How are homesickness and other adjustment issues handled?
It is our goal to make sure that each and every child has a positive experience at camp. We know that every child reacts differently to being away from home and our staff is prepared to give each child the individual attention they require. Our social workers are available to help with the adjustment process and talk through appropriate issues. If homesickness becomes so intense that it interferes with the child’s overall camp experience, parents will be notified by a member of our Leadership Team.

What if my child wakes up in the middle of the night? 
Counselors live in cabins with campers and are always there for campers who make wake up in the middle of the night for whatever reason.

 

What if my child forgets to bring an important item or clothing to Camp?
