Our camp store sells treats, candy, soda, chips, ice cream, etc. We also sell souvenirs, rocks, arrowheads, small jewelry, sunglasses, shirts, hats, etc. Most items cost less than $5.00, though walking sticks and hats can cost up to $20.00.
Q: Do you have a camp nurse on-site?
Yes, we do have a nurse on-site during summer camp who can administer first aid treatment and medications while your camper is here. All medications need to be in original packaging and must be prescription or accompanied by a doctor’s note. Our nurses will not dispense vitamins or essential oils.
Q: Does your kitchen accommodate dietary restrictions?
Yes, please include that information in your camper’s registration form. Our kitchen does not serve nuts, fish, or shellfish of any kind.
Q: Can my camper call home?
To discourage homesickness and help your camper enjoy his/her time as much as possible, we work to connect campers with parents in other, more intentional and engaging ways. Calling home can sometimes cause further homesickness, so we encourage parents to write letters or send packages. Remember that these will take time to post to camp, so prepare accordingly. Additionally, parents can email campers at any time. Their counselors and staff will relay these messages every day. In the event of an emergency, parents will always be notified of any information regarding their camper(s).
Q: What is an email pack?
Parents can send their campers a special one-way message any time they want! We print emails that come in daily and deliver them to campers at our regular meetings. Only you and whoever you invite to send emails can send them to your camper, so they will remain private.
Q: Can I send mail to my camper?
Yes. Mail is delivered nightly before dinner. Remember to send your mail the week before your camper is due to arrive. Please address your camper’s mail like this:
Indian Hills Camp
Church Name (if applicable)
15763 Lyons Valley Rd.
Jamul, CA 91935
