Parent-Daughter Weekend

 

Each spring, Camp Juliette Low hosts a special weekend for girls, ages 6 to 15, and their parents to experience all the excitement of camp compressed into two fun-filled days!

 

This weekend is a chance for…

  • New or prospective campers (ages 6 to 15) to become more comfortable with the outdoor life at camp
  • Returning campers to bring a friend to “try out” camp
  • Parents to learn more about CJL and to share in the fun!

 

Parent-Daughter Weekend is April 30-May 2, 2021

About Parent-Daughter Weekend

Activities: During Parent-Daughter Weekend, campers and parents participate in four classes (canoeing, archery, crafts, and the climbing wall) and many camp activities including games, singing, campfires, and (weather permitting) playing in the swimming hole at the river. Parents are given the chance to enjoy classes and camp activities with their daughters, as well as meet with the directors and some of the summer staff.

 

Meals: Camp will provide three delicious meals on Saturday, and breakfast on Sunday. Meals are handled just as they are during the summer: the kitchen staff prepares the food, and the campers (girls and moms and dads) supply the clean-up power.

 

Special diets: Given adequate notice, we can accommodate campers who are vegetarian and have moderate food allergies and sensitivities. Please notify the camp of any special dietary needs as soon as possible but no later than one month prior to your arrival at camp. Gluten free diets will incur a $10 fee per person to defray the costs of preparing special meals. The fee will be added after your application is received, and you will be notified at that time. If you have any questions, please contact the camp office.

 

Tent-living and tentmate requests: At CJL, campers sleep in sturdy, 4-person platform tents. The camp is divided into four units, each consisting of seven camper tents and one counselors' tent. Each girl and her parent (mom, dad, or other guardian) will sleep together in a tent with two other assigned tent mates. If you are bringing two daughters, both parents/guardians may attend to make a tent of four. If you need to register more than four family members, please call the camp office so that we can make accommodations. You may also request another parent-camper pair to be your tentmates or request to be in the same unit as another family.

 

Cost: $75.00 per person. Includes 4 meals, snacks, craft supplies, classes, and staffing costs. Full payment is due at the time of registration.

 

Refunds: After registering for Parent-Daughter Weekend, if you find you can not attend, a full refund will be given before April 1. After April 1, refunds are given only if your spot is filled, so please let us know as soon as possible. We normally have a wait-list of families who are ready to attend at the last minute!
