Our overnight campers have the opportunity to visit the Trading Post, our camp store, each weekday. The store has items like camp t-shirts/gear, trinkets, soda, candy, snacks and the world’s best ice cream! You are able to deposit spending money into their “Trading Post Account” either online in advance (recommended to reduce wait time at drop off) or upon arrival at camp. The account basically works like a debit system each time they come through. We are happy to provide them with their daily balance so they know what they have left. We typically recommend that parents deposit $25-$35 into the account but you are more than welcome to leave as much or as little as you would like. These funds are used by your camper to purchase items in the Trading Post, crafts in our Craft Loft, paintball tickets (paintball is free during boys paintball week) and to give our guest speaker/missionary of the week a love gift for their ministry. Any leftover funds will be refunded in cash and can be picked up in the camp store on Saturday when you pick up your child. Funds under $10 that are left behind by parents on Saturday will not be mailed to you by our office. These neglected funds will be added to the Sankanac Good Samaritan fund for campers who cannot afford to bring spending money. Coins will not be mailed back even if the refund is above $10.

Day campers visit the Trading Post on Tuesdays & Thursdays. Parents are welcomed to send along spending money (cash) on those days.

Parent Info & Packing List

Thank you for your interest in sending your child to Camp Sankanac. We are looking forward to having your child here. As we plan for camp, our desire is to make it a rewarding experience for every child who attends.

Every activity is supervised by a counselor prepared to give helpful care to each camper. The competent leadership provided at Sankanac means each camper will receive the best of care. We are very conscious of the responsibility involved in having children in our care, and every precaution is taken for safety and health measures in every phase of camp life.

With the Lord’s enablement, our goal is to make your child’s stay a most rewarding and memorable experience. We are trusting each will return home at the end of the camp period stronger physically, mentally and spiritually. Please feel free to contact us concerning any questions you might have.

Please take a look at the appropriate Parent Info sheet for each camp:

2021 Horse Day Camp Parent Information

2021 DAY CAMP PARENT INFO

2021 OVERNIGHT CAMP PARENT INFORMATION & PACKING LIST (Basketball, Horse, and Regular Overnight Camps)

  •  All campers are covered by accident and sickness insurance. Camp Sankanac will submit all claims to the parents/guardians/child’s insurance company first.
  • All Campers desiring to stay for more than one week of camp must return home for the weekend.
  • By registering your child, you give permission to Camp Sankanac to use pictures and video taken during camp for our website and promotional materials.

Here at Camp Sankanac, we understand the importance of nurturing friendships and relationships between campers. We encourage our campers, not only in building relationships with their established friends, but in building relationships with all of the campers in their cabin and village.  Some campers come with a friend and some don’t. When assigning campers to cabins, we do our absolute best, not only to accommodate mutual cabinmate requests, but to make sure that the entire cabin dynamic is balanced and as healthy as possible, giving each camper a great chance for a positive cabin experience while here at Sankanac. In order to do both, we ask that campers who would like to room with a friend, please choose one cabinmate per session. The request must be mutual between the two campers. Campers must be in the same village according to their age group (Creekside: 7-10yo, Pinesite: 11-12yo, Cliffside: 13-16yo). Thank you for understanding our policy. For questions regarding this policy, please contact us at info@campsankanac.org. We prayerfully consider each and every camper when assigning campers to their cabins and truly strive for each camper to have the best possible experience at Sankanac.

FAQ’s

Due to the nature of summer camp and the many instances where it is unsafe to wear masks (eating, sleeping, swimming, etc), we will not be requiring our campers or staff to wear masks during the day (however, foodservice and nursing staff will wear masks and will be behind plexiglass barriers for food/medication distribution). We will however, be following the guidelines for cohorting in smaller groups with no intermingling between cohorted groups of campers unless appropriately socially distanced. Each program/village will be it’s own cohort with a separate schedule for the day. We will also ask that campers do pack a mask and keep it with them if there comes an instance when social distancing cannot be achieved. If you as a parent prefer that your child wear a mask for the majority of the day they are welcomed to do so if preferred. For more details regarding our 2021 Covid-19 Action Plan please CLICK HERE.

