FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is your chaperone policy at camp?
Girls will be accompanied by at least one adult facilitator and at least one volunteer per group of 10 girls at all times. All our facilitators and volunteers are fingerprinted and have taken the safe environment training in accordance with the Diocese of Orange.

Girls will be staying in our Camping Cabins and Dorms which are equipped with bunk beds. We ask that each camper brings a sheet, sleeping bag, and a pillow as we do not provide bedding. *Sisters may be able to sleep in the same cabin upon request. To learn more about our camp facilities please see our Amenities page!

Yes. All meals are provided from lunch on Monday June 26th to lunch on Saturday July 1st. If your daughter has any allergies, please let us know in advance so that we can accommodate her needs.

Yes. Upon registration, we will send you our packing list, medical history form, medical release form, and release of liability form.
