A part of Blue Lake’s philosophy, backed by 53 years of experience, centers on allowing a camper to focus -- without outside distraction -- on their own growth and self-improvement (whether artistic or personal). Therefore, Blue Lake does not permit students to use land lines or personal cell phones while at camp. Campers should plan to leave their phones and other cellular devices with parents/guardians, and families are expected to fully support this camp policy.
Communication between Camp and Parent
The camp staff will contact parents with questions or concerns as deemed necessary, and parents may call the camp to communicate with administration, staff, health lodge, or campers through the camp’s main switchboard. Please note that phone calls often cause disruption in a camper’s day (whether logistically or otherwise), and therefore staff may suggest better times within the schedule for calls to limit disruption of the camper’s experience.
