  • Students must be accompanied by a counselor or McNally Smith faculty/staff member if leaving the residence hall and/or school premises. This includes walking back and forth from the school to the residence hall.
  • Other non-residence hall attendees of the camp are not permitted to come to the residence hall or hang out there during free time/evening activities.

Bedtime:

  • Students must return to their own rooms at 10 p.m. This provides them time to wind down, shower, call home, get ready for bed, etc.
  • Lights out is at 11 p.m. Lights must be turned off and students should be in their bed.
  • Doors are not to be opened after bed-check/lights out – except in the case of an emergency or at the counselors request.
  • If a student needs to open his/her door or leave the room for some reason other than a 911-worthy emergency, his/her first call needs to be to the counselor on duty – BEFORE leaving the room.  Supervision is then required.
  • It is important for their own safely that students do not open their doors for anyone other than counselors after lights-out.
  • Counselors tape doors at bed-check to ensure doors are not opened and check them regularly throughout the night.
