Camper Info

Before Camp

Acceptance and Participation
Rules for acceptance and partcipation in the program are the same for everyone regardless of religion, race, color, or national origin. Camp Susque does reserve the right to dismiss any camper who, by administration's judgment, consistently or grossly violates Camp Susque's regulations in a manner detrimental to the good or safety of any persons or property.

Waitlist Policy
If you want to apply for a session that is full, please submit an application form, but do not pay. Your child will be placed on a waiting list and notified when an opening becomes available. At that time you will send in your deposit.

Cancellation Policy
All deposits are non-refundable. Cancellations made 7 days prior to the registered camp date allows for a full refund of any monies paid, minus the non-refundable deposit. After that date, all monies paid are non-refundable.

Forms

A health form is required for each camper 2 weeks* before their arrival at Susque. A camper physical by a physician is not required to attend camp. However, we do recommend having your camper receive a physical within 6 months prior to their time at camp.

Additional forms may be required depending on the year and session your camper is enrolled. To access these forms, log in to your CampInTouch account.

*Blast campers are exempt from this policy. If you are a Blast camper, please bring your Blast Health Form with you upon arrival.

How Parents & Guardians Can Help Make the Camp Experience Successful

  • Speak positively about the camp experience in the months and weeks before your child's session. Avoid imparting a sense of guilt or sadness with statements such as "I'll be struggling at home without you, but I know you'll have fun." Affirm for them that you are excited for, and not dreading, their special time away.
  • There are many professional resources to assist you and your camper in preparing for camp. For starters, check out the American Camp Association's "Preparing for Camp" blog post.

Arrival & Departure Info
See our Arriving & Departing Camp page.

Health Care Information
Susque takes stringent measures to safeguard and protect your camper from accidents or injuries. However, should one occur, our Camp Nurse or a trained staff member will assess and care for your camper in our Infirmary. Advanced medical care is on-call at all times. Health information is confidential and is treated as such to protect the privacy of your camper and your family.

For more information, visit our Health & Safety page.

Food & Lodging

Please visit our Food & Lodging page. 

No Electronics Policy
This policy is enforced for Chill, Frost, and Freeze. It is intended to minimize distractions for all of our campers. If an unapproved electronic device is found with your camper, the device will be confiscated until the end of his or her camping session. Please help us minimize distractions for our campers by not sending electronic devices to camp.

Phone Calls & Visits

For legal and practical reasons, we do not permit campers to make or receive phone calls unless in an emergency. If needed, parental concerns can be communicated through our Program Director.

Likewise, we do not permit visits to your camper while they are at camp.

Personal Sporting Equipment

Campers can bring personal sporting equipment such as fishing gear, bows and arrows, and rifles. All target sport equipment will be safely locked by camp leadership until needed.

After Camp

Lost Items

We strongly recommend that you clearly label all of your camper's items with their full name.

We are unable to return clothing that is left at camp. Clothing that is left behind is washed and donated to Goodwill. 

In the rare event that we can locate a valuable item such as a camera, you must pay the shipping costs to have the item mailed back to you.

Common items left at camp:

Towels, sweatshirts, jackets, gloves, hats, boots, flashlights, cameras, books.
