Other Camp Policies

Dress Code

Camp Selah maintains the following standard for dress code. Any article of clothing which draws undue attention, is unsafe, or is disruptive to the overall Christian camping experience that we strive to uphold will be considered inappropriate. Some examples include, but are not limited to:

Girls

  • Two piece swimsuits that expose the midriff
  • Low cut tops exposing cleavage
Girls & Boys
  • Shorts above mid-thigh length
  •  Any attire that exposes undergarments
Boys
  • Low cut sleeveless shirts exposing ribs
  • Unnecessarily tight pants
If a dress code violation occurs, the camper will be asked to change. A second violation will result in a call home to the parents/guardian. A third offense, the camper will be sent home.

Prohibited items

  • Cell Phones
  • All Electronic Devices
  • Guns, Knives, Weapons of Any Kind
  • Matches/Lighters
  • Illegal Drugs
  • Alcohol & Tobacco

lost & Found

We will hold a "Lost and Found" parade at the end of each camp session. Any remaining items will be stored through Labor Day weekend, after which items will be donated to a local charity such as Salvation Army or Goodwill. Help prevent "lost" items by labeling all of your camper's belongings.

Phone Calls Home

Camp Selah maintains a strict "no call" policy. Any situation which is deemed to warrant a call home will result in one of our staff members making a call home and speaking with the parent or guardian of the camper and the matter will be handled from there.

contacting campers

If a parent, for any reason, may need to reach their child, please call our office at 517-283-2527 and we will deliver a message. Please reserve this line for true emergencies! Parents are encouraged to send letters or email from home. Send mail c/o Camp Selah 3600 Long Lake Rd, Reading, MI 49274 or email campselah@gmail.com. Please keep in mind that mail may take 2-4 days to arrive.

visitation

For the safety and well-being of the greater camp community, we do not allow parents to visit camp except during evening chapel time 7:30pm-9:00pm and by CALLING AHEAD. We have found that despite the best of intentions, parent visits are usually disruptive to their child's and often other campers experience at camp. If parents wish to deliver mail they are permitted to do so at the camp office during meal times only--8:15am, 12:15pm, & 5:15pm.

Mid-week Pick Ups

You should make arrangements for your child to be picked up between 9-10am on the final day of camp. If you decide your camper needs to leave for ball games, family events, etc., PLEASE NOTIFY CAMP STAFF ON OR BEFORE REGISTRATION DAY! Campers will be picked up at the camp office at the time you desire. Remember that mid-week pickups disrupt the program and will affect your child's camp experience. Please consider letting your child stay at camp, it could have a deeper impact than the alternative.
