Welcome to Taste of Perlman

We can’t wait to have you become a part of the Perlman Camp family this summer.

On this webpage, you will find important information about the Taste of Perlman weekend, including required forms, a packing list, and transportation details.

We look forward to meeting you at the end of the program on Sunday, July 24th. In the meantime, if you have any questions please contact us at (301) 231-5300.

Looking forward to seeing you soon!

The forms listed below will be required for your camper to attend the Taste of Perlman weekend. All forms and instructions are available through CampInTouch.

Each parent has a unique login and password. Contact Kelsey if you are having trouble logging in.

Health History and Consent to Treat

This form is completed online, and gives our health center team information on your child’s health history. Your doctor’s office may require that you send them a copy of this completed form when they fill out the Physician’s Exam form. Once completed, you can download a copy of your form from the Parent Portal.

Camper Profile

Help us get to know your  camper better! This form is completed online.

The questions on this profile are related to your child’s previous camp experience, family situation, physical and emotional health, personality, and interests. This information is invaluable in helping our camper care team and counselors to prepare for your child’s arrival at camp, and to ensure the best possible summer experience for your camper. 

Having prior knowledge about any of the above makes a tremendous difference in helping us to be sensitive to your child’s needs this summer. This information will only be shared with those directly involved in your child’s day-to-day care at camp. If there are any circumstances that you prefer to discuss directly rather than including on this form, please let us know.

Insurance Cards and Prescription Cards

Please scan and upload the front and back of your health insurance cards. Additionally, if you have separate prescription cards, please upload the front and back of these cards.

COVID-19 Vaccination Card

Please scan and upload the front of your child’s COVID-19 vaccination card.

COVID-19 Vaccination & Testing

All campers and staff are required to be fully vaccinated for Covid-19 by the time they arrive at camp. Pre-arrival COVID testing protocols will be shared prior to camp.

Screen-Free Technology Policy
The only electronics allowed at Perlman are certain music players, e-readers, and watches. Digital cameras are allowed as long as the only capability is for it to be used as a camera. For more information on this policy, please click here.

Here is a sneak peek at a draft of the weekend schedule. Please note that the exact times and activities may change.

TOP Schedule

Throughout the weekend we will be sharing photos with you of your child through Campminder. All Taste of Perlman families will receive access to our new Campanion app for the weekend to view photos, write emails, and keep up to date with camp news.

Campanion

We’re striving to bring parents closer to their camper’s experience, and this summer we’re using an amazing new app called Campanion to do just that. This app will be provided free of charge for our Taste of Perlman families.

The best things about it? It helps with all of your pre-camp preparations and you get fun updates and photos of your camper right on your phone. Campanion makes you feel closer to your camper’s experience than ever before.

To get started, follow these two simple steps:

  • Download the Campanion app
  • Use your CampInTouch Account email address and password to log in
  • Complete forms online and upload completed paperwork right in the app
  • Wait until your camp instructs you to upload a training photo of your child, which enables the app to send you photos of your camper over the summer
  • Ensure you have push notification enabled within your phone settings so you can receive important updates from camp all year long!
Will I be notified when the Maryland transportation arrives at camp?

Yes, we will email any families whose child comes up to camp through our provided transportation as soon as the bus arrives at camp.

Who do I call if I have a question or concern while my child is at camp?

If you have any questions or concerns during the weekend, please call our camp office at (570) 635-9200. This office is staffed everyday from 8am-8pm and our office staff will be happy to speak with you, answer any questions, and forward your call on to our camper care team as necessary.

Who are the counselors for Taste of Perlman?

We invite some of our very best staff from previous summers to join us as counselors for the Taste of Perlman weekend. These alumni spent many years as counselors and supervisors, and they can’t wait to return to camp to spend the weekend introducing your children to the magic of Perlman Camp!

Where will my child be sleeping?

Taste of Perlman campers will live in a single gender bunk for the weekend with their counselors.

Can my child extend to stay longer at camp?

Yes, if space allows your child may extend to Rookie B or 2nd Session. Please let us know if you are considering this option.
