Frequently Asked Questions
If you were thinking of making the trip to Camp, we always love to show off the Camp. We suggest a pick-up at Camp, as opposed to dropping off on opening day.
Camp Mishawaka enlists a travel agency to assist with booking flights to ensure that campers are on the appropriate flight, campers from the same area are grouped together and arrangements for younger fliers are in place. For flights with 10 or more campers, we endeavor to have a Camp chaperone fly with the kids.
Each afternoon, campers pick from a list of activities happening that day. Some activities that happen in the morning can also happen in the afternoon though there are also many different offerings as well. Examples of afternoon activities are: soccer games, ultimate frisbee, basketball, floor hockey, tubing, nature hikes, snorkeling, fishing, and a whole bunch more.
Evening activity periods are different every day and usually include at least one “group game.”
Sundays are a bit different in that much of our programming is combined, and campers choose from a variety of activities, including mixed doubles tennis, sailing races and other group games.
For those who wish to get handwritten letters from your campers scanned and sent to you, you can choose to purchase CampStamps in your online CampInTouch account. Campers are able to respond by writing a letter on the CampStamps stationery that will find its way to your CampInTouch account – our Parent Portal for all things Camp. There is a nominal per page charge for this service.
There is still nothing that beats the impact of a letter via US mail, and that is best way to send news from home. Campers are required to write a letter once a week and encouraged to do so more often.
If your child is celebrating a special day (birthday) or there is a family event where a phone call is required we are able to arrange for this.
We post daily photos that help give parents a glimpse of a typical Camp day and see their children involved in activities.
You all went above and beyond dealing with Will’s food allergy. He raved about the special meals and I can’t tell you how relieved I was as a parent knowing that his allergy was being addressed and Will was eating well. THANK YOU!
