We strongly discourage cell phones during our camp stay as this is a time for spiritual growth and relationship building. The usage of cell phones can distract us from the very reason for this special week. We also understand the reassurance a cell phone offers between parent and child. Therefore, these are the stipulations concerning cell phone usage during camp:
- Cell phones will be kept with your student(s) camp counselor until recreational time and bedtime or in the event of an emergency
- If your student is seen with their phone outside those scheduled times, the phone will be confiscated
- We will not be responsible for damaged, broken, or stolen cell phones
