Senior Camp – 4 Weeks:

Gives one not only the opportunity to experience the joys of camping but a chance to grow mentally, physically and socially while participating in the activities of one’s choice.

Full Season – 7 Weeks:

Offers each camper a summer of fun and an opportunity to enjoy camp life to its fullest.

General Information and Policies

The Standards of Dixie have always been very high. The director reserves the right to request parents to withdraw their children from camp if they do not measure up to the camp standards or if their presence in camp is considered inimical to the welfare of their associates. This policy is frankly and clearly stated so that all may understand it before seeking admission to Dixie. In this way discriminating parents may not feel any hesitance in enrolling their children. Before campers are enrolled, they are carefully screened to assure a wholesome and harmonious camping experience for all.

The Dixie Camps have many policies in effect which come from years of experience in working with boys and girls. They are planned so that each camper may derive the maximum from his or her camping experience. Our standards are high and we will continue to keep them that way so that parents are assured of the best care and individual attention for their children. We therefore ask all parents of Dixie campers to abide by the rules and policies. In this way no camper will feel that he or she is being denied privileges or granted privileges.

Counselor In Training

Those campers who have completed their sophomore year in high school may qualify to take part in our Counselor in Training Program. This program is designed to give the young people chosen valuable leadership training and experience. Full details will be sent upon request.

Extra Spending Money

Campers should not have extra money in their possession during camp. All money should be deposited in the camp office. The staff determines how much spending money is needed for special trips and will issue these “spending money” amounts when necessary. If you desire your child to have extra money on hand, please send it to the Director and not to the child or you may deposit money into their account at registration.

Laundry

Campers need to bring a little more than a week’s amount of clothing. Laundry is done for those who are enrolled for two weeks or more.

Packages

All packages containing food will be shared with the entire cabin or camp. Please do not send chewing gum.

Telephone calls

Campers are not allowed to make or receive telephone calls. In case of an emergency the camp office will notify parents. If a problem arises, parents may call the camp director. For communications, birthdays and other special occasions, please use letters or cards.

Transportation

Parents who choose to have their child arrive by plane pay a transportation fee. Children are required to be at camp a day early and are billed for that day.

Visiting Camp

Only full-season and senior campers may have visitors during the designated visiting period. The visiting period is after the first two weeks. All visits must be worked out with Camp Director at least one week prior to visit. A written statement may be required by Camp Dixie if visitors are other than child’s parent or guardian.
