    Absences: If your camper is registered but cannot attend camp for the day, please report this absence by emailing or calling the camp

    Appropriate Camp Attire: Please remember to dress your camper appropriately for camp. Play is a vital part of our programming, so we encourage you to send your child to camp in clothes that can withstand dirt or stains during the course of an activity. Also, please pack a change of clothes in a back pack un in case the camper needs a change of clothes.

    Cell Phones: Campers are NOT permitted to have cell phones at camp. Please DO NOT send them. If a cell phone does end up at camp, it will be locked in the camp office and returned to the parent at checkout.

    Personal Property: Clearwater Forest Camp and Retreat Center is not responsible for lost or stolen items. Please leave all valuables at home. Unless otherwise noted, it is not necessary to bring personal sports, fishing, or other equipment. We have provided all of that for you!
