Q: What if my child takes daily medication?

Q: How do you handle a homesick camper?
A: We understand that this is the first time away from home for many campers. We take care in helping kids connect and make friends as soon as possible. If a camper is homesick, our counselors are happy to talk with them to understand their concerns. If there is not a need to immediately involve the parents, we will usually encourage them to reengage in the day’s activities to reduce their anxiety. If they are still feeling anxious, our Camp Director will connect with their parents to appraise them of the situation and, at the parents’ preference, arrange a time for parents and camper to talk. We want what is best for the camper and will honor how the parents wish to proceed.
Q: What forms need to be completed for along with registration?
A: There are several forms. Every camper needs a completed Health Form, Departure Release/Permission to Photograph Form, and Participation Release Form. All forms can be completed and submitted online at https://campburton.org/home/forms/
Q: Are cell phones allowed?
A: We do not permit camper to have cell phones. However, if parents want them to have a phone to call them sometime during the week, we will keep the phone in the office and they can use it to call home at prearranged times.
