Parent and Camp Communications

In today's age of immediate communications and apps that track children from home to school and back again, it can be challenging to be "out of touch" with your child for up to four weeks.

We get it. That's why Camp is intentional about sending home letters from your child's counselor, posting as many pictures of Camp life as we can, and also doing our best to get your camper to write their own letters home. 

Camp to Parent Communications

We will email letters from the counselors to you by Sunday or Monday of each week. We also encourage campers to send letters home. Pro tip: Pre-address letters to make this easier for your Camper.

Additionally, we will contact you if we have any concerns about your child’s social, emotional, or physical health. You can count on us to reach out in the following situations to partner with you to best support your child:

  • Your child is staying overnight in the health center
  • Your child will need a new prescription or repeated over-the-counter medication
  • Your child needs to go off-site for medical care for any reason
  • Your camper is experiencing a mental health challenge or prolonged homesickness
  • Your camper has violated our code of contact

You can reach the Health Center at any time by calling the main Camp number.  After the office has closed, there will be an option to connect you to the Health Center staff.

You can email your Camper each day through Bunk1 with updates from home. The emails are printed and distributed each day. You are also welcome to send your camper letters through the United States Postal Service. (Please no packages).


Bunk1 photos provide you with a snapshot of life at Camp. Photos will include images of activities, evening programs and birthdays. We post on Bunk1 three times a week.

Due to our expansive grounds and extensive activities, we cannot guarantee photos of your camper. These snapshots of Camp may reflect the previous day’s events or other special moments during the session. 

We are providing all parents a free download through Bunk1 of their camper's official cabin picture with the discount code: CABINPIC. 

Photos are uploaded Monday, Wednesday and Friday by 5 p.m.
