Camper Mail & Phone Use

Camper Name 
c/o Longview Camp (in the summer please include which camp - Junior Camp or Teen Camp)

Because of the limited number of phones, campers are not permitted to make calls. Parents are asked not to call their children during camp except in an emergency. Cell phone use is not permitted.

 

Dress Guidelines

Camp is an exciting place with lots of fun activities! Because of the schedule of camp, we stay active and fairly busy most of the day. Guys and girls can plan to wear knee-length shorts with loose-fitting, modest shirts throughout the day. Of course pants and jeans are fine as well. Please avoid tank tops.

For Water Activities (boating & water games)

Girls: Colored knee-length shorts and a t-shirt should be worn over swimsuits. 


Guys: Exposed undergarments are not permitted. Swimsuits should be modest, trunk-type suits.

We require all clothing to be modest and appropriate. Longview reserves the right to ask any camper to change his/her outfit if, in the estimation of the staff, the outfit does not comply with these standards. Please call our office if you have any questions.

Clothing Tips: During spring, fall, and winter camps, the weather in the area varies from warm to quite cold. Be prepared for either. For hiking, high or low ropes activities, closed-toe shoes are required.

Parents and Adult Sponsors, please note: Please mark all luggage with the camper's name. Marking clothing with the camper's name is optional.

 

Meals

All meals are included in the price of the camping program. Those on special diets must bring their own necessary supplements. A refrigerator, microwave, and toaster are available to store and prepare special diet foods. Food from a meal served at The Lodge may be set aside for a future meal.
