Keeping in Touch With Your Camper(s) During the Summer
Communications from the Campers: Parents are assured of at least one letter from their son each week, as all campers are required to turn in a letter to gain admittance to lunch on Sunday. Nothing like a little motivation! To encourage additional communication from your son, equip him with postcards that are good for jotting quick notes each day or so. Don’t forget to send plenty of stamps, envelopes & writing paper.
Communications from Home
As you can imagine, the campers LOVE to get mail! Our mailing address for the US Postal Service is:
C/O Camp Mowglis
P.O. Box 9
Hebron, NH 03241
Our mailing address for UPS and FedEx is:
4 Mowglis Drive
Hebron, NH 03241
Each camper has his own mailbox, where his mail is deposited each morning. For first time campers, it’s nice to have frequent mail, so enlist additional relatives or friends to send mail as well, but we suggest not overdoing it as it is important for campers to be able to focus on the fun they are having at camp. Letters don’t have to be long, as most campers seem to enjoy the quantity of mail!
When writing to your son, it’s a good idea to keep your letters from home upbeat and “newsy” without making your son feel as though he is missing out on tons of fun. Try to avoid phrases like, “We miss you terribly, it is so lonely and we can hardly stand it here without you,” but rather, “We know you are having a wonderful experience,” or “You are so fortunate to be at camp.”
During the summer, every other day, we post pictures of camp life on our Facebook profile, which is called Nick Robbins (Mowglis Profile for Parents). This is a profile just for camper parents to be friends with and see camp photos.
To see them, please become a friend of Camp Mowglis. While we do our best to take pictures of everybody, we cannot guarantee that we will have pictures of your son posted. If you have questions about how he is doing, please call or email the office for an update. There is also a Camp Mowglis Alumni Facebook group which is for our alumni and a public page for the general public.
