Cell phones are allowed at camp but students will be required to keep them in their dorms during all services and activities. We want Camp to be a distraction-free week for students, and few things distract students as much as their phones. Taking away this distraction will help students out of their regular routine and opens them up to hear from Jesus in ways they haven’t before.
Before we leave for camp, we will give you a contact number for emergencies only. All of our leaders will have cell phones so your student will have access to a phone if they need to reach you.
