Camp Store
Campers will want spending money for snacks, drinks, sweatshirts, etc. at the camp store. Please bring this with you on the first day of camp.

Cell Phone Policy
Our campers are not allowed to have cell phones with them at all. Please leave them at home. In case of emergency, please call Fr. Elias at 914-319-8773. While we understand that you may be worried about your camper, please do not call to “check up on them.” These calls interrupt the program and the experience your camper will have at camp. Know that they are in a loving environment and if we need you for anything, we will call you right away.

What to Bring
A Bible, prayer book, pillow, pillow case, sleeping bag or sheets and blanket, bath towels, toiletries, flip flops for shower, church clothes (Khakis and a button down for boys, casual knee length skirt and a shirt with short sleeves for girls), swim suit (See “Camp St. Paul Camper Covenant” for appropriate swim wear), beach towel, sunscreen, insect repellent, CD’s for playing at dance and during free time (No Cursing or Vulgar Songs!), rain gear, and spending money for camp store.

What to Not Bring
Alcohol, tobacco products, drugs, weapons, walkman’s, mp3 players or other personal music systems, video game systems, computers, cell phones. (Note: These items will be taken by staff members if brought to camp). Harmless items, such as walkmans and gameboys, will be returned at the conclusion of camp. In the event of discovery of illegal or dangerous items, the parent(s)/guardian(s) will be notified and appropriate action will be taken.

If you have any questions, please let us know, otherwise we will see you at camp!!

CHRIST IS IN OUR MIDST!

Agape,

Fr. Elias
Director, Camp Saint Paul
