Changeover Weekend

If your camper is registered for 2+ consecutive sessions, then they will be required to stay with us at camp during the weekend(s) between those sessions (called changeover weekends). Parents/guardians are prohibited from visiting or picking up campers during changeover weekend this year because of the COVID safety guidelines. If your camper is enrolled in consecutive sessions this summer, then you don’t need to do anything to register them for the changeover weekend(s).

Please note: The changeover program is only available to campers attending 2+ consecutive sessions. We’re not able to accommodate additional campers.

What You Can Expect

At the end of pickup on Closing Day, all changeover campers come together to form new cabins. Just like during regular camp, campers are divided into gender- and age-appropriate cabins.

Our Leaders-In-Training (high school seniors in our Leadership Development Program) plan the weekend for the changeover campers. Of course, our summer camp staff and leadership team supervise and support the LITs to ensure a safe and fun experience. All of our normal safety and supervision standards apply.

While every changeover weekend is a little different, campers get to enjoy having the run of camp while taking a little more time to rest and relax. Campers get to sleep a little later, spend time in their favorite program areas (like the waterfront and ropes course), and enjoy a movie night. Our chefs provide all of their meals and snacks.

During Opening Day, our leadership team helps the changeover campers move into their new cabins to start another amazing session of camp.

Visiting Your Camper

Parents/guardians are prohibited from visiting or picking up campers during changeover weekend this year because of the COVID safety guidelines.

Laundry Service

We offer a laundry service to changeover campers through a local vendor. We collect laundry from campers on Friday and then return it to them on Sunday. We simply charge campers for the cost of the laundry (usually around $12). We deduct the charge from their Camp Store account, so please make that a consideration when depositing money for your camper.
