First-Year Family Orientations

pontoonAre you or your camper feeling a little nervous about your first summer at camp? Here’s your chance to alleviate some of your anxieties! Gather your family around your computer for an online orientation that will help prepare both you and your camper for your first Gold Arrow experience. We will cover topics such as homesickness, communication while at camp, preparing for camp, packing tips, and what to expect on the first day. This orientation is optional, but new families have found it helpful in past years, so we encourage you to join us if you can!

• Visit our “Camp Store” for some vendors we recommend for some of the items on your camper’s packing list.
