The camp phone is for camp business only. Calls to or from campers are not permitted except for emergencies and must be pre-approved by the Camp Director.
Parents are encouraged to write to their sons while they are at camp. On the lower left corner of the envelope, please write the program your son is in, his cabin number (if known), and the dates he is at camp (i.e., Stockade Cabin 5, July 2-9). Address your envelope as follows:
Your Son’s Name
C/O Northern Frontier Camp
PO Box 295
North River, NY 12856
Your son may receive one e-mail per day. No pictures or attachments are permitted. We will print and deliver only the first page of any e-mail (including headers). Please remember that, by its nature, e-mail at camp is not confidential.
The camp’s website is the easiest way to email your camper or staff member. Go to www.northernfrontier.org/email-form. It’s that simple. Your son will not have the opportunity to send e-mails from camp.
What to Write
When you write or e-mail your son, ask him what he is doing and tell him what you are doing. Refrain from statements like, “I miss you so much,” “I can’t wait for you to come home,” or “The dog sure misses you.” As well-meant as these statements are, they can cause a camper prone to homesickness to feel symptoms.
There are no times when campers can be visited during camper sessions. Call the office to schedule a suitable time to visit the camp for other purposes.
