Where will my girl sleep?
Campers are assigned sleeping units/areas based upon camper age and sometimes the program they registered for, such as equestrian or the CIT program. We try to assign the youngest campers to the units that are cabins. Please note that if your child is sleeping in a cabin, there are camp staff living with them in the cabins. Campers may sleep in platform tents, which sleep four campers each. We encourage you and your girl to attend our Open House so that you are familiar with all of the sleeping units at Camp Laurel.
What will my girl eat?
Food service staff at Camp Laurel prepares a variety of pleasing and nutritious meals appropriate for children. Camp serves plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, eggs, and breads. Camp Laurel day campers receive lunch daily in the dining hall for no additional charge. All campers at all camps receive a snack each afternoon.
Can special diets be accommodated?
We do offer a vegetarian alternative at each meal. If you have allergies or special dietary needs, please contact the Camp Director prior to camp to discuss your requirements.
Can I visit?
Each camp will host an Open House in the spring. Families are welcome to see and tour the camp as well as meet the Camp Director and staff. Parents may not visit their camper while camp is in session.
How can I contact my girl during camp?
In your parent information packet, you will receive the mailing address and information needed to contact your camper during her stay. We encourage you to write your camper, but remember it is often necessary to post-mark mail prior to her departure to ensure she receives it in a timely manner. You can also leave letters at check in with their name and date on them and we are able to give them to your camper while at camp
Can I send my girl to camp with food to share?
No, thanks! To keep camp critter visits to a minimum, please don’t send food of any kind with your daughter. If your daughter has dietary restrictions please contact the camp director before camp starts to discuss the options available.
Can I mail a care package?
We discourage packages mailed from home. If you feel you need to send your camper something during a one week stay, please remember that it could arrive after her stay at camp. It’s best to leave the package with the office at drop off with her name and date to give it to her.
