Reaching the camp during the day. Call the office number, 718–768-6419. If you need to reach the camp while it is traveling, text the cell number, 718–208-5075. Texting is preferred because we are not always in a service area and are often busy with the children and not immediately connected to the phone; e.g. when we are swimming.
