Here are some quick tips and reassurances for our parents!
Letters and packages are not only welcomed but strongly encouraged! Make sure that packages and letters are in the mail no later than Wednesday. Any later and they may not arrive in time. You may also leave mail on Sunday to be distributed to your camper throughout the week.
If your camper would like to send mail, it's helpful to send him/her with letter supplies. We can provide stamps, if needed, and it will be applied to your account.

Once camper medication is turned in at registration, it is handled by the Head Counselors, and locked in the camp Infirmary. It is only accessed by a Head Counselor or a camp director.
It is perfectly normal for campers to experience homesickness. All of our camp leaders are well equipped to handle homesickness. If you receive a letter from your camper saying how homesick he/she is, please know that most likely by the time you get it, he/she is all good and has made wonderful friends. If you are concerned, please give us a call and we will be happy to do a quick check!
On Sundays, at 11am, there is an optional recital for the campers(campers can perform their recital piece from Saturday). It would be helpful if you talked to your camper before camp, or asked your camper to send a letter on Wednesday to tell you if he/she will be performing in this recital.
Thank you for entrusting us with your children. Their well being and their experience at Hummingbird are of utmost importance to us!
