Dear Main Idea Parent/Guardian,

Thank you for making the decision to send your daughter to The Main Idea at Camp Walden this summer! The Main Idea has the goal to provide your daughter with an adventurous and fun filled ten days. We encourage personal growth through facing exciting challenges, working together as a team, and building lasting friendships. I am certain that your daughter will have the time of her life!

If your daughter is a returning camper, I am sure that by now you have all received a letter from me and will soon hear from your agency contact about this coming summer! The dates for the 2013 summer are August 14-24th. It is the expectation that all campers stay for the entire 10-day session. Our camp policy is that while at camp, campers are allowed to send letters and postcards home, but may not receive or make phone calls.

To guarantee a spot for your child for the 2013 season your child has to be officially registered. The registration process includes; filling out and mailing in a camper application, health form and immunization records, and the federal food form that verifies your daughter qualifies for the federal free and reduced lunch program. Please note that a doctor must sign the health form! All paperwork must be completed in its entirety and returned to your agency no later than May 1st. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me. Also, please take notice of the camper packing list that contains recommendations of what to pack and what not to pack!

I look forward to meeting your daughter this summer and sharing an awesome camp experience with her!

Warmest Regards,

Dawn Plourde, Director
