One of the things we have learned over the years is how much parents love to see pictures of their children while at camp. That is why we partnered with the tech start-up, Camp Connect, to provide a more personal & individualized experience for you and your family.
Camp Connect keeps parents connected with their campers throughout the summer. Utilizing their App’s unique camera functions, our camp photographers will capture each campers’ most exciting moments.
Here’s how it works!
Before the start of camp, Camp Connect will send you an email with your username and password. Just download the Camp Connect App, or go to the Camp Connect website, and log in! You’ll notice that each child has their own individual folder. Right now, there is nothing in them, but as the summer goes on they will be filled with pictures of your camper!

Please note: Only one parent per camper will receive an email with a username and password. That parent will then be able to share their account login information with their spouse, as well as with grandparents, aunts, uncles, and friends; an unlimited number of users can be logged into an account at any given time.
Who will be taking the photos?
Our staff is assigned to specific divisions. Throughout the week, they will capture as many candid shots of that division’s campers. Once they take the picture and tag your child, it will be sent through the Camp Connect App directly to your smartphone, tablet, and computer. No more searching through hundreds of photos; you can now follow your child’s camp experience with ease!
Can I keep and share the photos?
YES! These pictures and videos are stored on your account forever. Not only that, you can easily save them to your devices, share them on social media, and text or email them to your friends and family. There are no additional fees and no watermarks!
Will photos still be posted to CampInTouch?
Definitely! Photos will continue to be uploaded to our Website via CampInTouch. However, with Camp Connect providing direct access to photos of your camper, the photos uploaded to CampInTouch will be geared towards capturing the general fun and spirit of the summer.
Campers who have birthdays during the summer may also call home on that day; however, we cannot allow for extra calls for a parent or sibling birthday.
Phone calls will be scheduled by DIVISION in order to facilitate our campers’ program and leagues. Calls will be made between 6:15 PM and 8:30 PM. You will be notified prior to the summer of your campers pre-scheduled calling dates. Sunday morning calls for our 1st Year Teens will begin immediately after breakfast, starting at 9:00 AM. 2nd Year Teens have Open Calling after one week of camp at designated times.
If the day of the week we’ve assigned is not a convenient time for you, you may make a permanent change to a different night.
If you must change your phone call night for a particular week, we will accommodate the request only once during the summer.
We cannot accommodate a specific time for your child to call unless you are on vacation, in which case we will arrange for you to call in to our office at a specific time. If you are going to be away, it is important that you provide us with your trip itinerary.
Books, magazines and stationary are fine to send as long as they are sent in a flat envelope (8×11 or 11×14). We reserve the right to check all incoming envelopes. Any envelopes that contain items that are not permitted in camp will be discarded.
As always, we will accept packages with essentials for your child. Essentials are limited to: essential clothing, toiletries and/or sports or activity equipment. Please speak with the Office prior to sending the item.
