Letters

We strongly encourage you to send hand-written letters. Since “snail mail” takes time, please send some letters even before your daughter arrives at camp (we will add the cabin number to your letter for you).

On Opening Day, we have mail bins on the office porch so that you can leave mail for the first few days of camp. Just write your daugther’s name on the letter, drop it in the bin, and we will deliver it to her so she gets some mail those first few days of camp.

When sending letters, slease send flat standard sized envelopes only; do not put anything in with your letters. Make sure to review our Package Policy, as we do not allow packages of any kind.

Please address letters to your camper in the following way:

Camper’s Full Name, Cabin Number
Camp Greystone
21 Camp Greystone Lane
Zirconia, NC 28790

Faxes

Campers may send and receive faxes while they are in session. Please give your daughter your fax number, if you would like for her to send a fax home. Please include camper’s full name and cabin number when sending a fax.

Camp Fax: (828) 693-1562

Charges (applied to Personal Allowance): $1 to receive; $3 to send

Emails

To email your camper, you must first log in to your Greystone account. Once logged in, you may send free emails! You have the option to purchase “Camp Stamps” if you would like to add a game or stationery to your email ($1 each).

With your emails, use the CC: field to send the same message to multiple campers. Emails need to be text only (no attachments).

We print e-mails every day at 11 a.m. for after lunch delivery (except Sunday). Any emails with inappropriate content are not delivered.

Under the Online Community menu, you may create guest accounts for family, which allows them to email your daughter as well. We do not allow friends to email campers (please have them send letters). Do not give out your password to your Greystone account for anyone to email your daughter; your account is connected to your financial information.

Technology-free

When your daugther is at Greystone, we are a technology-free. Your daughter will not be able to call or email you while she is at camp. Write letters and send some emails - it is a great way to stay in touch!
