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


On Sunday of your session, check in will take place between 1pm-3pm. When you arrive, camp staff will direct you through a curbside check-in process- families will stay in their car and campers will exit once check-in is complete.

There will also be an area to drop off any letters or packages to be delivered to your camper during the week; you can drop them in the pre-labeled bins for which day you’d like them delivered. Please do not send any food, each session we have campers with special diets and different allergies, so to ensure their safety we have a “no outside food” policy. It also helps to us to keep critters out of the cabins!


During the week, parents can log in to their camp in touch account to see photos from the session. You can also purchase “Camp Stamps” which are credits to send your camper emails during their stay. This is a one-way service, so they are not able to email back to you. Credits can be shared with other family members as well and they do not expire.

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.


On the last day of the session, campers will pack up their belongings and have them ready to be picked up from the cabin at departure time. Camp staff will direct you through a curbside check-out process. Again, families will stay in the car through check out.

Preparing for Camp


All campers will stay on bunk bed style beds. Some kids bring a bottom sheet and sleeping bag, some kids bring sheets and blankets. It’s up to you what you prefer.

Camp Copneconic has a mix of rustic and modern cabins, so not all cabins have bathrooms in the building. Shower & restroom facilities are a short walk to a lodge if your camper is staying in a building without them.


We have activities that appeal to a wide range of interests and talents. Campers will participate in many activity blocks per day that are both challenging and fun. Every day will also include a special evening program!

Camp programs challenge campers to explore nature and the outside. Activities include waterfront and lake adventures, teambuilding in the wilderness, high adventure and more.


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 luggage. 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.


The Overnight Camp Parent Packet 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.
