We are delighted when parents visit camp, and we are always happy to show camp to prospective families while it is in session. Most parents of our four-week campers do not visit their daughters during the summer. While you are welcome to visit, please do not feel compelled to do so. Your daughter's experience will not be adversely affected if you do not visit!
Parents of four-week campers may either drop their daughters off at the beginning of the session or pick them up at the session's end, instead of a visit. Parents of eight-week campers may visit their daughters on the changeover day between sessions. You can plan on picking your daughter up between 9:33 am (no earlier) and 10:23 am, and returning her to camp the following day at 9:30 am (promptly!). You'll probably want to walk around camp a bit, but your daughter will be anxious to return to civilization (translation: take her to Hayward for pizza, Tremblay's fudge and a bath at your motel—those are the most typical priorities).
If you choose to visit, please stop in the camp office upon your arrival so that we may help you to find your daughter. Obviously, men should not enter the cabin without an invitation and an "all's clear!" Please don't bring pets, candy, food or gum into camp; please also refrain from bringing any food or gifts for the cabin or gratuities for the counselors.
Most of all, we hope you will enjoy yourselves at camp, have a good time and feel free to ask us for anything that you might need. We ask you to write us about your plans for visiting as early as possible (you can put it on the "Yo' Barbara, Gabe and Laura" form)
