Students are allowed to bring and use their mobile phones. Mobile phone usage is not permitted during the workday at the project team sites. Students will be able to use their phones at lunch and during free time hours. Not every network is available to all of our project teams so having students with mobile phones from different providers can sometimes make a huge difference in the ability to communicate. 

All campers (youth and adults) must be in attendance from start to finish. Arriving late or leaving early creates complications for those we serve. Please plan to arrive for registration no earlier than 3 PM on Sunday and stay through checkout on Friday at 10 AM. Please do not attend if you are unable to meet this requirement.

It is one of the greatest parts of BK. Just ask one of our BK veterans! No one may switch to another Project Team once assigned.

Adult Counselors will assist at worksites building morale and work cooperation.
