YOU HAVE QUESTIONS, WE’VE GOT ANSWERS!

When do camp sessions begin?

All camp sessions begin on Sunday afternoons. Check-in runs from 2:00-3:30 pm.

In order to expedite the check-in process, please be sure to submit all health forms, payments, etc. prior to your arrival.

What sort of medical paperwork does my student need for camp session?

For our summer programs, there are several pieces of health information that we must have by mandate of the State of New Hampshire. These include:

  • Completed online health form (completed through Berea’s website/registration platform)
  • Copy of a Doctor’s Physical, dated within the last 24 months
  • Up-to-date immunization record
  • Copy of the front and back of their health insurance card
    • In the case that a camper is not covered by health insurance, they must sign Berea’s Release of Liability document indicating that they will be responsible for any health costs that may be incurred as a result of their camper’s time at camp.

All of this information is outlined, in detail, in our Camper/Parent Info Packet.

My child has food allergies. Can your food service staff accommodate them?

We do our best to accommodate campers with dietary restrictions. Our Food Service Manager, Greg Farrell, would be more than happy to speak with you about your camper’s needs. We also make space available in our refrigerators and freezers to store any food provided by the families.

Our kitchen and snack shop are peanut-free.

For more information, please see our Food Allergy Policy.

My child is on prescription medication(s). Will someone be available to dispense my child's medications?

A licensed nurse is on-site at all times during our summer camp sessions. In addition, all of our full-time staff are trained in Wilderness First Aid, CPR, and AED.

If your child is taking any medication at the time camp begins, please have it ready to turn in at the health center check-in station along with clearly written instructions for the nurse. This includes any over-the-counter medications along with any vitamins.

What does a typical day of camp look like?

How can I communicate with my camper while they're at Berea?

You can send your camper(s) letters, packages, etc. during their week of camp. The packages should be addressed like so:

Camper Name

Cabin

Berea

68 Berea Road

Hebron, NH 03241

All mail is distributed daily around noon.

 

We also collect packages, letters, etc. on check-in day and will distribute them throughout the week as instructed.

 

If you’re looking to send a quick note, you can message your camper through our website. All messages are printed in the morning and distributed around noon with all other mail.

Are there scholarships available?

While we aim to keep the cost of camp as affordable as possible, we understand that, for some families, the cost of camp might prove to be too great of a financial burden. For this reason, we have a limited amount of campership funds available for our Discovery Camp and Junior/Senior Week #1 programs.

Camperships are granted based upon financial need. To apply for a campership, please complete this form and submit it to our office by June 15.

When do camp sessions end?

Parents begin arriving at around 9:30 AM on Saturday for the photo slideshow in the gym and meet up with their campers at 10:00 AM for the closing rally which lasts about 30 minutes. After that, there will be a small snack provided. Parents and campers depart shortly after that.
