Families see Camp Cory as a very safe community that allows their children to connect with each other on a deeper level.

We’re committed to the happiness and safety of our campers and we are ready to deliver the quality experience that first-time campers require. Family satisfaction is our top priority, and we back up the quality of our program. At Camp Cory, we are so confident in our staff & program, we guarantee your child will have an amazing experience.

Camp Cory Parent Resources

Parent Resources

Being informed as parent is crucial. This is why we have everything you need in one convenient place.

How do I know when my child is ready to go to camp?

While we start taking campers at age 3 for Day Camp and age 7 for overnight camp, there is no specific age that is ideal for starting your child at camp. It is a decision that your family needs to be comfortable with based on what you are looking for out of a camp experience. We suggest calling and asking our team specific questions at 585-325-2889. We would love to help.

What happens if my child gets homesick?

Homesickness is a very natural part of the camp experience, so it is normal for campers to miss home. Our counselors focus on making sure that they are there for your child throughout the day and help them with whatever they need. We try to make sure that campers are busy in their activities so that they can fully enjoy the camp experience.

Who lives in the cabin in overnight camp?

Campers live with 8-10 other children with two counselors sleeping right in the cabin.

Can I call my child during the week to check on them?

Because of the interruption to the camp experience, we discourage calls to campers during the week. We find that in most cases, it actually makes campers homesick. However, parents are always able to speak to their children if they wish.

How do you figure out where to place my child in overnight camp?

Campers are placed in cabins by gender, age and grade level. While roommate requests are accommodated, we limit the group of friends to three and guarantee one mutual request.

Who watches my child?

Our staff of mature young professionals take the supervision of campers very seriously. All staff are put through a rigorous background screening and interview process. Nearly 80% of our staff were campers themselves. Please visit our staff page for more information about our great counselors!
