Can a parent visit a camper?
Yes. However, visits are generally discouraged as it can create homesickness (read this article to learn more) and be a disruption to the camp activities. If it is deemed critical to visit, please call in advance to make the arrangements with our office and so that we can arrange for the camper to be pulled out of the activity that is happening when the visit happens.
