In our experience, we have found that electronics are a distraction at camp.  If there is an issue where you need to get a hold of your camper, call our office.  If there is an issue where your camper needs to get a hold of you, our camp leadership will oversee their conversation with our office phones.  Also, we will be taking pictures all week and will post them on our website.  If you have any questions about this issue, please call our office 760-742-3400.
