Great care and consideration is taken when assigning groups of cabin mates. This is why the bunk requests forms are due March 1. We want plenty of time to review the requests and create successful groups. Any bunk requests made one week prior to the start of your camper’s session will not be accommodated. Cabins are assigned based on grades. We work hard to honor all requests and assign based on mutual request. In addition, we assign groups of campers from small towns and big towns so that each cabin has a nice mix of campers from different cities and schools. All cabin placements are revealed upon arrival and are considered final.
Please note – Cabin assignments will not be made until all of your camper’s forms have been returned to the Lonehollow office. Be sure to login to your Lonehollow account and click on Forms and Documents to ensure that all forms have been received.
Specific bed placements are determined upon arrival either by a lottery-style drawing or by Guide assignment. Should you need to request a bottom bunk to accommodate sleep or medical issues for your camper, please note it on your bunk requests form.
On Closing Day, you will have the opportunity to pre-register for the next summer. We highly encourage this registration, not just for the cool t-shirt you will receive, but also because we have seen tremendous growth at Lonehollow, and we don’t want our returning families to miss out! Not to mention ... there is a 5% discount if you pre-register that day!
Our pre-registration process is outlined below.
• Returning two and four week campers will be guaranteed a spot in their CURRENT term ONLY if you register on CLOSING DAY. If you have not registered by this date, your spot can no longer be guaranteed in your term.
• Returning two and four week campers can pre-register for a term which is different from their current term. However, you will not be notified if your request has been accepted until after October 15 when we release returning camper spots. You will not lose your spot in your CURRENT term.
• Returning two and four week campers who register after closing day will be guaranteed a spot at Lonehollow until October 15; however, the term that the spot will be offered will depend on availability at the time of application.
• Siblings of returning two-and four-week campers and current Short Term campers can register prior to October 15. However, sibling and former Short Termer reservations will not be confirmed until October 15 when we release returning camper spots.
In a perfect world, all items that were packed for camp would return home ... and to the right home. We have a lost and found table located on the front porch of Headquarters. Any items that do not have names or were found after campers are gone will be located on the lost and found table. Please check it before you leave and take what is yours. Then if you get home and find only one Chaco, extra room in your duffel from the missing helmet, no toiletry bag, or even that Dad (or Mom, of course!) didn’t pick up the laundry bag (believe us, it happens!), please call within two days of camp closing as all of the unclaimed items will be donated. We will ship these items back to you via United States Postal Service and add the charge to your camper’s camp store account. Large items such as backpacks, sleeping bags, laundry bags, or duffels left behind will automatically be mailed and charged to your camp store account.
