Camp is a time for children to learn to live without some of the normal comforts of life. One of those things is a mobile phone. At CH there are no televisions, Xbox, Nintendo Wii’s, Playstations or any other type of video game systems for the use of our campers. This is all by design. The goal of our staff is to help your child to focus on the most important aspect of their life and that is his/her eternal soul. Adults and children alike are distracted by so many things and, regretfully, one of those things has become the mobile (cell) phone.
When you check-in/drop-off your child, we are asking you to cooperate with our request and make sure that your camper has already surrendered his/her phone to your possession. Now, I know some of you are thinking, “I want to speak with them each night before they go to bed.” As a parent of four children, with two now in college, I completely understand this desire. However, one of the greatest battles we face during a week of camp is “homesickness.”
