We would like to ban cellphones at camp; however we understand that some campers may need to bring them in case of emergency purposes. Cellphone use will be severely limited by campers and staff. If cellphone use is being abused, the cellphone will be confiscated and given back to the parent at the end of the day.

What Not To Bring
We ask that you personally check your child’s backpack each day prior to them leaving for camp to ensure that only camp appropriate items are included. No electronic games, mp3 players, CD players, trading cards, valuables or pets are allowed in camp. We provide all the necessary equipment for camp activities. The possession of alcohol, drugs and weapons are prohibited on the camp property.
