PARENT COMMUNICATION
Communicating with families is a very important part of the summer camp experience. We strive to provide families with all the information needed for your camper to have a successful summer. Here are a few ways to get information about your camper’s day:
• CAMP BROCHURE & PARENT HANDBOOK – These two printed items are full of useful information about the camp program, typical camp day, and camp policies. Everything you need to know is in them. They are also available on our website – www. campingersoll.org.
• ONLINE – Our website, www.campingersoll.org, contains useful information about YMCA Camp Ingersoll and your camper’s day. Also, be sure to check out our YouTube Channel and join YMCA Camp Ingersoll on Facebook and Twitter for daily pictures and important updates.
• EMAILS – We use emails to update families with important information prior to and during the camp season. Be sure to check for these valuable updates.
• COUNSELOR PHONE CALLS – This summer we are adjusting our policies on making parent phone calls to ensure that all families receive a phone call from their counselors introducing themselves and answering any general camp questions you may have. These calls will take place on the second day of every session after the busses are dismissed. Be sure to check your voicemail if you think you may have missed your call.
• SESSION CALENDAR – On the first day of every session we hand out a calendar that is full of useful information about the particular session. It includes themes for dress up days and reminders about Family Night. Be sure to check your camper’s backpack for it!
