Dress Standards

  • In seeking to honor Christ, encourage purity of thought and observe modesty, we require that:
  • Shirts must be modest, not low cut and not revealing skin at the waist. A practical solution is to wear t-shirts.
  • No shirts promoting alcohol or rock groups.
  • Shorts, dresses, and skirts must be within 3 inches of the top of the knee. Long shorts, capris, or pants are great.
  • Revealing clothing such as form-fitting shorts and tight shirts, yoga pants, see-through clothing, and loose-fitting muscle shirts cannot be worn alone.
  • A one-piece bathing suit or a two-piece suit covered by a non-white t-shirt can be worn for swimming.
  • Please remove body piercings except for female earrings.


All medications must be administered by our camp nurse. If your camper needs to take medication at camp, you must turn them in to the camp nurse at the registration table upon arrival. All over-the-counter and non-prescription drugs must remain in the ORIGINAL CONTAINER. All prescription medications must be in a PHARMACY-LABELED container with the camper’s name on it. Loose pills will not be accepted.
