You also don't get any attention from the staff and if there was a conflict between two campers, they always side with the one who's family is putting more money into this place, no matter how wrong they could be.

 11/16/09   5     5     4     5     4   2009 was my son's first summer at Camp Equinunk. All of the camps my wife and I visited had impressive facilities and a great program. What truly set apart Equinunk was the extraordinary level of child care provided by Richie, Sheryl, Adam and their counselor staff - as was clearly evident by how well they know their campers when touring us around. No other camp director (the few that actually toured us) even came close to knowing as much about their campers as Richie and Adam did. The personal level of commitment to our family and son this summer was overwhelming. The first week of camp our son certainly had is fair share of tears. Not only did his group head call every night the first week, and then a few times a week after that, Richie and Adam would frequently call. The friendships made with his bunkmates and counselors this summer are truly special and almost everyday we hear the "countdown" until next summer. Furthermore, we will be sending our 7 y/o daughter to Blue Ridge! RID: 31570

 2/2/09   5     5     5     5     5   if it was not for this camp who knows hat i would have been doing i love this place and its the only place where i fell right and i can just be my self. its a place where reality is no issue. t makes me sad that this year will be my last year as a camper because i would give anything to relive the entire exsprianse over again. if parents you are reading this, i hope you can grasp what im saying its more then just brotherhood and tradition its a paradise and a heaven for me, i could not think of any place that could compare with equinink. the friends you make hear last a lifetime you truly build character at equinunk, there was a time when this great camp was gonna close down and if it wasent for richie who gave this camp one more chance i would never have been a true equinunk man. sure you have home friends who are great but at equinunk there your brothers every one is equal and treated with respect. thats about all i can fit.yours truly Ben S us09RFSus09RF?,GF "seniors unite for equi RID: 28807

Click to report rating    12/29/08   2     4     3     2     2   If your son is a true athelete than this is not the camp for him. My son attended several summers and became bored with the same routine everyday. The level of play was not very competitive and the sports instruction was fair. The counselors are juniors in high school. These are not experienced staff at all. The counselors where not mature enough to deal with tough situations for example one boy peed on another one while he was in the shower. My son got attention from his head counselor but never got the right time of the day from Richie. When my son was unhappy we never received a phone call from Richie. That truly surprised us because the motto of the camp is that they are truly their for the kids. This is not the case. Just remember that what they are selling you is not the truth. Buyer beware!!!!

     8/24/08   1     5     1     1     1   Owners are arrogant @$$H.... who only care about the money. If you expect a your child to get extra attention, your absoulutley wrong because Richie is self centered, along with Sheryl. You are wasting time and money if you are sending your children to this camp. If you care please do your children a favor and send them elsewhere!!! RID: 26034

Click to report rating    10/18/07   2     3     3     2     1   While this camp ahas had a great run under the directtion of Kevin Daley, it appears the camp is going in a different direction. It was a well run camp but quite frankly I would be concerned in what direction they are going. The head counselor was very attentive and had the respect of the counselors. Ownership is phasing out and is very unpopular with staff. Camp has great traditions but I would question their direction with out Kevin. There are other camps in the area that have stability at the administrative level that you may want to look at. There are over 50 camps in the area. They have also raised tuition again this year and cut back another day. There are better values out there. RID: 16303

 10/2/07   5     5     4     5     5   This will be my boys 2nd and 3rd summers at Equinunk and it has been nothing short of amazing. The attention given by the owners, and also from the boys former head counselors exceeded my expectations. Of the dozens of camps visited when looking for a camp for my family, Equinunk stood out as a camp that would give exceptional care to my children and the direct involvement by the directors. Every summer has been better than the last and the dedication by the adminstration continues to impress me. If you are considering a sleepaway camp for your children you must give then a call.

Click to report rating    8/5/07   5     4     5     5     3   As a brit, I worked at this camp for 6 summers on boys side. I found a real home from home, that taught me about life, others and myself. Due to the experience that I found, I became a teacher. I am greatful to Steve and Richie for all they have given me. The staff in my day were second to none and the care that they offered was amazing. Love to all. Sibs. RID: 13633

Click to report rating    6/25/07   5     5     5     5     5   I went there, my kids went there, my son just went back as a counselor at 19, 2 years removed, to be with 5 of the 6 kids in his bunk his first year. I play golf with my counselor from 34 years ago. It is one of the few camps which becomes a special permanent part of every camper for life. Read the book "Equinunk, Tell Your Story" if you want to truly understand this very special place. RID: 12474

Click to report rating    6/11/06   4     4     4     4     4   A strong camp overall. Some cabins were getting run-down, but new ones have been built over the past few years. They consistently add new facilities and activities each year. The administration is very in touch and does a good job providing for both camper and staff needs. RID: 797
