Before camp, you will receive luggage tags from LLYC in the mail. These are for labeling large items like trunks, suitcases, duffels, and fans with your camper’s name and gender. When you arrive at camp, staff members will greet you at your car and help you place these items in the correct location for transportation to your camper’s cabin. If you have been to camp before, please remove old luggage tags before adding this year’s tag to ensure we deliver your luggage to the correct location.
Check out our packing list for more info about trunk sizes and what to bring in your luggage!
All cabin assignments are made based on grade. We do our very best to honor reciprocal roommate requests for campers in the same grade. One request is allowed per camper. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee your request, but we will sure try. Bunks are randomly pre-assigned by counselors prior to your camper’s arrival (there is no need to arrive early to get a bunk for your camper). If your camper has a special need that requires a certain bunk, please contact us so we can make arrangements prior to your arrival.
If your camper will be taking medication at camp, please bring your camper medication card to Opening Day. Before camp, you will be sent a form to complete and bring with you.
We do not allow medication, including over-the-counter medicine, to be stored in camper cabins. We require medications to be checked in with our camp nurse on Opening Day. Our on-site camp nurse and healthcare assistants keep a comprehensive stock of over-the-counter medication in our clinics which allows us the ability to treat a wide range of minor illnesses, aches, etc. as they may occur. Please do not send these to camp.
Medications will not be dispensed unless the following guidelines are met:
- Prescription medications MUST be in the original pharmacy labeled container or the original manufacturer’s container.
- Prescription medications MUST have the camper’s name on the bottle.
- Any doctor’s office samples MUST be accompanied by a signed physician prescription.
- Medication should be limited to only what is required for your camper’s session.
We screen all incoming campers for head lice when they arrive, even if they’ve recently been screened elsewhere. Lice are more common than you may think, and they affect everyone. A specialty lice treatment company handles lice screening and treatment for LLYC. If lice or nits are found, this company will treat campers on-site for $250. Treatment is fully guaranteed. Should you choose not to have your child treated on-site, we will require you to remove your child from camp to receive treatment. Your camper can then return to camp the following day, be rechecked and admitted to camp. We are sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause you or your family, but we trust you understand the seriousness of this issue and its effect on the LLYC community.
Closing Days happen on Saturday. Check-out begins at 8:00 a.m. and should conclude by 11:00 a.m. on each Closing Day. Please plan on arriving between 8 and 10 a.m. After you find your camper(s) and load up their luggage, you will have a chance to hang out for a bit, grab some brunch from our Ranch House, visit with counselors and leadership staff, check out the session video, and shop at our camp store if desired. Also, make sure to grab your Camper Highlights Card from their counselors. When you’re ready (we know it’s hard!), give lots of hugs to your camp friends, and say “see you soon!”
As a new feature, we will have a brief, optional Closing Day message from one of our directors for parents, staff, and families to attend on Closing Day. This will happen at 9:00 a.m. for Singing Hills and 10:00 a.m. for Echo Valley. It will be a quick opportunity to hear a few session highlights, and our hopes for campers as they are headed home.
For liability and safety reasons, please do not bring your pets to camp on Closing day.
