Camp Rules

All of your school rules apply here at camp, and we have some camp-specific rules too!

Safety

  • Sticks and rocks stay on the ground (unless naturalist gives you permission)
  • No gum (choking hazard and hard to remove)

  • Stay within camp boundaries: only cross bridges with an adult, do not climb on or over railings or fences.
  • No going back to your cabin alone without a chaperone

Respect Others

  • Ring bell ONLY with an Outdoor Educator’s permission. The bell means it’s time for you to go to your dismissal location.
