  11. 11. Rules and Regulations Honor code regarding an alcohol policy! Campers were told they could drink only during their free time after 10 p.m. Regardless of their personal choice, they were told that their timely attendance was required and expected at all camp lessons and activities.
  12. 12. Campers were told to immediately report to the Crossing personally, or send a friend, if they were unable to attend a lesson due to illness or any other important reason. Failure to appear on time or to skip any camp activity without a legitimate excuse resulted in a warning.
  13. 13. A curfew was set at 12 am. Participants were required to be in their buildings by this time and keeping the noise level at a minimum. During counselor orientation we selected small teams of counselors and junior counselors to make rounds from 11:45 to midnight reminding participants of the curfew.

  18. 18. Camp tour The Camp Tour consists of several stations, each having a different activity or purpose. At these stations, the counselors should give an overview of the class and explain what the campers must bring or wear to that particular class (i.e. for journalism - a notebook and pen; for sports - athletic clothes and shoes, and water, etc.).
  19. 19. Camp tour The other stations should explain the purpose and expectations of the retreat, include name-games, and begin the process of team building. Participants were broken down into eight groups where a junior counselor was assigned to guide a group through the tour. The following is a list of activities that fulfill these objectives.
