Friend Requests

Click here to fill out our Friend Request Questionnaire.

Please fill out our questionnaire if you would like your camper to be grouped with one of their friends while at camp. While we will do our best to accommodate your wishes, please keep in mind the following:  

  1. Your request MUST be submitted at least one week prior to your camper's first week of attendance 
  2. Enrollment in Learn to Swim may affect our ability to accommodate your friend request. 
  3. Requests will only be honored with the consent of parents/guardian from EACH child. The parent/guardian of each camper must complete this form independently, for it to be honored.
  4. We will honor requests for groups of up to THREE children. Please do not write more than two friends' names on the request form. 

We will do our best to accommodate your request, however, submitting this form DOES NOT guarantee that your child will be paired with their friend. There are many factors to consider when creating camp groups and we reserve the right to create them as we see fit.
