PHONE CALLS

All campers will be allowed to make one phone call to their parents (divorced parents, please call the office directly) during their stay at camp. Campers will call in the at the end of the first week of each session.  All calls will be made from 6:30-8:00pm.  You will be notified prior to the summer of your campers pre-scheduled calling date.

PACKAGES

In an interest in placing the emphasis in camp on activities and friendships, we have eliminated packages.  Books, magazines and stationary are fine to send as long as it is sent in a flat envelope.

We must insist that you not send ANY packages to camp. IF THERE IS A SPECIAL NEED, PLEASE SPEAK WITH THE OFFICE PRIOR TO SENDING THE ITEM. We will not be accepting packages that are not in a FLAT envelope; all other packages will be refused and sent back to the shipper. We reserve the right to check all incoming packages. Please help us by alerting all friends and relatives.

BIRTHDAYS

We know that Birthdays are VERY important to you and your child and they’re equally important to us!  We want to make it as HUGE as possible for the birthday girl or boy.

If your child has a birthday while at camp…

  • The entire camp will sing our special TLW birthday song at morning lineup!
  • We offer a birthday party menu where campers get to select a themed event, complete with BIRTHDAY CAKE with their bunk mates.  Campers will have the opportunity to select between a variety of themed parties including:
    • Pool Party
    • “Wheels” themed birthday complete with go-karting
    • Special Arts & Crafts
    • Alternative themes created based on request and availability
  • They will receive an in-bunk movie party at bed time with their bunk! 
  • Our special birthday camper will have a phone call with you. We ask that you schedule the time in advance similar to regular phone calls.
  • On their birthday, campers are allowed to receive a Birthday Package (please no food/candy or bunk gifts).  Please write “Birthday Package” on it and we will hold it in the office until we deliver it on your camper’s birthday!
