Camps at Saint Mary's have a no-phone policy in place for all campers. Because this may be the first time away from home, some campers may experience separation anxiety. The staff is dedicated to making this period of adjustment as comfortable as possible for everyone involved. The phone policy has been established for the welfare of the entire camp program. Emergency messages will be taken by the camp office or the camp director.


Homesickness may be an issue at camp, especially for those campers who are away from home for the first time. Staff members have been trained to react to homesickness with compassion and sympathy. Our counselors will help homesick campers focus on exciting camp activities, making new friends, and the fun atmosphere of the experience.
