Cell Phones at Summer Camp in Summer Camp Posted May 28, 2019 The leaders' guide, for the camp we will be attending, says Quote Mobile Phones are NOT allowed in camp. The use of mobile phones by Scouts in camp is strictly prohibited. Adults that need to use them are requested to use them out of sight of the Scouts and down in the parking lot area. Mobile phones that are used by Scouts will be confiscated. Mobile phones detract from the outdoor experience of Scouting and can complicate issues of homesickness. I have been told, by those who have been to the camp previously, that the camp is strict about its phone policy. I am quite happy with that.
