Arrival time for each session is 3:30p on Sunday. Follow the signs to the correct building. Campers should pack their bathing suits near the top of the suitcase as the initial swimming test is one of the first things we do. Campers depart each Saturday between 9:30a and 11:00a.
How much does Summer Camp cost?
Tuition for each session is $440. The required deposit of $75 is applied to the total camp tuition. Tuition covers room and board, special activities, art supplies, camp photo and camp t-shirt. There are scholarships available
to help offset the cost.
Are there camp scholarships available?

Are there Parent & Child Sessions?
Yes. The Parent & Child sessions run during the Camp St. Joseph & Mary sessions (Sunday through Tuesday). They serve as an introduction to camp culture for both the parent and the child (k-2nd grade). Parent and child are invited to participate fully in all camp activities as much (or as little) as they are comfortable. Tuition for each session is $330 for one parent and one child ($90 for each additional child). Tuition covers room and board in a private lodge room, special activities, art supplies, camp photo and camp t-shirt.
What about First Aid and Healthcare?
A person trained in first aid and healthcare is present at each camp. This person collects the campers’ medication upon check-in and administers it throughout the camp session. They are also available to take care of the tummy aches and other needs that arise throughout the week. All campers are required to fill out a medical form prior to attending.
Can I send campers mail and care packages?
Letters and care packages are welcome! If you send a care package, please remember chocolate melts and is messy. Include airtight containers for any snacks you might send.

What forms are required for Summer Camp?
A completed and signed registration form AND a medical information and release form are due before camp begins. Once a registration form is received with a deposit, a confirmation letter and health form will be mailed to the camper. The health form must be completed and returned before the camper can attend Camp Honey Creek.
Can I visit campers during Summer Camp?
Visitors can be a distraction and disruption to the regular camp routine. Please speak with the Summer Camp Director before visiting during a session.
Should I send money for snacks and souvenirs?
Snacks are provided at no additional cost to campers, and each camper will receive a summer camp t-shirt and a photo of their session as a part of their camp fee. There is no need for campers to bring money to camp as there is no camp store.
