Safety | Healthcare | Special Needs
The safety of every camper is our highest priority. Campers are supervised
by counselors and staff 24 hours a day and are escorted by counselors,
Senior Campers or Program Assistants while walking around campus.
Day camper pick-up requires a password and overnight campers may not
Supervised Internet Access
The Internet is used in supervised workshops and during supervised
free time. Camp rules prohibit the viewing of inappropriate websites
at any time. Campers who bring computers from home may connect them
to the internet in the dorms. Camp rules require open dorm room doors
when campers are not dressing or sleeping, however, we cannot guarantee
that campers who bring their own computers will not access the internet
and make such access available to a roommate in violation of camp
Parents and the camper's physician provide important information to
us prior to the start of camp so that we know about the camper's medical
conditions and needs as well as any dietary, activity and other restrictions
and limitations. We encourage parents to call or email us to ask questions
or discuss any healthcare related issues.
Our camps are located within 3 miles of a hospital. Our Massachusetts
camp has a nurse and health supervisor on premises and the Georgia,
Illinois and Pennsylvania locations have a health supervisor. All
of our Directors, Assistant Directors and selected counselors are
certified in First Aid and CPR.
Health and Diet
Contact us and we will be happy to talk with you about special requests
for healthcare or diets.
Due to the complexities of administering a summer camp, a prospective
camper who may have a physical, emotional or other limitation, or
other restriction, that might require an adjustment to the physical,
educational or recreational program(s) or to any other aspect of camp
life must contact our office in writing by April 1st.
The types of limitations that require advance notice include, but
are not limited to, dietary restrictions (religious or otherwise),
visual, auditory, mobility impairments and emotional and psychological
impairments or other needs for program modification or adaptive equipment
or special medical needs. We reserve the right to determine whether
or not we can adequately meet the needs of any applicant and to decline
the registration of any individual when deemed appropriate.
