How to contact your camper

Campers love mail! Please allow at least 3 days for standard mail to reach camp.  Keep in mind that for shorter events, you may need mail letters before you camper leaves home.  You are also free to leave letters for your camper with a staff member during check-in to be distributed throughout the event.  Notes from home will make a great experience better.
