What will my child be doing at camp?2020-07-28T23:02:53-07:00

Our camp day begins with flag raising, breakfast, and our individual morning devotions (known as Morning Watch). The middle of the day includes three activity periods (activities your camper has chosen at the beginning of the week), a cabin Bible study time (Bible Exploration or Bible Ex), cabin clean up (capers), kickback time (rest period after lunch) and free time (during which your child can choose from a variety of active or restful choices such as swimming, crafts, boating or a visit to the camp store). After dinner the day concludes with an evening large group activity, a campfire program, and devotions before lights out.

Can I phone my child or have my child phone me?2020-07-28T23:12:02-07:00

As we live in a culture that is permeated with communication, we seldom have the time to fully listen to the companions we are with, to spend quiet time alone in thought, and to listen to the still, soft voice of God. At Cedarbrook, giving up our technology (including phone calls) for one week is our way to create a special space where listening, quiet time, and spiritual sensitivity are excitingly possible.

If you have concerns and want to check on how your child is doing, you may contact our registrar during the camp week.   She can provide you with an update on your child or if needed have your child’s counselor or division director contact you with an update.

We also update our Facebook page regularly with daily camp information and photos.   Our registrar also strives to send an evening email updating parents on the events of the day as well as praise and prayer items.

We encourage parents and friends to use our camper email system, either through UltraCamp or Bunk1 to send frequent notes to your child at camp.

Can my child with special medical, developmental or dietary needs attend camp2020-07-28T23:14:28-07:00

As each child is unique, our registrar/healthcare manager and director would be happy to work with you to find out how we can best serve your camper.

We have a nurse continuously on site that administers all camper medications according to physician instructions and our kitchen can often accommodate some dietary restrictions, including gluten free, dairy free and vegetarian.

Important considerations are:

  • how the camp schedule is different than the schedule your child is accustomed to;
  • if the camp menu includes the foods your child needs with alternatives to foods your child may be allergic to;
  • if your child can reliably respond to verbal commands in safety situations;
  • in some situations, if a parent or familiar caregiver can accompany your child at camp.
