CAMP RULES

Dear Campers & Parents,

We are excitedly anticipating our 81st year of Conservation Camp! As always, our goals are to help each child develop skills in conservation, teamwork, leadership, sportsmanship and an awareness of the outdoors. In order for us to provide for the safety and well-being of our campers while we work to accomplish these goals, we have the following rules:

WHAT TO BRING:

Listed below are items that you should bring to camp. Please make sure all items are marked with your child’s name.

  • Sleeping bag/blankets, pillow if desired
  • Flashlight
  • Swimming trunks (boys)
  • One piece swimsuit (girls) 2 pc must be worn w/ t-shirt
  • Towels (swimming & bathing)
  • Toiletry items (shower soap, shampoo, toothbrush, etc.)
  • Clothing for 5 days
  • Insect repellent
  • Rain gear
  • Sunscreen
  • Athletic shoes
  • flip flops are ONLY to be worn to/from showers
  • Campers may also bring athletic equipment or fishing gear, but the camper must assume full responsibility for these items. The camp cannot be responsible for lost or stolen items.

DO NOT BRING THESE ITEMS:

Please do not send any items of value with your child. Any of the below items brought to camp will be confiscated and returned to parents on Friday night.

  • Video games

  1. Campers must be 9-14 years old – they must have had their 9th birthday and not yet reached their 15th.
  2. Registration forms and the $225.00 camper’s fee should be completed online at https://conservationcamp.org/camp/
    • If it is necessary to mail your registration, returned ONLY to:
C.O. Mollenhour Camp
 ATTN: Camp Registration
PO BOX 1366
Warsaw, IN 46580
  1. Camps are limited to the first 80 registrations each Camp week. We operate on a first come, first serve basis. Please get your registrations in because Camps fill up early.
  2. Payment must be made upon registration. If an organization or individual other than a parent or guardian is sponsoring a camper, a check or a letter from the sponsor with the sponsor’s name and phone number included MUST accompany the registration form.
  3. Check-in will begin at 2:30 P.M. on Sunday. Please – no early check-in’s!
  4. No camper will be admitted without a signed “Consent for Medical Treatment” form on file to be turned in at registration.
  5. The Camp Director should be informed if any child has special needs so that consideration can be made towards those needs.
  6. To contact campers, (EMERGENCY ONLY!!) – Talk/Text (260) 352-2367
  7. If there is a valid reason that a camper must leave or be visited by parents during the week, special arrangements need to be made with the Camp Director during the check-in time. Should an emergency arise during the week, please call the camp to inform the director of your needs. Separation of the child from the parent is part of the camp experience.
  8. Each camper is expected to comply with the “Bring/Do Not Bring” list above.
  9. Swimming is only allowed during specified times and under the supervision of a lifeguard. (We use the “buddy system” as an additional safety measure.)
  10. Each camper is expected to help keep the camp clean and in working order as well as cooperate with counselors, staff, and fellow campers. Damage to Camp property will be the responsibility of the camper’s parent or guardian.
  11. We will make every effort to make each camper’s stay an enjoyable one, but cooperation is very important. The Camp Director reserves the right to send a camper home at the parents’ expense if they become unmanageable.
  12. Rules for acceptance and participation in the program is the same for everyone without regard to race, color, sex, age, religion, disability or national origin. Any person who believes they have been discriminated against in any USDA-related activity may write to Secretary of Agriculture, Washington, DC 20250
  13. THE AWARDS CEREMONY AND PICK-UP WILL BE ON FRIDAY AT 6:00 P.M. SHARP! There will be no dinner served Friday evening. PLEASE BE PROMPT.
  14. Camp DVD’s will be made with pictures taken throughout the week—they are $10.00—we will mail them to you. Please pay at pick-up.
