Miscellaneous Policies


PROMPT attention will be given to a camper who is ill or seriously injured and the C.F. staff will call the emergency contacts that are provided.


OVER-the-counter and prescription medications, brought by campers, will be dispensed by the C. F. staff. C.F. has a registered pharmacist on staff. First aid supplies will be provided by C.F.


NO visitation to the campsite is permitted during the sessions. You may visit the campsite by appointment prior to the summer or after your camper is through with the checkout process on the Saturday of their scheduled session.


BE sure to plan ahead and write a letter or post card to your camper, as mail is one of the highlights of the day. Please do not emphasize how much you miss them. Instead, tell them how proud you are of them. Please do not send any food or candy or musical greeting cards.

Telephone/E-mail Accessibility

CAMPERS are not accessible by phone except in the case of an emergency. Nor is the JLMH telephone number and e-mail address to be used to check on the status of a camper; we are not able to reply to that kind of inquiry.

Camp Store

THERE is no food or postage stamps for sale. However, there are over 100 reproduction items (colonial period). Several of these items cost just $1 (i.e.: feathers, toy metal soldiers, and paper fans). A few items cost upwards of $100 (a sword for example) and the rest are in a price range that falls in between.


CAMPERS are not permitted, under any circumstances, to bring: Firearms; Fireworks; Alcohol; Non-prescribed drugs; Tobacco products of any kind; Any and all electronic items (i.e.: electronic games, radios, iPods, video cameras, cell phones, etc.) with the exception of cameras.
