Camp Hebron's mission is to cultivate a sanctuary where people connect with God, nature and each other. To honor that purpose and the Anabaptist/Mennonite tradition upon which Camp Hebron was founded and remains affiliated, we ask that all guests honor Biblical standards of conduct during their stay with us.
We trust you will find your visit refreshing and enjoyable. The following guidelines are designed to maintain a safe and relaxing environment for all our guests. Please be respectful of others and treat them as you would like to be treated.
Alcohol is not permitted. Guests who violate this policy will be asked to leave and will not be refunded.
Check-In / Check-Out: Normal check-in time is 6pm and check-out time is 10am. Camp Hebron reserves the right to modify this based on usage of facilities.
Children: We are concerned for the safety of all children and ask that parents maintain responsibility for supervising their children at all times.
Conduct: Camp Hebron is a family-oriented atmosphere that purposes to honor God by maintaining a Biblical standard of conduct. All guests are asked to behave in a manor that is honoring of our Christian values.

In the event of a medical emergency, 911 emergency services will be called. Please inform the host immediately if medical services have been called so that we may assist in directing emergency personnel to the building.

Shoes are required in all dining facilities and guests are not permitted in the kitchen area. We appreciate guests not taking meals into rooms and request that food or beverages in Sylvan View and Hillside Villa rooms be kept to a minimum. Please return all camp dishes to the dining room when finished with them and take care not to leave crumbs or portions of uneaten food lying around.
Modest Attire: Use modesty in attire and behavior at all times while on camp. Men are required to wear a shirt in all public areas, except at the pool or sand volleyball courts. Females are to refrain from wearing a two-piece bathing suit, belly shirt, short shorts, or revealing clothing.
Nature and Wildlife: Please respect all wildlife. Woodland animals are untamed and can be dangerous. Feeding wildlife is prohibited. Please do not pick plants or flowers, carve wood, or break branches from live trees. We work hard to keep camp beautiful!
The natural environment may present other hazards. Snakes, mostly non-poisonous, are prevalent and black bears visit several times a year. Guests are asked to wear proper footwear and use appropriate caution when walking trails and enjoying nature.
