For new campers

We require a recommendation letter from a teacher for all boys new to Pemi. Our Camper Recommendation Form addresses a boy’s readiness to live in a residential community. The information provided to us by your son’s teacher assists us with cabin and counselor placement.

Once your son is enrolled

Director Danny Kerr will be in touch regarding your son’s enrollment status. Once your son is officially enrolled, we keep you informed with timely emails on topics such as forms, finances, and packing. In the meantime, this information and more can be found in the Parent section, accessed by the link at the top of the site. As always, feel free to get in touch with questions.
