Contacting Your Camper

Communication from friends and family is important to children away from home, and everyone loves getting mail at camp! Happy mail—not worrisome news or information on what she is missing out on—is the best type of mail to send. Please do not send food to your camper as it attracts bugs and other critters. If a camper receives food, it will be kept in the kitchen until departure.

We have a couple ways in which you can send messages to your daughter during her stay at camp:

Drop Off Mail During Check-In (Preferred)

When you drop your girl off for camp, you can leave any letters and cards you'd like your camper to receive while at camp with a member of our team. To ensure that it reachers her, please make sure to write your camper's full name, session, program, and the date you'd like us to deliver the note to her on the outside of the envelope!

Send Letters and Packages by U.S. Mail

If you choose to mail letters, please address them to your girl's camp, exactly as outlined below. Our counselors will encourage campers to write home as well! As mail to camp can be slow, consider sending mail a few days ahead so it will be waiting for her when she arrives.
