Frequently Asked Questions
The dress code at Anchor Camp has been established to help our young women live modesty in their clothing so as to reflect the dignity of their bodies. Tight clothes or shorts that are very short reveal much of the intimate of a person’s body. While our campers are children and young ladies now, this attitude of modesty in a positive sense sets them on a trajectory of living modesty and respect of their own bodies and others into their future as grown women and leaders of tomorrow.

All campers and staff at Anchor Camp participate in the “Guardian Angel Program!” We do this for a couple of reasons. First to teach the fact that we all have a Guardian Angel and also what the function of a guardian angel is. And second, to encourage everyone to care for others “like a guardian angel!” The girls and staff all love being a “GA” to another person at camp and also love knowing that someone at camp is being a “GA” for them.
