Electronic devices with a camera are not permitted at camp. The ease with which pictures can be shared on social media presents a privacy concern in the bunk setting. If a camper has an interest in photography we can store his camera at camp to use outside of the bunk.
Electronic devices with the capability to play games, videos, and/or connect to the internet are not permitted to camp even if these features are disabled. These items discourage the positive interactions in the bunk that are a big part of the camp experience. The “downtimes” at camp are a great opportunity for campers to shape the strong bonds that we expect to form at camp. Campers who are “tuned out” are missing out on this. Camp offers our children a chance to enjoy a simple and uncomplicated environment where we value personal interaction, creativity and communication. We know you’d agree that less “screen time” is in the best interest of your child.
