It’s very important to send an ample supply of prescribed medications with detailed instructions for their dosage and use. All medications should be in their original containers. Children should bring inexpensive clothing, shoes, toiletries, jackets, etc. For those parents driving their child to camp, detailed directions are provided. Don’t forget to give your child plenty of stationery, cards, and stamps to write home! Included in your confirmation packet will be information on how to contact your child(ren) via email.
Camp is a great place to wear your old clothes such as jeans, sweatshirts, or shorts. We do not require any special uniforms or equipment. Dances are held several times during the weeks of camp. Your child may want to bring along some fun, inexpensive “dress-up” clothes.
We are not responsible for lost or torn clothing or personal property. However, we will make every effort to locate your lost item.
Arrival times will be staggered to avoid large groups from congregating in one location. Participants and families will receive their drop off time prior to arriving. Drop off times will be strictly enforced. Early arrivals will not be admitted and late arrivals may be required to wait.
Family members will not be permitted to leave the parking lot, even for restrooms. We advise all families to use the restroom prior to arrival. There is a Dunkin Donuts at Exit 12 off Route 80 that we recommend stopping at. Families will unload the car while the participant visits the parking lot pavilion for rapid testing. Once a negative result is given, the participant will meet with Camp’s Medical Staff for general health screening. Families may speak with Camp’s Medical Staff regarding their camper. After screening, the participant’s counselor may help bring their bags to the cabin. To reiterate, only registered participants will be allowed into the main campus.
Pick-up times will be staggered to avoid large groups from congregating in one location. Participants and families will receive their pick-up time a week prior to arriving. Pick-up times will be strictly enforced.
Family members will not be permitted to leave the parking lot, even for restrooms. We advise all families to use the restroom prior to arrival. Parents/guardians will sign their participant out with the Camp Director. Camp’s Medical Staff will return any meds. Participants will bring their luggage to the parking lot.
All participants, staff, and volunteers should not have contact with anyone considered vulnerable under CDC guidelines until they have been symptom free for 14 days or test negative.
