General Weekly Reminders

* The camp phone number is 781-329-3500. Please be sure you contact us in the event that your camper is going to be absent.  It is equipped with voicemail so please leave a message if no one answers.

* The Lost & Found is located in the Rec Room.  We will do our best to reunite campers with their lost items during the week but anything left behind will be placed in the Lost & Found.

* If you are sending in payments (camp, extended day, etc.) please inform your child's counselor or other camp staff so we know to look out for it and get it to the Main Office.

* If you need to pick-up early please let us know so we can have your camper ready for you at the appointed time.

* Counselors will be on duty every morning at 8:45 am to help your camper out of the car.  Please do not leave your car during driveway as we have a constant flow of vehicles to get in and out.  We don't want cars to be hanging out into the intersection.  Afternoon pick-up will begin at 3:45 pm, the campers participate in camp activities, including the pool, until 3:30 pm.

* After 4:15 pm it is okay to park and come in to pick up your camper as afternoon extended hours will begin at that time.  If you use extended day in the morning please escort your camper to a counselor to sign them in.

* Please DO NOT SEND electronics, phones, toys or other devices to camp.  Also, DO NOT SEND personal archery equipment to camp.  All of these items are not allowed at camp per the DCH Summer Camp Parent Handbook.  DCH is not responsible for these items if they get lost, stolen or broken at camp.

* Be sure that your camper has their morning snack in their backpack and NOT in their lunchbox.  Lunches go into group bins and packed away in our refrigerators and may be inaccessible until lunch time.

* There is a cookout every Friday.  As long as your camper likes hamburgers and hotdogs you do not need to send your child with a lunch.  Please still send snacks!

* Fridays include skits that the campers prepare each week in Drama.  Parents are welcome to attend.  Skits will be performed right after the cookout on Fridays and will begin at approximately 1:00 pm each week.
