Application Instructions: All fields with a red asterisk are required. After completing the application, click the "Submit" button at the bottom. You should see a confirmation that your application was received. If you don't receive a confirmation message at the bottom, please confirm your application was received at: firstname.lastname@example.org (A downloadable paper application is available at the bottom of the instructions.)
Application Criteria for Camp Ostara: Cisgender women 18+ years of age who identify as a survivor of any act of domestic violence that involved a family member, intimate partner, or acquaintance, including experiencing domestic violence as a child. (Please see our Inclusivity Vision Statement for those who do not meet these criteria).
Application Deadline: The deadline to apply is February 15, 2018, however, we will continue accepting applications after the deadline as you will automatically be placed on our waiting list and may be called up to one day prior to camp and offered a space.
When Will I be Notified if I am Accepted?: All applicants will be notified of their acceptance or waiting list status by March 5, 2018. In the event an accepted participant cancels and you are on the waiting list, you may be contacted and offered a space as late as the day before camp.
How Will I be Notified if I am Accepted?: We will call you at the number you provide on your application. If we are unable to reach you via phone, we will attempt to contact you one time at the email address provided on your application. If we are unable to reach you after 3 attempts, we will offer the space to another applicant.
Refundable Attendance Deposit: Because our programs are in high demand and are designed as a "small group" experience with only 12 spaces, we ask accepted participants to make an "attendance commitment" by making a refundable $100 deposit to secure their space. The deposit will be fully refunded upon the completion of the program. In the event a person no-shows or cancels after March 29, 2018, this deposit will be forfeited. If $100 poses a financial burden to you, we will work with you individually to prevent money from being a barrier to your participation.
Downloadable Application: If you need to download and print/mail a paper application it is available here.
