What if my child has food allergies or dietary restrictions? Our dining staff prepare a variety of healthy meals, which always include a vegetarian option. We are able to accommodate peanut and other such allergies. Please contact us to discuss your specific needs.
What if my child becomes ill? Our 10-bed health center staffed by 3 nurses and a doctor on call provides expert medical attention for campers. Three modern hospital facilities are located within 9 miles of NEMC.
What if my child gets homesick? It is very common for kids of all ages to feel “homesick” during their first day or two at camp. Our counseling staff is trained to identify when campers are missing home and work to facilitate a smooth transition that meets the needs of each individual camper. Many of our professional camp staff are parents themselves and will admit that it is not uncommon for a parent to have more difficulty with the initial separation than their child, who is typically preoccupied with a busy camp schedule.
Are there Covid-19 Safety Protocols in place? Yes. Should the Covid-19 pandemic still be active upon the start of our season, a series of protocols will be in place. These protocols will be announced later in the Spring. If implemented, they will include: self quarantine and testing prior to arrival, rapid testing upon arrival, daily temperature checks, limited indoor activities, and potentially a closed campus.
