Contacting Your Camper

Camper Mail

Help revive a dying art! We encourage letter-writing, are big fans of the post office, and check the mailbox daily as everyone loves getting something in the mail. Send your camper snail mail by using the below address:

Burgundy Center for Wildlife Studies
660 Margaret Sullivan Lane
Capon Bridge, WV 26711

Letters sent digitally can be emailed to From there, the digital letter will be printed and delivered to the camper as time allows. Since the campers do not have access to any computers, please go easy on the frequency of sent emails: our staff priority is to spend time with your child, not with our computer printer.

If you send overnight packages, PLEASE use UPS or USPS Express mail and waive the signature; otherwise, we may not be able to retrieve the package for several days.

Phone Calls

We do not permit the campers to use the phone except in the case of emergency, and we do not permit cell phones or other electronic devices, with the exception of books and cameras.

Please contact us at with any questions or concerns. We will respond quickly.
