CJL Camp Policies
Camp Juliette Low expects all campers to abide by the following policies while at camp. Failure to adhere to these policies could result in the camper being sent home. If you have any questions, please contact the camp's office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
General Camp Rules
- Campers are not allowed to have animals, weapons, alcohol or drugs while at camp. If any of these items are found, the camper's parents will be contacted, and the camper will be sent home immediately.
- Campers are to be respectful to their fellow camper. Bullying behavior is not acceptable.
- Campers must wear socks and closed-toe, closed-heel shoes at all times, expect when within their unit.
- Campers should walk not run, expect when participating in activities on the Playing Field.
- Campers must not leave their unit for any reason without permission. Campers should use the "buddy system" when not with their unit/class. Campers must tell their counselors where they are going and why.
- Campers are encouraged and expected to maintain a high level of personal hygiene: body cleanliness, oral hygiene, proper amount of sleep, good nutritional eating habits, and daily confirmation of healthy status with the camp nurse.
- Campers are encouraged to leave electronic devices (cell phones, iPods, tablets, video games) at home. All camper cell phones must be stored in the camp safe within the office until the end of the session.
- Campers are not allowed to keep food in their tents. We ask that parents not include food within care packages. Any food sent will need to be given to the counselors to be stored within a locked box.
- Campers may only chew gum within their units.
- Campers should not litter. Trash should never be thrown on the ground; not on paths, under or around buildings or tents.
- Campers should treat their tents with care as they are their home while at camp: do not pin anything to tent walls, do not hang wet towels or clothing on the tent poles or ropes, do not write on the tent or furniture, do not spray any type of chemical (bug spray, hair spray, etc.) on the tent walls, do not use candles or other flammables within the tent, etc.
CJL will accept she/her and they/them pronouns. Those who identify themselves as using he/him pronouns are not eligible to be a camper or CIT.
At this time, as CJL has not been faced with enrolling those assigned male at birth that identify as female, CJL will continue to study this issue and gather information.
