The dorms have central air and all the cabins have window units.
IMPORTANT ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
The dress code that we have adopted is very lenient and applies to both camper and sponsor. Over the past few years, we have had some sponsors who have not followed the dress code as we expect the campers too and so this is a reminder to the sponsors before it becomes a problem. Our dress code does not cover earrings on guys or other body piercings and so I am going to appeal to the leaders to control this before we have to make this a part of our dress code. You, personally, may not have a problem with them but we have to serve a wide range of cultures just in the BMAA, and it will keep this from being a distraction and fashion statement where one does not need to be made.
Campers are required to remain in their cabins after lights are out, but there are some who want to “sneak out” at night, sometimes with the approval of the sponsor; even though it is against camp rules. Because of increasing concern for safety, both from our insurance carrier and us, we will hire security guards to be on the campgrounds at night. Those who choose to disobey this rule will be sent home immediately. We cannot allow the safety of all to be jeopardized by a few.
