A Note in Regards to Shampoo

The camp will provide soap and shampoo to ensure we are all using the safest products possible for the environment.


A Note About Snacks


Please, do not send ANY snacks with your campers.  Campers eat five times a day and will not go hungry.  This is also a matter of safety for the following reasons:

  1. Some campers have life-threatening food allergies.  You never know who will be in the cabin with your child and what their allergies may be.  Sometimes just a trace amount of an allergen is enough to trigger an attack.
  2. We are camping in the wilderness.  Critters including ants, mice, squirrels, raccoons, etc., usually leave us alone EXCEPT when there is food in cabins.

If campers have special dietary requirements or have health reasons for requiring specialized food and for that reason you wish to send items, please detail this on the registration form and hand in any food to the camp nurse upon arrival at camp.  We will safely store these items in the kitchen and make sure they are appropriately distributed to your child.
