We post answers to questions we receive regularly. Please check to see if your question has been answered before calling or sending us an email. (We are always happy to talk with you) but checking here first usually saves time and a good healthy game of telephone tag.
Q: What are the rooms like?
A: All rooms are double occupancy. Each room has two beds, two dressers, two closets, two desks and one window. Rooms are not air conditioned and it is recommended that campers bring a window fan with them to camp. For a sample floor plan click on the web site housing link.
Q: My child has more than one friend she would like to room with. Can you accommodate this?
A: Rooms are double occupancy and no more than two campers are permitted to live in each room. If you have more than one friend coming to camp, please use the rooming tool on the camp web site to select rooms which are close together.

A: Please click on ”Forms for Camp” link to download the required forms. They are PDF files, so you must have the Acrobat PDF Reader to view.

Q: My child has a conflict during the week of camp (swim meet, softball practice, birthday party, etc.) can she/he be temporarily excused from camp?
A: Yes. We know how busy kids and families are these days and we will accommodate your schedule as best we can. Please note however that any camper who is checking out of camp must have her parents sign a permission slip and notify the Camp Director when leaving and returning. We do not pro rate the price of camp for missed sessions.
Q: My child has a conflict and cannot check in until Sunday night/Monday morning. Is this acceptable?
A: Yes. Please let us know approximately when you plan on arriving so we know to expect you.
Q: My Child plays both on the field and in the goal. Can he/she do both at this camp?
A: Yes. We encourage children to experience as much of the game as possible and this includes playing a variety of positions. Splitting time at camp between goalkeeper and field practice is not uncommon and is easily accomodated.
Q: This will be my child’s first “Away Camp” experience. How do you handle issues such as homesickness?
A: Every residential camp has campers who struggle with being away from home for the first time. Our staff is experienced in dealing with these types of issues but will always defer to the wishes of the parents. We realize that the first time away from home can be tough for both parents and children and generally we try and encourage the child to remain at camp. Sometimes however, it’s just too difficult for the child and a night at home becomes necessary. We will try and be as flexible and accommodating as possible however we cannot refund anything other than the unused portion of the room and board should a camper decide to leave camp early.
Q: My child takes medication. Can one of the staff members help supervise this?
A: Yes. While some children take their own medication, many do not. Our athletic trainers can assist your child with their medication if you deem this necessary. Simply let the trainer know what needs to be done when you check in and we’ll be happy to assist you. Be assured that our staff is discrete and will always respect your child’s confidentiality.
Q: My child has a food allergy. Can the camp accomodate her dietary needs?
A: Yes. If your child has special dietary needs or food allergies please download the Food Allergy form located on this web site. Complete the form, return it to us and our dining hall staff will make sure that her needs are met.
