Coverage varies depending on equipment and wireless network providers. Carolina West and Verizon have the best performance, Sprint has some coverage, and AT&T and T-Mobile have little, if any, coverage. To compensate for this, each unit is issued an radio for emergency information from camp throughout the week during the check-in process.
The camp provides free WiFi for leaders that need to stay connected. Reliable reception can be found in a majority of the common areas throughout camp, including the Administration Building, Dining Hall, Program Center, and Trading Post.
Depending on your campsite's location, it can take up to about 15 minutes. Many campsites are significantly closer. There are numerous paths around the camp that reduce the walking time to program areas and the Dining Hall.
Valuable items can be checked at the business office and picked up during regular operating hours. Alternatively, your valuables can be stored in your locked personal vehicles. Each campsite also has an ammunition box bolted to either the campsite's sign or the picnic shelter which can be locked with any standard padlock.
