Camp Conduct

We want your camp experience to be a fun, safe experience.  In order to ensure this we ask that all campers obey the following rules:
  • All campers and staff are expected to conduct themselves in an appropriate manner for a Christian camp at all times.
  • The camp schedule is to be followed by everyone at all times.  You must have permission from the camp manager, the nurse, or the dean to be absent from class or other activities. The dean or the camp manager MUST be informed before any camper or staff leaves the camp grounds.
  • You are responsible for your own belongings. We HIGHLY encourage you to mark all belongings you bring to camp.
  • The camp manager and dean have the right and responsibility to dismiss campers (without refund) for undesirable conduct or attitudes.
  • Rules for acceptance and participation in camp programs are the same for all, regardless of race, creed, color, or handicap.
  • Absolutely no vandalism. Example: Rolls of toilet paper flushed in commodes; breaking glass in windows/doors; destroying screens in windows/doors.   
    Penalty: One warning – expulsion. The cost to repair and/or replace damaged property will be the responsibility of the person causing damage.
  • No profanity (curse words); no abusive speech/language; no fighting.   
    Penalty: One warning – expulsion.
  • Absolutely no tobacco products, alcoholic beverages, or drugs (except for prescription medications which are to be left with the camp nurse).   
    Penalty: Expulsion.
  • No fireworks, smoke devices, or flammable materials.   
    Penalty: Expulsion.
  • No electronic devices. This includes but is not limited to radios, cassette tape/CD players, I-pods, GameBoys, tablets or laptops.    
    Penalty: Electronic devices will be confiscated until the end of the camp week and then returned to the camper.
  • No cell phones.  No elementary through middle school campers may have cell phones.  Exceptions include:
    •  
      Campers with medical needs.
    •  
      Music & Drama may use their phones while on tour.
    •  
      Junior Counselor (JC) cell phone use will be determined by the dean of each week.
  • Respectfulness of staff and other campers is a must. Campers should be respectful of campers and staff, and staff should be respectful of campers.
    Penalty: One warning – expulsion.
  • Absolutely no water guns.
    Penalty: Water guns will be confiscated until the end of the camp week. 
    **Please note that some Deans may request that campers bring water guns during a specific week of camp. In this situation, all water guns must be turned in at the registration table on the day of registration.
  • Please do not send aerosol spray cans with First Chance or Junior Campers.
    **Again, there may be a situation where the Dean has requested that campers bring a can of shaving cream during a specific week of camp. In this situation, all cans of shaving cream must be turned in at the registration table on the day of registration.
