ELECTRONIC-FREE<br />

Did you know that kids ages 5 to 10 spend an average<br />

of up to six hours on screen media daily? That is one of the<br />

reasons why the use of cell phones, cameras or other<br />

electronic devices during camp hours is prohibited.<br />

Such equipment, if present, will be asked to be put away or<br />

confiscated <strong>and</strong> returned at the end of the day. We want<br />

your children to get the most out of their time at camp.<br />

Dress for the weather <strong>and</strong> please<br />

label your camper’s belongings!<br />
