Frequently Asked Questions

What will my child eat?

Aldersgate provides campers with a healthy balanced meal by providing a variety of home-cooked, kid-friendly meals. Our food is always prepared fresh and never frozen. There are always options for picky eaters as each breakfast is served with a breakfast bar (bagels, cereal, fruit, yogurt, etc) and each lunch and supper include an extensive salad bar. Tasty desserts are served once a day with supper.

Who is taking care of my child?

Staff members, paid and volunteer, are carefully screened and selected, benefit from training, and are led by a year-round staff with 25+ years of camp & retreat ministry experience. The staff is comprised of college students, adults of all ages, and junior staff assistants ages 15-17 with close supervision.

How does health care work?

Health care is provided through the health director and Registered Nurse and all staff have training in their health care responsibilities. Staff follows Camp Doctor’s standing orders for minor illness & injury, including first aid and over the counter medications.

Where will my child live?

3rd-5th Graders live in the Lodge or Cottage with a cozy home-like feel including bathrooms on the hall. 6th-12th Graders enjoy a traditional camp experience living in one of our cabins, complete with attached porch and bathrooms nearby.
