NEW I have heard/read that your weekend is entirely run by volunteers/ parents. While I am there, can I help? NEW

Of course, depending on your comfort level of leaving your child during some of the activities. There are often many jobs that can be done. Kitchen help is often needed, as well as supervision of all the children (extra eyes are always helpful), assisting with a station or activity, or assisting with cleanup or setup throughout the day, to name a few.
Parents attending the weekend with their child is not only a great bonding event; It is a great way to help us put on a wonderful weekend.   Back to top

There will be multiple contact numbers posted in dorms and the main dining hall for parents to have, in case they need to contact staff over the weekend. Please make note of these numbers when dropping off campers.
