Yes! When you register online, there will be a section titled “Cabin-mate management”. Put in the name(s) and email of friend(s) and a roommate request will be sent to them. To accept a cabin-mate request, check your email for a code and enter the code in the “Cabin-mate management” section.
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.

Check the Lost and Found at pick-up! Each week before closing program, lost and found items are gathered and laid out on a table. Please stop by the table before you leave to check for any missing items.
If you believe your camper has left something behind, email Hannah at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include “lost & found” and the week your camper attended in the subject line.
Note: All items unclaimed by October 1st will be donated to local charities.
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 on-site 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.
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. Our Trading Post is also open every afternoon and evening and sells candy, snacks, drinks, clothing and souvenirs.
