ELECTRONIC DEVICES

AstroCamp requests that electronic devices are NOT brought to camp including but not limited to following items:
Computers • iPads/Tablets • Handheld Games • Smart Watches • iPods • E-Readers/Kindles • Cell Phones

One of the best experiences children get from summer camp is the opportunity to be independent and unplug from technology. Unplugging allows campers to connect and have more meaningful experiences. If your camper is flying into camp, please have them hand their phone into their counselor upon arrival. We will store it securely for them until camp ends.

While we do not allow cell phones, communication with your child and knowing how your child is doing is very important. We encourage you to use our email system as well as send good old-fashioned letters/postcards. If you ever have any concerns, please feel free to call us.

ASTROCAMP DOES NOT ACCEPT THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE LOSS, DAMAGE OR THEFT OF SUCH DEVICES. ANY ABUSE OF THIS POLICY WILL RESULT IN CONFISCATION AND STORAGE UNTIL THE END OF THE SESSION.
