Cell phones or other electronics (laptops, tablets, etc.) should not be used while you are supervising campers on campus.
You are permitted to use cell phones or other electronics in the staff lounge when you are off duty and you should store these items in a locker or in a place where campers will not have access to your device.
It is important to model appropriate use of technology for our campers. Please review the Camper Electronics policy below (this policy is shared with each camp family prior to the summer):
It is our goal to provide a positive experience for all campers. One of the ways we accomplish this is by limiting electronics in camp, thereby encouraging our campers to socialize through traditional camp activities. This policy also safeguards and protects your son(s). ANY ITEM WITH AN ON/OFF SWITCH AND DIGITAL SCREEN IS PROHIBITED.
THIS INCLUDES ANY ITEM THAT CAN MAKE PHONE CALLS, SEND TEXT MESSAGES OR EMAIL, ACCESS THE INTERNET, PLAY VIDEOS OR GAMES.
Please see below for specifics…
Cell Phones are not permitted. Part of the camp experience involves learning to develop independent living skills, which, for a number of reasons, cell phones may diminish. Cell phones found in camp will be confiscated and returned to your son when he leaves camp. If your son is traveling by plane (and by himself), and you are sending him with a phone, please complete the Cell Phone Registration Form. Once at camp, we will collect, store, and return the phone for his travel home.
*Cell Phone Registration Form*
We ask that ALL families complete the Cell Phone Registration Form – whether your son is traveling with one or not.
*Video Game Players*
Video game players such as Gameboys, Nintendo DS, and PSPs are not permitted.
We do not allow Kindles, IPads or any other forms of e-reader. Books and magazines are welcome.
Any IPod, or digital music player, that has a screen for videos, photos, games, is not allowed. If your son would like to listen to music, a book on “tape”, or for a tutoring lesson, he may use a device that is ONLY FOR AUDIO.
