Checks Should be Made Payable To: Camp Wilderness. (Payment is not due until the first day of camp.)


Campers should arrive after 4:00PM for registration at Groves Hall on the first day of camp. Your child will receive his/her cabin assignment during registration. Having your payment and completed Registration Packet ready will speed up the registration process.

Note: Parents are required to sign-out and sign-in their children if they need to leave the campground during the week. Returning campers prior to 10:00PM is appreciated.


Campers should be picked up by 9:30AM on the last day of camp.

Phone Calls:

We do not encourage phone calls during the week. With the number of campers we have, it would be impossible for us to allow them all to call home. Additionally, campers are not allowed to bring cell phones with them to camp. If you are concerned about your child, or for emergencies, you can call the camp at (573) 292-0116, and we will have them return your call at their first opportunity.

Camper Bank Accounts:

Extra spending money will be collected at registration and kept in camper/staff accounts to be used at the snack bar and off-camp activities.  (Please bring one-dollar bills to place in your child's bank envelope on registration day).  Any remaining balances will be refunded on the last day of camp.

Lice Policy:

As you prepare your child for camp, please take a few minutes to make sure your child does not have head lice. This is easily accomplished by lifting up the hair along the temple, behind the ears and along the back of the neck. If you find lice, please treat your child and their belongings with products that are available for this purpose. During registration, we will be checking each camper for lice. If evidence of lice is found, the camper will not be allowed to stay at camp. Your money will be refunded, and your child will be sent home with you. As with all our medical policies and health procedures, this policy has been put in place to make summer camp a safe and enjoyable experience for all our campers. Thank you in advance for complying with our request. For further information on head lice and proper treatment, go to the following web site:
