Hikes | All campers will go on a moderate hike with their unit. Campers may choose to participate in more challenging hikes known as Above & Beyond, and Sunrise hike, weather permitting. Sunrise hike is windy and requires warm layers (hat, gloves and light coat) even in the summer. Please equip your camper accordingly.
Showers | Campers are responsible for their own personal cleanliness and hygiene. Campers will have the opportunity to shower once during their camp stay. Girls are asked to NOT share brushes, hair ties or hats while at Brighton. All campers are taught about and checked for headlice the first day of camp. Do NOT send your camper if you know of any recent exposure to lice.
Meals and snacks | All meals are served family style. Campers can choose what and how much they eat. Snacks are available between meals through their counselor, and snacks/candy are available for purchase when their unit attends the craft shack. To avoid rodents in the cabins, snacks brought by a camper must be placed in a plastic bin with her counselor.
Participation | All campers must be able to manage themselves in a group setting and not require continuous one-on-one attention from their counselor. Campers are expected to participate in all activities when able. Campers remain with their units as support if unable to participate themselves.
Overnighter | Weather permitting, all campers spend a night out under the stars. Tarps are provided, but campers need appropriate sleeping bags for warmth. Bug spray is always encouraged.
Crafts & Spending Money | Registration fees include two free crafts and a Brighton T-shirt. Campers can bring spending money for extra crafts, T-shirts, sweatshirts, candy, and other items.
Respect for others and property | Brighton has a no tolerance bullying policy. Should a camper feel teased or bullied in any way, she is encouraged to talk to her counselor who will then address the concern with all parties involved. Bullying and disrespect that is not resolved after discussion with Brighton staff will be grounds for being sent home. Parents will be contacted and asked to come pick up their camper. Brighton does not allow camp pranks or jokes on other campers or staff. Vandalism to property is grounds for dismissal from camp.
