Camp Residential Guidelines and Procedures

Campers who are delayed in returning to their residence hall by curfew must contact a Camp Counselor by phone.

  • Lock-outs: Campers should contact the Camp Counselor on call for their cluster if they are locked out of their room.

  • Report lost or stolen keys to the Camp Counselor immediately.

  • Key Return: All campers’ keys are due immediately upon checking out of her/his room. This is necessary both for reasons of security and to allow the University to prepare the room available for the next resident. Campers receive information about where and how to return keys once on campus. Failure to return the key card immediately will result in a $25 charge.

  • Visitors in Residence Halls: Campers are not permitted to have visitors in Life residence halls. Sports campers may not visit the rooms of college-age students, nor may they entertain college-age students in their rooms.

  • Overnight Leave: Campers may not be away from campus overnight.

  • Campers are responsible for the condition of their rooms and hallways, and will be held liable, individually or jointly, for damaged or missing University property. Camp Counselor Staff including Life University and visiting coaches will be notified of campers found responsible of any damaged or missing property.

  • Early arrival/late departure: Although campers should make every effort to plan their travel to Life based on their camp start and end date, procedures are in place for most camps to accommodate 1 day early arrival and 1 day late departure for those campers who are traveling from long distances and need to work around flight schedules. Please email camp director for details.