Our staff are experienced with preparing foods and caring for campers who have food allergies and special diets of all kinds. Please be sure to fill out the health form completely in the sections that require details about your child’s dietary needs. The more information we have, the better we can care for your child. PLEASE DO NOT WAIT UNTIL YOU ARRIVE TO LET US KNOW OF A FOOD ALLERGY/SPECIAL DIET. Please be sure this information is filled out entirely when you register and if at any point it needs updated or added to, please log back in online and update it.  In addition to providing details on the online health form, please contact our Food Service Director one week in advance at foodservice@campsankanac.org to discuss the menu for the week and possible substitutions if needed. If the allergy/special diet is extreme, we may encourage you to send along some supplemental favorites that your child typically eats at home. Thank you for your cooperation as we work together to ensure that your camper feels comfortable and cared for while at camp!

Here at Camp Sankanac, we understand the importance of nurturing friendships and relationships between campers. We encourage our campers, not only in building relationships with their established friends, but in building relationships with all of the campers in their cabin and village.  Some campers come with a friend and some don’t. When assigning campers to cabins, we do our absolute best, not only to accommodate mutual cabinmate requests, but to make sure that the entire cabin dynamic is balanced and as healthy as possible, giving each camper a great chance for a positive cabin experience while here at Sankanac. In order to do both, we ask that campers who would like to room with a friend, please choose one cabinmate per session. Request must be mutual between the two campers. Campers must be in the same village according to their age group (Creekside: 7-10yo, Pinesite: 11-12yo, Cliffside: 13-16yo). Thank you for understanding our policy. For questions regarding this policy, please contact us at info@campsankanac.org. We prayerfully consider each and every camper when assigning campers to their cabins and truly strive for each camper to have the best possible experience at Sankanac!

Yes. Please “Like” us on Facebook for periodic updates about how the week is going.  If you would like an update on your child specifically, please contact our office during office hours and we will check with your child’s counselor and call you back with an update. Please be patient as this can take some time, depending on the time of day and what activities the campers are involved in.

We ask that all electronics be left at home. Our position is that for one week campers should break away from their regular routine and focus on the activities that they are here to do. We don’t want them to be distracted with the texting, video games or video use that often come along with cell phones. If there is an emergency at home you could call the camp and contact your child that way. If there is ever an emergency here, the parent would be the first to be notified.

Sure! However, we do ask that you pay the deposit in full in order to secure your child’s registration. The balance can be paid in small increments at your convenience. We do ask that the final balance be paid prior to camp or upon arrival.

Camp Sankanac has two separate sets of staff that are trained to meet the needs of the campers without the distractions that a co-ed program could cause. Each program is designed to specifically cater to the specific needs that each gender provides.

No, Camp Sankanac only takes registration through the online registration process. After initial registration is complete, final or subsequent payments can be made by phone.  

Yes, we take credit cards through our online registration as well as during camper registration on the first day of camp for final payments.

Camp Sankanac offers family-style meals. As a participant and award winner in the Department of Education’s Summer Food Service Program, we have high standards in providing delicious and healthy meal options each day. Breakfasts include hot items as well as cereal/milk each day. Lunch and Dinner include a balance of protein, starch, veggies/fruit and dairy. Our food staff have years of experience preparing meals for kids, so we have a good understanding of kid-friendly meals. Have a picky eater?   Our policy is that we encourage the campers to try a little bit of everything at the table. Even picky eaters are encouraged to step out of their comfort zone and try new things while at camp. Much of the time, they will actually end up liking things they thought they wouldn’t.

Yes! We have an open house in April each year. This is the perfect time for new families to get a thorough tour of the camp, meet some of our staff and ask any questions you may have…not to mention, it’s an awesome family day! We’ll have pony rides, hayrides, archery tag, blacklight dodgeball games, free snacks (popcorn, cotton candy, etc) and our camp store will be open! Don’t miss it! If you’re not able to make it to the open house, you are welcome to contact our office at 610-469-6320 to schedule a tour.

YES! The campers love to receive letters and packages. Just send it to the camp address – 68 Bertolet School Rd., Spring City, PA 19475. Please write the camper’s name and cabin on the envelope and be sure to mail it out early in the week so they receive it by Friday. You can also  save on postage and let your beloved camper know how much you miss them by purchasing a personalized care package on our Camper Care Package page.  Packages/letters can also be dropped off along with your camper on Sunday and we will hand them out on whatever days you choose. Please leave these packages/letters inside the front door of our office building on the mail table to the left when you walk in the front door. Thanks!
