We do not allow piercings or any such items or behavior of questionable nature. No Drugs allowed, (except that prescribed by a doctor, which is kept with the First Aid Counselor). We protect our campers from influences which we feel to be detrimental, degrading, destructive or not in keeping with Brookhill standards. Please, girls one-piece bathing suits, please boys no earrings. Absolutely no cell phones are allowed at camp. This is imperative to insure your campers’ safety as it would be impossible to monitor calls made and received at camp. We reserve the right to deny acceptance to any applicant based on the standards outlined in this application, as well as dismissal from camp should it become necessary.

BUNKHOUSE/CABIN ASSIGNMENTS

Two campers wishing to be in the same bunkhouse must give each others names in the “I prefer to be with” space provided on front of the application.

We do our best to accommodate every campers friend requests: however, due to camp availability, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to make bunkhouse assignment changes the day of registration.

HEALTH POLICY

Brookhill is a physically demanding camp. We are happy to help parents with children who have difficulty in specific areas, but it is imperative that the parents communicate the camper’s difficulties BEFORE coming to camp. *We cannot accommodate physical or mental limitations. The existence of a “limiting condition” does not necessarily exclude a child from camp; however a failure on the parents’ part to disclose a “limiting condition” prior to registration can result in automatic dismissal of the camper. No refund will be available at that time. Please consider your child’s ability to participate before applying to camp.

PLEASE NOTE, there is not a Doctor or nurse on staff. There is a First Aid counselor on site to dispense medicine, and to attend to minor injuries. We strive to provide tasty and healthy meals to your camper. However, we are unable to prepare separate meals due to allergies or preference. Thank you for understanding the difficulty of accommodating this request.

ACTIVITIES

Please help your child choose his or her 4 activities, as they will be required to take them the first day of camp. After this time they will have an opportunity to change their scheduled activities. Every conceivable effort is made to protect each camper’s health and safety through training of the staff. However, the camp assumes no responsibility for accidents, illness, or loss of life, or for loss of personal equipment by fire, theft, natural disasters, or campers’ carelessness. Brookhill is noted for its safety measures and few accidents. We have found all of the things listed here to be important to the Camper, and to us. We expect to have a great time with your child. Thank you for taking time to help your child have the most wonderful camping experience possible.
