How will I know how they are doing?
Campers are asked to write home on Wednesdays and Sundays. The camp provides the stationary and postage for this activity. Away camp is a special opportunity for your child to grow and make his or her own discoveries. With this in mind we ask that parents only call their campers if there is a special event such as a birthday, or an emergency. The best time to call is at meal times. We respectfully ask that calls be limited to 5 minutes. Cell phones do not work at Woodcraft nor do we allow satellite phones or the like at camp. Incoming mail, email and faxes are allowed and should be addressed to your camper using the general camp mail, email addresses or fax number. Your child will not have access to send email or faxes. We will of course contact you immediately if there is an issue concerning your child.
Our directors welcome calls from parents at anytime, even for just a brief check-in. Parents’ Day is also an ideal time to meet with counselors and administrators to discuss your child’s summer. In addition, before the end of each camp session you will receive a letter from your child’s counselor summarizing activities, awards and the trips taken by your child.
