At this time, we do not provide transportation. The Chestnut Hill School is T- accessible. We are just minutes from The Chestnut Hill Stop on the D-line. Additionally, a complimentary shuttle is offered to families who have at least one camper at our CHS campus and at least one camper at our PMC campus in the same session, thus, allowing families to pick up or drop off at just one campus.
Early drop off is available beginning at 7:45am and extended day is available until 5:30pm for an additional fee.
Campers can bring their own lunch or purchase a plan (see details below). Please note that refrigeration and heating are not available; please use an ice pack if necessary. We provide hand wipes for all campers before and after snack and lunch. Sharing of food is not allowed.
Please note that camp provides lunch (i.e BBQ or Pizza) on the first Friday of each session (6/28, 7/12, 7/26 and 8/9). These lunches are peanut free with a kosher option available.

The camp provides a morning and afternoon snack for all campers. Snack items include: goldfish, graham crackers, pretzels and/or saltines. Water or juice (diluted) is provided to our lower campers. Families may choose to send in an alternative snack. Intermediate, upper and senior campers should bring one or two beverages to have with snack and/or lunch. Water bottles are strongly encouraged and may be filled up throughout the day.
Please see our nut-free policy below.
Please note that our Lower Camp Division is nut-free. All lunches in this division must be free from nut products and are checked daily by staff. In our older divisions (Intermediate, Upper and Senior) nut products are allowed in lunches. Specific policies and procedures are taught to campers and staff in order to provide sensitivity and safety to all campers with allergies. Please contact the director at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
You are welcome to make friendship requests for your camper. The friend(s) must be in the same age group/grade in order for us to be able to place them together. We can only guarantee one friend, however, we can typically accomodate multiple friends. You may submit your requests on the camper questionnaire form.
