Placing Your Camper in the Right Group
In order to ensure that your camper has the best experience possible, we will work with you so that they are placed in the right group*. We take several factors into account when placing campers:
1) Age (as opposed to grade)**
Main Side (Ages 7-13) – Campers born AFTER March 30, 2007
Teen Side (Ages 13-15) – Campers born BEFORE March 30, 2007
2) Existing relationships
3) Balancing new and returning campers
4) Individual Needs
Help us find the right group* for your camper:
- SLC ensures that at least one group request will be met per camper (the group request form will be available in February).
- You will also be able to request that your camper NOT be grouped with another camper. (These requests take precedence.)
*Please Note: Groups make up 1-3 cabins and serve as the primary social unit for living, programming and meals throughout the session. SLC does not ensure cabin requests. Campers spend more time with their group than their cabin.
**Campers are grouped by age because of varying school district cut off dates for grade placement.
