FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What are the pick up and drop off times?
A list of all of our pickup and drop off times can be found here. Please remember these times are scheduled rain or shine! If you need to make other arrangements call Diane ASAP at 346-2243 ext 104.
What is the refund policy?
Cancellation made prior to June 1, a full refund, less the deposit, will be issued. Cancellation made after June 1, no refund will be given. Considerations may be made for serious injury or illness which prevents camper from attending camp for the full week. Campers leaving their session early will not receive a refund. Campers arriving late to their session will not receive a prorated rate.
Can my camper request someone to be in their cabin?
Yes, every camper has the option to list one cabin mate request. Some things to keep in mind about cabin mate requests: Ask that camper to also request you, we will not consider non-reciprocal requests. We cannot share cabin placements or cabin request info prior to your child arriving at camp. Cabin mate requests should be of similar age, if they are not, the older camper will always move down to a younger cabin, if the request if honored. This request is to be in the same cabin, not in the same bunk bed. A bunk lottery is held upon arrival to the cabin. We make no guarantees when it comes to cabin mate requests but work hard to accommodate everyone. Feel free not to request anyone! Camp is a great place to meet new friends.
Can I communicate with my child while they are at camp?
We encourage letter writing as the primary communication during Camp. We find that calling home during the week tends to make campers homesick when they otherwise wouldn’t be and that they do their best when they’re fully invested in the Camp experience. You can use our email system to write to your camper daily. Please be aware your camper won’t be reading your email on a computer, rather we will print them off as mail for them.
Are campers allowed to bring their cell phones?
We believe there are numerous benefits to having campers unplug for the week and therefore have a no phone policy at Camp. We have found that campers do their best when they are fully invested in Camp and have the opportunity to experience Camp independently. Some of the benefits of unplugging that we’ve seen as camping professionals is a willingness to engage with peers, try new things, and step outside their comfort zones in many different ways.
What should my child pack for camp?
We have a printable packing list that can be downloaded here. We recommend extra underwear, socks, and bathing suits! No need to bring any money to Camp, campers will receive store credit for snacks.
What if my camper has dietary restrictions?
A menu will be e-mailed the week before your camper’s arrival. If your camper has special dietary concerns, please contact Diane at (585) 346-2243, ext. 104.
