Can I write or call my camper during camp?

 We encourage that you bring mail on the day of registration for Arctic Blast. We will do a mail call on Saturday.  

We discourage calls as it may cause home sickness, but you are welcome to contact the office 218-829-6767 and we will connect you with your child.

Can my child attend special events during camp if I come and pick them up.  Things like sports, medical appointments, etc?

Yes, Just talk to the registration staff and they can provide you with the form you need so that your child can be picked up and dropped off at prearranged times.  

What do I do if I find my camper lost something?

Contact the office via phone 218-829-6767 or email with name, contact, item description and where camper thinks he/she may have lost it.  We will contact you back and if found return it to you at your expense.  

All lost and found items are disposed of after 30 days.

Policies and What Not To Bring

  • All campers must attend all required activities like meal time and chapels.
  • Cell phones are not allowed at camp.  If one is found it will be turned into the office for safe keeping and returned at end of the weekend.  It is our desire that campers are able to “unplug” during the week allowing them to fully experience camp and all it has to offer.  Not having cell phones removes distractions, increases safety and prevents inappropriate pictures from being posted.  If your camper needs to call home they can ask their counselor and arrangements can be made.
  • NO drugs, alcohol, magazines, pornography, e-cigarette devices, fireworks, smoke bombs, duct tape, weapons of any kind, knives, music, i pods, mp3, mp4 or related items are allowed.
  • Do not bring clothing with vulgar writing, nudity. We will ask you to change if you show up with the above listed.
  • Bullying and fighting is absolutely forbidden and campers will be sent home if it persists at the parents expense, no refund will be provided.
  • Sexual harassment is forbidden including but not limited to “unwanted physical touch, cat calling, name calling”.  Campers will be sent home at parent/guardians expense, no refund will be provided.
