Meet Sue, the Camp Director! Request a Home Visit or Ask a Question.
Camp Emerson is known for being very nurturing and having close relationships with parents and campers. We understand the trust you place in us when you send your child to our camp. Especially the first year, the idea of sending your child to an overnight camp can raise concerns. Who is in charge? Will they tell me what’s going on? What if my child is upset? Will the counselors really pay attention? Who’s there to take care of health issues? We understand how you feel. Here are some of the ways we work hard to make you feel confident with your decision to join us at Camp Emerson.
Meeting in Person
We want to meet you and your child and tell you all of you all about Camp Emerson face to face. This is how we can do our best job. Sue Lein, Camp Director, will come to your home or meet you during a camp visit. “I couldn’t imagine picking a camp from just a brochure or website. It’s so important to me to meet you. I want you to know who I am and who you are trusting your child to. Equally important is for me to get to know all of you and what you hope to get out of the camp experience”. – Sue
Getting To Know You Prior To Camp
Prior to camp, we will ask you about your child’s sleeping habits, eating habits, personality, friendships and other information important for us to know. These traits give us an in depth understanding your child’s individual needs. It is our personal attention to these details that makes the difference. Sue’s available to discuss anything at length to help ensure a successful summer for your child AND your piece of mind.
Keeping In Touch During Camp
We feel that access to the Camp Director is critical. This is the cornerstone of our parent communication. Call us any time day/night. Like-wise, we will call you if you need to know something about your child. That’s the way we’d want it ourselves. We also have many long-term administrators on staff who are set up to specifically answer parent questions.
- 2nd Day Update – On the 2nd day of camp we’ll call you to give you an update on your child. We’ll tell you about the activities he/she selected, what is going on in the bunk, how he/she slept, ate, etc. – everything you need to know to rest easier.
- Telephone Policy – We have a lenient phone policy so you can keep in touch with your child multiple times during the session (about every 5 days).
- Daily Web Photos – Every day photos are posted on the website for you to share in all the fun we are having at camp.
