Do NOT Bring These
Because there are so many exciting things to do at Camp Carew, there are a few things that we ask campers to leave at home. If any of these things accidentally make it to camp, you can send them home with your parents at registration, or we can keep them securely in the camp office until it's time to head home.
However, if we find someone has brought a controlled substance to camp, the item will be confiscated and further action may be required.
- Screens: computers, electronic organizers, televisions, electronic games, etc.
- Music boxes: radios, CD players, iPods, etc.
- Weapons and weapon-like objects: knives, guns, water guns, fireworks, etc.
- Outside edibles: candy, snacks, food or drink from home, etc.
- Controlled substances: alcohol, illegal drugs, etc. These items will be confiscated and further action may be required.
Camp Carew is a drug- and alcohol-free environment.
