Camp Lawrence 101
Hey Campers! We made this page just for you! Here you will find answers to any and all questions you may have about Camp Lawrence before we see you this summer! Scroll down to see our activities, common questions, and lots of photos!
Q: How old do I need to be to go to Camp?
A: You can start coming to camp when you are at least seven years old and can keep coming up to and including the year you turn fourteen. After you turn fourteen you can think about applying to come back to camp as a CIT which means Counselor In Training.
Q: How many times can I go to Camp each Summer?
A: We know that you will have so much fun that you will want to come back for the whole summer. You can attend all five weeks of camp if your parents will let you.
Q: What group will I be in?
A: The boys and girls are both divided into eight groups. Which group you are in depends on your age. The other campers in your group will be the same age as you are. The youngest campers go in group number one and the oldest in group number eight. You go to all of your activities with the boys and girls who are in the same group number as you are.
Q: What should I bring with me to Camp?
Sleeping bag or blankets
Things to Pack
The most important thing to bring is yourself all ready to have fun, make friends at Camp! But, there are some other things you need as well:
Comb or brush
Blue jeans and Long sleeve shirts for hikes
Shorts and Shirts*
One-piece bathing suits
Gym shoes and a second pair of shoes
Shower Shoes or Sandals
*Please note that all clothing must be modest (no half shirts) and appropriate (pictures, sayings, etc.).
You don't want to bring things that can break easily or that are expensive. If you bring a camera, it is best to bring the disposable kind. And we really suggest you leave any electronic games at home. We plan on keeping too busy to play with them anyways.
*If you have any special medicine you take, your mom or dad will give these to the Camp Nurse who will make sure that you get them at the right time.
Q: Can my friend and I be in the same group?
A: If you and your friend are the same age there is a very good chance you will be in the same group. To help make sure, have your parents put your request on both you and your friend's registration forms for Camp.
Q:Where do we sleep at Camp?
A: You sleep in our cabins with the other boys or girls in your group. Each camper has his or her own locker to put stuff in and sleeps on either the top or bottom of a bunk bed. If you need to be on the bottom of the bunk bed or want to be on the top, be sure to let your counselor know when you arrive at camp.
Sometimes lucky groups get to spend a night outside around a campfire and in tents. Maybe your group will be one of them!
Q: What do we eat at Camp?
A: Our Camp cooks get up early in the morning and start preparing delicious meals for us. For breakfast we always have cereal and juice but along with that they fix us pancakes, muffins, cinnamon rolls and other great stuff. At lunch and dinner, we have everything from corn dogs and hamburgers to chicken nuggets and pizza! Wednesday dinner is always a hot dog cookout down on the waterfront. And don't forget your MILK!
Q: What are the themes of the weeks?
A: Each week of camp has a special theme. Activities are then planned for that theme. Some of our favorite themes are:
