ABOUT CELLPHONES: Camp Summergold has a no-cell phone use policy during camp. Cell phones that are brought to camp and checked in, will be stored in the director’s office. If a camper is found with an unchecked cell phone she will be dismissed. See “Behavior & Dismissal Policy”.
Camper families are welcome to prearrange a mid-week phone conversation with their campers by contacting the camp directors during the check in process. Please note the following cell phone numbers in your caller ID, so if the Directors need to reach you their numbers will be recognized and you will answer the phone. Director Judy Hart – 402-805-7866 and Director Rhonda Lake – 717- 572-2743.
COMMUNICATION POLICY: Please advise your camper that there are many adults on our staff who will help her if an issue arises during her camp stay. Both directors, our camp nurse, our resident mentors, our counselor manager and our counselor staff are available to help your camper - but we can't help her solve the problem unless we hear about it. Please advise your camper that she is strongly encouraged to say something if she is experiencing anything that makes her uncomfortable and we will do our best to solve the issue internally at the time of the event or we will reach out to parents/guardians.
Camp Summergold Directors agree to contact parents (by cell phone, text and email) to let them know if their camper is experiencing a challenge adjusting to or during camp. Please note the following cell phone numbers in your caller ID, so if the Directors need to reach you their numbers will be recognized and you will answer the phone.
Director Judy Hart – 402-805-7866 and Director Rhonda Lake - 717- 572-2743.
