Many campers from other countries have found a home away from home at Camp Laurel. In order to accomplish this, we communicate with each family to help them with everything from filling out camp applications to arranging special transportation tailored to the needs of the camper. Additionally, we make specific arrangements for camper-to-parent phone calls due to the distance and time zones. At Laurel, we go above and beyond to ensure that all of our campers have a successful and easy transition.
