If you would like to come to the first-ever Minnesota DeafBlind Camp, please fill out all the forms in this application packet and mail it to us as soon as possible…the sooner the better.

We will have SSPs (Support Service Providers) at Camp. If you have your own SSP who would like to attend, please let us know the SSP’s name and address so we can send that person the SSP application to be filled out.

This camper application packet has the following forms: camper application, emergency contact information form, medical concerns form, medical release, and three other releases.

Even if you do not have any medical problems, we ask that you or your doctor complete the medical form with as much detail as possible so the information will be available in case of an emergency. Also, if you own a wheelchair, please bring it to camp. (The campus has some hills that may be difficult for you to walk).

  2. Sign the forms.
  3. Enclose a $100.00 check (members) or $115 (non-members) with the application. Make the check or money order payable to MDBA.
    In the memo line, write For 2010 Minnesota DeafBlind Camp.
    Note: You can add $15 for a membership due to the camper fee.
