General Information


- Tennis shoes are required for many activities.
- Undergarments must always be covered by outer garments (i.e. 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).
NOTE: Our goal in developing a dress standard is to be both modest and practical. However, dress standards can often be a source of tension, especially among girl campers. In today’s society, the “less is more” mentality is displayed through low cut jeans and shorts, tight or revealing tops and short shorts. Please understand that Woodlands is committed to protecting the innocence of your child while they are in our care. With this in mind, we will ask campers who are inappropriately dressed (wearing articles of clothing not consistent with Woodlands’ dress standard) to change. We appreciate your sensitivity to this subject matter, as it is our goal to create an impactful, unforgettable camp environment that is free from distractions


- Modest length, loose fitting shorts or pants (our standard is that shorts come within 4” from the top of the knee when standing).
- Shirts with the sides cut out are not acceptable.
- Boxer style swimsuit; must fit appropriately.
NOTE: Guys, your standard for hair and facial hair is the same as our summer staff since you will be representing Woodlands on opening and closing days. The standard is as follows: 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. Long hair, ponytails, dreadlocks or controws are not acceptable. Guys must clean shave on opening and closing day of each week. 


- Modest length, loose fitting shorts or pants (our standard is that shorts come within 4” from the top of the knee when standing).
- 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.
NOTE: Girls must have natural looking hair. It does not need to be your natural hair color, but it does need to be natural in appearance, since you will be representing Woodlands on opening and closing days and we want you to look sharp, like our staff!


- Dress appropriately. Nice jeans, khakis, or dresses are acceptable. Just look sharp.


All SALT campers must leave their personal vehicles parked and unused during the entire three-week session. SALT campers may go off camp with staff but either a SALT counselor or director must be the one driving. If they are unable to drive and you need to leave camp for some reason, then you may leave camp with a second year staff member IF your SALT counselors know you are going and have granted you that permission. 


We ask that you hand in any money that you bring to the office when you arrive. This minimizes the risk of any of it getting lost or stolen. The office will put your money into your account to be used at any point in the trading post. if you need money out of your trading post account during the week, you may come to the office and request to withdraw money. If it is for the weekend, you must let the office manager or SALT director know that you need to take money out of your account before Thursday evening. 


This year, we will be having activities and trips planned for SALT on the weekends! Also, meals will be provided. You don't need to worry about bringing money for meals or transportation, but if you'd like to bring some spending money or snack money we do recommend it. 


We provide washers and dryers at no cost to you, however we do not provide laundry detergent or dryer sheets. Feel free to bring your own, as you will have time to use the washers and dryers on the weekends.

Contact Your Camper

When your camper arrives, they will be asked to turn their phone into the office during the week (just like our summer staff is required to do). They will receive it back and may use it over the weekends, but during the week you will not be able to contact them via phone. If you would like to send your camper mail, feel free! You may mail letters or packages to the following address. Please be sure to also include the following information:

 *Camper Name*
  *Week of camp*
  1242 Old Blue Creek Road,
 Cleveland, GA, 30528

  • The parent/guardian of every SALT camper must complete a medical form and submit it online before arriving at camp. You may do this for your camper by logging into our website, clicking on your campers itinerary, clicking on your campers name, and then clicking on the medical form tab under your campers name. If you need any help with the medical form, please call our office at 706.865.0853.
  • Please do not pack medication. All camper medication must be turned in to our health assistants at check-in. Only our health staff is allowed to administer medication. Our health center stocks basic over-the-counter medications (Ibuprofen, Tylenol, Benadryl, etc.) and first aid supplies. It is not necessary to send these unless your child needs them on a regular basis.
