Communication with families

 

Camp Overbrook considers it essential that all our campers keep in regular contact with their families. Therefore, we have designed the following system to keep them in touch with you.

Phone calls                                  

  • We will have a weekly phone call. Once your daughter is placed in her section, an email will be sent to you notifying you of her section number and the cell phone number that you will be calling.
  • You are also able to call your daughter on the following dates: her birthday and her father’s and mother’s birthdays.

Mail

  • Mail and packages will be distributed daily. We request that you refrain from sending items that have the potential to distract your daughter or other campers. Letters are very special to them.

Internet

  • Your daughter will have access to internet twice a week. Either to send and receive emails or communicate through social media (Facebook, Facetime, Whats app, Skype, etc.). She may bring an electronic device for this with the apps that you have approved. She will not be able to download any apps during the camp.  However, this device should not be considered to be her camera.  If she would like to bring a camera she may.

Web Site and Facebook

  • Check our web site on a regular basis for updates on the activities of the Camp.

Laundry and Clothing
