Q: What is the policy of electronic devices?
A: EIAC is happy to get away from the “plugged in” society that we endure on a throughout the year. At camp we have a chance to speak with each other and forget about the day-to-day grind. No electronic devices are allowed. Any such devices brought to camp will be taken to the director and given back at the end of the session.
A: On days 4 and 8 of summer camp, we will have a special allotment of time to call parents. During winter camp, we don’t have such a time since camp is only 6 days. However, if you ever need to speak to your child or check up on your child for anything, please feel free to call our director and we’ll be happy to accommodate you.
Q: Can I visit my child during camp?
A: It generally isn’t a good idea to visit your children for many different reasons. It affects the program, it distracts other children, and takes the camper away from the English Immersion experience. If however, you need to see your child, please contact one the camp directors to set up an appointment so we can choose the best time.
