How can we help you?

We've tried to be thorough with the rest of our website

but, inevitably, we will have missed something. Hopefully, this page will help you with the questions to which you haven’t yet found answers. If not, please drop us a line or give us a call.

How do I know if Camp Mac is right for my child?

Over the years, we have carefully developed a program that appeals to children who are active, curious, welcome challenges and enjoy the outdoors.

Can we tour Camp Mac before we register?

Of course. We have spring tours and you are welcome to sign up for one of the weekends. If you need to tour during the week, please call us beforehand so we can try and arrange a tour. 256-362-7449.

Can I visit my child at camp?

We have found that our campers adjust to the camp lifestyle better without interruptions. Because of this, we do not allow any visits during the camp terms.

Does Camp Mac offer a payment plan?

Yes. Once you register, you will have access to your camp account any time you need to update your information or make payments. You can make payments toward your balance whenever you would like by either sending a check to camp or going online and charging an amount to your credit card on file. The Confirmation Fee is due in full on February 1st and the balance on your account is due May 1st.

Can my child request a cabin mate?

Of course! On the Camper Profile Form there is a place for you to request who your child would like to be in a cabin with. The other camper will need to request your child as well.

Does Camp Mac offer healthy food choices?

Yes. We have a fresh salad bar every day at lunch and dinner consisting of tomatoes, celery, cucumbers, carrots, lettuce, broccoli, olives, nuts, cottage cheese, etc. We also have fresh fruit at all meals.

How can we communicate with our child?

Campers love getting mail! You can send as many letters and cards as you would like and you can email your child as well. We print your emails and deliver them with the mail. You can also send 2 packages per week.

Where do campers come from?

Camp Mac has campers from all over the world. Last year we had campers from 16 U. S. states, 130 cities and 4 foreign countries.

Do you ever have returning campers?

Absolutely! In our 3 and 4 week terms, usually between 85-90 percent of our campers are returning.

Does my child need to know how to swim?

Because we offer such an extensive waterfront program, we require all our campers to swim at least 50 ft. before attending camp.

Can my child bring any electronic devices?

Camp is more fun when kids enjoy their surroundings together, so the only electronics we allow are music-only devices with earphones to be used in the cabin. If we find any devices that do not meet this criteria, they will be taken and returned at the end of the term.

Do you celebrate birthdays at camp?

YES! Birthday boys and girls are first in line at the dining hall for dinner. Our baker makes a cupcake platter that is shared with the entire cabin and everyone sings Happy Birthday! It is a special day!
