Electronics Policy

One of the ways we provide positive experiences for our campers is by limiting electronics in our camp environment, thereby encouraging our campers to socialize through traditional camp activities. We thank you in advance, for your cooperation with and support of these policies.

Any item that makes phone calls, accesses the internet, or has screen content of any kind (games, videos, etc.) is not permitted at camp. Examples of permitted and not permitted electronics:

✓ Music / audio book player without games or video content (See suggestions below)
✓ E-Reader (Kindle, Nook, etc.) – without video or game content
✓ Disposable Camera
✓ Digital Camera
✗ Any electronic device that contains games or video content
✗ DVD Player
✗ Laptop Computer
✗ Handheld video gaming systems
✗ Video Camera
✗ Apple Watch, or any other “smart” watch
✗ iPhone or iPad
✗ iPods with game and/or video capabilities

A few audio devices that DO comply with our policy:


  1. We recognize that many digital cameras have the ability to record videos. We will ask campers and staff to refrain from taking videos inside of the cabins.
  2. Camp is not responsible for replacing electronic devices brought to camp, which may be damaged or lost.
  3. If any of the items not permitted are brought to camp, we will collect them and return them at the end of your child’s camp session.
