Our goal in establishing a dress code is to ensure that all of our campers and staff are comfortable and dressed modestly. It is a very difficult task to define a dress code in absolute terms, but dress should be comfortable and appropriate for the learning environment of deepening their relationship with the Lord. Campers, staff, and visitors are required to adhere to the Camp Dress Code as adopted by the Board of Directors. Both males and females should wear clothing that follows the below guidelines:
- No undergarments, cleavage, or private areas should be visible. Individuals should be aware of how clothing fits when involved in activities to ensure the clothing does not move too much to reveal the above. Pants or shorts should not sag from the waist.
- Shorts, at a minimum, should cover half of the individual’s thigh. Dresses and skirts, at a minimum, should reach the knee. There may be no holes in clothing exposing skin above the mid-thigh.
- All clothing should have sleeves. No tank tops, spaghetti straps, or shoulder-less apparel. Shirts must cover the midriff and not be low cut in the front or back.
- Clothing should not be excessively tight. Leggings or tights can only be worn with shorts, skirts, or dresses covering to the mid-thigh.
- Clothing should not contain references to alcohol, tobacco, profanity, narcotics, or other lewd, obscene, violent, or overly distracting references.
- Swimwear should be completely covered, in accordance with the above guidelines, when coming and going to the pool. Do not go to other places in camp on the way to and from… go directly to the pool or the cabin.
If you think an outfit or specific clothing item is questionable, then we ask that you respectfully choose another item to wear.
If a staff member is concerned regarding an individual’s clothing, the goal is to address it without causing a public scene or humiliation. The preferred method is for a concerned staff member to speak with the camper’s cabin counselor to address the issue in a private setting. Any staff member can address an issue with a visitor at the camp, again preferably in a private setting. The final discretion is up to the head counselor if there is any disagreement.
