What NOT to bring to SigmaCamp

Electronic devices are not permitted at SigmaCamp and should be left with parents at check-in. Campers who come to camp with a phone or other electronic device will leave their electronics with SigmaStaff for safekeeping until the end of camp.

Please do NOT bring pocket knives, fireworks, gum, candy, food or valuables including electronic and handheld devices: cell phones, radios, mp3 players, cd players, laptops, etc.

Staying in touch

The best way for parents to contact SigmaCamp staff or your child is via the SigmaTelegraph (a note-delivery service, where we print deliver your messages confidentially to your child twice daily); Campers compose hand-written notes which we scan and send to you. We will also keep a blog accompanied with pictures and you can follow us on Instagram (@sigmacamp_) for regular updates as well.
