Information for the Parents

As former counselors ourselves, we know just how crucial parental support is to our success as a counselor and we thank you for being the support system of this year’s counselors. We want to make sure to highlight the details of the areas parents tend to support the most- namely financially and with transportation- and to encourage you to reach out to our Directing Team if you have any questions or concerns!

  • Financially:

    • Counselor fee is 75% of camper registration.

    • Counselors are financially responsible for providing materials for their growth groups and activities they may lead during the week of camp.

  • Transportation:

    • Counselors are not allowed to drive themselves to and from non-local camp meetings.

    • Please note the All-Staff and Post-Camp dates and consider whether or not you will be able to assist with transportation at least once- you are highly relied upon for transportation for these meetings.
