Letters from Home – A Camp Tradition
Campers do not have access to computers or telephones while at camp but can write letters home. There is something truly special in this age of electronic communication about holding a letter in your hands that was written by those you love the most.
Parents are encouraged to regularly write supportive letters that reinforce their care for their child and are focused on the child’s camp experience. Try to time the arrival of your first letter for the first or second full day of camp. News from home is fine, but should downplay all the special events that the child may be missing back home such as family reunions or 4th of July festivities. Please be sure to include your child’s cabin name in the address.

In cases of family travel, international families, or other circumstances that make it difficult to mail a letter, email may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. These messages will be printed and delivered to your child, but your child will not be able to reply by email. Please limit these emails to 3 per week.
