/she may lose their reservation to the next registered camper.  If, after you hear all the information Stanley Long, Director of Camp Eagle, gives at camper check-in, you decide your camper is not ready for camp, then you may choose to give up your camper's spot to the next camper registered.  If you are later than 8:30 AM to camper check-in, your camper may lose their spot.  Your camper’s registration does not guarantee your camper a week at camp, it is only the first step in the registration process.  Your camper will be permitted to attend if there is a bed available (the earlier the registration is received, the better), he/she comes to camper check-in on time, agrees to the rules and passes the head check at the nurse’s station.

Transportation:

On Monday, the week of your camp week, a bus will leave from Shenandoah Baptist Church, 6520 Williamson Rd., Roanoke, VA, to transport campers to Camp Eagle.

Medical Policy:

For the health and safety of all campers, we request campers with contagious conditions, including lice, not attend camp.  All Campers must check-in all medications (prescription and non-prescription) with the Camp Nurse. 

Discipline:

In an effort to protect the safety of the campers and to ensure an orderly camp, the Camp Director reserves the right to dismiss any camper for reasons of safety or inappropriate behavior such as disobedience, bullying, disrespect, etc. Campers dismissed from Camp Eagle may forfeit all future opportunities to attend.

Note:

Campers do not have access to phones except in the case of an emergency.  Campers are expected to stay the entire camp week except in cases of illness or emergency at home.  All visitors must have approval from the Camp Director to be on camp property. 

Lost & Found

Lost items, with an estimated value of $25 or greater, will be kept for one week and then discarded.  All other items will be discarded after the camper departs from their week of camp.  Camp Eagle is not responsible for items lost, left or removed from Camp Eagle or any of the drop off locations.
