Split Term A (2 week)

The schedule is as follows:

During lunch at 1, our usual time, in the dining hall we will call out campers names and give each a packet and a tepee photo.

After lunch is dismissed, they will make their way to meet you at the Office and Grand Patio area (beside the Village, where check-in took place). We ask that you not arrive before 2 P.M.

We will have their luggage there for you to load up, and there will be cold water too. We also have a freezer with Blue Bunny novelties that we are happy to share!


Be sure to check out your camper’s activity portraits and purchase if you wish, and we will be offering “bribery” to all the campers who sign up for next summer before leaving. Subtle, I know! It’s a system set up many summers ago–and we’ve used it ever since.

No Pets Please

Please do not bring your pets on opening or closing day! It is very hot, and there are not many places for them to get out of the heat. There are a lot of people around camp on these days and we have had issues with dogs in the past. We feel the simplest way to avoid this and keep everyone happy is to leave them at home.
