Steps involved to complete your registration.

These videos are helpful for completing your camper's registration.

 Making a Friend Request.

If your camper wants to be in the same cabin as a friend, then you need to complete the online Friend Request form in your account.

Check out this video to learn how! 

IMPORTANT NOTE: Do all campers come with a friend? Absolutely not. This is actually super common!

We are confident your camper will make friends quickly! We’re intentional about setting up cabins and friend requests to not isolate any single camper. Our coaches are trained to help facilitate friendships and prevent “friendship-cliques.”

The Camp Store Guide

Camp store goodies are like Oreos on a ruckus cake! 
Your camper will have a blast with or without them, but if you're into sweet surprises, here's your chance to add a sprinkle of extra fun.

Store Card

The Store Card is an account you set up for your camper within their online account. This will allow your camper to have funds available to them when they visit the camp store.

PLEASE NOTE:  Each camper will have the opportunity to visit the camp store once during their week-long stay. This visit will be organized by cabin. We allow campers ample time for them to explore and select meaningful mementos that will remind them of their time at T Bar M Camps.

Look for "Store Card" in your camper's account to put money in their account to be used during their visit to the camp store.

Alpha Vs. Omega

The greatest tradition of T Bar M Camps – Alpha and Omega competitions!!

How does it work?

The camp is split into two big teams. If you are a first-time camper, you will be assigned to be either an Alpha (the red team) or an Omega (the blue team) before you get to camp. And know this – once you are assigned a team, you will be on that team for life!!  

How does this impact your camper?

STEP ONE: Find out which team your camper has been assigned to (see the video below if you don't know).

STEP TWO: Pack a few items for your camper that represent their team color:  Red for Alphas | Blue for Omegas 

PLEASE NOTE: (1) Every cabin/group includes a mixture of both Alpha campers and Omega campers.  (2) Your assigned team does not affect friend requests.
How to see if your camper is an Alpha or an Omega:
Step 1: Login to your account dashboard
step 2: click attendee selection
Step 3: click edit
