Q: Can I request a counselor?

A: You can, but we cannot guarantee you will get them. Our staff have different jobs each and every week depending on their schedule, skills, and the needs of the ministry that week, so they may not be available for the age group of your camper. With that said, if you would like to request a counselor because they are a family member or good friend, we will take that into consideration as we look at that weeks schedule. All of our staff are highly qualified and highly talented at what they do, so that your camper can have a positive, safe and memorable experience at camp.

Q: When do I pick up and drop off my camper?

A: You can find all this information at the camp info page.

Q: Can I come to camp with my camper?

A: Yes, you can! Your best two options for that are Resource Staff and Mini Camp.

Q: I would like to send e-mails, letters, or packages to my camper. Is this possible?

A: Yes it is! You can send e-mails during the week that your camper is at camp by clicking here. You may send letters or packages directly to camp, or leave them at camp during registration, and we will deliver them to your camper(s). Find the mailing addresses for both camps here.

Q: How does the camp deal with sickness/homesickness?

A: We take both very seriously with the goal of helping your camper have a positive experience. Our staff are trained to involve one of the directors as soon as possible so that we can figure out the best course of action. Since you know your camper best, we will often contact you and let you know what is going on; asking if you have any suggestions, ideas, concerns or past history that may help us out. We have an onsite medic who can help out as well. If we collectively decide that your camper, as well as the campers and staff around them, can have a positive and enjoyable time at camp, we will allow them to rest, recover and plug back into the daily activities as soon as possible. If your camper’s experience, along with the experience of those around them, is not positive, nor is it helpful for their health or well-being to remain at camp, we will make the call along with you to send them home.

Q: What is the food like at camp?

A: We serve 3 excellent, well-balanced meals each and every day. In addition to what is served, we have a cereal and toast bar at breakfast, as well as fruit available throughout the day. If you have any specific questions regarding allergies or unique dietary requests, please contact Laura Neidhold, our Summer Camp Registrar.
