Cell Phone and Electronics Policy
Campers are not allowed to bring cell phones or other electronics to camp (including iPods, laptops, tablets, handheld gaming devices, etc.). Electronics brought to camp will be confiscated and kept in the office until the end of the session. Counselors will return confiscated items at checkout.
Campers may not use cell phones to contact family or friends during their time at camp (see next section) or to take pictures. If your camper would like to take pictures at camp, they may bring a digital or disposable camera. Disposable cameras are also for sale in the Sundeck.
We do not allow campers to call home while at camp, in order to maintain the temporary community we establish during their camp session. When campers call home, it tends to increase homesickness among other campers as well. If the camper finds that not being able to call home is unacceptable, we will call the parents/guardians to see how they would like us to handle the situation. Since you know your child better than we do, we would like to work with you if this situation should occur.
Please do not send a cell phone with your camper. If you as a parent foresee an issue with this, please call and ask to speak with our Program Director.
We do not allow parents to visit camp except during the check-in and check-out times, with the exception of pre-approved visits for a specific purpose (such as dropping off an item). We have found that despite the best of intentions, parent visits are usually disruptive to their child’s (and often other campers’) experience at camp. If you have questions or concerns about this policy, we would be happy to speak with you.
If you do need to drop an item off for a camper, please call the office to schedule a time to do so. When you arrive, go straight to the office, located behind Evergreen Lodge.
Parents who choose to disregard this policy (i.e. show up unannounced to visit) will be asked to leave the property. For the safety and well-being of the greater camp community, campers of parents who are non-compliant may be dismissed from camp and asked to leave with their parent. If a camper is dismissed from camp due to parental non-compliance with this policy, no refund will be granted for early leave.
Nothing ruins camp faster than the camp bully. Those caught actively fighting or bullying will immediately meet with our Program Director, a call home will be made, and depending on the severity of the circumstance, may be sent home immediately. If another camper is injured as a result of the intentional actions of another person, the offending camper will go home immediately. No refund will be granted.
While actions such as taunting, teasing, using inappropriate language, behaving in inappropriate ways, etc. do not necessarily warrant a camper being sent home immediately, we WILL send campers home if a pattern of behavior arises.
For these types of situations, we have a three-strike policy:
1. The first documented incident of clearly inappropriate behavior will result in a meeting between the camper and the counselor. If a counselor has to pull a camper aside and have a private meeting about their behavior, campers can know that this was their first warning.
2. If a camper has to be talked to for a second time regarding anything along the lines of inappropriate behavior that was already dealt with once, they will have a meeting with their counselor, the Program Director, and a call home to the parents will be placed. At this stage, this is the camper’s last chance.
3. Having to be confronted for the same sort of a behavior a third time will result in dismissal from camp. This is never our goal and is always a last resort, but we as a camp have a responsibility to protect the rest of our campers. If a camper is sent home for behavioral reasons, NO REFUND WILL BE GRANTED, and he or she may be asked not to return in future years.
We do a lost and found parade at the end of each camp session. Any remaining items will be stored through October after camp ends. After October, all appropriate items are donated to a local charity. If you believe you left an item here at camp, feel free to give us a call and we will do our best to locate your items.
Campers should not wear clothing that shows their underwear, or that contains sexual innuendo or offensive language or graphics. No short shorts or skirts should be worn. Campers may be asked to change clothes if what they are wearing is deemed inappropriate for the camp setting.
For girls, a one piece swimsuit or a modest two-piece with swim top or tankini is acceptable. Boys must have shorts of some type, preferably swim trunks.
We promise to do our absolute best to protect your information and the privacy of you and your child. Under no circumstances will we distribute personal information regarding a child, their attendance at camp, or any other information without proper approval. If a parent calls and wants to know information regarding their child’s well-being or any account information we have on file, our office staff will ask a series of security questions before we distribute any information regarding a camper.
