Yes. We allow campers to request a roommate (SGKids Camp) or a small group (SGY Camp). We will attempt to honor these requests as best as we can, but with over 1,150 youth and 350 children to coordinate, we cannot promise that every camper will get placed with their request.
No. Since we coordinate our room assignments by grade-specific small groups, we do not allow children or students of different grades to room together.

Students who attend SGY Camp are allowed to have cell phones ONLY while riding the buses to and from Glorieta. 30 minutes prior to students arriving in Glorieta, cell phones/electronics are gathered and stored for the duration of SGY Camp, and then handed back to them when they load the buses to leave Glorieta.

If your child is attending SGY Camp in Glorieta, yes, you should send some spending money with your child so they can purchase snacks and souvenirs at the various Camp stores. If your child is attending SGKids Camp in Glen Lake, you will NOT send any cash with your child. Instead, you will add money to their Camp Store Account at the time that you register them for Camp, through our online registration system. Any unused money on your child’s SGKids Camp Store Account, left over at the end of Camp, will be donated to Glen Lake and not returned to you.

Unless there is a family and/or health emergency, we do not allow parents to contact their children while away at Camp. The main reason for this is that we want our campers to have the week free from distractions of normal life. Also, for our younger campers, homesickness is something that many of them struggle with, and having contact from their parents usually exacerbates, more than alleviates, their feelings of homesickness. We do, however, encourage parents to write their child a note (or five!) for them to open up and read while they’re away at Camp. Campers love getting to open and read mail from their parents!For children who attend SGKids Camp, you will be able to drop off your mail to them at the registration table on June 11. For students who attend SGY Camp, you can pack your letter in your student’s suitcase for them to open up at Camp.
We bring very talented photographers and videographers to both of our Camps with us. They will be posting pictures and videos to our Facebook pages daily of what the campers are doing. Like our Facebook pages to stay informed!
