  • Any MEDICATION you carry must be in containers bearing their prescription or, if over-the-counter medicine or vitamins, they must be in readily identifiable containers.

  • We encourage you to bring your musical instrument if you wish and your camera. We can provide safekeeping for these items or you may keep them in your room. Please identify these items so they can be returned if lost.

WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND that you leave cell phones, tablet computers, MP3 players, ear buds, etc. at home. These are five incredible days when you will have an opportunity to invest in your future without distractions. If you do bring them, you will be asked to give them to your counselor.
Phones/ electronic devices will not be used during your week stay.

DO NOT BRING FOOD! There will be plenty!

DO NOT DRIVE YOUR OWN CAR! There is no parking available for participants’ cars. You will have to make arrangements to store your car offsite and arrange transportation to and from the camp.

COME…ENJOY…LEARN…HAVE FUN…and go home wiser and happier.
