At Chippewa we believe one of the most important aspects of growing up is developing independence. Part of that process is managing the way we communicate during the summer. Of course we want you to be in touch with your daughter, but at the same time we want her to experience being away from home in an independent way.
With that in mind, we ask that campers use writing as a tool to communicate during the summer. Chippewa girls write home twice per week at a minimum, but they can (and typically do) write more often.
We do find it important to provide our parents with a window into their daughter’s camp experience so here are some other ways to keep up with what is going on during the summer.
Whether you are new to Chippewa or not, we want you to feel “in the loop” and be able to share your daughter’s experience in as many ways as possible. On the other hand, feel free to relax, travel and enjoy your summer without a care; your daughter will be in great hands!
