Please LEAVE YOUR IPODs, CELL PHONES, CD PLAYERS, and other ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT  AT HOME OR THEY WILL BE HELD BY THE DEAN UNTIL CAMP IS OVER! Camp time is time to get away from the hectic pace of life and focus on spiritual matters and enjoy yourself with fellow campers.  Electronic media interferes and interrupts with both of those goals.


You may bring electronic equipment for playing musical instruments (which we encourage) or equipment requested or first cleared by camp leaders for use during chapel/lesson times.


Our goal is not to be oppressive, but to help you to learn to create your own fun and enjoy the fellowship of fellow campers.  You can enjoy your equipment at home 51 weeks out of the year.  This is the one week out of the year when you can enjoy the fellowship unique to camp.

SPECIAL NOTES

Camp Emmanuel is not responsible for items lost by the camper. Please mark items for identification.

A Registered Nurse is on duty. All medications MUST be turned over to the Camp Nurse.

The accompanying registration form MUST BE completed and signed by the camper, the parent/guardian and the pastor and mailed by July 2 before the camper may be admitted to the Camp Program. A camper without this completed pre-registration form WILL NOTbe permitted to stay at Camp Emmanuel.

The standards, guidelines and rules of Camp Emmanuel are not intended to be harsh or overly restrictive, but are based on spiritual principles and convictions as well as experiences of the Camp leaders in order that ALL THE CAMPERS may have the best possible Christian Camp experience.

To fully benefit from the Camp Emmanuel experience, it is expected the Camper will be in attendance for the entire week. If leaving the Camp is unavoidable, the parent or guardian must make the request to the Camp Dean.

CONSEQUENCES OF NOT COOPERATING

If a camper (1) refuses to cooperate with the Camp leadership or (2) displays an unacceptable attitude or (3) breaks the rules or (4) disregards the standards and guidelines of Camp Emmanuel, then without further warning nor "chances" the camper WILL BE SENT HOME. Camp Emmanuel MUST operate for the benefit of ALL campers and CANNOT allow one uncooperative camper to spoil camp for the rest. He/she will be sent home.

CAMP BANK

All monies brought to Camp Emmanuel MUST BE placed in the camp bank. The bank operates for the purpose of safeguarding the camper's monies from loss and too rapid spending. The bank opens daily at store times and before the evening service. HOW MUCH? $5 to $10 for treats. $10 for a Camp Emmanuel t-shirt. $20 - $25 is plenty! Plus any money they want to give as an offering. Remaining balance is refunded before the camper returns home.
