Sleepaway camp is an incredibly special experience and we work hard to make our camp feel like a home-away-from-home. We have a robust team of directors, counselors, lead counselors, kitchen staff, and our camp nurse that are passionate about making your child feel safe and happy at camp.
As a parent, it’s normal to feel nervous sending your child away to camp for the first time. That is why we take extra care to ensure that when you drop your child off for their week at camp that you feel confident and ready for this new experience. Once registration is complete, we provide first-time sleepaway camp parents with the resources they need to prepare their child for the first overnight camp experience.
Our camp is licensed, inspected, and follows all safety regulations set by the Maryland Department of Health for youth camps. Our staff are highly vetted, background checked, and hold active First Aid & CPR certifications.
Our staff are kind, inclusive, and love working with children! They are there for anything your child might need during the week – whether they need a snack, someone to talk to, feel like they miss home, or they’ve run out of sunscreen midweek. Our staff are passionate about making sure that camp feels like home to your child.
Our camp staff are all specially trained to respond to homesickness when it happens. All of our counselors are there for anything your child needs throughout the week. Counselors will listen to your child’s feelings and help them feel safe in the new environment. Whether it’s 12:00 pm or 2:00 am, we are there your child.
We help campers bring their familiar routines with them to camp (when possible), find engaging activities to participate in, find things in common with other campers, and talk about how they are feeling in a supportive environment.
Please note: Although homesickness is a challenging feeling to experience at camp, it’s entirely normal! We will help your child feel safe and grow from those feelings. Oftentimes, by the end of the week they don’t want to go home because they’ve had such a fun week at camp!
Campers are unable to call home during their week of camp. Campers are always welcome to send or receive letters while they are at camp.
If your child will need prescription medication, over-the-counter medication, emergency medication, homeopathic remedies, vitamins, etc while they are at camp, they must comply with the requirements below.
Our Camp Nurse will be in charge of all medications at camp for the safety of all staff and children on-site.
You MUST complete the medication administration form. This form must be signed by both the parent and the child’s physician.
Emergency medication will remain with the camper who needs it. A Camp Counselor will store the Epi-Pen, Inhaler, or other Emergency Medication in the medical backpack for the child’s group.
Non-emergency medication will be stored in a locked medicine cabinet inside of our nurse’s office (or a locked box on field trips).
Most of the time, activities can continue on as normal! We strongly recommend packing good rain gear in your child’s bag in case of wet weather. Our camp has many indoor spaces to take cover from the rain – pavilions, our large dining hall, cabins, and even buses that have been converted into activity spaces!
In the event of severe weather, like thunder or lightning, all outdoor activities will stop and campers will take shelter in our dining hall.
Some of our camp programs do include campfire meals. When you fill out your health form, please make sure to list all food allergies your child has so that we can make sure they have something they can eat the day(s) that they will be campfire cooking with us. We can accomodate most common food allergies or dietary restrictions.
If your child’s food allergy is airbourne or a contact allergy, please make sure to note this on your child’s health form so that we can work as a team to keep everyone safe at camp.
No electronics or cell phones (including smart watches) are permitted at camp. Please keep them at home. Our program is designed to help campers stay in the moment and enjoy their adventures at camp to the fullest, unplugged.
Campers may write home whenever they would like. Additionally, campers may receive mail from others while they are at camp.
In an emergency, camp will contact parents/guardians and emergency contacts.
Parents/guardians may also call or email the Camp Director as needed.
We serve a variety of tasty, warm meals in our dining hall!
Our kitchen team works hard to prepare meals made with love that are delicious and help campers fuel up for the high level of activity they’ll be doing at camp each day.
Menus may change from summer to summer. Snacks are available to campers throughout the week.
Below are some examples of meals you might see in our dining hall!
