Counselors help the campers sign up for specific activities when they are offered to their cabin.
How much money should I give to my camper for his/her session at camp?
This is a personal preference but campers are given the opportunity to visit the Canteen two times each day typically (afternoon and evening). Typically parents give campers between $20-$80 for their Canteen accounts.
