Our Summer Camp program encourages growth, independence, and confidence-building. Therefore, we prefer that our campers spend their time enjoying nature, making friends, and broadening their horizons, rather than emailing or making phone calls. Parents are encouraged to send letters or utilize our one-way email system to stay in touch with their campers.

One-Way Email

We offer a one-way email option for parents to send messages to their campers. These are distributed to campers at mail time. During camp season, please log in to our online registration system for more details. This service is provided free of charge.

Mail & Packages

You are welcome to send your camper mail while they are at camp. Please note, it takes several days for mail to arrive at Hidden Villa due to our location.
