Arrival Day: All camp sessions begin on Sunday afternoons. Check-in runs from 3:00-4:30 pm. In order to expedite the check-in process, please be sure to submit all health forms, make payments, and deposit funds to the camper bank (FunFangle) prior to your arrival.
Departure Day: Parents begin arriving 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 is a small snack provided. Parents and campers depart by 11 AM.
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:
All of this information is outlined, in detail, in our Summer Camp Info Packet.
We do our best to accommodate campers with dietary restrictions. Our food service staff would be more than happy to speak with you about your camper’s needs, whether that’s alternative meals or storage space for food sent with the camper. To contact the food service staff, call the Berea office at (603) 744-6344 and ask to be transferred to the kitchen.
Please note that our kitchen and snack shops are nut-free (with the exception of coconut).
A licensed nurse is on site at all times during our Summer Camp sessions to dispense medications. In addition, our full-time staff have CPR, AED, and Wilderness First Aid certifications.
If your child is taking any medication (prescription, over-the-counter, or vitamin) 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. All medication (including over-the-counter) MUST come in its original container and have your child’s name on it. No medication is allowed to be kept by the camper or cabin leader in the cabin. Per state law, Berea cannot dispense medications to your camper that they have not already taken previous to camp. No meds in weekly pill containers will be accepted.
There are several ways to stay in touch with your camper while he/she is at camp:
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 for Junior/Senior High Week #1.
Camperships are granted based upon financial need. To apply for a campership, please complete this form and submit it to our office by June 1.
FunFangle is a cashless bank system that eliminates the need for campers to carry cash on them. Rather, campers can access their virtual funds at the Snack Shop, Berea Outfitters, activities, etc. simply by giving their name and scanning their uniquely programmed FunFangle wristband.
Some perks of this cashless bank system include:
All programmed activities are free of cost. However, some free-time activities have an additional cost, and the camp store (Berea Outfitters) is open for campers to buy Bibles/books and Berea merch all week. We recommend between $50 and $100 for spending money for the week.
If your camper has more than $5 left in their FunFangle account at the end of the week, it will automatically be refunded unless you have requested for it to be donated. If your camper has less than $5 left it will automatically be donated to the Berea Campership Fund unless you have specifically requested otherwise.
