ELITEAM'S COMMUNICATION POLICY:
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.
Cell phones (and all electronics) are not permitted at overnight camps. In addition, ELITEAM does not allow campers to make or receive phone calls during the week, as we have found the nightly phone calls to be a distraction to campers and a potential source to trigger homesickness. ELITEAM is a time for your kids to "unplug" and focus on athletics and FUN!
If your child has a cell phone with them upon arrival at camp, they should hand it in to their dorm parent for the duration of camp. If it is discovered that a child secretly brought a cell phone to camp and chose not to hand it in to staff, we will ask you to come and pick up your child. We are strict about this rule and appreciate your cooperation. If you have a concern about this policy, please contact us in advance to discuss it.
Should you have an urgent message for your child during the week, or would simply like to check in with us for reassurance, please don't hesitate to call.
Lastly, we encourage all parents to follow the ELITEAM Blog that is updated daily during camp. This helps keep you connected to all of our activities and adventures during the week. The full photo gallery will be posted at the end of camp.
