Regarding camper and parent/guardian communication:  We have a no-cellphone/social media policy at camp that imitates the same polices held at all other camps, public and private schools. Campers should leave all digital devices, apple watches, iPad and cellphones at home. If digital devices are brought to camp they will need to be collected and safely labelled and stored in the camp's office, so they are not lost, or used inappropriately. Our full length no cellphone/social media policy is on our website.

Campers and Parents/Guardians who need to check in for important matters of decision can do so during a scheduled time in the camp office letting the directors know in advance.  

Parents can email their camper at info@campsummergold.com or through camp grams on our website through your registration portal. Directors will deliver email notes, letters and messages after lunch or dinner. Parents and guardians will see what their child is doing each day on our facebook page and flickr account. Names are never included to retain privacy.

Sending packages can take three days to get to Aurora. If you want to send a package use UPS or FedEx for next day delivery.
