2019 Centennial Celebration Registration Procedure

Mail-in registrations so that they are postmarked on or after Wednesday, January 9th, 2019. First Class mail, only. The registrations postmarked on that date will be randomly placed in a box to be drawn to complete the numerical roster. This roster will be finalized and sent to Camp Dearborn. You will be contacted by Camp Dearborn on or after February 18th to reserve your site. This procedure may take a couple of weeks to contact everyone. Your phone number is extremely important to ensure a smooth and orderly site reservation process. Have your credit card available.

Submitting a registration form postmarked before January 9th will cause the registration to be processed after all others have been processed.

The numerical list will be sent to Camp Dearborn indicating your site preference. Many of the preferences will be honored. If your preference is not open, your preference as to whether you indicated electric only or full hook-up would help Camp narrow down the site possibilities.

There are some things you need to consider regarding site preference:

  • Check the Camp Dearborn site to determine site preference and site fees: https://www.campdearborn.com/
  • There is a high demand for Sites 1-65 (electric only). They fill up the fastest
  • K Row is an electric only area that may suit you
  • Twenty-four electric only sites are available near the meeting tent. People with mobility difficulties might consider these sites (New Maple Area). There is a restroom located near the tent. There will not be individual fire pits or open fires allowed in this area.
  • The date for the Fall Gathering is September 26 to 29 – consider registering now to secure your site
  • Indicate on the registration if your camper was manufactured in Michigan

Extended stay registrations will be processed first and then short stay next.

Extended Stay Registration Form (Tuesday-Sunday)
