Kids Camp - Weeks 1, 2 & 3
You will also need to complete the hard copy medical history/physical exam form. Please download and print this form.
If you have more than one child attending, please complete a separate set of electronic and health hard copy forms for each camper. You can send the completed health form to firstname.lastname@example.org or, bring the form with you when you drop your camper off.
The program will officially begin with dinner at 5:30 p.m. on the Sunday of your session’s beginning. We welcome you to arrive in the afternoon any time after 2 p.m. to help your Camper move into his or her bunk, meet the counselors, and settle in. If you find yourself running late, feel free to give the Camp a call at 276-686-4031. Since this may be your Camper’s first time away from home, we welcome you to bring some homey comfort items (favorite bedding, a special stuffed friend, a favorite toy or instrument) to ease the transition. We’ll have everything else on hand to provide an incredible time in mountain paradise!
The program will officially end with breakfast on the Saturday that your Camper’s week/s come to a close, and we ask that you come pick up your happy and adventure-weathered campers before 11a.m.
**If your Camper is joining us for the weeklong hike after Week Three, we’ll make sure that they have all of their gear ready to go and our hike will depart after breakfast on Saturday. You will need to pick your Camper up at the end of the weeklong hike by 11 a.m. on the following Saturday.
