Camp Rules

Camper Safety

First and foremost, the STAFF takes its responsibility to provide for the safety and welfare of all Campers very seriously. In fact, because it is our #1 priority, the Camp Rules listed below are the direct result of over three decades of experience in successful camp administration. Though we rarely have problems, campers who repeatedly fail to follow the rules will be sent home immediately. Please take a moment to review the Camp Rules with your camper prior to camp.

Thanks so much. Let's have fun and let's get better!
