Tech-Free Zone: YMCA Caravan Directors recognize that kids need time away from technology to build friendships, explore the outside world and experience new adventures. Our YMCA Caravan is a “Tech-Free Zone” in which we ask campers not to bring cell phones, portable music or video players or video games. Caravaners can bring digital cameras, as long as they are not paired with cell phones or texting technology. In the event the caravaners need a cell phone before or after the caravan, caravan staff will provide access to a mobile phone. This number will also be available to parents at time of drop-off in case of emergencies.
