Sending Camp Mail

Everyone loves to get mail! So, it makes sense that one of the highlights of camp is Mail Call when mail is passed out. Nowadays, hearing from home takes on a whole new significance for kids who are used to being constantly connected to their friends. At Cheley, we truly believe in the idea, “Disconnect to Really Connect.” The opportunity to unplug from cell phones and social media is one of the largest benefits of camp, yet we know you and your campers want to stay connected.

You are more than welcome to send unlimited letters to your campers; however, we suggest no more than THREE times a week. Avoid writing about how much fun the child is missing while away from home; you might stir up an unnecessary case of homesickness. Encourage your child to have fun and to make the most of his/her camp experience. A simple note to stay in touch is all that’s necessary.

Remember, you are giving your camper an incredible gift by sending them to camp! They do not need packages. Send letters, not junk. The amount of trash and work that care packages bring to camp is too much. Honestly, we would rather put this time into your camper’s experience. Put a sweet note or gift in their luggage and call it a day! That said, if you do decide to send a care package, please be sure to limit packages to ONE per camper per term and do not send food.

If you would like to email your camper, please use the Cheley Connection. We print them out every afternoon and distribute them as well at Mail Call. You will receive a Welcome Email before your camper arrives at camp with instructions to activate your Cheley Connection account. There, you can View Photos and Send Emails. If you are having trouble with the Cheley Connection, please try a different browser or use a desktop or laptop.

The following applies to ALL campers and staff. For unit, please write Lower Ski Hi, Lower Chipeta, Ski Hi, Chipeta, Haiyaha, Senior Chipeta, Boys’ Trail’s End (BTE), Girls’ Trail’s End (GTE), or Support Staff.
