The Parent Page
This page includes some information we think may be helpful to parents who are sending their kids to summer camp. For your convenience, there is a link to the registration form (to be printed and faxed or mailed in) as well as on the Junior, Teen, and Horsemanship Camp pages.
ARRIVAL & DEPARTURE TIMES
Arrivals are welcome starting at 3:00 p.m. Monday afternoon. Camp officially begins with Monday dinner at 6:00 p.m. We recommend that campers get here early enough to get settled and get to know their cabin-mates and counselor before heading to dinner. Camp ends with breakfast at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday morning (with the exception of Horsemanship Camp which ends after the 9:00 Shodeo). Please plan to pick up your campers between 9:00 and 10:00 a.m. on Saturday.
Please call our office if other arrangements need to be made.
Late Arrivals: If your arrival with be delayed past 5:30 p.m., please phone our office at 530.273.8709 to hold your reservation and give an estimated arrival time.
Activities offered during a week of camp will include field games, arena antics, high ropes, team-building, crafts, archery, paintball, swimming, pond zipline, and many more - AT NO EXTRA COST TO THE CAMPER!
We recommend campers bring spending money for our snack and souvenir store, The Bonanza Trading Co., and for Stompin' Grounds Coffeehouse, our coffee and smoothie shop. In Trailhead, our combined souvenir and snack store is The Trading Post.

You may also email a camper (include the camper's first and last name in the subject line as well as which camp they are attending - i.e., John Doe | Teen Camp) at email@example.com. Please do not email attachments or pictures. The email will be printed and distributed during mail call. Please note that campers are unable to respond to emails they receive.
Because of the limited number of phones, campers are not permitted to make calls. Parents are asked not to call their children during camp except in an emergency. Cell phone use is not permitted.
Camp is an exciting place with lots of fun activities! Because of the schedule of camp, we stay active and fairly busy most of the day. Guys and girls can plan to wear knee-length shorts with loose-fitting, modest shirts throughout the day. Of course, pants and jeans are fine as well. Please avoid tank tops, except for use at the pool.
We try to create a different atmosphere in our evening services, so we encourage but do not require guys to wear collared shirts and long pants. Girls are encouraged but not required to wear skirts and dresses. All clothing should come at least to the knee.
At the Pool
Girls: Colored shorts and a tank top or t-shirt should be worn over swimsuits. If shorts do not come to the knee, a towel or cover-up should be worn while going to and from the pool. Guys: Exposed undergarments are not permitted. Swimsuits should be modest, trunk-type suits.
We require all clothing to be modest and appropriate. Wolf Mountain reserves the right to ask any camper to change his/her outfit if, in the estimation of the staff, the outfit does not comply with these standards. Please call our office if you have any questions.
All meals are included in the price of the camping program. Those on special diets must bring their own necessary supplements. A refrigerator, microwave, and toaster are available to store and prepare special diet foods. Food from a meal served at The Mill may be set aside for a future meal.
WHAT TO BRING
Please bring a sleeping bag, pillow, towels, toiletries, flashlight, Bible, note pad, pen or pencil, and spending money for snacks and souvenirs. If you have not sent in your signed and completed medical form and waiver, please bring it with you. You may also want to bring sunscreen, sunglasses, lip balm, a hat, flip-flops to wear to and from the pool, and a camera.
