At Camp Blue Haven, every camper will have the opportunity for a safe and uplifting camping experience.
A fun-filled, spiritually charged adventure is better facilitated when campers know their boundaries. Most importantly, all campers will be treated, and in turn should treat others in a Christ-like manner.
The following rules will be included in each camper’s online packet. By attending camp, the camper and parents/guardians are agreeing that the camper will abide by these rules while at camp.
1. All electronic devices are prohibited: cell phones, electronic games, iPods, mp3 players, DVD players, tablets, iPads, etc. Any electronic devices brought to camp will be taken up and stored for the duration of the camp session.
2. Dress code: NO shorts, leggings or yoga pants (except inside cabins and in/around shower house) – All pants, capris, skirts, or dresses must cover knees and cannot be too low on hips or too tight. NO tank tops, midriff type, tight or low-cut tops, or clothing with inappropriate designs, slogans or images. A camper may be asked to change if clothing is deemed inappropriate.
3. Possession or use of alcohol, tobacco in any form, cigarettes, e-cigarettes/vaporizers, medications prescribed to another person, illegal drugs, and/or drug paraphernalia is absolutely prohibited. A zero-tolerance policy for this rule will be enforced—campers will be sent home at parent’s expense and without refund of tuition.
