    child will receive their medication from our nurses typically at meal times The nursing staff will follow the specific guidelines on the prescription We assure you that all medications are kept confidential and campers are never singled out or embarrassed about taking medications During a wilderness trip counselors or trip leaders will dispense the medications Return to the top of the page My child has food allergies and needs a special diet Can camp accommodate this Yes Our Food Service Manager can meet virtually any dietary need as long as advanced notice is given Please give specifics about allergies or dietary needs on your camper s health form part of the online registration process If you would like to speak directly with our food service manager we can arrange that as well Return to the top of the page Can we visit our child during camp The day before the end of each camp session we have a Family Day when families can come and visit their child at camp Parents of campers in Service Team and Assistant Counselors can visit their child during any of the Family Days We do not allow visits during normal camp time This is disruptive to our staff other campers and the camp program in general This includes parents who are renting cabins at HoneyRock while their child is in camp Return to the top of the page Can we talk to our child on the phone while they are at camp It is important for your child to fully engage in his her HoneyRock experience which means allowing him her to put some distance between you Campers that are dependent on calling their parents while at camp are unable to participate in the full HoneyRock experience because they are more focused on what is going on at home than on what they are actually experiencing while at camp For this reason we do not allow campers to have cell phones Campers in all programs except Service Team and Assistant Counselors are not allowed time on the phone to make or receive calls If you wish to communicate with your child the best way to do so is by writing letters or by sending one way emails that are available for purchase on the registration portal We encourage campers to write letters home and we give them time to write letters If there is an emergency and you need to get in touch with your child please call 715 479 7474 and the receptionist can help you If you call after business hours a detailed message will instruct you on how to reach someone Return to the top of the page What if my child gets homesick How can I prepare my child for camp Each summer there are campers who have not been away from home very much and they become homesick This is totally normal and our staff is trained to identify homesickness and deal with it in a positive way We find that the best way to prevent homesickness is to help prepare your child for camp Begin by praying with and for your child about his her camp experience being sure to include his her counselors or trip leaders Set goals for camp with your child such as make a new friend achieve a certain activity award become a Solid Rock Club member etc Let your child know how excited you are that s he is going to have this experience at camp It is okay for your child to know that you will miss him or her but be sure to communicate your excitement for your child Explain what they will be doing where they will sleep how the bathrooms work what is different what is fun etc Also we encourage campers to spend a night or two or more at a friend s house or Grandma and Grandpa s house without mom or dad before coming to camp If a child s first night away from mom and dad happens at camp then homesickness is more likely to occur Read more about camp preparation on our Preparing for Camp page That being said if a child becomes homesick our staff is highly trained to deal with it effectively We make sure that homesick campers fully engage in activities We encourage other campers to befriend them more Our counselors spend extra time with them In our 60 years of experience we have found that letting a child call home when they are homesick does not alleviate homesickness and in fact it really makes things worse Calling home is a last resort and it typically results in a child requesting to come home and mom or dad picking them up from camp the next morning Return to the top of the page What is your staff to camper ratio Our typical ratio is 2 8 Occasionally it is slightly more or slightly less Return to the top of the page Where will my child sleep and what are the bathrooms like If your child is part of an in camp program like Residential Camp Advance Camp and Assistant Counselors they will stay in a rustic style log cabin that has electricity the Village Cabins Boys sleep in large canvas tents with wooden platforms while girls bunk in modern cabins with bathrooms and showers Cabins do not have running water or their own bathrooms instead we use a centralized bathhouse or as they are called here at camp a BIF Bathroom in the Forest Each BIF has 10 12 private showers and 10 12 private toilets sinks and mirrors The water is heated as well Both the girls and boys BIFs were newly renovated the summer of 2012 Service Team stays in dormitory style rooms with attached bathrooms 2 22 participants stay in large canvas tents on wooden platforms while at camp and in camping tents on tarps while on wilderness trips They are trained to use the outdoors as a
