Getting Here

First Time Families

 
 

Here are four things we want you to know!

 

#1: We take this seriously.

Camp is a whole lot of fun, but it takes a whole lot of trust to send your child away for a week. We have policies, procedures, and staff members in place to make sure we deserve that trust. We train our staff to keep an eye on campers' physical and emotional states throughout the week, including their water and food intake, homesickness, bug bites, general discomfort, and more. We have a nurse on staff each week to help us with issues that may pop up.

 

#2: Camp is a home away from home.

We're committed to making camp a home away from home for you and your camper. We keep our air-conditioned cabins clean and updated, and we work with our campers to make them as comfortable as possible. Our counselors aim to create a family unit within their cabins, and our program staff and leadership team members are basically cool aunts and uncles who love to check in. If your camper forgets something like a toothbrush or pillow, we have it covered! If they need some special grown-up attention, we've got that, too!

 

Away from regular routines, camp is a place where campers, staff, and parents can kick off their shoes and be their truest selves. Much like in your own home, failure is okay at camp. We want everyone to feel confident to try new things. Our community is here to support you along the way!

 

#3: We need help from you and your camper!

Sending your child to camp starts a very important relationship between your family and camp, and it's a relationship we hope to grow over many years to come. You and your camper are critical pieces of our summer camp puzzle.  

 

After registering, we'll keep you updated with information about camp through regular mail, email, Facebook, and our blog. We'll provide required forms, packing lists, and other must-have resources, and we'll also provide some pretty cool tools, like information about preparing your child for his or her first sleepaway experience, how to talk to your camper about camp, and more.

 

In return, we ask that you and your camper be open and transparent with us. The more information you provide on our forms, the better our staff can prepare your home away to home to feel truly yours. We know people sometimes hold back information because they don't want anyone to label them or their child, but we guarantee there are no labels at camp. Any information provided will be used to create a richer experience, and each camper will be approached with our core values of open-mindedness and love. Additionally, talk to your camper before camp and let them know they can come to our staff with any questions or concerns they might have while at camp!

 

Our phone lines are always open to you! If you have questions or concerns, or even if you'd just like to check in, our camp staff loves to help you get the information you need to feel at ease.

 

#4: Growth happens here.

Research shows that camp is a great place for children to build important life skills like grit, confidence, curiousity, gratitude, resilience, and self-control. Check out these articles:

 

At camp, campers face new situations and new people. Growth occurs because campers face challenges at camp, and that's a good thing! We train our staff to walk alongside campers in their experiences and to be there to listen and help when needed. Along with our help, campers can get through homesickness, arguments with friends, and anything else they encounter at camp!

 

Additionally, campers experience growth at camp because they take a break from technology. We don't allow campers to bring phones or other electronic devices to camp, and this leads to a week full of conversations and introspection. 

 

Next Steps

If you're still on the fence about camp, we'd love to have you join us for a tour! To schedule one, just email our camp director Allison Vining. You can also email or call Allison to address any other questions or concerns you have or even to get to know her.
