If I have a white child and a black child, should I bring my white child also? We want to create an experience where black children can experience other black children. White children in Utah get to see white children every day. Black children rarely get to see each other and play together. We have allowed white children in the past. We also like to teach white children how to be allies.
How much is camp? It varies but we will not turn away ANY child because they can't pay for camp.
Are the cabins air conditioned? NO, and they are hot. Bring fans.
What should my child bring to camp? 4 Changes of clothes, a swim suit, sunscreen, bug spray, a water bottle, a towel, a pillow, a blanket, a warm sweatshirt for nights. If you have a life jacket bring one, supplies are limited and kids must share life jackets.
How many parents are allowed to attend with their children? We would prefer that one parent attend. The more people who attend, the more we have to pay for food. Food is extremely expensive for camp.
