Here we've collected questions we are commonly asked about camp.
How long has your camp been in operation?
The summer of 2023 will be our 38th year of operation.
What are the camp’s hours?
Campers arrive between 8:45 and 9 am. Dismissal for buses begins at 3:30 pm, and campers are picked up by car between 3:45 and 4 pm.
Is there a nurse present during regular camp hours?
Yes, we have a full-time Registered Nurse at camp during operating hours.
What are your protocols for operating safely during the COVID-19 pandemic?
The safety of our campers, staff, and camp families is always at the forefront of what we do. In summers 2020 and 2021, camp families put their trust in us, and through our partnership with them, we safely operated camp. Last summer’s Safety Plan can be found here, and we will be updating it for Summer 2023 as circumstances evolve. Please do reach out if you would like to discuss this further, as we know questions around this have a significant impact on decision-making about camp.
What does non-competitive mean?
Read about what being non-competitive means to us, and why we think it’s important.
How many campers are in each group?
There are 12-18 campers in each group. Groups are all-gender, and are put together based on age, grade and friend request.
How many counselors are with each group?
Most of our groups have 3 counselors.
How many campers do you have?
We maintain our numbers at an average of 250 campers. We’re proud that there are no crowds to get lost in.
Are you a peanut-free camp?
No, we are not peanut-free, but we are extremely peanut-aware! Every year we manage a number of campers with severe allergies to peanuts, other nuts, and other foods.
Is there a parent visiting day?
Parents can visit any day. Give us a call beforehand, if at all possible, so that we will be able to bring you to wherever your child’s group is when you arrive. (Policy yet to be determined for summer 2023 due to COVID-19).
Do you allow campers or staff to use cell phones or other digital media devices during camp?
No. We want our campers to connect with new friends, with the natural world, with themselves, and we would like to minimize obstacles that could get in the way of these things happening.
Does my child have to go on a camping overnight scheduled for their group?
No. But we always encourage and support campers in trying new things.
