I Annual Membership Meeting:
Camp Adahi is owned and operated by Camp Fire USA Adahi Council, one of the
D nation’s leading youth development organizations, which is comprised of many
members and overseen by a Board of Directors. As a membership organization,
Adahi Council holds an annual membership meeting each August. This meeting
E provides families vital information about the state of the council, as well as an
opportunity to become involved in council decisions. We urge all Camp Adahi
L families to participate in this aspect of your child’s development. August 5, 2009.
If a camper has an appointment during the program hours, parents/guardians
I should leave written notice with the staff member at check-in. A notice will be
given to the staff member in charge of the camper’s group, requesting that the
N camper be prepared. The camper will be waiting with a staff member at the
Multi-Purpose room located near the swimming pool.
Please park in our upper parking lot. Proceed to our Camp Office (Hillside) with
your child’s belongings. Check-In will ensue at Hillside where our staff will
S collect any paperwork, payments or medications you may have. We will also
conduct a brief examination of your child’s physical condition in your presence.
All campers will have their belongings with them at check-out, Friday evening.

may visit and purchase an afternoon snack or camp souvenirs. Items are
generally inexpensive. We do not allow campers to carry money; store
accounts must be opened at Check-In. We recommend approximately $50.00,
and any transactions concerning the store account must be made at the time of
P Check-In. We will also honor any parental restrictions on store purchases.

It is quite normal for campers to experience homesickness. Our staff is prepared to identify
such feelings and encourage campers to participate in the camp activities. Generally campers
adjust to their surroundings and thrive in our program within a few days. In the event that your
child does not adapt well (by the third day), our director will contact the parent to discuss any

their possession at Camp Adahi.

off while the driver is away from the vehicle. In addition, Camp Adahi only allows authorized camp
vehicles beyond the Upper Parking lot. Arrangements for handicap parking can be made with the
The pool is divided into sections (red - 0’-3’, yellow - 4’-6’, blue - 6’-9’). For safety precautions our

on duty at all times.

Total Family Concept:
For more than a decade, Camp Fire USA Adahi Council has been committed to family strengthening. With
the inception of the Total Family Concept in 1996, Adahi Council has served families in a variety of
capacities with one common goal: to develop essential skills and assets in youth through family
togetherness and development.
Upon youth enrollment into any of our programs, the Total Family Concept entitles the entire family to a
council membership. This membership provides numerous benefits that include special programs and
events that are geared toward family strengthening and youth development. These programs and events
(holiday parties, field trips, service opportunities, etc.) are held throughout the year, with weekly events
during the summer, and monthly events during the school year.
Visitation and Communication:
We do not allow family visits during the camping session. Our mission is to build caring, confident
youth and we believe this is accomplished when your child is allowed to experience camp
However, we do welcome other forms of communication from family members! Emails can be sent to
firstname.lastname@example.org with your child’s name in the subject line. Care packages and letters may be
