Are electronics allowed?

No, we do not allow campers to have electronics at camp as we feel it detracts from the Forest Lake Camp experience. We have, in most recent years, been lenient on allowing mp3 players for music listening only. Any other electronic devices found are confiscated from the campers and kept in the Camp safe until the camper’s departure, when the piece is returned.

In allowing mp3 players, we need to be very specific. The only devices allowed are those that play music only. All other multimedia devices are not allowed and will be confiscated.
