Cell Phone Policy
Cell phones and texting remove staff members from performing their assigned duties to the best of their abilities. Cell phone usage, by its very nature, removes a staff member from the community that we are trying to build.
Because of our crisis management procedures, there are cell phone requirements specific to staff positions:
Section supervisors, waterfront supervisors, activity head counselors, and fox tribe leaders will carry cell phones in airplane mode.
Bus monitors will have cell phones turned on during the morning and afternoon bus routes. During the day, their cell phones will remain at headquarters with the bus bag and clipboard.
All other counselors shall not have cell phones with them on camp property.
