Camp Registration form for 2014: Click Here

Something New!~~”Extended Day Campers”
It will be an additional $100 for the week and will allow your registered camper to continue his or her day of activities until 4pm! *The camper must be registered for that week and can’t sign up only for afternoon hours. Enrollment must meet with a minimum of 12 campers for that week to be eligible for “Extended Day Campers.”

What to Bring and Wear:
Dress comfortably! Hats, hiking boots, and insect repellent are all highly recommended. Please feel free to wear your own period clothing. Due to the heat and constant physical activity during camp, we recommend that all campers bring a water bottle in addition to their lunch beverage.

What if it Rains?
Camp takes place rain or shine! In case of rain, please send appropriate rain gear with your camper. Unless we encounter severe weather, we will spend much of rainy day weather working on projects under the camp tent, but also might venture out in the light rain.

Daily Schedule:
Please drop off your camper promptly at 9 am at the visitors center parking lot. Campers should bring a bag lunch. Please make every effort to pick up your camper promptly at 1 pm. If campers are not picked up on time, a fee may be charged to compensate for the camp staff’s time. If there is an emergency situation, please contact us at (610) 459.3342 as soon as possible and we will do everything we can to assist you.

The Camp Staff thanks you for your cooperation!
