You should plan to drop off your campers at 4:00 p.m. on Sunday afternoon and pick them up at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday morning. (Times for day campers and mini campers will differ.)

Please drop them off at the check-in tent in the parking lot. In accordance with CDC guidelines, we ask that parents remain in their cars. Counselors will help transport each camper's luggage to the relevant cabin or hogan. Pick up on Saturday morning will follow the same pattern with parents remaining in their cars while counselors bring campers and luggage out of Calvin Hall.

Please read this letter from Director Dan about our COVID-19 actions.

These are just a few of the American Camp Association and CDC guidelines that we are implementing to keep campers and staff safe during this continuing national pandemic.

All CampDoc registration forms MUST be 100% complete online BEFORE the camper arrives at camp.

Camp Carew provides a setting in which the Christian faith can be experienced in fellowship with others.

American Camp Association.

We seek to help people deepen their awareness of God, each other, and the natural world by providing a camp program and a setting in which personal growth can take place. Our goal is that campers will strengthen their own sense of personal worth as well as their relationship to Jesus Christ and to others.

Activities at Camp Carew are directed toward Christian community. Through group living in the small unit, campers and leaders are challenged to work, plan, play, study, sing, and worship together.

Presbyterian Church Camp and Conference Association.

Camp Carew is accredited by the American Camp Association. It is also a member of the Presbyterian Church Camp and Conference Association.
