We’re parents too, so we totally understand that safety and security are your main priorities.
First, the safety of all campers is paramount. Our philosophy is always to err on the side of caution when dealing with extreme weather, heat, or even the remote chance of natural disasters, regional/national emergencies, etc.
But for the “everyday” concerns, please know that Camp Regis Applejack is patrolled by staff after the campers go to sleep. Counselors are “on-call” or “on-duty”at all times, except for the 36 hours off they have per week.
I’m concerned that my child might have a hard time adjusting to life away from home. Will I be able to keep in contact with them?
Our purpose is to provide a worthwhile and stimulating summer experience for your children. Parents of all new campers will receive a phone call from a Director or Head Counselor within the first 72 hours of sleepaway camp, informing them of their child’s adjustment. We ask that you never hesitate to communicate with us regarding any question concerning your son or daughter. Also, please be assured that we will be in touch with you should there be any issue with your child.
You may also check on your child’s camp activities and view daily photos on our secure site, accessible only to parents, invited family members and staff. This is your link to staying current with your camper during the summer! We post new photos each day.
You can also send letters and emails to communicate with your camper during the summer. We will print out all emails and deliver them to your child along with daily mail, though we have found that hand-written letters have a certain timeless charm. Campers love to hear from you no matter what!
