New Camper Letter of Introduction

Someone you know has been accepted to be a participant in our world renowned summer program. Our programs are physically active and last for 4 to 8 weeks in duration. Campers live in groups, with as little as 4 or as many as 14, with college-age counselors. They take daily trips (one to five days) away from the camp to the adjacent National Park. Programs include western riding, hiking, backpacking (ages 12-17), camping (ages 9-11), technical climbing, and sports. Because of the high level of physical activity and living in a group situation away from home, we require all campers to be physically fit and emotionally well. We request your assistance in making sure this camper will be well-served in our program. Thank you in advance for your comments and for helping us to ensure a quality experience for each participant. (Your comments will be kept confidential.)
