Dress Code

The intent of the M3 Week dress code is to provide an equitable dress code for all campers that will encourage modesty above legalism. Parents and Student Leaders are urged to see that only clothing which meets the policies and regulations of Highland Lakes, Zephyr, Glorieta, and M3 Week is brought to camp. Campers may be asked to change their attire if an adult, campground staff or M3 staff feels their dress is inappropriate.

Guests are expected to reflect a Christian example by their dress. Student leaders and adult sponsors are responsible for the clothing and appearance of the youth and adults attending camp with their group. Attire for the worship services is casual. Modest skirts, dresses, shorts and jeans are acceptable. Immodest, tight, low cut or see though tops, tank tops, spaghetti strap tops, distasteful or inappropriate designs or messages, cheer shorts, short shorts and other extreme clothes are not acceptable at any time.

Shorts must be longer than the arm and hand when extended down the side of the person. Shirts/tops must have at least 3 inches across the shoulder. Only one‐piece swimsuits or tankinis that completely cover the stomach are allowed. A dark t‐shirt must be worn at all times over two‐piece swimsuits. Shoes and shirts must be worn at all times outside cabins, except while swimming.
