-Phone calls are not necessary, but one can be scheduled before Visiting Day and one after Visiting Day. You can schedule your first call once your camper arrives at camp.
-NO packages, please! If a necessity is inadvertently left behind, please call the camp office for a pre-approval code so that your package will be accepted and delivered to your camper. We do allow birthday packages, so please clearly label these as birthday packages with your child’s birth date. Remember: NO food is allowed!
Photos from the day will be uploaded to CampInTouch almost every night. You can access them using the same login you use to fill out forms.
Expert tip: Mail a letter to your camper a few days before camp starts so that there’s one waiting for him on the first day of camp.
