Lodging

We will do everything possible to accommodate roommate requests. Sometimes it is not possible.

Day Campers

Day campers are signed in and out by their guardian at Camp HQ at Phelps-Stokes Chapel.

Behavior

Campers are expected to adhere to our rules, and treat others, and campus property, with respect. Campers that fail to live up to this expectation will be sent home. We do not employ a “two strikes” or a “three strikes” policy; no prior warning is necessary.
