SUMMER CAMP FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How is Covid-19 going to change camp in 2021?

The short answer is we don't know, exactly.


Here is what we do know. We will have to wear masks, a lot. The good news is that we won't have to wear them when we are sleeping, eating or swimming.

As always, the safety of our campers is our #1 priority. We are committed to having a fun and safe summer while following all state and local guidelines. 

We will be making adjustments to our schedule and activities to make it safe for our campers. While camp will not look exactly as it has in the past, we still plan to do as many of the things that make camp "camp" as we can. We are asking our campers to be flexible and come prepared to have fun.

Can I register my kid for multiple weeks of camp? 

Or, The week of camp I normally register my camper for is full, what do I do?

As of February 15, 2021, we are opening registration for 2021 at 50% capacity. We are asking families to register thier campers for only one week of camp at this time in order to allow as many campers as possible to attend camp.

If the week you camper wishes to attend is full, please join the waiting list. If we are able to increase our capacity the campers on the waiting list will have the first opportunity to register.

What time does check in start? When do I drop off and pick up my camper? 

Where is check in?

Check in begins at 3:00 pm on the first day of camp.

Pick up is at 10:30 AM on the last day of camp.

To mitigate the spread of disease, we are facilitating a drive through check in this year. Please do not arrive early at the camp as you will have to wait in your vehicle on Happy Hill Acres Rd.

Pick up is held in the Hayes Conference Center. It is on the right through the split rail fence, approximately 1/2 mile beyond the Cumberland Camp gate.

Once you are checked in you will drive your camper and their luggage to their assigned housing. 

What do I need to do with the medicine that my camper takes?

All medications need to be checked in with the nurse during camper check in. Please place all medications in a gallon sized ziplock back, in their original packaging. All medications and the bag should be labeled with the campers name.

What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept payment by credit card, or electronic check. All camp registration payments should be made through our camp registration website.

Can campers have visitors?

For security reasons we do not allow campers to have visitors during camp. If you have something that needs to be delivered to your camper please contact the camp office, they will arrange a time and location to meet you on the camp property that will not interfere with the campers.

Can I call my camper or can my camper call home?

Because of the logistics of the camp schedule we do not allow our campers to call home. We ask that family and friends of our campers not attempt to contact their camper through our paid or volunteer staff- they do not have the authority to release information about or pass along information to the campers. Our staff has been instructed not to allow campers to use their phones. All requests to contact campers should go through our camp office. 

In case of an emergency, please contact us through this email address, info@cumberlandcamp.org . You may also leave a message on the office voicemail but because of the nature of camp, email is the quickest way to be in contact with us during the camp week. 

 

If your camper has an emergency and needs to contact home we will contact you at the phone number listed in their ultracamp account. Please ensure that your contact information is accurate.

Can you have the camp photographer take more photos of my child? Why isn’t my camper in more pictures?

We offer camp photos as a service to our campers, to capture memories from the week and free campers from the need to carry a camera. Our desire is to capture photos of all of the events of the week, but we can not capture photos of every camper doing every activity. We cannot accept requests for photos of specific campers.

 

Also, we honor our campers decision to opt out of photos. For more information on our camp photos please visit https://waldo.photos/galleries  and enter the code you were given at registration.
