Frequently Asked Questions:

What is the age range of campers in a cabin? For all camps, campers are assigned cabins by age and we strive to keep age gaps within each cabin within one year. For example, 8-9 year olds are in a cabin, 9-10 year olds are in a cabin, etc. Occasional exceptions do exist to honor cabin mate requests, but a two year age gap is the maximum permissible exception.

What if my child gets homesick? Homesickness is common and natural when a child is separated from family, but you can begin preparing your child for a positive experience before camp begins.  For more info on preventing homesickness, check out this great article on CampPage.com. In a case that is not quickly resolved, the director contacts the parent to discuss options. We are sensitive to every camper's situation and will do everything in our power to ensure that your child has an enjoyable week at camp.  

How can I send great letters to my camper? Mail is a highlight of any camper's week!  Check out some great advice for writing your camper letters here at  SummerCampHandbook.com.

You may also drop off mail during registration with the camper's name and the date you wish us to deliver the letter. Letters and emails are delivered to campers at lunch each day.                                   

What about refunds? Your $99 deposit fee is non-refundable. If you must cancel a session for any reason, written notice must be sent to the office. Notice for session changes or cancellations may be sent via email to info@phoc.org or Fax at (419) 938-3714. If a camper’s session is cancelled for any reason, the deposit is not refundable. All additional amounts paid towards a camp session will be refunded if cancellation is made at least 30 days prior to the start of the scheduled term. If a cancellation is made less than 30 days before the start of a scheduled term NO REFUNDS ARE available. In case of homesickness or dismissal from camp due to disciplinary issues refunds are not available.

What Others Are Saying

"Our ten year old son, (Ben), just returned from a week at Pleasant Hill. To better understand the situation, I need to give you a little background. (Ben), our only child, was adopted from Russia at the age of 11 months. And up until last Sunday, he had never spent a night away from us. We are a little protective to say the least. We advised Chris, his counselor, to expect a few challenges and to call us if necessary. According to our son, Chris helped him through some very rough times. Because of his patience and kindness, (Ben) now has a new level of confidence and pride in his abilities. I am so impressed with the time Chris took to calm and reassure a very homesick child, helping him to overcome his fears and make it through the week. Many would have opted for the easy way out, leaving a child with a sense of failure that they would carry with them for a long time. We are so grateful to Chris for what he has given our son and would appreciate if you could pass that on to him."
