Rules and Guidelines

Please review this and share pertinent information with your child.

Medical Policy
If an emergency medical situation with a camper arises, parents or guardians will be contacted immediately. If medical attention is needed between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., the camper will be taken to the campus clinic for treatment and then to Skaggs Hospital Emergency Room if needed. If an emergency medical situation with a camper arises after 4:30 p.m., campers will be taken to Skaggs Hospital Emergency Room.

Lice Policy
All campers will be inspected for lice upon arrival at camp. If our trained personnel see any traces of lice, the child will not be admitted to camp. The child’s hair must also be free of dead or alive nits (lice eggs) and lice. If your child is not admitted for this reason, we can reconsider your child for another week of camp. They cannot return during the same week. Due to time consumption and expense, we cannot treat the child for lice at camp. If lice or nits are found once camp begins, you will be required to come and pick up your child.

General Camp Policies

  1. No cell phones, walkmans, radios, or boom boxes allowed.
  2. No phone calls to or from parents as this encourages homesickness.
  3. No electronic games, mini-computers, etc. allowed.
  4. Absolutely no jewelry.
  5. Hats allowed at camp, but not on campus.
  6. Camp Lookout is not responsible for lost or stolen items.
  7. Campers are discouraged from bringing tank tops as they cannot wear them in the cafeteria.
  8. Girls bathing suits should not show bare midriff. If swimsuits are deemed inappropriate she will be required to wear a dark t-shirt over suit (you should probably send one if suit is questionable).
  9. Campers cannot leave prior to Friday and return to camp. For example: leaving for softball game and then returning to camp.
  10. Campers are not permitted to use profane or foul language.

Contacting Camp
When camp is in session the camp director is actively involved in supervising activities and is not usually in the office. If you need to contact Lynn Shaw, Director for any reason; please leave a message at (417)-690-3385. Your call will be returned as soon as possible. The campus switchboard will have the director’s cell numbers in the event of an emergency.
