Parents will be provided with Kahili’s phone number and email and will be able to reach a staff member 24/7 while your camper is at camp. If a camper brings their cell phone, we reserve the right to confiscate their cell phone should we determine it is diminishing the quality of the camp experience for the camper and/or fellow campers. All electronics (tablets, laptops, video games, etc.) besides a cell phone are prohibited at Camp Kahili.
