GENERAL CAMP INFORMATION

  • Swimming:  Swimming is in designated areas only where certified lifeguards are present at all times.  All elementary campers will be given a swim test by the lifeguards to ensure that everyone is safe in the water.
  • Canoeing:  Canoes and kayaks can only be used when camp staff are present.  US Coast Guard approved lifejackets must be worn at all times, regardless of swimming ability.
  • Visitor Control:  Whenever camp is in session, visitors must check-in at the office and be given a visitor’s pass which must be worn at all times unless they are with one of the camp directors.
  • Appropriate Clothing:  Campers should dress in ways that help others focus on inward values and not outward appearances.  Campers’ clothing with inappropriate language or slogans will be asked to change into something more suitable.  No tank tops for boys or girls.
  • Prohibited Items:  Firearms, other weapons, fireworks, tobacco or vaping products, alcohol or drugs and knives are not allowed at camp.
