If you leave a message in the voice mailbox, we will return your call. Please see the "helping your child adjust to camp" section. One of the strategies to prevent homesickness is that campers not speak to their parents over the phone during the week. If you need to contact your child please leave a message and we can work out arrangements based on the situation. If for some reason you are having difficulty getting through to camp, contact the Snider Mountain Office at 506-432-6362. We will be checking in with the office daily.

These letters/emails are given to the children either at breakfast or lunch time the following day. Please put your child's name on the letter or email and we sincerly ask that the letters not contain anything that would upset the child from being away from home. Especially for any children who are new to camp. Also, PLEASE do not send any food or any of the items on the Not to Bring to Camp list.
