You can have a more enriching summer by becoming a host family for one week. You have the opportunity to host the young man, the young woman, or both for one week. The counselor will become a special part of your family, enjoying meals, activities, relaxation and playtime together. There are no dietary restrictions. The counselor will not have a car and will need a ride to camp daily as well as a packed lunch that he/she can prepare to take to camp.

We have divided the needed dates into one (I) week sessions (the first being a bit longer because they have just arrived) and are looking for families to open their homes. You do not need to have children in summer camp to become a host. Available dates are: June 17th-27th, June 27th -July 4th  July 4th -11th, July 11th- 18th,  July 18th- 25th, July 25th-August 1st, August 1st- August 11th.
