Since Camp Timbrel is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization no tax is charged on participant fees. Additionally, Camp Timbrel qualifies for One Happy Camper Scholarships and has some scholarship money available from our generous donors.

We welcome girls of all backgrounds and do not want finances to be an obstacle to attendance. Please be in touch with us regarding financial concerns or for further scholarship information.

We expect 28 girls for this first summer, ages 11 to 14 (rising 6, 7, 8 graders).

Campers will be assigned to bunks with others of the same age. In the event that there are not enough campers of one age to fill a bunk, campers may be housed in a bunk with others who are slightly older or younger.

Each bunk of seven campers will also house one counselor. In addition two directors, and one camp nurse will be onsite 24/7. All staff members are 21 and over, have lots of experience working with young people, and are cpr and/or lifeguard certified.

Delicious! Meals and snacks are vegetarian and include dairy products, eggs, and occasional fish. Our kitchen staff is happy to prepare food that meets the needs of those with additional dietary restrictions, including gluten-free, nut-free, dairy-free. 

Campers live in bunks. Each bunk has beds for up to 14 girls plus counselors.

Bathrooms are in the bunks.
