For Parents

A message from our CEO, for parents considering Camp Tannadoonah,


We would love to welcome you to our Camp Family. This summer, just like the past 102 summers, we strive to provide a program that will provide your camper the opportunities to learn find their Sparks, lift their voice, and discover who they are. That's Our Promise at Camp Fire and Camp Tannadoonah. Camp offers campers an opportunity to gain self confidence, develop new social skills, get creative, be silly, let go and make their own choices. We hope they will leave camp filled with fond memories of time spent with friends, learning new skills, and have a new level of confidence. If you haven't read it yet, we encourage you to check out this blog post about what makes Camp Tannadoonah special.

We recognize that although your child is the one coming to camp, this is also a big decision for you as a parent and family. Our parent guide is here to help you and your camper make the most of their camp experience! You’ll find information about the activity sign-up process, tips on how to minimize and handle homesickness, a list of helpful links, and a better overall understanding of the “world of Camp.” There are also plenty of specific instructions on things like what to pack and other logistical concerns.

We hope you will choose Camp Tannadoonah for your child. And if you don't, we hope you will find a camp that can be a safe place to become their best self. Please feel free to contact us at any time, with questions, concerns, or comments. Or just to talk about Camp!
