Session Length

Children make friends and become campers very quickly. But seeing growth, especially in their activity skills, takes a little more time. There are just no shortcuts to learning a roll in kayaking or a bar chord in guitar. 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 one 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 for boys rising 4th grade and below. It allows families to give camp a try, building confidence to come longer the next summer. Another fantastic way to gain confidence for two weeks at camp is to come to our Father Son weekend in May!

Enrolling a Camper

The best way to get the ball rolling is to apply online. Once you have completed your application, we will contact you by phone or email.

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 the deposit ($1,000), followed up by an acceptance letter from camp. Tuition can be paid by check, E-check or credit card. Please note that there is a 3% service charge when using a credit card.

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.

How do refunds work?

Deposits are refundable, less $300, 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 ($1000). 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 duffel 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.
