IMPORTANT Information for all Camp Fernwood Staff Members
CampInTouch is the online system that all staff will need to use often in preparing for camp this summer. It is the gateway to forms, information, due dates and making sure we know how to reach you. Instead of filling out many paper forms and returning by mail, you will fill out and submit the necessary camp forms online or via our bar-coded fax back or scan and upload system.
