We want you to know that the investment made in sending a child to Camp Harmony can make a life-changing impact! Our campers are very important to us and we take time to provide mentors, create friendships and build communities each week. The information below is meant to guide you in preparing both you and your camper for the best camp experience possible. Green text below will open a document in a new window.
This handbook highlights the following topics:
Preparing for Camp - What to bring and what NOT to bring
Arrival & Departure Procedures
Camper Adjustment - Pack together, mail/email/homesickness
Typical Daily Schedules
Heath Care Information
Parent Follow-up After Camp
Each summer, Camp Harmony collects donations from campers for a missions offering during camp. In 2019, our offering will be collected for Samaritan's Purse Operation Christmas Child (we are a shoebox drop-off location). These shoeboxes are given to children around the world to give them physical gifts as well as tell them the Good News of Jesus Christ. More information about Operation Christmas Child can be found here.
Mail & Email
It's always fun getting mail when you are at camp! When you write to your camper, encourage them to have fun, make new friends, and be open to what God is teaching them. Be positive! Don't worry if you don't hear from your camper while they are here. They are likely busy with fun camp activities. No news is good news! You can write to your campers in three ways:
1. Letters - Please be sure to include your camper's name on the envelope:
c/o Camp Harmony
1414 Plank Road
PO Box 158
Hooversville, PA 15936
2. One-way Email - We have joined with Bunk1 to offer one-way camper email. Parents and family will be able to send email to campers through their website as well as view our weekly photo gallery and videos. Details are available at registration when campers are dropped off.
3. You may drop off letters and packages for your camper at registration. Please let us know what day you would like them delivered.
