Finding the balance: smart phones at summer camp
Smart phones are a huge part of our modern lives and we need to get the right balance of usage at our summer camps. Last year it was announced that 25% of children under the age of six own smartphones and we know that a large majority of our campers own smart phones so we need to get the balance right. Unlike most summer camps in the USA, we do allow campers to bring their own smart phones to camp. To achieve a balance of communicating with other campers and still be able to stay in touch with home, we have developed and improved our ‘Mobile Phone & Electronic Devices Use Policy’ over the years.
