SUNDAY FAMILY ORIENTATION

Join us for our Family Night Orientation/Meet and Greet. The campers will have a chance to meet their counselors while the families will have a chance to see camp and ask questions. At the Family Night, we will meet in Klinger, the Dining Hall, at 4 p.m. This is when the families will receive a finalized copy of the schedule for the week, campers can sign up for their mastery program, and the Day Camp Director will answer any questions. Campers can also receive their care package and view other items at the camp store.

Next, families will have the option to go on a tour of camp with the counselors or go to the day camp barn for a craft and s’mores. Don’t worry, the craft and s’mores will still be available after the tour.

Finally, the campers will receive a passport for the week before heading home with their families for a good night’s rest before the first day of camp!

The Family Night will be each Sunday from 4 p.m. to approximately 5:30 p.m.
