- Camper mail and emails: Please remember not to send any food to your camper. Many children have dietary restrictions. Sending food through the mail just creates challenges for us. Please share this expectation with friends and relatives. As for camper emails, please note that our campers can only send written letters. Therefore, we ask that you make every attempt to send your camper written letters. For our international families or on very limited, special occasions, an email may be sent to your camper. We’ll print it and deliver it. Please send these emails to email@example.com
- Planning a visit: Please be sure to consult with Garth or Henry before planning a visit. Visits can be fun but are not necessary and could be disruptive to your camper’s experience, especially for our 3 1/2 week campers. With this in mind, we want to make sure that all visits will first be beneficial for the camper. Often, joining us for a meal is the easiest and least disruptive way to visit. If scheduling a visit is beneficial, we will share your request with our summer office administrator (firstname.lastname@example.org) who can help finalize the details.
Our second session is off to a wonderful start. On Sunday, we welcomed 126 campers to Chewonki. Our first few days focused on getting our new campers oriented and settled in. Activity tours, swim checks and health checks have given way to new friends, early morning birdwalks, and our first epic game of Capture the Rocks between our two teams, the Sags and the Hocs on Monday evening. We’re slowly welcoming back our 7-week campers from their intersession wilderness trips, with Outhaul returning on Monday, Quarter Deck returning today, and Shang-Tu and Xanadu set to return on Wednesday. Tuesday was the first full day of regular activities and Tuesday evening was cabin night for the Herons and Ospreys and group night for the Puffins and Owls. Cabin photos have been posted on our Flickr photo site, and we’ll be adding more photos daily.In the meantime, here are a few administrative details to share:
