Welcome to all of our DCH Summer Camp Families!

Below is important information about summer camp. 

 Camp Family Handbook 2021

Important Summer Camp Reminders:

* Please call the camp phone (781-329-3500) if your camper is going to be picked up early, or will be absent or late. Leave a message if no one answers.

 

* Camper t-shirts are handed out to all new campers each Friday of their first week of camp, unless you already picked one up at Meet the Counselors Day. 

 

* Morning drop off is from 8:45 -9:15am. Camp staff will help your camper out of the car. All parents and campers must be wearing a mask.  Please do not leave your car when in the driveway as we have a constant flow of vehicles to get in and out. Afternoon pick-up (for 2021) is from 4:00-4:30pm. Pull into the driveway and have your placard ready. If you need to come into camp to speak with your camper's head counselor or a member of our leadership team please park your car on the street or the Allin Church side of the building and walk your camper to the check-in table after the 9:15am drop off time.

 

* Extended Day drop off begins at 7:30am (Summer 2021) and last camper pick up is at 5:45pm (Summer 2021).  If you are using the morning Extended Day option, please park your car then escort your camper to a counselor who will sign them in. If you are using Extended Day in the afternoon, park your car and see a counselor to sign your child out. To register for Extended Day, contact the office at 781-329-5740 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Pre-registration for extended day closes the Wednesday before the session begins. 

 

* In 2021, we will not be storing lunches in our refrigerators. Please pack an icepack in your camper's lunch box. 

 

* Please DO NOT SEND electronics, phones, toys or other devices to camp. Also, DO NOT SEND personal archery equipment to camp. DCH is not responsible for these items if they get lost, stolen or broken at camp.

 

* We do our best to reunite campers with their lost items. Please LABEL EVERYTHING! Lost, unlabeled items will be donated or tossed at the end of each week (summer 2021).

 

* We will NOT have cookouts in summer 2021. Please still send lunch and snacks on Fridays! Unfortunately in 2021 we cannot have parents attend skits. We will be videotaping and will send them out after the session.
