Can my child be in the same cabin as last year?
A:
Cabins are assigned according to age, so, unless your child has discovered the fountain of youth, it’s unlikely that they will be in the same cabin as last year.  However, if they’re hankering for something familiar, let ’em know that they can always request a particular cabin mate or leader, to help ward off those “first night blues”.

Q: What if my child is sick?
A:
Sickness spreads very quickly in the contained environment of camp.  If our staff become sick, we may need to cancel weeks of camp depriving other children of the opportunity to attend.  For that reason we ask that you not send sick children to camp!  Please phone and we would be happy to book you an alternate week of camp.  If your child is found to have been sent to camp sick, they will be sent home with absolutely no refund.  Thank you for your understanding.

Q. Do you have a dress code?  What will you be teaching my child? What church are you affiliated with?
A.
All these questions and more are answered under the Policies tab in the parent’s drop down menu.  Just sitting there, for your reading pleasure!
