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 one of these things accidentally makes it to camp, you can send it home with your parents, or we can keep it securely in the office until camp ends.
- Telephones or other electronic distractions: radios, CD players, iPods, etc.
- Weapons or weapon-like objects: knives, guns, water guns, fireworks, etc.
- Outside Food: candy, snacks, or drinks from home, etc.
- Controlled substances: tobacco, alcohol, marijuana, illegal drugs, etc.
If we find a camper has brought a controlled substance to Camp Carew, the substance will be confiscated and further action may be required.
Camp Carew welcomes campers from all religious traditions.
Camp Carew is a drug- and alcohol-free environment.
