Camps and camp directors have different views and policies as to whether kids should be allowed to bring cell phones to camp. What's YOUR opinion?
Most kids these days haven't gone a day in their lives without sending a text, using an app, or playing a video game on their cell phones.
It's a fact of life. Most kids (and their parents) SLEEP with their cell phones within arms reach. Which begs the question, should cell phones be allowed at summer camp?
Camp directors have differing opinions, and it's become a hotly debated topic within camp circles the past several years. Some camps strictly forbid cell phones. Others say, why not?
Bottom line, whatever camp you choose is sure to have a firm policy one way or the other regarding cell phone use. You (and your child) will need to comply with that policy, so if sending your to a program that allows cell phones is important to you, be sure you're clear on the camp's policy before you sign up. This way you'll avoid any potential problems later, such as your child's phone being confiscated by the camp director, or any other potential consequences that might come up as a result of not following directions.
So, how do YOU feel about cell phones at summer camp? Good idea? Bad? Leave a comment to let us know!
