Frequently Asked Questions:

What is the age range of campers in a cabin? For all camps, campers are assigned cabins by age and we strive to keep age gaps within each cabin within one year. For example, 8-9 year olds are in a cabin, 9-10 year olds are in a cabin, etc. Occasional exceptions do exist to honor cabin mate requests, but a two year age gap is the maximum permissible exception.

What if my child gets homesick? Homesickness is common and natural when a child is separated from family, but you can begin preparing your child for a positive experience before camp begins.  For more info on preventing homesickness, check out this great article on CampPage.com. In a case that is not quickly resolved, the director contacts the parent to discuss options. We are sensitive to every camper's situation and will do everything in our power to ensure that your child has an enjoyable week at camp.  

How can I send great letters to my camper? Mail is a highlight of any camper's week!  Check out some great advice for writing your camper letters here at  SummerCampHandbook.com.

You may also drop off mail during registration with the camper's name and the date you wish us to deliver the letter. Letters and emails are delivered to campers at lunch each day.
