No Cell Phones

What's With the No Cell Phones?

At Camp Jamison we strongly believe and enforce our unplugged tradition! We believe that is has major benefits for our campers (and their parents!). While campers can bring their cell phones and we will secure them safely – your child will not have access to their phone during the week.

Nowadays, everything is easily accessible through our electronic devices. It is easy to become distracted and disengage ourselves from our surroundings and the people in our lives.

At Camp Jamison we know that it is extremely important to unplug from electronics and plug into real-life relationships and the once-in-a-lifetime opportunities that camp offers. We encourage all of our campers to live and be in the moment! Our campers are able to interact with one another during activities, in the dining hall, in their cabins, and during recreational games and activities. Unplugging also lets everyone enjoy the outdoors and take in the beauty and nature of our camp overall.

When kids unplug at camp, it allows them to unwind. For a week they don’t have to worry about the stresses of being connected or worry about what everyone else is doing. Instead, they can focus on building and improving their social skills. They are able to meet new friends while having fun!

For our parents who want to make sure their child is having fun – check out the Facebook group for pictures and updates from the Directors. We can’t guarantee constant pictures of your child, but we try our best to make sure every child is seen enjoying Camp Jamison.
