Q: What is Pinemere Camp’s policy on Technology?
A: Pinemere is a screen free camp! Please see the Family Guide for a list of acceptable music devices. In the meantime, here are some great reasons that we have chosen to make Pinemere a Screen-Free environment:
  • Encourage our campers to spend more time enjoying the outdoors
  • Promote socialization between campers and teach important communication skills
  • Remove the divide between the “haves” and the “have-nots” in each bunk
  • Reduce the stress associated with the damage to and theft of electronics
  • Give campers a much needed break from the world of technology
  • Allow campers to fully embrace the connections they make with other campers
  • Assure that our campers are not exposed to age-inappropriate material

A: Prescription Medications Prescribed During Camp Pinemere Camp participates in a medication Distribution Program for all medication that is to be dosed regularly at camp including daily over the counter and as needed medications. Participants who take daily meds MUST enroll in this service so that Pinemere's medical staff may distribute medication effectively throughout the season. You must also provide full information for ALL MEDICATIONS taken including over the counter and on an as-needed basis. Information regarding this service will be provided to all families prior to the camp season. All medications are distributed by our Health Center team of nurses and doctors.
