The Parent and Camp Relationship

Our relationship with you begins when you speak or meet with Grunie and we learn about your child.

We continue to learn about your child through our Parent and Camper Questionnaires.

Throughout the summer your child’s Division Head monitors your child’s day to day experience and maintains periodic communication with you.

Our Division Heads and Directors are always available to speak with you about any questions or concerns you may have.

We keep you informed with daily pictures and reminders as well as a weekly newsletter.

Look for our weekly reminder email on Sundays.
