Please fill out our transportation form in your account to let us know the location where you will be traveling from; all campers will need to arrive at camp with a parent. More details will be sent as we get closer to the summer.

Per American Camp Association (ACA) standards, campers are not permitted to have over-the-counter (OTC) medicines in their possession. Under medical staff supervision, we provide OTC medications including Tylenol, antacids, Benadryl, Sudafed, Imodium, Mylanta, etc. Please do not send OTC medications to camp. 

Any prescription or OTC medication that is taken on a regular basis (including allergy medication), needs to be filed with Finksburg Pharmacy prior to the summer. 

All medication is distributed by our medical staff. All morning, noon, and evening medications are distributed at meals. Bedtime medications are distributed through the health center immediately following evening program. If your child requires a new prescription while at camp, you will be notified by phone, and camp will submit your insurance information. Parents/guardians are responsible for any/all reimbursement for co-pays and medications. 

The camp schedule is busy and often changes. Medications that help a child focus, for example, should be taken as they would during the school year. Environment can also effect medications, e.g., perspiration may alter effectiveness. We recommend that parents speak with their child’s doctor to see if any change is necessary.

All payments for Summer 2021 are now due. Please login to your account to make a payment.

Order camp clothing though bunkline.com year-round. Additionally, we sometimes have special pop-up stores during the year with new styles and logos.
