Georgia 4-H Summer Camp Guidelines for Cell Phone Use at Cloverleaf Camp

Cloverleaf Level (4th-6th Graders)

Cloverleaf level (4th-6th Grade) 4-H’ers are strongly discouraged from bringing cell phones and other electronic devices to 4-H events and camp.   Cell phones may be confiscated and returned at the end of the event if their possession or use is determined to be disruptive to camp or event activities.

Adult and Teen Leaders

To set the best example, adult and teen leaders should limit their use of cell phones – particularly in the presence of participants or campers – to legitimate business purposes.

Personal Items of Value and Cell Phones: 

4-H’ers are to leave radios, computers, electronic devices, fit bits, valuable watches, and video games at home unless authorized by and used under direct supervision of the member’s leader.  4-H’ers are discouraged from bringing cell phones to camp and events. 4-H’ers should not use cell phones after lights out.   No programs are to be disturbed or interrupted by use of personal electronic equipment.   4-H’ers are not allowed to bring skates, roller blades, bicycles, laser lights or other personal items that would make safety an issue.  4-H’ers are discouraged from bringing excessive amounts of money to 4-H events.   Georgia 4-H and the 4-H Centers assume no responsibility for lost, stolen or damaged items of value including cell phones or money that are brought to 4-H activities.


Illness Policy:

If your child arrives at a 4-H event/activity with an untreated contagious illness or is diagnosed at the event with a contagious illness, you will be asked to pick them up immediately.  You will also be contacted if the child has a fever to determine the course of action.  Contagious illnesses could include, but are not limited to: head lice, pink eye, mononucleosis, strep throat, flu, or ring worm.
