We believe that a big part of the camp experience is making new friends.
- We work to balance all cabins in terms of age, hometown, experience, and other factors to ensure our campers have the well-rounded experience our families expect.
- Cabin assignments are made at the discretion of Camp Hardtner and we respectfully decline the majority of cabin mate requests.
- There will be plenty of time during the session for friends and relatives to spend with each other every day.
- By not making special assignments the campers quickly branch out and make new friends as well as grow the skills to thrive away from home – wonderful by-products of time spent at Camp Hardtner.
- Cabin assignments will not be changed on arrival day.
Camp Hardtner has long been a site for the development of personal and social identities and skills; a space for safe socialization that is free of fear of stigma while promoting self-expression. As such, Camp Hardtner is an inclusive and affirming camp. We welcome campers and staff of all of races, religions, gender identities and expressions, and orientations. Campers will be housed based on their registered gender.
