General Policy Guidelines
• Campers are not permitted to use cell phones. These items of convenience can quickly become distractions at camp. There is a phone at the camp ***emergencies only please (803-274-8574)***
• Campers are not to bring their own food and drinks. Each week of camp offers ample opportunity for meals and snacks. Extra food and drinks in the cabins only invite unwanted visitors (ants, roaches, etc.) and opportunities to steal.
• Cars are only permitted in the designated areas for drop-off. Please do not drive past the Dining Hall and park among the trees. This creates a safety hazard for the campers. After drop-off on Sunday, cars must stay parked in the parking area in front of the Chapel.
• All visitors must first check-in with the camp dean. If they are staying for a meal there will be a charge of $5, if extra food is available. Visitors are generally discouraged because of the possible interruption of the camp program.
What you can do to prepare your camper:
Review the registration sheet – It outlines the items your camper should and should not bring to camp. It also describes what items are needed, and the appropriate clothes to bring.
Sidestep the separation – Do not suggest to your child that he/she can call home if he/she gets homesick. That is a statement that a child doesn’t forget. It usually just sets the child up for those feelings. The deans are not going to take time trying to convince your child to stay, although they will do everything reasonable to keep them encouraged about being involved. If the camper is not engaging in the program, then the parents will be called.

Send some encouragement – Campers love to get letters from home. If you send letters, please address it to:
