Our program is more than a summer camp, and parental involvement
is vital to a child’s
success. Initially, the family completes an application
questionnaire that explores the camper’s abilities,
social adjustment and desired camp goals.
A Teacher Evaluation Form helps us understand the student’s
social needs while in school. The Nuhop staff then arranges
parent conferences and our orientation day at camp for all
new campers. DETAILED information is
in the camper application
form. This day conference provides personal observation,
informal discussion, and a general get acquainted session.
Often, a parent’s pre-camp anxieties are addressed at
The Pre-Camp Conference is required
unless travel time to and from camp exceeds 7½ hours. In this case, a phone conference, charged to
the parent, can replace the camp conference.
