      Send Camper Email

      Parents can send e-mails via your CampWise account, and you can obtain a link to invite friends and family to email as well. Emails are delivered to the campers daily at lunchtime. Emails received by 10am will reach your camper the same day. Campers do not have access to electronic devices, so they will not reply to e-mails.
