General Information for Workcrew Staff and Parents/Guardians

Arrival at Camp

You need to be at camp at 5 PM each opening day of camp that you are scheduled to work. Please report to your Workcrew Chief upon arrival at camp. You do not need to wait in the registration line to report in. You will find them either in Workcrew quarters or the kitchen/dining room area. If you are riding the bus, report to Workcrew chiefs as soon as you arrive. Workcrew Members are not allowed on camp grounds until 5 PM.

End of Camp

You are dismissed from your Workcrew responsibilities on Saturday morning when your Workcrew chief dismisses you. Please do not leave personal belongings over the weekend. Generally, you should be done by 10:00 AM on Saturday. Workcrew Members are not allowed on camp grounds after being dismissed on Saturday.

Finances

If you are scheduled for 3 weeks of working, you will receive $294 towards whatever camp you want to attend. If working less than 3 weeks, camp discount will be pro-rated ($98 discount per week worked). Workcrew discount is not transferable to siblings or a different year. Discount does not count towards bus fee.

Bus Transportation

A bus makes a trip to camp from Anchorage on the first day of each camp and returning to Anchorage on the last day of each camp. For each week of work or coming as a camper there will be bus fees if riding the bus.

Round-Trip Bus Ride: $60 One-Way Bus Ride: $35

Please call or email the office to be added to or taken off of the bus list. Please notify as soon as possible of any changes in transportation. Payments can be made over the phone or sent to the office.
