Info For Parents


SPECIAL 2021 NOTE: Camp has installed a new gate at the top of the hill and just after you past the state gamelands. That gate will only be open at specific times.  The gate is approximately a mile and a half from camp and prior arrangements outside of hours need to be made if you come at undesignated times.

Gate hours for registration Sundays will be from 3:30-5:00 P.M. each week. If you come in before that you will be able to drive no further than the gate which is around a 1.75 mile walk from camp. Please make an effort to register during these times.
Please plan accordingly as camp will have limited time to prepare and sanitize our camp as it will be after each week of camp during the season. Thank you for your cooperation. If you have questions, please contact the camp telephone number listed on our website.

1. Registration is from 3:30 to 5:00 PM. Note that all weeks begin on Sunday.

2. Please pick up your child by 9:30 AM on the following Saturday.

3. Parents are encouraged to write to their child while they are at camp. Address letters and cards to the camper at Camp’s address:
660 Camp Carmel Road
Dunbar, PA 15431

4. Camper fees for a week are $200. A first time camper is eligible for a $50 discount. Through generous donations of churches and individuals, we are able to keep this price low. Contributions are always welcomed and appreciated! Scholarships are available for those who need a sponsor.

5. For your information, our cost per camper for a week of camp is about $300. We have always attempted to keep registration fees within reach of the campers in our area. Therefore the price this year is only $200 for all campers. This is made possible by the financial support of our local churches. Contributions are always welcomed and appreciated!

6. You will be able to place money on the Camp Store Account for your child when you register at the camp. Any money left over will be refunded to the child at the end of the week. The store sells candy, pop, snacks and Camp Carmel items including T-shirts.

Note that there is a gate at the bike trail. If you arrive at camp at times other than drop off and pick up times the gate will be locked. In this case, you will need to walk into camp (about 100 yards) to ask a staff person to unlock the gate for you.
