We do our best to help each camper have the best time possible.  
The Episcopal Youth Camp has a complete manual of policies that is kept on site and available to all parents and clergy at any time.  The following behavior policies must be upheld as we live, pray and play together – and work to form a Christian community.

We know that each camper is an individual and needs to be treated as such, and we do our best to accomplish that.  And there are some issues that we know need special attention.  Whether your camper is outgoing or shy, misses you every day, or has special dietary restrictions, we will try to accommodate.  If you still have questions, or your issue wasn't covered, do not hesitate to contact our camp directors at camp@edwm.org. 

Violating Camp Rules
​Immediate dismissal will result from the following occurrences:
• The possession or use of alcohol (regardless of age) or illegal drugs or the misuse of legal drugs
• Using or possessing firearms or weapons
• Sexual misconduct with a staff member or camper

Dismissal for other disciplinary problems may also occur.  If dismissal because of a disciplinary problem occurs, transportation will be provided by or paid by the parent/guardian and any registration fees will not be reimbursed.  A copy of the incident report and the course of action will be sent to the person’s home rector or sponsoring clergy person and the Bishop.
