The following information is a full detail of what we will need for camp registration from your area. Do all of this and send updated documents with any changes prior to your group's arrival and check-in should be quick. It is our personal goal to have you checked in and out of the office in less than 5 minutes. We want you to be out with your campers, not stuck in the office with us until 11pm on night 1 (it happens more often than you think!).
Please have all Trip Leaders, Team Leaders, AD's, Admins, Trip Coordinators associated with your area read over this page so we can get the Trip Leader back to where they belong, enjoying Malibu with your kids!

Step One: Keep Contact Info Updated

  • Please make sure all people who should receive information about your trip are on the list of contacts with the camp office.
    • AD/Primary Contact (input in Mission Security)
    • Area Admin (input on your contract or email the camp office)
    • Trip Leader (person attending camp with the trip - input on your contract or email the camp office)
    • Trip Coordinator (not the Admin or AD who is planning the trip and not attending as the Trip Leader - send name to camp office)
  • Everyone listed as a trip contact must have Young Life screening completed and be listed in the YL Staff Directory.
  • Email addresses and phone numbers for the above contacts will pull from Staff Resources, so be sure everyone involved in the trip has their information current in the Young Life account on Staff Resources. We are not able to update that information for you. If you/they see their email or phone listed incorrectly, then they need to change that in Staff Resources themselves.
  • The contacts you send in for your area will receive, a few days before each item is due, email reminders to the email address listed in Staff Resources.

Step Two: Forms Due Prior to Arrival

Step Three: Forms Due at Check-In

We know that you just got off of a very long boat ride, and before that a very long bus ride. Coming into the office to do paperwork doesn't sound ideal. But here's the thing: We like you, dear friends, and as Young Life leaders you are right up there with Superman and Captain America in our books. So we promise to greet you with smiling faces and a pitcher of ice cold water. And chocolate. Always chocolate. Then send you on your way. It is our personal goal to have you checked in and out of the office in less than 5 minutes. We want you to be out with your campers, not stuck in the office with us until 11pm on night 1 (Yuck!).
Please, please, have the Trip Leader who is attending camp with the campers read over this page so we can get them back to where they belong, enjoying Malibu with your kids!
  • The Trip Leader will need to head to the Malibu Office on Main Street at Camp as soon as they get off the boat. The Admin Team will ask the following questions
    • Do you want some water?
    • Do you want a chocolate or candy?
    • Any changes to the Registration Packet data that have occured in the past 48 hours?
    • Any adds or drops in Campers or Leaders?
    • We will ask for any missing data that was not on the Registration Packet (all the info above such as ethnicity, repeat campers, or Capernaum)
    • Do you have anyone leaving early?
  • While this is going on, we will be checking over any paper Health Forms to ensure they are all filled out to completion and are the most current version.
  • Go eat some ice cream!
  • If there are any forms missing, not a current version, or incomplete and the Trip Leader has already left, they will be called back in during the first Leader Meeting or we'll find them at dinner.

Health and Consent Forms

  • Due at Check-In upon arrival at camp
  • Each person at Malibu must have a completed and current version of:
    1. The Camping Health, Consent, and Release Form (YL6007) - Online Form
  • Each person coming to Malibu needs to complete this form.
  • Are you a legal adult or leader? Still need a form.
  • Already been to Malibu once this calendar year? Still needs to complete a form for the new camp trip. Using the Online Form makes this process super quick as you can copy your form and adjust it for the new camp dates.
  • If you do go with the PDF option for the YL6007
    • The PDF ​MUST be the most current version of the YL6007 - it will be noted on the bottom of the form as being Oct 2018 or later.​
    • Ensure everyone has everything signed. All the places on the back page must be signed.
    • TIPPut your paper health forms (any not done online, if they're online then we don't want them on paper) in a binder or folder alphabetized by last name, with a separate section for your leaders. This will help us whip through making sure that they are all complete.
  • Instructions on to share with parents, leaders, and trip coordinators
  • Instructions on Staff Resources for trip coordinators and admins to manage (check that everyone is complete and has selected Malibu and the correct dates) and print (use the Travel Short Form for the travel copy) health forms for the camp trip
  • Common Mistakes for you to learn from others:
    • The number one mistake people make is not realizing that leaders also need forms.
    • Mistakes number two and three are only with the PDF version of the YL6007 - to stay away from these, use the Online Form.
      • The number two mistake people make is not using the most current version of the PDF YL6007. It should be indicated as Oct 2018 or later. If you use one with a date pre-Oct 2018 indicated, you will be required to have the old Consent for Treatment in Canada completed in original by the parents and turned in at check-in on Day 1 on paper, with original signatures.
      • The number three mistake people make is incomplete forms - not having all the parental signatures in all the places, and not having information like insurance (even if that means intentionally ticking off the "not insured" box versus leaving it blank).
    • Please don't let any of these previous mistakes be what keeps you from being out with your kids! You want to be out eating ice cream with them, not spending time in the office calling through all the parents to explain what they need to do before bed-time, and why your trip didn't have those organized prior to departure from home. Let's save face! Let's eat ice cream! Let's have everything taken care of before your bus leaves home! Go Team!
Using the Online Health Form application on the Young Life website will make your life so much easier. Scouts honour. If you feel that you may have families who struggle technologically, suggestion: have a Health Form party where you have leaders (with a bit of knowledge on how to fill out the form) with a handful of laptops. One, you have both campers and leaders filling out the forms, and two, you have more interaction between Parents and Leaders. Win/Win.)

Permission for Camper to Leave Camp Early forms

  • Due at Check-In upon arrival at camp
  • If you have any campers who are leaving Malibu in a fashion different than the rest of the trip, you will need to have the 1853 Permission for Camper to Leave Camp Early form filled out, signed by a legal guardian.
  • This applies to anyone flying out of camp, even at the same time as the rest of camp.
  • Please see Staff Resources​ for full instructions.
  • If you have a questions or think that this might apply to one of your campers, please contact the Admin Office at

POST-Trip Information

  • ​Due within a day of departure, or earlier, is the Trip Leader Observation on the Camp Week Report. Previously we had been allowed to do it on paper to be handed in at camp on Day 6 at lunch. Young Life has now gone to all forms being due online only.
  • Take note of the Lost and Found form on the main page of the Malibu website. Direct your leaders, campers, parents to that main page to report any Lost and Found items discovere after the trip home.

This is tedious...Why are these forms so important?

While it may seem time consuming, we have committed to ensuring that all legal paperwork dealing with campers and leaders is filled out and processed correctly. While seemingly mundane, this is the biggest defense to ensure the protection of the Young Life mission as a whole by making sure that all legal papers and processes (such as leader CBCs) are done and complete. Let's protect our Mission by giving all processes due diligence and attention.

Wait - What is due when?

Please note that everything is due by 10 am, Pacific Time. Weekends or holidays are no exceptions, except for R2 Contracts. Please call the Malibu Office if you have questions.
