Optional Equipment for all Sessions

Get Unplugged: In an effort to help our campers get the most from the camp experience, we feel it important to provide an atmosphere where people at camp communicate face to face and where they do not communicate directly with others not at camp, where they respect the privacy of others (no digital picture-taking devices or videos with recording capabilities), where music they listen to is not offensive or damaging, and where gaming devices are not a part of their experience.
