Contacting The Camp While Your Child Is Attending
Mail & packages are delivered to campers once daily. Regular mail arrives at the camp late afternoon.
Mail & packages received by 4:00 will be delivered that day. Mail & packages received after this time will be delivered the next day. (Please note that there is no Sunday mail delivery to the camp)
We highly recommend the use of FEDEX or UPS for packages. To help ensure that your child gets their package, all camper packages should be delivered to the camp by the Tuesday prior to your campers Thursday departure day. Mail & packaged received after child has left will be returned to sender.
Care packages that contain snacks & candy are permitted, however, we do encourage that packages containing food be able to be shared. Be aware that without refrigeration, some items (such as chocolate) typically do not survive transport in the heat of summer.The camp is not responsible for damages or loss of care packages.
- In the event of an emergency while your child is attending, the camp will contact you (or your emergency contact).
- Severe behavioral problems and/or in the event your child breaks camp policies, such as drinking, smoking, etc.
- Severe homesickness (parents are not contacted for typical, minor homesickness)
- In the event of a medical emergency. Parents will be contacted as soon as possible after emergency care, when needed, is secured (or your emergency contact).
- If your child is sick overnight AND is required to sleep in the health center facilities.
- In the event that your child is taken to the hospital or health care provider outside of camp.
- Illness that requires treatment other than what is considered “routine care”. (Parents are not contacted for “routine care”, such as insect bites, scratches, headaches, stomachache, etc.)
The camp is not responsible theft, loss, damages, or charges to a cell phone brought to camp, regardless of the circumstances.
For security reasons, persons without official business with the camp will not be permitted on the property during a session. The camp has been designed as an “away from home” experience. It is disruptive to both the program and the participants to have visitors interrupt their activities. There are no visitation days during a session.
Visitors other than the parent/legal guardian must have written permission from the parent/legal guardian to visit or take the child away from camp.
