How far in advance do registrations open?
We open camp registrations online two school terms in advance (e.g. summer camp registrations open at the start of term 3). You can also sign up for email updates, or ‘like’ us on Facebook to ensure you don’t miss out on what’s happening at CRU Camps.
How do I find out how many places are left on a particular camp?
Use the ‘Find a camp’ search to find a specific camp and the number of spots left will be listed. For gender specific availability, click through to the camp listing page. This information is updated in real time, and bookings are only confirmed once payment has been received. You may add your child to a waiting list if the camp is full.
Who can fill out an online registration form?
Parents, legal guardians or caseworkers may complete the full registration process for their child or children. Campers aged 18 or older may complete the registration themselves. Friends (e.g. the parent of another camper) or carers without legal guardianship may partially complete a registration (with or without payment) which the guardian must complete to authorise the booking, provide personal medical information and secure the place.
How do I register my child’s friends onto camp using the online registration system?
Simply attempt a registration online by clicking ‘register’, select your relationship to that child and complete the required questions with or without payment. The child’s parent or guardian will be emailed a link to complete the registration and secure the booking. Placing the name of your child’s friend as a room-mate preference does not secure a place for that child.
How do I register more than one child onto the same camp in an online registration?
Simply complete the first registration and then click ‘add another camp/camper’, search for the same camp and complete the second child’s details, then ‘make payment’ to secure the places.
How do I register numerous children onto different camps in a single online registration?
Simply complete the first registration and then click ‘add another camp/camper’, search for your desired camp and complete the child’s details, then ‘make payment’ to secure the places.
I don’t wish to register over the internet. How can I register my child for camp?
If you are unable to use the online registration process, you can register your child for a camp by posting, faxing or emailing this registration form to the CRU Camps office (click to download PDF). Alternatively you can register over the phone by calling the CRU Camps Office on 02 9874 8933 (option 1). Please note that a $10 administration fee applies to all offline bookings.
What if I don’t have a Medicare Card for online registrations?
You will need to have either a Medicare Card OR a health/travel insurance membership number to register for camp. Please contact us if this is a problem.
Can attending a CRU Camp count towards my Duke of Edinburgh award?
Being a camper or leader on a CRU Camp is a great way to achieve the Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award Residential Project requirement. It’s always best to check with your supervisor to make sure the particular camp style and length meets the exact requirements. You’ll also need to talk to the camp director at camp in order to have your record book completed.
