When will I get more information about camp after registering?

You can view all of the info you will receive now, or wait until we begin sending more emails at the beginning of the summer.

Can my camper be in the same cabin with their friends?

We make the cabin lists by grade. We do not acccept roommate requests. If you are the same age as your friend, you may end up together. If you are more than a grade apart, you will almost certainly not be in the same cabin. Most cabins have two different grade level campers. A few cabins have campers from three different grades.

What discounts can I get?

This year you can get $100 off a camper's 2nd week, and then $100 off any additional weeks. You can also get $50 off for referring a new camper. The referral discount can be applied for the referral of a sibling who has never attended.

Can my child use a cell phone at camp?

No. We do not permit campers to use cell phones.

When should I get to camp?

How do I get to camp?

Address for GPS Units: 25 David Plummer Rd / Raymond, ME 04071

Be sure to note there are two Plummer Roads in Raymond. We are on 25 DAVID Plummer Road. Be sure to type 25 DAVID Pummer Road into your gps. If you do not type "David Plummer" the gps will take you to Plummer road, which is the wrong road

Some GPS units will tell you to turn off of 121 onto Panther Pond Pines Rd. This is incorrect. Once you are on Rt. 121, keep going until you get to David Plummer Rd. GPS units think that Panther Pond Pines Rd connects with David Plummer Rd, but it does not. Turn right off of Rt 121 directly onto David Plummer Rd. There will be a white sign with blue lettering for camp.

Can you pick up my kid at the airport?

Food Allergies

What if my camper has a food allergy?

Campers with food allergies or medical issues should contact Peter Slovenski at peter.slovenski@gmail.com

From the parent of a camper with food allergies: "Alex said he felt just as safe at camp with his peanut allergy as he does at home. Thank you so much for creating such a great environment for him with his allergy, it’s such a relief to know that he feels so comfortable, and has so much fun."
-Abigail Labbe, ajlabbe@comcast.net

Sending Mail

Can I send mail to my camper?

Please do not send mail to campers. The mail system between the Raymond Post office and our camp is very slow, and it usually will not make it to us in time. You can give us any mail for them at check-in and we will deliver it mid-week.

Intersession

Can a camper stay at camp between two sessions?

Yes. Intersession is free. After a little free, campers eat lunch from 12:15 - 45. Then from 1 - 3 they take an extended rest hour. After that campers go tubing behind the motor boat if they wish and the weather permits. Intersession may also include some light camp improvement work like raking.

Is there laundry?

Yes. Campers who stay two or more weeks may use our laundry service free of charge. They are required to use our bright green laundry bags which will be picked up on Saturday and returned Sunday with clothes washed, dried and folded. In the event of a misplaced bag, reimbursement by the camp will be limited to $100, to cover lost shorts, t-shirts, socks and underwear. Please do not send expensive or irreplaceable clothing to camp.

Refunds

Can I just pay a deposit?

Yes. On the profile page, click the button that says "pay a deposit by credit card" to pay a non-refundable $250 deposit

What if I need to switch to a different week?

We can easily make switches between weeks as long as the week you are switching into is not full. Before April 1st you are able to make that switch yourself from your account. After that, please email us to request

What is your refund policy?

Before June 1st we can refund all but your $250 non-refundable deposit

Miscellaneous Questions

What do you do when it rains?

We have several large indoor buildings where campers can play board games, cards, make frienship bracelets, or play ping pong. Campers play more active games in the Colosseum such as volleyball or indoor soccer. If there's a longer period of rain, we often show a movie in the Colosseum on the projector. If there is no thunder and it is warm enough, we may continue playing some outdoor games, such as swimming, through the rain.

What do you do if there's a severe storm?

The Colosseum is the camp storm shelter. It was constructed in 2016. The parking lot surrounds the building so there are not any large trees that could fall on it. It comfortably holds the entire camp. During a storm, we gather in the Colosseum and watch a movie.
