Talk to a Camp Parent

What could be more helpful than to hear about camp from current and past camp families?  We want to get you connected with one or more parent to provide a reference and to answer any questions you might have.  Speak with someone on the phone and get the information real time.  If you prefer email we have email references as well, no problem.

It's different speaking with a parent than a representative from camp; we understand.  We've got parents eager to take your phone call or answer your email.  Some of these parents were reluctant to send their children to camp at first and some have multiple kids at Hawkeye.  We'll try and link you up with someone that can speak to your specific situation as a prospective camp parent.

This button will take you to the Contact Page where you can request a Parent Referral.  Let us know if you prefer Phone or Email contact info and if there is anything specific (multiple children at camp etc.) so we can make the best match.

  • I just wanted to thank you...for giving me the chance to be a part of Camp Hawkeye for another year. I really had the most fun I could of imagined those days I was there. The drive home was a sad one, especially leaving camp...So thank you sooooo much.

  • He still talks about his experience in camp and this helped him start school! He was abruptly transferred to another school closer to our house in the middle of September and he was so nervous but because of his camp experience he was able to jump right in. It’s amazing how kids adapt and I have Camp Hawkeye to thank for that.

  • The 4 weeks Spent There Went Past Way To Quickly. Leaving On The Last Day Was One Of The Hardest Things Ive Ever Had To Do. All The Memories Of Everything We Did Are So Special To Me Now... There are So Many To Pick From...All The Way From Sleepovers To Campfires, Or From The Fashion Show To Free Swims, They're All Amazing.
