Camp Rules

ARRIVAL TIME ON SUNDAY BETWEEN 1:00 – 3:00 P.M.

SSP’s:

We do our best to match you with an SSP who will work well with you. When you first meet your SSP, let him or her know your preferred method of communication so that you can both work well together. If you are having problems with your SSP or would like to change SSPs, please talk to the SSP Coordinators.  You may not harass your SSP at any time. Joking is okay but be sure your SSP is comfortable with joking.  SSP’s are finished at 10 PM. If your SSP wants to continue, it is their decision (totally voluntary).  If your SSP does not want to stay past 10:00 p.m., then it is your responsibility to find your own way back to your cabin.

DRESS CODE AND HYGIENE:

Please do not wear heavily scented deodorants and perfumes. For the Dance on Thursday night, many people dress in costume, bring anything to wear that you want. We want you to dress up and have fun! Smile!

Closed toe shoes and long pants are needed for many activities.

Bring enough clothes for the full week.  You may not do laundry at the camp.

Camp will not allow harassing conduct. This means behaving in a way that bothers another person. It means after the other person tells you to stop bothering them, you stop.
