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 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

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 $100 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 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.

I just wanted to say "Thank you"...

I just wanted to say “Thank you” for another wonderful week of camp for my son. He had a great time and could not stop talking about camp the whole way home.  I am looking forward to doing the kindergarten camp next year with my daughter, if it’s still offered. She was quite bummed she couldn’t join her brother(she’s only 4) and she asked me all week when she could go to camp.

You all made such a wonderful impression on our first visit 4 years ago that we will ALWAYS return to PHOC!   Thank you also to  your wonderful staff and counselors and all the hard work they put in all summer. We are blessed to have these wonderful people touch our kids’ lives! So again, a big Thank you to you and your staff!
