Prepare for Camp


Planning for camp can be a stressful endeavor.  To avoid the stress, begin the process early. Download and print the Camp Prep Checklist to assist with the preparation process.  Involving your camper in some of the process will help ease any anxiety as he will know what to expect as he travels to Camp and settles in to his new home away from home.  As you prepare, please call or email the camp office with any questions you or your camper may have.


Our Camp Packing list is only a guidline for what we have learned is a good starting point for packing.  You may find that your camper prefers more or less of certain items and that is ok.

After you enroll your camper, we will send you a Parent Handbook.  You may expect this book to arrive in mid-March.  In the meantime, click above to see the required forms for Camp attendance.  You may download and fill out the forms electronically to send via email or through your Bunk1 account.

Travel Info

Campers travel to Camp on Mondays and return home on Sundays.  Parents and/or guardians make all travel arrangements to and from Camp.  Our camp tuition does not include transportation costs (chaperone, bus and/or luggage fees).

Bunk Notes

Bunk Notes are made available through a company called Bunk1.  This fee service allows you to send an emailed note to your camper.  We will print out the note and give it to your camper with regular mail.  You may also opt to attach a reply sheet for your camper to respond.  Click for more info.
