Communication at CampIn lieu of phone calls or text messaging, parents and family members of current campers can send up to ten emails per camper/ per week. Emails are printed at 10:30 am and delivered to campers during mail time, after lunch. This convenient way to communicate with campers is offered to parents at no extra cost. Mail will not be passed out on check-out day, so please ensure all emails are in by 10:30 am on Thursday. Email Your Camper! We also encourage our parents to send letters or care packages during the camp session. You may write letters ahead of time and leave them with camp staff at check in to be distributed throughout the week, or you can send them via standard mail. If leaving them at check-in, please put in an envelope labeled with the child’s name! If sending through the mail, please send them early in the week since our camp sessions are short. We ask that you DO NOT send food, candy or money in care packages.

Cell Phone PolicyCamp Longleaf is a cell-phone free environment. We believe that by having our campers “un-plug,” they will engage with the outside world and gain more from their camp experience. Going cell-phone free has many benefits for camp...
- Promote socialization among campers
- Remove the divide between “the haves and the have-nots” in each cabin
- Reduce stress associated with damage, loss or theft of electronics
- Reduce home sickness by focusing on camp rather than situations or people at home
- Give your children a much needed break from the world of technology
