Staying in-touch while your daughter is away at summer camp will help in her quest to gain self-esteem and confidence. Here are the ways to do that:
Send letters or packages to Camp Jeanne d’Arc, 154 Gadway Road, Merrill, NY 12955. Please mark letters and packages with your daughter’s name and cabin (if you know it). Campers write home every Sunday and Wednesday unless they are out of camp on a hike or a canoe trip. Let us know if you do not receive two letters per week. Frequent, brief and positive notes or postcards from parents, relatives, and friends rather than long, occasional letters, are better. Small packages with fun things to do – not food which attracts critters into the cabins – are particularly welcome. These may be purchased at www.thewrinkledegg.com. If food is sent in a package, it is kept in the Chalet to be retrieved at a scheduled time for a party or quick snack. The regular mail is slow so plan packages accordingly. Suggestion: Mail a letter to your camper before she leaves so that it will be waiting for her at camp when she arrives!
