Electrical Appliances

We would like to take this opportunity to remind campers and parents that items which use electricity are not encouraged at camp due to the low number of outlets and the limited power sources available to each cabin. Camp Strawderman is a rustic camp, a place away from urban and suburban life.

Parents, please note: Strawderman does provide a large fan for each cabin so campers should not bring their own individual fans.

The Camp Uniform

The camp uniform, worn on Sundays and for special occasions, which includes a pair of shorts, a polo shirt, and a sweatshirt will cost approximately $65.00. These items are to be purchased at camp during registration. In addition, campers will need to bring from home a pair of white ankle socks and a pair of ALL WHITE tennis shoes.

Cell Phones

Cell phones are permitted for the express uses of taking photographs and videos and listening to music. Cell phone calls are not allowed at Camp Strawderman. For further detail regarding our cell phone policy, click here.
