Please also read the Family Guide, as it will also have answers to your questions about Camp Ashwell. 

What paperwork do I need to fill out? 

Once you’ve registered for your desired session(s) online, you’ll need to fill out the Day Camp Forms found here [insert link].  We require new forms every year, much like schools!  These forms include: Camper Release Form, Camper Code of Conduct Form, and Health History Form.  To fill these forms out digitally, open them in Microsoft Word and click “Enable Editing” as well as “Enable Macro.” Simply type in your answers. When you’re finished, hit “Save As” and then attach your saved document to an email sent to Please send in your forms at least two weeks before your camper arrives for her first session! 

How are girls organized into camper groups?  

Girls are grouped by age: campers in summer who will be entering Kindergarten and 1st grade will be Daisies; campers who will be entering 2nd and 3rd grade will be Brownies, campers who will be entering 4th and 5th grade will be Juniors, and campers who just finished 6th, 7th, and 8th grades are Cadettes. If your camper would like to be placed with a friend, please let us know via email. Please know that for many reasons, requests cannot always be accommodated.  

How large are the camper groups?

Daisies will be placed in groups of up to 4 girls, Brownies will be placed in groups of up to 6 girls, and older campers will be placed in groups of up to 8 girls.  Each group has a dedicated counselor and the campers will plan and attend activities together.

What is the technology policy at camp?

Girls may bring their cell phones to camp, but they will not be allowed to use them during activities. There will not be secure locations to leave the phones, and campers will be too busy to check for messages.  Please call the office or camp director if you need to get in touch with your camper during the day. Other devices, including music, are not allowed at camp. Girls will be having so much fun, they won’t even notice they’re not connected! 

Why do I have to pre-register? 

It’s important for us to have camper numbers ahead of time to make sure we have enough staff available.  We apologize for any inconvenience, but both registration and payment must take place two weeks before the camp session begins. 

Are there scholarship opportunities? 

Yes! We believe that camp should be available to everyone! Please follow this link[] to apply for financial assistance. 

Can I pick my child up before 3:45? 

Because girls are planning their next day of camp or, if it’s Friday, participating in our Closing Ceremony, they will miss out on some activities if you pick them up a couple of minutes early. If you’re picking her up before 3:30, we ask that you call ahead or make arrangements at drop off so that we know.  

Can I drop my camper off before 9:00? 

Campers may only be dropped off before 9:00 if they have pre-registered for extended hours.

What happens if I am late to pick my camper up?

If you are more than 10 minutes late, you will be charged the $5 fee for extended care for that day. If you’re later than 5:30, we will charge you $5 for each 10 minutes you are late.  We know things happen, so please communicate with us as much as possible if you think you’ll be more than 10 minutes late to pick up your camper. 

More questions? Contact or (509) 747-8091. 


About Our Camp

Camp Ashwell runs 9am-4pm, Monday through Friday, at our Program Center in Spokane, with extended hours from 7:30-5:30 daily in the summer. We also offer sessions when Spokane Public Schools are out for Winter and Spring Break.  

For just $150/week, girls going into grades K-8th grades can enjoy a program tailored to provide experiences in STEM, arts and crafts, cooking, drama, swimming, and other skill-building fun.  Each day, girls lead the way by planning their own activities and trips with their camper group. Campers receive a healthy morning and afternoon snack each day and during the summer, lunches thanks to the Summer Meals Program. 

Each week has a theme and campers create art, explore science, and go on trips related to that theme. On Friday afternoons, campers celebrate the week with All-Camp, a fun time when they can perform skits, play games, and show off what they’ve learned to the entire camp!  We end with a ceremony of achievement to honor badges, patches, and other accomplishments from the week.  

Meet the 2021 Director 

Jeremy Press Taylor
Adult Education Specialist

Having spent fourteen of the last eighteen summers at camp, Jeremy is excited to bring his love for camp to Camp Ashwell! His most recent camp adventure was taking a group of 10th graders on a road trip across the South of the U.S to learn about where our food comes from! This summer, he's looking forward to supporting the staff in making camp a place where girls can thrive, build courage and self-confidence, and make lasting summer memories, in a safe and supportive environment. He is currently working towards a Master of Social Work from Eastern Washington University, and enjoys bike riding, playing ultimate frisbee, tennis, and ping pong, and swimming in the Spokane River (in any season!).
