How We Work With Parents

Summer at camp is an adventure and a growth opportunity for campers. And we know it’s a big deal for parents as well. So, we work closely with families to assure that everyone is comfortable, both before and during the season at camp.

We are in Maine year round supported by responsive office staff. During the summer, a full health and wellness program and conscientious counselors and instructors form a team of professional adults working to assure a successful experience for all.

I can't even express how grateful we were for the amazing support that Meg gave our daughter. - HVC Parent.

This Winter and Spring

As you know it was a rather huge milestone for me to send my kids to summer sleep away camp. Peter, I so appreciated the time you gave me as I was mulling over the decision, had numerous questions regarding everything from safety to food. Your nature spoke volumes and I was so at peace with my decision that Hidden Valley would be the perfect place for my children. - HVC Parent

Prior to the summer we are continually in touch with you via email and snail mail. Questions about summer prep logistics are answered right here as well. And preparing for camp helps first time campers and their parents recognize those personal resources that support a successful adjustment to camp.

If you have any health or diet concerns, we can put you in touch with camp's RN's and Food Service staff. Our Health Service has handled most pediatric conditions, administered a range of medications and can work with your physicians as needed. Camp's cooks have joined us for almost 30 years, attending to children with allergies to nuts, gluten and more, and creating a delicious menu for all of us! 

During the Summer

Have a Question? Parents can contact us anytime. We are fortunate to have a tremendously helpful office staff who can answer many questions and help you reach us if we are busy with camper activities away from the office.

Communication with counselors during the camp session is supported as well. New families will hear from counselors prior to camper arrival. And all families will hear from staff during the first week of camp and mid-session as well.

For many first-time families, the weeks at camp represent a big step for everybody. Meg and Peter have helped families with this transition since 1988. We look forward to sharing in the excitement as your child readies him- or herself for this wonderful adventure.

We are impressed by your open-mindedness, professionalism and diligent follow through. - HVC Parent
