For the smooth operations of camp we do not allow phone calls to be made by our campers. If you become severely homesick or if there is a medical emergency, be assured we will allow you to contact home.

Is it fun?

Yes! We have so much for you to do. In fact many of campers come back year after year.

Respect everyone,
Use only good words,
Listen when others are speaking,
Enjoy yourself and help others to enjoy themselves, too,
Stay with your group.

Is it scary at night?

Nothing at all to fear! You will have your buddies in the same room with you, kind of like having a dozen brothers or sisters, plus your Counselor stays and lives in the same cabin as you, so they are no more than a few feet away from your room.
