Summer 2024 - Camper Application Information

Stagedoor Manor hosts campers from every state and from countries around the world! Because of the weight of our reputation in the industry, we receive hundreds of applications each year – far more than we can accommodate. Our advice is simple: If you are interested in attending Stagedoor Manor during the summer of 2024, please complete an online application as soon as possible.

We now enroll ALL campers on a first-come, first-served basis until we are full.

If you delay completing our application – or if you delay completing your deposit – you will seriously limit your chance of acceptance.

If you complete our application and deposit before September 15th, an exclusive Stagedoor Manor sweatshirt – that we don’t sell – will be waiting for your camper in Loch Sheldrake next summer. The sweatshirt is only available to families that apply before September 15th.

We require a $1500 deposit per session; once a camper is enrolled, $500 of each $1500 session deposit is a non-refundable application fee. After January 15, 2024, there is no refund of the initial deposit. After February 15, 2024, there are no refunds. Cancellations are processed upon written request. Information about our policies, and our terms and conditions, can be found on our application.
