Family Camp

Summer camp for your family and friends

Enjoy a stay at Pemi for family camp! Focus on simple living. Spend restorative time with your family or friends and meet others on Pemi’s beautiful grounds.

Get ready for a wonderful time at Family Camp!
Here’s what you should bring.

  • Registration/reservation of cabin
  • Payment in full via credit card, debit card, or eCheck
  • Completed health questionnaire (one per family)
  • Completed waiver

The registration form has a question regarding food sensitivities, and feel free to speak with a director regarding your needs. Our chefs handle a variety of special requirements during the summer when we serve a community of 250, though please understand that Family Camp menus are prepared with the entire community in mind, and our chefs are not short-order cooks. 

As with our regular camper sessions, a substantial portion of Pemi’s expenses will be incurred prior to participants’ arrival. The following policies assure that Pemi is here to serve our campers for many summers to come.

  • Bookings canceled at least 45 days before the start of the stay will receive a full refund 
  • Bookings canceled at least 30 days before the start of the stay will receive a 50% refund
  • If a family member develops symptoms of COVID-19 prior to arrival, thank you for cancelling your reservation—we will refund your family’s payment in full
  • In the event that Family Camp is cancelled or closed while in session by mandate of local, state, or federal authorities, you may request a prorated refund for each of the days you were not able to attend. E.g., closure prior to your arrival = 100% refund; closure after 3 days of the 6-day reservation = 50% refund

"We had SO MUCH FUN! We felt so lucky to experience how magical Pemi is, and to experience some of the traditions and cultures that make Pemi, Pemi. When we got home I posted a few photos and immediately several folks reached out to say that Pemi had been in their family for years (and in some cases for generations!) "

- Happy Camper
