Staying In Touch

First Time Away to Summer Camp, Camp Jeanne d'Arc NYStaying 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:

Visiting Days

Come visit your camper on July 27th and/or August 17. Check out the Visiting Day Schedule. RSVP here.

Postal Mail

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!

Secure Bunk Notes, Bunk Replies & Photo Galleries

Camp Jeanne d’Arc, along with hundreds of camps throughout the United States and Canada, use Bunk1 for families to stay connected with their campers.

 Send Messages to Your Camper with Bunk Notes

Bunk Notes is kind of like the “email version” of camp communication. Bunk Notes is accessed through our web site and/or your Bunk1 account. This is how it works. You will write an electronic Bunk Note to your daughter through Bunk1. You will attach a Bunk Reply, which is basically a blank sheet of stationary with a special code on top and bottom. She will then write a hand-written letter home in response to your Bunk Note. You will receive, by email, a scanned copy of the handwritten letter from your daughter. This email will arrive within a day or two of your original Bunk Note. Learn more about Bunk1. If you have any more questions about Bunk1 and how it operates, you may call Bunk1 directly at 1-800-216-9472 or email us here at camp at info@campjeannedarc.com. Please provide us with feedback about this service and this vendor. Family or friends that would like access to Bunk1 in order to send your camper a Bunk Note or view photos, will need an invitation code from you, the camper’s parent, or call the camp office at 518-425-3311.

Newsletters

If your daughter isn’t the best about providing details in her letters home, no fear; we’ve got you covered. Every evening we will publish a brief newsletter about the goings-on at camp on Bunk1. You will be informed about the weather, the food and the day’s activities. Be on the lookout for camp photos as well.

Secure Online Photo Gallery

We upload new photos 3 times per week to the Bunk1 site. If you have not seen a picture of your daughter in a few days, please let us know. Please be patient with us as the internet connection can be somewhat unpredictable up in the Adirondacks. We’ll do our absolute best.

TESTIMONIALS

Camp Jeanne d'Arc Will Live In Your Daughter's Heart Forever

What a wonderful place full of fond memories! My daughters are third generation campers. I went here as a girl as did my sisters, aunts, mother. I even had an uncle who was a Camp Lafayette counselor. But whether you step off the bus this summer for the first time or are steeped in family history here, Camp Jeanne d’Arc will live in your daughter’s heart forever. Women who went to CJd’A as girls, grow up believing in themselves. They grow up to be who they truly are meant to be! And of course, “There’s not a camp in all this world that’s dearer. There’s not a camp whose girls are half so true…”
