Frequently Asked Questions
Questions from Parents
It’s perfectly natural for your daughter to miss you while she’s at camp. Even some of our senior campers and staff get homesick sometimes! The important thing for you to remember is that we have a loving and empathetic staff who will take care of your daughter and make sure she gets all the care she needs.
Your daughter will have two scheduled phone calls home during the summer. We will send you a phone call schedule this spring. Special arrangements will be made for campers with divorced or separated parents, or parents who are traveling outside the U.S.
We encourage all campers to write home at least three times a week. For junior campers, we recommend you pre-address and stamp envelopes for her. The mail is slow the first week, so please be patient—your daughter is writing!
Camp is the best gift you can give your daughter this summer, and we’ve found that allowing care packages creates an unhealthy sense of competition within the cabin. We can provide any incidentals your daughter may need (hairbrush, earrings, dental floss), and if there’s anything beyond that you should speak with the Parent Liaison to arrange it. Unauthorized packages will be held in the office until Visiting Day or the end of camp.
You can e-mail your camper any time you wish through the camp website—we’ll send you information in the spring about our “E-Mail My Angel” program. We download, print and deliver e-mails daily. Unfortunately, our phone lines at camp don’t allow us to receive a high volume of faxes, so we cannot accept faxes for campers.
Campers shower every evening before dinner.
Camp laundry is done twice a week, with additional “special wash” for bathrobes, swimsuits and leotards.
Movie tickets, theme park admissions and other trip costs are covered in your daughter’s spending allowance and trip fees. She will want some extra money for souvenirs. Information on how to set up a camper bank account will be sent to you in the spring.
We have a full-time nursing staff and camp doctor on campus at all times. Most illnesses and minor injuries can be treated without any problem in our health center; for further attention, campers can be taken to Wayne Memorial Hospital, a scant five miles down the road.
All camper and staff medications are dispensed by the nurses in our health center.
Yes, but that’s all she needs. Remember, we do laundry twice a week, so you don’t need to worry about sending extra clothing. And keep in mind that she’ll be coming home with a summer’s worth of art projects, letters and souvenirs packed into those duffels!
Your daughter will live in a cabin with a group of new and returning campers from a variety of cities and states. If your daughter has a friend at camp with whom she would like to bunk, we will try to honor that request. Cabin groups change each summer to allow campers to make friends with all the girls in each age group.
If you need to reschedule a phone call, discuss a travel itinerary, send a left-behind item, register your daughter for extra tennis or riding, or for general inquiries, please contact our Parent Liaison, who will either take care of your requests or channel them to the person on camp who can. For specific information or concerns about your daughter, ask for her Division Head, Jane or Dan. Please keep in mind that we are out on camp during the day interacting with the campers, so often we will not be in the office when you call. We check our mailboxes constantly, though, and we will return your call as soon as possible.
