Camp is a welcoming and loving place, but there’s still no better feeling for campers than receiving mail from home! When mail call rolls around, campers eagerly await letters and emails from their family and friends. It’s everyone’s favorite time of day!
Writing letters to your campers helps boost Positive Family Communication (Asset #2). It lets them know that they are in your thoughts, that you are interested in them, and that you want to share their camp experience with them. Check out this video for more information on letter writing and some tips from our Director, Adrienne Grubb, for getting a letter back from your camper.
And while a simple letter or email goes a long way in making your camper’s day just a little bit brighter, nothing beats the excitement that comes from receiving a care package!
You can order pre-made and custom care packages online at the camp store website, Lonehollow Outfitters . Care packages can include everything from t-shirts to toys to toiletries. If you order a care package from the Lonehollow Outfitter, we will put it together and deliver it to your camper’s cabin with a handwritten note. If you would like to send your camper a care package from home, please remember to use a padded envelope. Boxes will not be accepted unless it is for a camper’s birthday.
You can also order other items online for yourself and we will mail them to you! Show up on Closing Day wearing the latest Lonehollow gear or support your camper’s crew our new Columbia PFG’s!
