What Not to Bring to Camp

Items of Value

  • Campers are reminded NOT to bring items of value that are not required at camp (e.g. MP3/iPod, cell phones, and excessive amounts of money), as valuable items are at risk of being lost or stolen at camp.

Camera/Photography Policy

  • We ask that campers do not bring cameras to camp for the following reasons:

    • Pictures/videos of other campers are strictly prohibited in order to protect the privacy of other campers and staff.
    • The use of cameras during camp can be distracting to campers and take away from their camp experience.
    • Valuable items are at risk of being lost or stolen at camp.
