How will you stay in touch with me as a parent? Are children allowed to have cell phones?
We encourage parents to sign up for our eCamp program, where you can see pictures uploaded daily, send your kids emails, and stay connected to camp. You may also send letters to your child while they are at camp. If there is a health concern or emergency, you will be notified.

We ask that you not send your campers with cell phones. We want to create a time and space for kids to be wholly present in the camp community. Cell phones make this mission nearly impossible.
