Caton’s Island adheres to a strict no cell phone/electronics policy for campers. Caton’s believes that the camp experience is a way of stepping outside the rhythm and routine of everyday life into an engaging week which helps to shape the campers independence and problem solving abilities. The camp atmosphere encourages campers to step outside of their comfort zones and participate in new activities free from electronics. Cell phones may promote homesickness, hinder the camper’s ability to create friendships and allow inappropriate posting of pictures to social media sites . In adherence to this policy, campers should not bring electronic games, i-pods or cell phones to camp.
