Camp FAQs:
Two-week Sessions
How many weeks of camp can I come in a summer?  Do I have to go home on the weekends?
You can come for one, two or three weeks of camp per summer in any combination of one and two-week sessions.  Here are the different combinations you can consider:
  • A one-week session
  • Two one-week sessions
  • Three one-week sessions
  • A two-week session
  • A two-week and a one-week session
Please note that a camper can only stay for a maximum of two weeks (12 nights) straight through.  There are no weekend programs offered for campers attending a one-week session.
How old do I have to be to attend a two-week session?
Campers are eligible to attend a two-week session once they have completed the 5th grade (a rising 6th grader) - this typically is when they are at least 11 years old. Campers are no longer eligible to be a 'camper' once they have completed 11th grade or turned 17 years old.
What is the difference between a two-week session and two one-week sessions?
Campers in a two-week session attend camp for 12 consecutive days.  They will have the same cabinmates and counselors for their entire time at camp.  Two-week campers participate in special weekend day trips and activities but do not go home on the weekend between their weeks of camp.  Campers coming for two one-week sessions will have different cabinmates and counselors each week, and they go home on the weekend.  They can also attend one-week sessions that are separated in time by more than a weekend - for instance, weeks 2 and 7.

Is the daily schedule different for two-week and one-week campers?
Yes and no.  The types of activities offered are the same, but the times at which they are offered are somewhat different.  Click here to view a detailed daily schedule for each type of camp.
Will pick-up and drop-off times be the same for one-week and two-week campers?
No, registration for one-week campers is on Sundays between 4:00 and 5:30 PM. Two-week campers arrive on Sundays between 4:30 and 5:30 PM. Parents with campers in both one-week and two-week sessions can arrive between 4:00 and 5:30 PM.

On Fridays, there is a closing ceremony at 4:00 pm that parents and guardians are encouraged to attend.  Campers are ready to go home at approximately 4:45 pm.  Please remember though, that two-week campers are on an out-of-camp trip on the Friday afternoon at the end of their first week and the Sunday of their second week.
How will campers staying for a two-week session do their laundry?
Sandy Hill contracts with an outside laundry company to do the campers' laundry for them one time during their stay at camp midway through the session.  Campers will only be able to have clothes and towels laundered, not bedding.  The cost for the optional laundry service (approximately $20) will be deducted from their store account.
Is the housing for two-week campers different than one-week campers?
Yes. Two-week campers live in lodges (click here for photos and details). One-week campers stay in cabins.
