What is the difference between commuter and resident camps?

Many of our camps offer a housing option, and we denote this option as "resident." The price for resident camp includes all meals, lodging and supervision. If you choose to come to a resident camp, but opt out of staying on-campus in the residence halls, then you will want to select the "commuter" option. The camp itineraries note pick-up and drop-off times for commuter campers.
