Helpful Links:


All Payment and dues should be completed 3 weeks before the camper arrives to camp for their scheduled week. Campers cannot attend camp unless their account is settled and paid in full. Not paying the full amount by 3 weeks before, may cause your camper(s) to be unregistered from the session. 

Send Letters to your campers

Camper families can write letters to their campers to be delivered at lunch throughout the week. We recommend bringing them to Camper Check-in. Families can also send emails to [email protected] that will also be delivered during lunch. Make sure that the camper’s name & day you would like it to be delivered. Check”How can I send great letters to my camper?” in FAQ for more info!

Frequently Asked Questions:

Are scholarships available?

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 two years. 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. We suggest letting them stay over at a friend’s or family member’s house for a night or two to prepare them. 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! You may also drop off mail during registration with the camper’s name and the date you wish us to deliver the letter. You may also email camp on the day you will like your email to deliver to your camper. Letters and emails are delivered to campers at lunch each day. If mail comes after lunch, campers will receive it the next day. We do not recommend sending mail through mailing services, because it is not guaranteed that it will arrive at camp while your camper is here.

What about refunds?

Your $100 deposit fee is non-refundable. If you must cancel a session for any reason, notice for session changes or cancellations may be sent via email to [email protected] or by phone at 419-938-3715. If a camper’s session is canceled for any reason, the deposit is not refundable. All additional amounts paid towards a camp session will be refunded if cancellation is made at least 30 days before the start of the scheduled term. If a cancellation is made less than 30 days before the start of a scheduled term NO REFUNDS ARE available. In case of homesickness or dismissal from camp due to disciplinary issues refunds are not available.
