General Camp information


To enhance your child's experience at Pony Gang Camp here are some basic information about Pony Gang Camp. 

 


Visitor & Call Policy

 

We no longer allow campers to have visitors during any of our camp sessions or receive phone calls from parents and family members. 

Our experience shows that this only makes campers homesick.

Parents are more then welcome to contact the Camp director if they like to get some information how their camper is doing.  We offer also other ways to keep in contact with your daughter and see how she is doing in Camp. 


Laundry 

All campers can have their laundry washed, dried and folded at Camp. Please make sure to send clothing of a simple nature that will look neat with a tumble-dry process (colors and whites mixed together). Laundry day is Saturdays and will be returned by Sunday. 

Number of times your daughter's clothes will be washed: 

1 week Camp - No laundry service, due to short session

2 week Camp - 1 time 

3 week Camp - 2 times

4 week Camp - 3 times 

Girls that stay longer as one week must change bunk sheets ones a week, please send one sheet per week your daughter will stay here at Camp. Note: that we are not washing personal sheets in our laundry service. 


Bunks and Decoration 

Bedding

Campers are required to bring their own bedding. One twin sheet per week staying in camp. Pillows and 2 pillow cases if staying longer as one week. Also Comforter, warmer blanket for cold nights and lighter blanket for the hot summer nights. 

Bunk Decorations 

Starting 2020 Campers are aloud to decorate their Bunk area to make their space feel more like home.

Head to Toe Rule 

In order to follow health regulations starting 2020 all bunkbeds will be set up Head-to-Toe, meaning that campers in one bunkbed cannot have their heads facing the same directions. 

 


Birthdays

A Birthday is a very special day for every camper and so we are hear at Pony Gang will do everything to make this happen. Camper will receive a small Birthday Cake, all Campers will sing "Happy Birthday" to them. In the evening we will have a Birthday party with all Overnight campers for her, play fun games and have a little dance. 


Camp Pal

New in 2020 will be our Camp Pal program. End of April / beginning of May you will receive a card with name of your daughters Camp Pal, who will be a camper in the same session. Please encourage your daughter to write her Camp Pal. Just imagine how disappointed it is when a Camp Pal wouldn't write.
