Each day there is a cabin cleanup theme. Monday is anything pertaining to the camp theme, Tuesday is manly men and girly girls, Wednesday is counselor appreciation day, and Thursday is traps and tricks. Many campers and counselors like to bring decorating supplies for this purpose. It's a fun way to build cabin unity and earn points for your team. Please do not use duct tape on walls or bunks, lipstick on mirrors, or anything else that leaves a mess.

Please put camper's name on everything!  If you find that your child has lost something, call the Camp Office at (559) 337-2349. Found items are only held for two (2) weeks after camp.

We have the unique opportunity to create a setting that fosters spiritual, relational, and personal growth.  Your dress can help or hinder that goal so please be modest.  While this list does not include every imaginable article of clothing or fashion trend, here are some guidelines to help you keep everyone's best interests in mind.

  • Tops end where bottoms begin.  Your midriff belongs behind one or the other.
  • We’re all about unity when it comes to swimwear. Please wear modest one-piece bathing suits only (or a colored T-shirt over).
  • Underwear belongs UNDER your other clothes.  Don't go showing it off.
  • Sleepwear is for sleeping in.  Please don't wear your jammies around camp.
  • Yoga pants are for doing yoga in.  Save the tight fitting pants/shorts for the gym back home or cover them with a long shirt.
  • And as ironic as it may sound, the longer the shorts the better.  At least fingertip length please.

That about “covers” it - please do likewise (pun intended).


Hartland is very isolated and there are no gasoline stations nearby. Make sure you fill up before  you come up the mountain. If you are coming through Visalia, the last place to buy gas is in Lemon Cove. If you are coming from the North, the last place will be in Fresno.

 Note to Parents
 Directions to Hartland


It is our desire to provide a fun, yet safe, environment for each camper. In order to accomplish this, a Registered Nurse is on-site and available 24-hours-a-day to assist with medical emergencies, first-aid, and administration of medications. Please ensure that medical forms are filled out completely. All campers' medications must be in their original containers, labeled with name and clear instructions.
Medications should then be placed in one labeled zip-lock bag per individual. These bags are to be turned in to the nurse upon check-in.

You will receive a $42.00 reduction in camp fees for each camper. The individual camp fee for 2016 is $451, so that means you pay only $409 for each camper by registering as a group. Plus, each camper and counselor will receive a free camp tee shirt, a free camp photo, and free access to recreation activities. We will also provide you with a free promotional video and posters to get the word out to your students and parents.

Your Part:
1. You decide how many camper spots you want to reserve and mail or fax your Letter of Intent.
2. You secure the spots by signing the contract(s) and making a non-refundable deposit of $35 per camper.
3. You collect the completed registration cards and money from your campers.
4. You give the campers the confirmation information, medical forms, etc.
5. You supply one counselor for each 7 campers. There is no charge for the counselors to attend camp.
