Parents please remember:

  • It is very important that the campers arrive at the bus stop on time and that a parent/guardian stays with your child until they get on the bus and should be waiting when your child gets off the bus. We will not leave a child unattended but our counselors are not intended to be responsible for campers until they get on the bus. Similarly, our counselors are not intended to be responsible for campers once campers get off the bus.
  • Bus drivers have final authority on the bus.
  • In order to provide space for everyone who wants/needs bus transportation, please notify us of your decision about riding the bus no later than three days before each week begins. If you signed up for transportation during registration, you do not have to contact us unless your plans change.
  • The NDC Code of Conduct applies to transportation as well as to camp facilities.
  • If your child’s transportation to or from camp changes (for example, your child needs to get off the bus in Sedgwick instead of Blue Hill one day because they are going over to a friend’s after camp), please contact us at the camp office.  If your child will be late or absent, please call the camp office: 359-4900.

Testimonials
This is a wonderful camp with very committed and enthusiastic counselors, in a wonderful location on Walker Pond. Unlike snooty and expensive camps that provide too much to children, this is an unpretentious environment that teaches respect for self, others and nature.
