Parents/Guardians are responsible for the actions, safety, and supervision of any members of their party under the age of 18.  Children under the age of 16 must always be accompanied by a parent/guardian or similar adult responsible for their safety and behavior.  All parties must have a responsible adult over the age of 21.  Any guests affecting the experience or safety of other guests will be asked to leave without a refund.  Guests attending with or without minors will need an adult 21 years or older to act as the responsible adult for their party.
The camp’s focus is on enjoying nature and the community of the camp.  We discourage adult beverages from being brought to camp and cannot leave cabins; current law states that a person must be 21 years of age.  If we have a children’s group in camp, NO alcohol will not be allowed on site.
