Upon arrival, between 3:00 and 4:30, you will drive around the main lodge to the designated parking area, leave your bags in the car and walk to the lodge. There you will be met by staff members and shown to the registration table. While registering you will be asked about any recent illnesses and if you have any medications we will direct you to the first aid room to meet with our Camp Medic. You will receive your camp directory and a t-shirt if you ordered one and your cabin assignment. Then staff members will take small groups of campers and parents to the parking lot to get their bags and show them around a bit. There will be a lot of campers walking to their cabins and socializing, this is a good time to meet people but it is also important to get your stuff to your cabin so you can grab a bunk and get to orientation on time.
Camper Orientation starts at 5:15, this is specifically for the campers and will be a 45 minute period of welcoming, announcements, and games. If parents have any questions, Camp Director, Laura Bowman, will be available in the lobby from 4:30-5:00.
During Orientation, campers will hear about our camp policies and what is expected of them throughout the week (mandatory check ins and Mentor Groups, etc.).
After Orientation, campers will meet briefly with their Mentor Groups. Mentors will get a chance to introduce themselves and tell campers where they will be meeting each day...AND they’ll get to meet the small group of campers they’ll be spending time with all week. And then it's time to EAT!
After supper there will be ice breaker games to help kids get comfortable with each other and learn everyone's name. This usually goes on for quite awhile...as long as we're having fun, we keep it going. Participation is not required but highly recommended.
