Camp Guidelines

Student ID (Flyer Card):

Cell Phones: 

  • Cell phones may only be used at designated times and in the event of an emergency. Camp Staff reserves the right to ask you to end your phone call if not in compliance. Students are encouraged to spend their time investing in new friendships, rather than on their cell phones.  

Tobacco Products: 

  • Considering the health risk to all participants, tobacco products are only permitted in designated areas on campus of the University of Dayton. Tobacco products are NOT permitted at YMCA Camp Ernst.

Commitment to Community (C2C): 

  • Respect your fellow campers, Camp Blue Counselors, New Student Programs Leadership Team and anyone you encounter during your time as a participant of Camp Blue. Inappropriate language, racial slurs, derogatory comments, or actions will not be tolerated. 

Nametags: 

  • Make sure you wear your nametag at all times from check in on August 16 through the end of camp on August 22, it is your meal ticket at both the University of Dayton and YMCA Camp Ernst! You will not eat without it!
