Got a question?! We've got answers. 
Below we answered the most frequently asked questions. If you're not seeing what you're looking for, submit a question below!

  • When do I need to RSVP by?
    Today? No, really, the sooner the better. I'll be placing the t-shirt order soon and don't want you to miss out on the order.
  • Can I bring my dog?
    We've never asked if it's allowed - but we bring our furry friends along anyways. Our only ask is that they play nice with other humans and pups - growls, nips, and bites won't be tolerated.
  • What's included in the tuition fee?
    Pretty much EVERYTHING! We've booked the waterfront-view accommodations and will have space in Camper Village for you to stay. We'll be providing meals and beverages from Friday night through Sunday morning. We're arranging activities throughout the weekend, too. AND if it is your first time at Camp Weekend, we'll even buy you a camp t-shirt to welcome you into the camp community. Please venmo @Courtney-Grady $100 to cover a portion of your Camp Weekend tuition and fees.
  • Can I bring my partner, friend, coworker, bumblebff, or camp-y hinge date?
    All are welcome! Please have your guest submit their own RSVP and venmo payment for their tuition and fees. KEEP IN MIND: they will be expected to engage in get-to-know-you-games, Color Olympics, integrate with the group, and be all-in on camp traditions. If they aren't willing to dive right in, perhaps we can schedule a camp briefing call with my BFF Emily to build the hype.
  • Are there showers?
    No. This is a day camp. There are toilets and sinks - so you can choose one of the two or hop into Manchaug Pond for a soapdip. Bring your own biodegradable soap!
  • Where are we sleeping?
    Camp Blanchard is a day camp - so there aren't traditional, residential camp cabins with bunks, cots, or even sleeping pads. We typically all sleep in the waterfront-view cabin, also known as their boathouse. We sleep on the hardwood floor, so blow up mattresses, sleeping bags, or sleeping pads are encouraged. ​ Since the pandemic, some folks prefer to bring a tent. We'll have a portion of the field designated as Camper Village. Feel free to set up your private camp oasis here!
  • Will you have food for someone with [insert dietary restriction here]?
    We'll do our best! Please share any dietary restrictions in the form when you RSVP and we'll work with you on a plan to ensure you're well-fed, energized, and ready to go all-in for the Color Olympics.
  • How do I get there?
    I'll be sending out a transportation survey about two weeks before departure in order to match drivers up with riders and match riders with drivers - it will all be based on your availability and you'll likely make new friends in the hour ride. I'll connect you and it will be your responsibility to determine pick-up point and split gas costs.
  • Can I lead an activity?
    Yes! Yes! Absolutely YES! In fact, please do. What activity do you want to lead?
  • What activities do you have planned?
    So many activities to choose from! We often start the day of activities with a bit of waterfront yoga - led by Emilie Newton this year! Bring your yoga mat or a towel. At the same time, campers can play a game of basketball on the courts - historically coordinated and led by Eric Swanson. We'll all participate in Color Olympics on Saturday afternoon. This will include competitive games, relay races, and other sport-y things - come prepared with fitness clothes and running shoes. Everyone will have the opportunity to tie-dye on Saturday afternoon, after our activities, or on Sunday morning. You can tie-dye your camp shirt or bring something white from home. Saturday evening we sometimes have special musical talent joining us - bring some glowsticks and some hype. Alternatively, folks looking to sit by the campfire should plan to bring their best jokes, scary stories, songs, and skits. Stay tuned for more. Activities really depend on YOU and your supertalents. What would you like to lead?
  • Can I lead a bigfoot expedition?
    Yes, Peter.
  • What should I pack?
