Siblings of returning campers can register on the same date as the returning camper. Returning campers and sibling may register online beginning March 13, 2014 starting at 9:00 a.m. Siblings will be able to register with the R number of the returning camper, if they already do not have one assigned.

The system is blocked from receiving registrations prior to the published date and time. Attempting to register prior to the published time will delay your registration process. ** Please note that the registration web site is best accessed using Internet Explorer.

Can my camper bring lunch?

Lunch is included in the cost of tuition; however, your child is welcome to bring his/her own lunch and healthy snacks.

Can I visit my camper during the day?

Yes, you may visit your camper anytime during camp; there is no specific parent's day. You must check in at Camp Base located in Hooker Hall to receive a visitor badge and you will be informed of your camper's location at that time. You must check-out at Camp Base prior to leaving. Please do not take your camper home without signing out at Camp Base.
