The Oakcrest Women’s Committee, in conjunction with our Presiding Priesthood Committee, is extremely concerned about camper safety when phones are brought to camp. As we have painfully witnessed in past summers phones are no longer just for making calls. We love all campers and must keep in mind the safety of all girls who come to camp. We have a responsibility to the parents of campers who expect us to not only keep their daughters physically safe but do whatever we can to prevent emotional and spiritual harm. We do not want any girl who comes to camp to be exposed to things her parents would not approve of.

Because of this, we have adopted a zero-tolerance policy for phones at camp. If a camper brings a phone to camp, she will be sent home.

Parents and campers will agree to this policy as they register online, when they sign the Signature form, and again as they are reminded at busing that phones are not allowed at Oakcrest.

As always, the ONLY exception to this policy will be a camper who needs her phone to manage her diabetes.
