At Whale Camp, we believe in tuning out of social media and into the natural world around us. This allows us as human beings to appreciate nature and the people we are with. Interpersonal connections and self awareness are important parts of growing up. Developing independence and autonomy are also other important elements of maturing. Therefore, we do not allow cell phones (except for travel day), ipads, personal computers, gameboys, and similar electronic devices. If a camper is found to have any of these devices, they will be kept in a safe location in our camp office and returned when the camper leaves for home.
