We ask that you wear clothing that is not offensive or sexually suggestive. Under garments should not be visible. There may be additional requirements specific to your activity area such as horseback riding, athletics, aquatics etc. All men and women (campers alike) are allowed to have one modest earring in each ear. Additional body piercing, rings and large offensive tattoos are not allowed. Men must be clean-shaven and all staff members must remain tidy in appearance.
