We are using the same registration that we use for MBC Day Camp - so there is a chance that your details may already be "in the system".

There are two options -

  1. Attending and taking the bus from MBC ($135/person)
  2. Attending and driving yourself to Graphite Bible Camp ($110/person).

This registration system is designed to register everyone from your household that is attending all at one time. If you are a parent registering on behalf of your child(ren), please make sure your children's names are selected as attending - and not you!
