When are care packages delivered to campers? Care packages and mail are delivered to campers daily except for the first and last days of each camp session. Care packages are not delivered during the sessions of Primary I & II since campers attend with a big camper.
How do I get my package to my camper? You can either mail your package to camp, OR drop your package off at The Camp Store after you've dropped your camper off.
Either way, labeling is everything! Make sure you write legibly and include your camper's full name, the camp session, and on which day you'd like it delivered. Mail should be sent to:
Camp McDowell, [session name], [camper full name], 105 Delong Road, Nauvoo AL 35578.
How many care packages should I send? We prefer and recommend sending only one care package per session per camper with the exception of birthdays (which might call for a little extra something).
Will you put together a care package for my camper for me? Yes! Camp Staff will put together any care packages made up of items from The Camp Store. You can do this in two ways:
Do all campers receive care packages? Sending care packages and mail is voluntary. Some campers might receive a care package or piece of mail daily, while other campers may not receive any.
Can I send care packages to a camper other than my own child? Yes. The distribution of care packages works like typical mail. Packages and mail can be sent to whomever you choose.
*We welcome care packages addressed to "For a Scholarship Camper."
Is there anything I should NOT include in a care package? Contents of care packages should stay within the policies, practices & guidelines of the camper packing list.
*Camp McDowell is open to ALL campers. Some campers attend with partial or full scholarships due to their family's financial situation. Any care packages addressed to "For a Scholarship Camper" will be distributed to scholarship campers who have not received a care package by the last day of their session's mail distribution.
