In Your Room

Midwest Diocese Camp staff takes its responsibility to provide for the safety and welfare of all campers very seriously. The following procedures and the rules will help set the tone for behavior, and if they are followed accordingly, will assist in maintaining a happy camp environment for everyone. We wish every child a wonderful camp experience!

Camper Guidelines

  • Listen to all staff and be courteous and respectful at all times
  • Counselors are in each dormitory to assist you; respect and obey counselors at all times
  • Know the camp schedule and always be on time
  • Be friendly, kind, and considerate to other campers; get to know everyone and make new friends
  • Treat others with respect; say and do things to make people feel good, not to make them feel sad

Bathrooms

  • Keep bathrooms neat and tidy at all times
  • Don’t forget to flush
  • Check to make sure everything flushed; if not, flush again
  • Don’t leave toilet paper or anything else on the seat
  • If you use the last piece of toilet paper, replace it with a new roll

  • Always wash your hands with soap after using the restrooms, and remind others to do the same

Showers

  • Take a shower every day
  • Follow the shower schedule
  • Shower as quickly as possible (5 minutes should do it)

Mornings

Rooms
