Camper Dress Code

We ask that all campers wear modest clothing while at camp. In instances where the appropriateness of certain clothing is in question we reserve the right to ask campers to change their attire. We expect parents to help us by making sure campers pack appropriately. Clothing should not display any offensive language/message or drug/alcohol related graphics.

Shirts must...

  • Cover the entire back (i.e., no cutout backs, no shirts that tie in back).
  • Cover the midriff area (bottom of the shirt must meet the top of the lower attire at all times).
  • Cover Undergarments and not be see-through.
  • Fit modestly so that chest area is covered.
  • Have two straps, one on each shoulder (no tube tops, halter tops or spaghetti straps). Tank top straps must be 2-4 inches wide and must completely cover undergarments.


  • Skirts, and shorts should not be excessively short. It is expected that skirts/shorts will cover mid thigh when sitting down.
  • Pants must cover undergarments at all times.


  • Girls should wear a modest, one-piece swimsuit that covers the upper chest and is not high cut (tankinis that completely cover the belly are fine).
