  1. Must campers wear a camp T-shirt every day?

    ?

    Transportation is available in some areas upon request.
  3. How does my camper find a lost item?

    Please mark all belongings with your camper's name. This is very important since some items are identical and individual items are difficult to identify without a label. Lost & Found items are available each day in the office.
  4. How do I arrange to pick up my camper during the camp day?

    ?

    If you have to pick up your camper during the day, please notify our office. Please note that no camper will be released to ANYONE without written permission.

  8. How can I speak with my child's counselor?
