Children become campers and make friends very quickly. But seeing growth, especially in their activity skills, takes a little more time. There are just no short cuts to learning how to roll a kayak, or to hit the tennis ball with topspin. And these sorts of milestones become important markers of growth for camp aged children. Because of this we recommend at least two weeks for first year boys.
What about 1 week? Most of our campers are ready for two, but we also understand that many parents are not! This is why we offer a Short Term session. It allows families to give camp a try, building confidence to come longer the next summer.
Enrolling a Camper
The best way to get the ball rolling is to apply on line. You can also download a printable camp application and mail it to camp if that is more convenient.
What Happens Then?
You will receive an email confirmation letting you know we received your application. If we are able to enroll your child you will receive another email saying we have charged their deposit on your credit card, followed up by an acceptance letter from camp.
After that you will not hear much from camp until we send you your camper packet in the spring. This will be a big document and will have all the information you need to get ready for camp.
Availability and Wait Lists
Camp generally fills early, though we often have spots come open as families plans change. If the session you chose is full you will receive an email letting you know and outlining other options. Often boys will enroll in a session that will work for them while remaining on a wait list for a session they prefer.
How Do Refunds Work?
Deposits are refundable, less $200, until February 1. There are no refunds after that date, for deposits or paid balances, so you will need to zero in on your plans before then. If you shorten a session (move from 4 weeks to 2 weeks, etc.) you will be charged a lost deposit charge ($600). If your camper is not able to attend because of a physical illness camp will share your loss with a 50% refund. We hate retaining tuitions, so please call if you have questions.
What kind of Luggage Should I bring to Camp? Do I have to mail it ahead of time?
We store luggage under the cabins after the boys arrive, so there is no need for a foot locker. If you would still like one there are plenty out there that hold up very well – but our favorite luggage option is the good old duffle bag. You do not have to ship your luggage ahead of time, unless your camper is flying, though many parents choose to ship luggage to lighten the load in their cars.
