The Camp Potlatch campsite is a beautiful retreat area and we want everyone to enjoy the stay and be comfortable. We are renting the area and the facilities are a trust, or Amanah that is being given to us. As Muslims, we are known by how we take care of the trusts that are given to us. All campers are required to take care of the facilities, treat it with respect, and avoid any damage to it.
Anyone found abusing the property will be charged the applicable damage fees and could be expelled from the camp. We hope that everyone will respect the rules stated here, however, if there are any repeated issues with a camper, we may have to send the camper home. Thank you in advance for your support!

– Keep your bed and cabin area clean at all times.
– Any spills while eating should be cleaned up immediately.
– DO NOT waste any food.
– Refrain from taking long showers, so others have adequate time for showering as well.
All participants and campers are required to observe modesty while at camp. The camp will adhere to Islamic attire at all times. More guidelines, suggestions, and recommendations will be added later based on the camp activities.
CELL PHONE USE
One of the purposes of the camp is to allow for the campers to form connections with their Muslim peers. Therefore we discourage use of cell phones during the camp, because we want our campers to “disconnect” and reconnect with each other. There is no wifi at the campsite, and cell signal is poor. A landline is available for emergency use. Campers are allowed to bring their cell phones but we urge them to limit their use.
REFUNDS & CANCELLATIONS
After the registration deadline, as stated on the poster / website, we cannot refund the registration fee unless there is a valid health reason from a physician. There are no refunds for early departures; this also applies to campers who are sent home for not abiding by the rules.
