Camp Lohikan’s program is designed to accommodate all of the enrollment sessions listed above. While our evening activities and special events do not repeat during the summer, we design our calendar of events, trips, intercamp games and clinics so as to equalize the fun and excitement of camp throughout the 56 day season.
Campers are assigned to cabins according to their age, grade and session enrolled. Our goal is to have cabin groups start and end their session together. Bunk requests are honored as long as the campers are entering the same grade and enrolled for the same session.
There is a price difference between the first and second half sessions in order to equalize demand for the half season session. In no way does it reflect the content of the program or the quality of the camp experience. Many families schedule vacations in August and, if the 8 week enrollment period is not a possibility, a July enrollment is the usual choice. July enrollments are also popular with campers who attend schools that start earlier in August.
We are so confident that the summer camp experience will be a positive, fun experience for children attending Camp Lohikan for the first time that we'll guarantee it. If for any reason a camper decides that camp is not for him or her and returns home, we’ll refund the camp tuition for the days the camper leaves early. We know of no other camp that offers the same.
Families enrolling 2 or more children are credited $400.00 for each additional sibling enrolled for the full season. A 6 week session, half session and a 13-14 day session enrollment of a sibling earns a $300.00, $200.00 and $100.00 credit respectively.
The canteen fund is the only mandatory expense charged in addition to the camp tuition. The canteen fund covers: (1) the camper’s snack bar allowance (2 items: 6 days a week), (2) a camp t-shirt, and (3) loyalty rewards camper program (6-year camp balnket, 5-yeaar camp jacket, 4-year camp backpack, 3 year camp t-shirt), optional visiting day trip. The canteen charge is $300 for the full season, $230 for both 6 week sessions, $140 for the first, middle, and second 4 week sessions, and $70 for each 2 week session.
Camp Lohikan's Bus & Baggage Service is optional. Bus & Baggage Service is available 4 days during the camp season: (1) June 25th, (2) July 22nd, (3) August 19th, (5) August 5th (only Manhasset, NY and Union County, NJ). We service the New York (Manhasset, NY and West Nyack, NY) and New Jersey (Union County, NJ) areas. The charge for the Bus & Baggage Service is $300.00 round trip or $150.00 one-way except the Baltimore stop. There is a 1 duffel and 1 trunk limit.
Camp Lohikan provides transportation to and from the Newark, New Jersey Airport and JFK and LaGuardia Airports in New York. The transportation from the Newark Airport (Newark, New Jersey – Liberty Airport) is $185.00 one-way. The charge is reduced to $120.00 one-way when two or more siblings travel together. Transportation from the JFK or LaGuardia Airport in New York is $235.00 one-way ($160.00 when 2 or more campers are traveling together).
All of the camp's daily activities are included in the camp's tuition except for: Extra Horseback Riding, Jet Skiing, Quads (4 wheeler ATV's) and Paintball. Horseback Riding is included in the tuition at no extra charge for 1 period (1 hour) a week. Extra Horseback Riding is available in units of 2 periods a week at the rate of $30.00 a period. Jet Skiing, Quads, and Dirt Bike Riding are scheduled in units of 2 periods a week and are charged at the rate of $20.00 a period.
