Cell Phone Policy

Camp Haluwasa has a strict “no cell phone policy” for the protection and privacy of all of our campers.

Cell phones can be damaged, misplaced or lost. Their use potentially disrupts camp programs. Improper use of cell phone cameras combined with internet capability creates a serious personal privacy and liability issue for parents and campers.
Please Note: Campers that wish to speak with thier parents can request to make a phone call on the camp cell phone. Parents can call in to ask how their camper is doing at anytime durring our office hours and request the camper to call them on the camp phone. It is highly recommended to allow your camper to experience camp without multiple Parents/Guardian phone calls. We see that parents calling in to speak with their camper creates a homesick reaction and then they cause distractions (crying and cannot focus on the camp fun) and eventually they go home early and loose thier camping experience. There are no refunds for homesick campers or campers that leave early.


Camper Medications

All youth camps in the state of New Jersey must comply with strict regulations regarding the administration of medications.

All camper medications (even over-the-counter medications) must be given to the camp Medical Director upon “check-in” at camp. Any medications discovered in a camper’s possession during the session will be collected by camp personnel and parents/guardians will be called.

All medications must be provided must be in their original containers and clearly labeled for the camper. We ask that you only provide what is needed for the week. When dropping off medications, parents/guardians must give Haluwasa written and detailed instructions for administering the medications to their camper.

All unused camper medications must be picked up at the end of the week after the final program during “camper pickup.”

Haluwasa must destroy and dispose of all unclaimed medications by Monday evening following the end of the session according to state law.


Clothing & Dress

In keeping with Haluwasa’s standards of dress, we ask that parents help campers pack clothes with modesty in mind. Please exclude abbreviated, revealing, and/or tight clothing including tank and tube tops. Swimsuits should be modest one-piece bathing suits or tankinis. Please DO NOT send campers with valuable clothing or other items of value. Do not pack rock/band shirts, no foul imagery, or clothing that does not support camp Christian living values.
Haluwasa will not be responsible for damaged or lost clothing and/or other items. Upon discovery, all Lost & Found items will be placed on the porch of the Main Office for parent retrieval. Unfortunately, we cannot ship/mail items to their owners.


Camper Spending Money

Note: Please do not send cash with your camper. Prior to camp, you can add spending money to your camper’s “Bank Card” which they will use to make purchases throughout the week. This bank card can be used at each of our camp stores. Balances remaining at the end of the week will be returned to our camper’s parents during Friday pick up in cash.

Note: For overnight sessions, if you have not applied money to your camper’s bank card prior to arrival you will not be able to use our “Express Lines” during check-in.
