Overnight camp is for children who are or will be 7 to 16 years of age as of the start of the season which begins 7/7/24.
Our Counselor in Training (CIT) program is available to campers 16 to 17 years of age.
Arrival and Departure Times
Campers are to arrive at camp on Sunday between 1:45-3:45 pm. Departure is Saturday at 9:45 am. This new departure day is in consideration of family schedules and gives your children another day of camp fun.
On check-in day if the camper has not arrived by the end of the drop off window Camp Soles will call the contact listed on the registration.
For the safety of your child, picture identification is required to check out campers.
All fees are due no later than 30 days prior to your child’s arrival to camp. The deposit is not refundable and your child’s week will only be reserved upon receipt of these fees. There are no refunds for late arrivals, homesickness, or any child removed for disciplinary reasons. Camp Soles accepts cash, Visa, MasterCard, American Express and checks. Please note there is a $25.00 charge for all checks returned to Camp Soles.
Camp Soles camp store will be available on Check-in and Check-out day for the purchase of clothing and souvenirs.
A summer camp experience promotes group unity, cooperation, and teamwork. In an effort to help achieve this, we ask that campers do not bring cell phones, radios, or any other valuables. Campers in possession of electronics will be asked to turn them over to the camp administration for safekeeping. Camp Soles is not responsible for any damages or lost items.
Keeping Camp Informed
Please keep us informed of any changes in your child’s life that could affect his/her stay at camp (illness in the family, divorce/separation, etc.) While we respect every family’s privacy, accurate information will allow us to be more sensitive to your child’s needs and ensure they have a good time at camp.
Lost and Found
While our staff will make every effort to help your child keep track of his/her belongings, Camp Soles is not responsible for your camper’s personal possessions. All items left at camp will be kept at the camp office until the end of the camping season. Any items that are not claimed will be donated to a charitable organization.
Your camper’s health and well-being is of utmost importance to us. We will have staff certified in First Aid and CPR on site at all times during their stay. Camper medications will be distributed as prescribed and directed. Minor ailments and injuries will be handled at camp. Parents will be notified if any camper has an extended stay in the Health Center, has repeated visits to the Health Center or requires care by a Physician.
All medications in their original containers (prescription and over the counter) must be turned in to the Health Officer during check in. Prescribed and over the counter medication will be administered as directed on the bottle and must be clearly marked with the child’s first and last name. All prescribed medications must have the name of medication and name of physician labeled on bottle. You will be asked during the check in process when the last dosage occurred. This will assist us in ensuring medication is administered in a timely manner.
Our camp does not offer any nut products to our campers; however we do offer sunflower butter. Please note any food or environmental allergies on your camper’s health form.
We ask families not to send any packages with food to campers.
Bunk Notes and Pictures
Bunk notes is our one-way system of e-mail for campers. Parents can sign up for bunk notes during check-in. Parents can then e-mail their child and it will be delivered with all our regular mail. This is a one way e-mail system and campers will not be able to respond.
Photos of camp and campers are taken and uploaded to our Waldo site each day. Parents will receive a secure link via e-mail.
Camp Out Night
Cabins will be given a campsite and smores supplies, and head for one of our onsite outposts. Campsite locations are age-progressive to allow for the best experience possible for each age group. All campsites are located in close proximity of restrooms and indoor space in case of bad weather.
Cabins will cook smores over a campfire and spend enjoyable hours together under the stars. Campers will be asked to carry their own belongings (sleeping bag, pillow, etc.) Please help your camper out by sending a backpack.
Throughout the summer, the opportunity may present itself that your child’s picture may be taken for the newspaper or other publicity reasons. Please sign the Publicity Waiver form to allow your child’s picture to be taken.
Campers have the opportunity to stay at camp for 4 weeks and girls can stay for 5! Every Saturday campers that are staying for the next week get to experience camp on a modified schedule.
This year girls that would like to sign up for both week 4 and girls’ week will be able to do a stayover day at camp. Previously girls would have had to go home on Saturday and return on Sunday for check in but for 2024 camp will remain open for campers that are signed up for both weeks.
