Camper Expectations, Part 2: Dress Code
The American Camping Association posted an article titled “What Parents Want to Know that Camp Counselors Should Know”. The article focuses on five major areas of camp that parents have questions about. I have been walking through each section of ACA’s post and answering the questions for Shepherd’s Fold. The first three posts go over SFR’s Staff Qualifications, Camper Health and Safety, and Communication and Technology with Campers.
Section 4, Part 2:
This is the second part of the previous post. (Read Part 1 HERE) Today’s post will discuss the Shepherd’s Fold Ranch dress code.
SFR is a ‘place in the country where people can do business with God’. It is our desire for campers and staff to have every opportunity to encounter God while here at the Ranch. For that reason, we have a modest dress code for both staff and campers. We want to lessen the number of distractions as much as possible. Shirts (and tank tops) must cover midriffs, cleavage, and bra straps, and not be exceedingly tight-fitting. Shorts, skirts, and dresses must be finger-tip length when arms are placed at their sides. We ask that all staff and campers wear one-piece swimsuits. If they don’t have a one piece swimsuit, you don’t have to go buy one! We just ask that they wear a long t-shirt (not white) over their suit. If campers do not follow the dress code, we will simply ask them to change. Again, this is only to lessen the distractions in creating an opportunity for campers to encounter the Lord while at camp.
We are happy to answer any questions you may have! Please call the office at 918.263.3622.
