Camp AUPE lasts only a few days, and encourages its youth participants during this short time to develop their leadership potential, make new friends, and connect with nature and the outdoors. Your days will be full of exciting programming, including workshops, field trips, outdoor activities, and cooperative games.
AUPE strongly recommends that campers leave cell phones and other personal electronic devices at home, for several reasons:
Most importantly, using smart phones and other electronic devices distracts you from connecting with others and the outdoors, and interferes with opportunities to participate actively in life at camp.
Campers who decide to bring a device in spite of our recommendation that they be left at home are required to follow a cell phone use policy:
Smart phones and other electronic devices may only be used in your room during the half hour of quiet time scheduled immediately after lunch and immediately preceding bedtime.
In the unlikely event of an emergency at Camp, staff will contact your emergency contact. In the event of an emergency outside of Camp, please contact the Camp Coordinator through Goldeye at 403-721-2102.
