Dress Code Policy

For TCL, Summer Staff & Volunteers

The goal of the LBC’s dress code is to provide a policy so that volunteers, including TCL and summer staff, dress in a manner appropriate for everyone during program events. As a Christian camp with campers who come from all sorts of religious and non-religious backgrounds, LBC desires to have a dress code policy that creates an atmosphere so campers will receive the gospel without distraction. We also want volunteers to stay safe and effective as they work.

Defining a dress code without creating loopholes and ambiguous guidelines within its terms continues to be difficult. A modest garment for one person may be immodest for another due to varying body sizes, family backgrounds, and other reasons. In order to assist parents, staff, and volunteers as they prepare for camp, these guidelines are offered to provide understanding for what is appropriate at LBC. Feel free to wear LBC apparel at any time.

Directors and Staff at LBC reserve the right to ask anyone on the camp property to change clothing that is deemed inappropriate for the camp community.
