Our dress standard is built on two core principles - modesty and practicality. We want to maintain a balance of both without sacrificing either. SALT campers will be representing Woodlands on a daily basis as they serve alongside our staff. Because of that, we hold SALT campers to the same dress code as our summer staff. Our dress standard for all SALT campers is as follows:
Minimum 5” inseam on all shorts
Undergarments must always be covered by outer garments (no boxer shorts or bra straps showing, including sports bras).
No clothing should be worn that promotes ideals that could be offensive or that are not consistent with the values of Woodlands (including profanity, alcohol, tobacco, drugs or other worldly ideals).
Shirts with the sides cut out are not acceptable.
Boxer style swimsuit; must fit appropriately.
Hair must be neat and professional in appearance (off the collar, off the eyebrows, no more than halfway down the ear). Sideburns must be trimmed to be no longer than the bottom of the earlobe and of consistent width on the sides from top to bottom.
Ponytails, dreadlocks, cornrows, or man-buns are not acceptable.
Guys must clean shave on opening and closing day of each week.
Spandex, yoga pants, and leggings are only acceptable if shorts are worn over them.
Modest, loose fitting tops. Tops should not expose cleavage, midriff or undergarments and should have straps at least 2" wide. Strapless tops, halter tops, and racer backs are not acceptable.
Modest, one-piece swimsuit with straps. Swimsuits with low-cut tops, high-cut sides or cutouts are not acceptable. Tankinis are acceptable, but the top and bottom MUST stay together.
