PARTICIPANT GUIDE

WELCOME! On behalf of our camp staff, we want to take this opportunity to tell you how excited we are that you will be joining us at camp! The camp setting in the woods of Brown County is the ideal place to experience the wonder of nature. We will be spending time outdoors canoeing, climbing, hiking, playing games, making art, shooting arrows, and exploring the woods, pond and creek. Meals are shared in our dining hall. In the evening, we will enjoy a campfire filled with songs, skits, and stories. There are opportunities throughout the day to have fun and learn. We’re glad you’ll be joining us and we look forward to welcoming you to Camp Rancho Framasa! This handy sheet should tell you everything you need to know. Please read through it carefully and ma ke sure we’ve answered your questions. We have included information to orient you to the practices we have added due to COVID-19. Our goal is to keep everyone safe. We are grateful for your compliance. If you need more information, please contact Lauren, Camp Registrar, at 812-988-2839, x122 or registrar@campranchoframasa.org.

Peace,

They can provide Band-Aids, topical ointments, and ice packs. ● If the need arises for further assistance, staff will provide directions to our local doctor and regional hospitals.

If you will be bringing babies, toddlers, or preschoolers, you will need carriers or sturdy strollers to move about camp. It is an option to carry children but some of the activities are far apart so this may not be practical or comfortable. ● Vehicles are NOT allowed to drive around camp property except during check-in, check-out and trips to town. If you have mobility support needs, we have a single golf cart available for all those at camp. Participants will not be permitted to drive the camp golf carts. A staff member will provide rides as needed from one area to another in a shuttle fashion. This may require some wait time.

Due to limited resources, we may not be able to meet all requests. ● At camp, we are stewards of the Earth.
