Cell Phone Policy

Camp 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
Please DO NOT send your child to camp with a phone. We understand that it can be hard but this policy is in the best interest of your child and their experience. If a camper is discovered using a cell phone, it will be confiscated and kept in the camp office until pick-up.
