We have a ASM who brought his phone to camp...
It was a little pocket phone and he only used it to call out
and the kids did not see it in use.
Kinda like the boys and the walkman - Yet another technology

I can see its use for emergencies but I really would rather
leave technology home... (I use enough of it all week!)
