This means that staff members are expected to refrain from using their personal cell phones to communicate with the parents of the campers. This policy likely exists to ensure that staff members are focused on their responsibilities and duties during their working hours, rather than being distracted by personal calls. It also helps to maintain appropriate boundaries between staff and campers' families.
