Regarding Gratuities

Dear Parents:

Every year parents have come to us to compliment the Hidden Pond Staff in providing their children with a "Summer to Remember."  Our staff members, by their conscious action, enrich the lives of children, assist in the development of friendships, and most significantly, develop self-confidence and self-esteem in our campers.

Toward the end of a child's stay in camp, the Office and Division Heads receive numerous inquires about gratuities for Camp Counselors, C.I.T.'s and Activity Specialists.  We pride ourselves in providing a high quality program for our campers.  Our Counselors, C.I.T.'s, and Activity Specialists are an integral part of that service.  It is against our policy for any member of our staff to solicit gratuities.  If that should happen please contact us immediately.  However, if you should desire, quality service is customarily acknowledged by a gratuity in the range of about two to four dollars per day, per counselor for each child's stay in camp.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our camp office.
