This brings some convenience, but some new challenges.
Campers may bring cell phones to communicate with their parents.
If it becomes a problem, cell phones may be taken away.
It's encouraged that your camper leave electronics at home so they may be free of distractions to fully engage the group.
Electronics such as speakers, headphones for music, computers, and other objects, are not necessary and should stay at home.
DO NOT BRING:

♦ Fireworks or items for pranks
(If found, these items may be taken for the duration of the event.
We encourage campers to have a great experience away from technology to enjoy God's creation, new friendships, and prayer.)

(If found, these items will be taken without return and parents informed immediately.)
