OVERNIGHT CAMP FAQ
Q: Where can I find out what to bring, what to expect, when to arrive and all the information I need to come to camp?
Q: My camper is hoping to come to YLCC with a friend. Do you honour friend requests for cabins/groups?
A: With such a small program this year, there will only be one group per program. If you are registering your camper for the same program as a friend - no worries, they will already be in the same group!
We are not able to accommodate requests outside of program groups.
Q: What time are pick-up and drop-off?
A: We're still working out the quirks of the program, though we are expecting to run a very similar timeline to our usual schedule.
Registration will likely be at 4-6pm on Sunday, and Graduation will begin around 10am on Sunday.
Q: Can I visit my camper? I'm going to miss them lots!
A: Due to our camp days being SUPER full and each part of our curriculum-based program being imperative for your camper to participate in, we do not allow family members to visit. We STRONGLY encourage you attend your camper's Graduation Ceremony on the last day of their session to celebrate your leader's achievements and join us for a Staff Meet and Greet to follow.
Q: How do I communicate with my camper?
A: YLCC goes old school! Letters (snail mail) are a great way to stay connected with your camper! We encourage parents to send letters and well wishes from back at home. Magazines, fun articles, books and photos from home are encouraged. Snacks and candy are not encouraged (the mailroom critter's would be a bit too happy).
We also use a service called Bunk1 where you can email your camper and they will be given a printed copy of this email.
Phone calls are solely for emergencies.
Q: What is the Bunk1 code?
A: The Bunk1 code will be sent in Spring 2023.
Q: Are cell phones allowed at YLCC?
A: Nope! YLCC prides itself in being a place where campers can completely disconnect from the outside world and experience camp to its full potential. Plus, we don't want anything high-value getting ruined or lost while at camp.
Please leave cell phones and other electronics at home.
