Don’t forget your socks.

The beautiful rustic wilderness of Camp Copneconic is the perfect space for adventures in the woods, swimming in pristine waters, and enjoying s’mores over the campfire. It’s not so great for electronic devices. Check out the list of what to (and not) bring with you to camp.

What to Expect

Each week is set with a different theme allowing campers to use their imaginations whether it is capturing the evil sheriff, warding off a mysterious wizard, or searching for ancient clues to help save camp!

MONDAY CHECK IN

On Monday of your session, check in will take place between 8:00am-8:30am (unless you’ve signed up for early care which is 7am-8am.) Upon arrival at camp, our staff will direct you from one station to the next. Parents will remain in their vehicles throughout the entire check-in process. Once your campers have been checked in, they’ll exit the vehicle and make their way to their group at their tent.

To ensure check-in goes as quickly and smoothly as possible, please make sure that all the paperwork assigned to your family has been completed well ahead of your arrival at camp. We’ll have paper forms available, but highly suggest you complete your campers’ forms at least a week before your first camp session.

Forms are available on your account in Campintouch!

DURING THE WEEK

During the week, health screenings, temperature checks, and sign-in will all take place without leaving your car! Once all that’s taken care of, the camper will exit the car and be escorted to their group.

Check-out will also happen “curbside” without families leaving their vehicle.

Parents can log in to their camp in touch account to see photos from the session.

From time to time during sessions we post on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter updates about the week or photos. You can follow us on social media to see any updates that may be posted.

FRIDAYS

In summers past, we’ve gathered all campers and their families for an end-of-week celebration and show. In 2021, campers will be holding those celebrations as small groups, and camp staff will send information home outlining all the exciting things that campers accomplished during their 5 days at camp.

We look forward to holding end-of-week celebrations as a camp community in 2022.

Preparing for Camp

CAMPER GEAR

Many campers bring a backpack that they carry throughout the day with a change of clothes, beach towel, sunscreen, bug spray and a water bottle. Please be sure to label all your camper’s belongings in case they do not make their way back into the backpack. Don’t forget a backup mask!

THEMES & PROGRAMS

Each week has a fun theme that campers will enjoy with decorations and themed activities. Your camper is welcome to bring a costume or accessories for the theme if they want to dress up for the event. Ask your child’s counselor what day of the week this will happen.

UNPLUGGED

Please help us to help your child unplug for the week of camp. We ask that kids not bring cell phones to camp. Please don’t set the expectation that it is okay to break the rules by sneaking a cell phone into their backpack. Camp can be an immersive experience, but kids can be deprived of that experience if they feel tethered to home by a cell phone. If you’re worried they won’t have a way to reach you, explain to them that if they’re feeling homesick or not having a fun time, they need to speak honestly with their counselor or another staff member at camp so we can address their needs and concerns.

PARENT PACKET

The Day Camp Parent Guide contains a complete list of “What to Bring” and “What Not to Bring” as well as other helpful information as you prepare for your camp session.

Health & Safety

Your child’s health and wellness is our number one concern. To that end, the Health and Wellness Center opened Summer 2014 to provide the most up-to-date and comprehensive care available to our campers. And although it does not happen often, bumps and bruises do happen at camp. In case of more serious injuries our camp is given priority status at local Hurley Children’s Hospital to make sure your children get prompt, professional care.
