Staying in Touch with your Cadet
By: Casey Robinson on Aug 1, 2015 | Categories: General
Camden Military Academy has a pay telephone available for cadet use during free time. When your son calls home, we encourage a 0+ call. Other methods of calling home are prepaid calling cards, a “phone home” card or number, or a 1-800 service. Telephone credit cards are prohibited. Credit cards found in possession of cadets will be confiscated and returned to parents. The Academy is not responsible for any misuse of telephone credit cards or cell phones and will not act as a collection agency if cards/cellphones are misused. If parents wish to talk with their son, they should contact the cadet’s Tactical Officer and arrange a time for their son to call home. Cadets may use cell phones during their free time as designated by their tactical officers.
New cadets may not make or receive calls during the first two weeks. Parents should contact the Tactical Officer if they need to talk with their son before the time has passed. Also, new cadets may not have visitors the first three weeks.
New and returning cadets may receive mail at any time. Care packages are always welcomed by the students; few things brighten a cadet’s day more than a package from home. Cadets may, of course, consume food and beverage in their rooms; however, each cadet is required to purchase a food storage container from the Quartermaster in which to store food items.
Please use this format in addressing mail to your son at CMA:
Company (A, B, C, D, B/S)
Camden Military Academy
520 Highway One North
Camden, SC 29020
Parents are always welcome on campus. When visiting your son, please respect the academic day and study hall hours by scheduling your visits between 3:00 P.M. and 6:00 P.M. Monday through Friday; 1:00 P.M. through 6:00 P.M. on Saturday, and 10:00 A.M. through 9:45 P.M. on Sunday. If your son is restricted to campus, please do not ask that he be allowed to leave campus with you, as this would destroy the effectiveness of the restriction.
Camden Military Academy also provides many special occasions where parents are invited to participate in the events that make Camden a school with strong parental ties. Homecoming, dances, reunions, parades, and cookouts are just some of these activities.
