Dietary Needs

A significant number of guests have unique dietary needs that can be easily accommodated. Our main dining facility is completely nut-free, as is our primary camp store. Please indicate any specific camper needs on your online registration and/or notify our registrar (camp@covenantharbor.org) at least 3 weeks in advance so that we may fully accommodate your family.

Available Technology

While camp is an important time to get away from many routines of life, we understand that connection with the outside world is still important. Several common spaces around camp offer wireless internet access, and most cell phone providers offer excellent signal strength.
