CELL PHONES: We ask that if your child brings a cell phone to camp, that it be left in a bag and not on the participant. We do not allow cell phones to be used during camp or around the campers. We also want to make sure that everyone understands that Junior Counselors might be in the same camp program but might not always be placed in the exact same camp group with their friend.
Please speak to your child about NOT using their phone around campers or using Tik Tok etc. on campus.
HEALTH: At camp we encourage lots of hand washing and healthy hygiene practices. Please no sick children or campers at camp as we do our best to keep all staff and campers healthy and well.
TEAMWORK: We ask that all Junior Counselor’s be respectful of one another, communicate, use proper language around one another and campers, and be engaged, safe and involved each day. It is such an awesome experience to watch relationships grow between a camper and a Junior Counselor / Leadership role model! Junior Counselor camp and Leadership are not for all children, and we do our best to communicate with parents should this program not work for participants. Our goal is to make sure the summer is fun and rewarding for everyone!
