CELL PHONE POLICY
Some of the best experiences at camp are dealing with new adult leadership and making new friends. Cell phones tend to inhibit this from happening. Cell phone use while walking through the grounds of a camp or college can be a safety hazard. Therefore, if you choose to bring a cell phone we expect it to be left in your room and to be used only in the evening – preferably for a quick call to mom and dad.
