Hello 2013 camper families! The air at camp is electric with excitement right now as we get ready for the summer camp experience of a lifetime for more than 450 youth this summer! A couple of family reminders as you get ready to bring your child for the first summer or the ninth to Camp Chanco!
Don’t forget to pack bathing suits, closed toe shoes for the ropes course, water shoes for swimming in the river, a water bottle, bug spray, and sunscreen. We highly recommend labeling all items with your name and phone number. For the complete list of suggested packing items, click here.
Drop off times are between 1-3 pm on the first day of your session (Sunday) and pick up is between 9 and 11 am on the last day of your session (Friday).
We have closed our Post Office Box and consolidated our mailing address to one address: 394 Floods Drive, Spring Grove, VA 23881. If by accident, you mail to the old post office box, we do have mail forwarding but please be aware that there will be a delay in receipt of the mail. Please use the physical address listed above for all camper correspondence. Campers love mail and care packages!
Don’t forget those Change for Chanco boxes! This is our fourth year of this youth fundraising program that has helped to make enormous positive changes to Camp Chanco! This year, youth are raising money for new high elements on the ropes course! AND, the campsite with the most money collected each session wins an ice cream party! 🙂 So, save that change and don’t forget to bring your Change for Chanco boxes with your name on them at the start of your session!
Remember, having all your forms and payment turned in ahead of your session start date means you get to go to the EXPRESS LINE on arrival to Chanco!
