Attending overnight camp is an opportunity for your child to gain independence. To support our camp programming and promote an unplugged experience we encourage campers and parents to communicate through written letters but also provide other means by which to let your child know you’re thinking of them.
Campers love to receive mail. Families can send mail in advance. Campers will receive the mail each day after lunch. Please note that regular program planning may delay mail disbursement by a few hours.If sending care packages, please read the following:
PLEASE USE POST OFFICE FOR PACKAGES
Please send all packages through the Post Office so they will be delivered TO CAMP rather than the other side of the lake. Packages sent through UPS or Fed-EX may miss getting to your camper. US Postal Service Address Camper's Full Name - Grade in Fall Session # Camp Sweyolakan34313 W Coeur d’Alene Lake Shore Coeur d’Alene, ID 83814
Sending a fax is another easy way to let your child know you’re thinking of them. Faxes are distributed with the mail each day after lunch. Please note, however, our fax machine has been out at camp for many summers so photos do not fax well. Regular program planning may delay mail disbursement by a few hours. Campers do not have access to the fax machine for return communication. Fax Number Please remember to include: Camper's Full Name, Grade in Fall (208) 664-4857
