Because part of the camp experience is learning independence, we strongly discourage visits during the session. While at Blue Lake, students spend their time in various scheduled and supervised activities. Participating fully in these activities, whether instructional classes, recreational activities, evening events, time with friends, or meals with cabin mates, is what makes the camp experience complete. Students have the opportunity to learn and grow as individuals, and the time away from family fosters independence in a well-structured, educational setting. If family circumstances dictate that visiting is absolutely necessary, we require that it be limited to the middle Sunday, in conjunction with our camp schedule. Visitors are limited to parents, grandparents, and other immediate family.
