No diving. If you argue with the lifeguard on duty about this, he/she is authorized to eject you from the pool area.
No smoking, no food, and no drinks—except drinking water in a non-glass container—is allowed inside the pool fence. You may smoke, eat, or drink outside the pool fence on the paved area between the pool and the dining hall.
No one under 15 is permitted in the pool area without a guardian; no more than 3 people under 15 with a guardian. The age limits are set by state regulations; do not ask us to make exceptions for you or your child.
Lifeguards and Pool Watch Community Service people may not watch children or act in a guardian capacity. There are no exceptions. Do not ask us to do this.
Any person who is not a member of the Camp staff found in or around the pump house will be expelled from the Gathering and from Camp property—no warnings, no refunds, period.
Non-potty-trained humans in the pool must wear rubber pants with elastic legs over cloth diapers or swim diapers; standard disposable diapers are not sufficient and not permitted.
You may swim at your own risk during hours when there is no lifeguard on duty; however, please keep the noise down after 10:00p. Sound from the pool can be heard all over camp; be considerate of the folks staying nearby. If there are noise complaints, we may close and lock the pool overnight.
The pool is closed on Sunday.
