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:
Come visit your camper on July 25th and/or August 16. Check out the Visiting Day Schedule
Physical and Electronic 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 are encouraged to 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 are also welcome, but no more than one per week. These may be purchased at sites such as www.thewrinkledegg.com. The regular mail is slow so plan packages accordingly. If food is received in a package, it will be immediately discarded. We do this to keep unwanted critters out of the cabins. Suggestion: Mail a letter to your camper before she leaves so that it will be waiting for her at camp when she arrives!
Parents can send electronic mail via CampMinder. This process will allow you to send and receive correspondence with your camper within 24 to 48 hours. Details of how it works will be sent prior to camp via email, or you can contact Randy Abbott directly for further assistance (Randy’s cell is 704-960-3949).
