As a Christian organization, Camp Calvary maintains high standards of conduct and separation. Campers who use tobacco, alcohol or any form of illegal drugs will be discharged. Any campers who are uncooperative or non-compliant are subject to dismissal without refund.

There is swim time scheduled every day, with separate times for guys and girls.

All boating and sailing is done off the camp property at Blue Marsh Reservoir.

A health care provider will be on call as needed. Special instructions will be given at camp for those taking medications.

Items not requested within two weeks will be discarded. Requested items can be returned via U.S. mail, and shipping costs will be your responsibility.

None of our campers are allowed to have their phones during the week of camp, so you can reach them by calling our main office phone number. A staff member answers the phone from 9 AM-5 PM, and checks for messages in the evening before bedtime.

For summer camps, use the Camper Communication service from the website. 

Absolutely not, Camp Calvary is NOT a nut-free facility. (Have you met our counselors?) But nutty counselors don’t affect allergies. If that is the case, we do offer other food options for kids who have a nut sensitivity.
