PHONE POLICY

Cell Phone Policy

Because cell phones can become a distraction from the purpose of our camp, we are asking that all campers (teens and pre-teens) leave their cell phones at home. If a parent needs to reach their son or daughter at camp, call the Camp Office numbers listed below. We appreciate your understanding.

(662) 444-8505

(225) 354-5766

Note

If a parent would feel more comfortable having their child bring a cell phone to camp for safety reasons, you must give your authorization. This authorization is included on the ONLINE REGISTRATION form. We will require that all campers get permission from a senior staff person before making a call. The purpose of this requirement is to ensure that the campers are calling a parent or guardian. Thank you for your cooperation on this policy.
