The Leave It at Home List
Hand-held electronic games, boom boxes, DVD players, PDAs, Ipads, laptops, cellular phones and other sophisticated electronics (including iphones). We recognize that some campers may want these for travel. They are collected upon arrival and safely stored until departure. We are working on independence with the campers, so therefore urge our parents to talk with your kids about the importance of turning in their phones. Foley has the right to confiscate cell phones not turned in honestly and reserves the right to mail the phones home to the parents.
In order to support a natural and simplistic life style please leave the following at home: Make-up, curling irons, blow dryers, hair straighteners, etc.
Fans, electric blankets, plug in lights, etc., as the outlets in the cabins can not support every camper having these items.
Animals (caged and non-caged)
Weapons (including firearms, bows & arrows, martial arts weapons, paintball markers and knives of all kind), and fireworks.
