Parents are cordially invited to visit camp on the weekend of July 14-16. The gates will open to parents on Friday evening, July 15, at 6:00pm. You will have about an hour to visit with your daughter and meet her cabin mates and counselors. At 8:00pm we will have our annual song and dance show in the theater. After the show, coffee, refreshments, and dessert will be served in the lodge. We will ask that everyone say goodnight at 9:30 pm.
Parents may arrive on Saturday, July 15 at 9:30am. We will run normal morning activities and you can watch your daughter “in action.” Lunch will be served at 11:30 am, buffet style, and seating will be on an informal basis. Prior to lunch parents are welcome to participate in some activities with their daughter – sailing, skiing, swimming, tennis, etc. Parents who would like to take their daughter out of camp may do so after lunch (we do ask that you stay for lunch…thanks).
All campers must spend the evening with their parents or other guardians on Saturday night. No Chippewa staff will be on duty. The first session campers will be heading home on Saturday, and the second session campers will arrive on Sunday, July 16. Those parents picking up or bringing their daughters to camp are naturally welcome to participate in the full parent’s weekend.
On Sunday, we ask that the drop-off timing is as follows:
10:00-10:30- 2nd session camper drop-offs
10:45-11:30- 8-Week camper drop-offs
*Parents will be asked to help us with a swift drop-off. We will ask that they remain by their vehicles to say their goodbyes. This will ease the transition for everyone.
A Few Notes:
We are very excited about this weekend, and hope that you find Chippewa a fun and relaxing alternative from the city place!
