Cell Phones & other web-linked devices-ESF Camp Policy

Cell phones have become a way of life, a technological convenience that has impacted all of our lives in one way or another. However, at ESF, cell phones can become a distraction and an interruption. Team members are not allowed to use them and we ask campers to follow similar guidelines. At ESF, safety, program quality and fostering positive social interactions at camp are our highest priorities. For camper safety, privacy and overall well-being, we ask that our camp families support this policy, so we can promote a healthy camp environment.

  • Campers are not permitted to bring cell phones (or any electronic/web- linked devices) to camp as we do not permit their use during the camp day.
  • We ask for your support to ensure these devices are kept at home and not brought to camp.
  • If you have an urgent message for your child, we ask that you call the camp office at (215.247.7010). We will relay any urgent information to your child immediately.
  • If a camper brings a cell phone to camp, camper will be asked to put their phone in their backpack with it powered off. Parent/guardian will be contacted.
  • If camper continues to bring a cell phone to camp, parent/guardian will be contacted and the camper’s phone will need to stay in the camp office labeled in an envelope.
  • Additional offenses will be considered acts of insubordination. Parent/guardian will be contacted to discuss next steps and actions.
  • ESF is not responsible for what happens to any devices if brought to camp. Please note, the best security for the cell phone is to leave it home.

Our campers participate in many wonderful activities at camp which require socialization, full engagement, and focus in order to get the best experience possible. Our goal is to create a safe environment, conducive to learning, and free of all distractions that may hinder the learning process and joy of camp. Thank you for your continued support and cooperation.



Optional Lunch Program
Campers may bring their lunch and drink to camp which we refrigerate, or they can participate in our lunch program for an additional cost of $40/week*. To sign up, please check the appropriate box during online enrollment.
