What should I leave at home?
Televisions, laptops, and excessive amounts of cash are not allowed. Contraband items are not welcome at camp.  These include: matches, lighters, knives, firearms, alcoholic beverages, rope, razor blades, tobacco products, illegal drugs, candles, fireworks, incense, etc. If it requires a second thought about whether it belongs at camp – leave it at home! Please contact the camp director with any questions.  It's better to ask, than to be sent home for having something you shouldn’t have at camp!

We do not hesitate to contact parents, call local authorities, and/or send campers home for possession of illegal items.


Are campers allowed to have a cell phone?
Cell phones are permitted at camp. However, we caution having them at camp. Putting the cell phone away will promote communication within our community of campers and staff.  Cell phones are ONLY to be kept and used in the camper’s room, and not allowed in the main lobby of the dorm, during group activities, at the dining hall, etc.  The camp reserves the right to confiscate cell phones from campers who do not follow this policy.


What if a camper has a pre-existing injury?
Camp is a physically demanding and challenging week, and campers should be in good physical condition prior to arrival. Please notify the camp director prior to check-in if the injury occurred after the medical forms were submitted. It is very important to report any and all medical conditions a camper may have, or special situations that need to be monitored. Training can be adapted to fit specific situations provided coaches are notified in advance of camp.  However, in some cases, it is better to stay home and focus on recovery.  If a camper is unable to participate in the full camp schedule, they should not attend camp. These are handled on a case by case basis and all information is confidential. Please help us to help your camper.
