STAYING CONNECTED

While we believe space and freedom are important for the overall camp experience, we also desire for parents to feel connected with their children during camp. And obviously campers love to hear from parents to know that they are loved and missed. Here are some ways you can stay connected while your camper is with us:

SEND LETTERS AND CARE PACKAGES FROM HOME

We strongly encourage you to send letters and care packages to your camper at our camp address. Wondering what to send? Check out this great post on The Makings of a Great Care Package. In case you’re wondering, unfortunately we are not able to accept letters or care packages on Opening Day to be stored and delivered at a later date.

USE YOUR ONLINE ACCOUNT TO VIEW PHOTOS, SEND EMAILS, AND SEND CARE PACKAGES

To access all these features, log into your account and visit your camper’s itinerary. We upload photos daily so you can take a peek at what’s happening during your camper’s session. You can also email your camper a sweet message that we will print and deliver like regular mail, but faster! You can even include a reply page for your camper that we will scan and return to you. Additionally, we offer the ability to purchase and send your camper a care package from our camp store, the Sugar Shack. We offer lots of fun goodies ranging from apparel to granola bars.

POLICY ON PHONE CALLS & VISITS:

We do not encourage phone calls to your camper or allow visits. We have found that this disrupts the camp and camper experience. Please contact your camper as directed above through letters, care packages and emails through your account.

CAMP STORE

ECHO VALLEY

Echo Valley offers an on-site general store, the Sugar Shack, where campers are given the opportunity to purchase candy, snacks, clothing, and other merchandise. Spending money is not included in the registration fee, but parents or family can add money for their campers by visiting My Account. On average, campers spend $2-$4 per day on snacks and drinks. Campers are discouraged from bringing cash to camp for camp store purchases.

SINGING HILLS

Unlike Echo Valley, Singing Hills campers receive snacks and drinks from the Cantina in monitored, modest amounts as part of the daily camp program. The cost for these snacks and drinks is included in the registration fee at Singing Hills. Note: The Singing Hills Cantina also offers clothing and other merchandise on Opening and Closing Days for parents.

Or check out our online store where you can buy LLYC gear year round!

LOST & FOUND

LLYC is not responsible for missing items; however, items found at the close of each camp session are brought to the Kerrville office. If identifiable, items will be mailed postage paid to the home address on file via U.S. First-Class Mail. We ask that parents reimburse postage for return of Lost and Found items. Unclaimed items will be donated to a local charity after two weeks.

CLOSING DAY

Check-out begins at 8:00 a.m. and should conclude by 11:00 a.m. on each closing Saturday. Families are invited to join us for brunch. You will have the opportunity to talk with your child’s counselors, visit our camp store, and check out our session video.

For liability and safety reasons, please do not bring your pets to camp on Closing days.
