How do I contact AICL during camp? Our office phone is 800-951-7442 and our camp email is firstname.lastname@example.org. We are mostly out and about with campers but we check messages frequently and will promptly return your calls. We will be happy to let you know how your camper is doing and to answer any questions you have.
Sunday Check-In: Check-in will be Sunday afternoon between 4 and 4:45 pm. In order to avoid long lines at check-in, we ask that you try to check-in according to your child’s last name: if their last name starts with A-J, please try to check-in between 4 and 4:15 pm. If their last name begins with K-P, please check-in around 4:20 pm, and if their last name begins with Q-Z, please check-in around 4:40 pm. During that time, families can help campers get settled into their rooms, and meet counselors, directors, and teachers. A little after five, parents will wave goodbye and camp will get under way.
Saturday’s Farewell Gathering: Saturday morning will feature performances and the presentation of certificates. Day campers and parents of all campers are invited to attend AICL closing ceremonies. Please show up at 10 am to see all the festivities!
