the parent or guardian.

Boys are allowed a telephone call at mealtimes from their family on
their birthday. You may write, email, or fax your sons.
When might the
boys leave camp?
Campers have many opportunities to go out of camp, such as for athletic
events, mountain trips, canoe rips, kayak trips and rock climbing trips.
If you wish to take your sons out of camp for a few hours, please contact
the office several days in advance.
Who would be transporting the boys on trips and activities?
The boys normally travel in vans with trained drivers and certified

What safety precautions
are employed during riflery and water activities?
All rifle and waterfront staff are certified, having attended pre-camp
training clinics. Most are "veterans" who return for many

the water. Everyone wears a PFD (personal flotation device) in any
type of watercraft.
