Swimwear Guidelines & Safety rules

Boys and men are asked to wear firmly secured, non-sagging swim suits, not bikini style Speedo bottoms, nor underwear, boxer shorts or ripped or cut street shorts.

Girls and women are asked to wear modest swimwear appropriate for a family pool. Modest one-piece bathing suits are appropriate for all ages, as well as two piece suits that include ‘swim shorts’ or ‘swim skirts,’ or two-piece suits that accomplish full coverage. Most bikinis, high French-cut suits, or thongs are not considered ‘modest’ by these standards, even if worn with a cover-up when outside the pool.

Please use changing rooms for changing into swim attire (regardless of age) and wear suitable cover-ups when walking from your house to the pool area. Lifeguards exercise full authority on appropriate attire. If attire is not appropriate, residents may be asked to wear a T-shirt, cover-up or to leave the pool area. Staff members are held to the same standards as guests. A full list of rules is posted at the pool. Children under 18 must pass a swim test to go past shoulder depth.

Snacks for sale at the pool!

Snacks, sodas and packaged ice creams will be on sale at the conference center pool this summer. Be sure to pack some cash in your pool bag!

Pet and Service Animal Policy

Due to the unique nature of a “temporary community” shared by hundreds of guests at one time, Mount Hermon does not permit pets to accompany guests during their stay. Mount Hermon does comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act requirements for “service animals.” Guests and their service animal will be provided accommodations and facility access in the same manner as all guests. The qualification of a “service animal” must meet the definition given in the Americans with Disabilities Act: “any dog that is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability, including a physical, sensory, psychiatric, intellectual, or other mental disability.” Emotional Support Animals or Comfort Animals are not considered service animals under the ADA, and therefore not permitted at Mount Hermon Family Camps. A list of excellent local pet boarding services is available upon request.
