We do not accept any packages or oversized envelops for campers during the camp season. Any packages received from Amazon will be refused. If your child is missing sunscreen, bug-spray, shampoo, hair-brushes, tooth-brushes, toothpaste, water bottles, batteries, or any other necessities, please let the group leader know and WE will provide it. If you feel that you must send an urgent item, please call a Director prior to sending. Otherwise, please bring any requests from your child on visiting day. If your child has a birthday during the summer, we allow a Birthday Package (please see the birthday policy below).
If your child’s birthday falls during the camp season, we will make sure this day is very special for them! They will raise the flag, have a scheduled call home, be presented with a t-shirt, and have a cake in the Dining Hall. The whole camp will sing Happy Birthday, and a photo will be taken. We will host a party during rest hour for your child.
Please label the outside of the package with your child’s name and birthday. This package should not contain any food, candy, gum, party favors for the bunk, silly string, etc. It can ONLY contain a card and gift that is for your child. No bunk gifts.
Please do not send too many games and toys with younger campers. Your child must learn to take care of their personal possessions, the fewer the better! Nintendo DS, PSP & other personal electronic games are not permitted at camp. Skateboards, Hoverboards & Ripstiks are not allowed in camp.
While we understand your desire to share the delights of food gifts with your camper when you arrive for Visiting Day, please limit these treats to what they can consume in a 24 hour period of time. That evening the children have a giant bunk party and all of the food that is not eaten is thrown out! Again, Remember, no nut products of any kind are allowed on campgrounds! This includes products made in a factory that has nut products. Please call the camp if you are unsure about specific food items and their acceptability.
Bunk gifts create unnecessary competition in the bunks. They also create undue pressure on parents to purchase “like value” gifts as other parents have purchased. We do not want any child to feel in any way inadequate about the gifts they give or receive. Counselors receiving bunk gifts are in effect receiving a tip which is also against camp policy and philosophy. Please do not bring bunk gifts for any child other than your own on Visiting Day. Bunk gifts are not permitted.
Examples would be cash, gift cards or other gifts given to staff members. This helps us to maintain a professional atmosphere necessary for sound camping. All of our employees are aware of this policy, and any gesture of this nature would be embarrassing to all concerned. Staff members who violate this policy may be subject to dismissal. The best gesture you can make toward a deserving staff member is a personal thank you and a note to the Directors.
