Camp Rules

Respect the school staff and facilities. We are guests at the school. Occupants are responsible for the condition of their rooms. All it takes is one incident or damage to a classroom for CHWC to lose a school for the following summer. Any damages will be charged to those responsible.

The school is a SMOKE-FREE ENVIRONMENT. Smoking, use of Tobacco products, vaping and the use of Juul devices is not permitted anywhere on campus.

Teens who come to Workcamp with a boy/girl friend are asked to refrain from PDA (Public Display of Affection). For the best experience, CHWC encourages teen couples to spend time with other campers and not exclusively with each other.

Campers may possess cell phones, but they may only be used during free time, and in emergency situations. They must be completely turned off and out of site at the worksites and during morning and evening programs. This also includes using phones for: Texting, making & receiving calls, games, checking news/sports scores.

Observe the “lights out” rule. You will need plenty of rest in order to work efficiently and enjoy the many activities we have planned for you. Other participants may need more sleep, so it is important that you are quiet after “lights out.”

Do not leave the school grounds unless your adult leader grants permission. Some schools have fast food restaurants and convenience stores within walking distance of the school. It will be left to the discretion of the youth leader as to whether or not youth group members will be allowed to leave the school area. All teens must be accompanied by an adult if you leave school grounds.

Attend all programs. For your own safety, we do not want campers in their sleeping area or anywhere else during a scheduled program. Adults need to check sleeping quarters to make sure no teen campers are in the classrooms.

Campers are not allowed in pools or any bodies of water during the camp week (home base, worksites, or elsewhere).
