Snack Bar Money

Each day, our snack bar will be open in the afternoon and evening. It is a recommended that each camper have $10-$25 added to their account at registration for use throughout the week. Snack Bar accounts are paid for online through the registration as an Add-On. No cash is accepted at camp. Any unused balance can be returned to the credit card that was used to register OR you can choose to donate it to the Camp Life scholarship fund.

What not to bring

While disposable or digital cameras are welcome, we desire that Camp Life be a place for young people to retreat from their everyday routine and from the worldly distractions of today’s society. Therefore, we ask that campers leave behind all electronic devices.

  • As a rule, these items include, but are not limited to, cell phones, laptops, tablets, televisions, DVD players, iPods, iPads, or other mobile/gaming devices and video cameras. We will confiscate and hold these items, with no liability for their safety, until the end of the camp program if your child brings it to camp.
