Confirmation and health forms will be mailed upon receipt of registration. Registration fees may be refunded if registration is cancelled in writing no later than one week prior to the start of the session, or in the case of illness or emergency.

The IFU Education Foundation will arrange and pay for travel to and from camp for each session with at least 5 Iowa participants registered. If your child wishes to attend a camp session with fewer than 5 Iowa participants registered, we may instead provide a travel stipend and coordinate ride sharing to assist you in arranging for your own travel.

Kamp Kenwood and IFU youth education programs are sponsored in part by generous support from the CHS Foundation.
