Tips and Gratuities Policy

As the camp season comes to a close, we want to take a moment to remind you of our time-honored tradition of gift-giving. Your child’s positive camp experience might inspire you to express gratitude, and we fully support and promote appropriate expressions of thanks.

Gift-giving at the end of the camp season is a beautiful way to celebrate the connections made and the memories shared. We only ask that all gifts adhere to the values of our camp community.


Consideration should be given to all members  of your child’s camp group, not just individual Staff Members. Please also consider gifts for the various Activity Staff.

Suggested Gifts

Gifts should be reflective of your child’s overall camp experience. Cash gift suggestions appear below:

  • Group Leader – $60
  • Group Counselor – $40 
  • Junior Counselor – $20
  • Activity Counselors – $10
