Greetings from Camp Burgess & Hayward! We are so excited to welcome your child to Camp!

In preparation for your child’s arrival, we are supplying you with some useful information that will help ensure a smooth check-in and a successful camping experience:

Your Account: Please log in to your account, here, to review your statement and to make sure your balance is paid in full.

Camp Store Deposit: Please make sure your child’s camp store deposit is set up prior to check-in. The recommended deposit amount is $40/week. If you are unsure of whether or not you have already set up the store deposit, please review your statement (attached) for the correlating charge description. If you have not set up the store deposit, you may do so online via your account by clicking on: “View details” (under “View My Registrations”) > “Add people, sessions, options” > scroll down and select deposit amount > continue through to payment page.

Your child will have the opportunity to shop in the camp store during the session for items such as t-shirts, sweatshirts, water bottles, sunblock, towels, flashlights, etc. Please note: We do not issue refunds for funds remaining in your child’s camp store account at the end of the session – your child may either shop in the store upon check-out, or shop for remaining camp merchandise online via our website during the month of September.
