SESSION EXTENSIONS: It’s common for campers to request an extension. We’ll accept session extensions, as long as there’s space available. If your child expresses an interest in staying longer, we’ll contact you to discuss the matter. If prior to camp you anticipate your child extending his session, let us know now. A “possible" session extension is a factor in determining your camper’s cabin assignment.
TUITION RATES & DISCOUNTS ARE RETROACTIVE: In the event of a session extension, the actual session attended will be charged. For example, if the first-half session is extended 2 more weeks, the 6-week session fee is charged (not the first-half fee plus the third 2-week fee). This will result in savings to you! In addition, the 6-week early registration discount that was offered at the time you originally enrolled will be retroactively applied. This will result in savings too! In the case of siblings, the sibling credit will increase depending upon the length of the extension.
CLOTHING LIST: Our campers and staff members dress comfortably in shorts and a t-shirt. The camp's style is down-to-earth, and high-fashion is de-emphasized. Our clothing list is a general guide for articles the average child will need at camp based on a 10-day rotation. That is, the camp laundry is picked-up about once a week and returned in 2 days. For the most part, it makes no difference how long the camper is enrolled in camp. Clothing can be brought to camp in soft or hard trunks, duffel bags, and/or suitcases.

LAUNDRY SERVICE: The canteen fee includes a weekly laundering of your camper's clothing and linens. It takes two days for the laundry to be washed and returned. All clothing and gear needs to be marked for identification purposes. In addition, Cayuga offers an optional Linen Rental Service which includes blankets, sheets, and pillowcases.
