Clinics & Day Camps:
If you child needs to bring a cell phone to camp each day, we require that it is handed in to a coach at drop-off, to be returned at the end of each day. We do not allow cell phone use during the day, unless your child has an urgent need to contact you.
Phone calls (and cell phones) are not permitted at ELITEAM, as we have found the nightly phone calls to be a distraction to campers and a source to trigger homesickness. If your child is not able to last the duration of camp without speaking to you, then he/she is not quite ready for ELITEAM. If you're "on the fence" about registering, we suggest waiting a year. Have your child "practice" their overnights, and then reevaluate for next Summer. When that time comes, think about sending them with a buddy. That can help their comfort level tremendously. Please consider this carefully. It is important to us that your child have a positive experience at ELITEAM.
