Being immersed in our English-speaking environment helps our international campers master their English skills quickly. Our American campers and staff embrace our international campers and are always eager to help if a fellow camper is having a problem understanding.
To further their mastery of the English language, Camp Lohikan offers international campers 3 FREE, one-hour English tutoring classes their first week in camp. Additional private or small group tutoring lessons are also available. Click here for the English Tutoring Registration form.
International campers fly into one of the airports located in New York (LaGuardia or JFK) or New Jersey (Newark Airport). A member of our staff will be there to pick up your child/children. Typically, campers will arrive the same day camp starts for all campers. For departure, a member of our staff will escort your child/children to the airport. Additionally, we have numerous families who accompany their children to the US, and bring them to one of our bus locations in the New Jersey or New York area.

Each International camper will call home on their day of arrival to assure parents of their safe travel. During their stay at camp, all campers have daily access to email. Campers can email home every day. It's part of the daily program. Campers can also receive emails. We print the emails and deliver the mail to the camper on a daily basis. Parents can also make arrangements to telephone their camper during their stay at camp.
