Our Policies

Camper Eligibility

Camp Mac is available to boys and girls of good character who have completed the grades as stated on the application. Because every camp term is different, we believe it’s important for you to work with us to make sure the program is right for your child’s maturity, ability, and interest. Because it is our goal to provide a remarkable experience for each and every camper, we do reserve the right to dismiss any camper who has a history of being disruptive, is unable to follow directions, will not cooperate with camp staff, or is unable to adjust to our program. We expect all of our campers and you, our parents, to follow all camp policies.

Dress Code & Hair

  • Girls’ swimsuits must have straps, and girls must have a one-piece suit for coed events
  • Girls must wear nylon-type shorts, coverups, or towels over their swimsuits when walking to and from activities
  • Girls may not wear any strapless clothing except swimsuit coverups
  • Boys may not wear earrings
  • Boys and girls may not display body piercings

Note:  Head counselors and Director have the discretion to determine appropriate hair and dress for each activity.

Swim Requirement

Because of our extensive waterfront program, every camper is required to swim unassisted at least 50 feet before attending Camp Mac.

Birthdays at Camp

Birthdays at camp are very special! Campers’ names are listed on a large poster in the Dining Hall. At dinner on their special day, they are presented with their own birthday cupcake platter to share with their cabin provided by the Camp Mac baker!

Electronics Policy

We allow music-only devices with earphones for use only in the living cabins and only if they meet the following conditions:

  • Contains no videos or games
  • Costs less than $100. Relatively inexpensive MP3 players such as iPod shuffles and iPod Nanos are allowed
  • Has no WiFi or cellular capability
  • Uses earphones or earbuds (speakers are not allowed)

Cell phones, e-readers, tablets, and any device with cellular or WiFi capabilities are not allowed. Devices that fail to meet our criteria will be taken up and returned at the end of term

Visiting Campers

You and your child will adjust to camp better without the interruption of visits. For that reason, we do not allow visits to campers during camp terms. We encourage you to meet our staff and tour the grounds on check-in day and check-out day of each term. Camp Mac is not open to the general public at any time.

Camp Tours

We love giving tours! We welcome you to call and set up a time to tour Camp Mac.
