Silver is the color of the coins you could use to call home, if we only had a pay phone. Phones are provided, but you will have to call collect, use a calling card, or use your mobile phone (Not all services work at camp).
You can receive messages from people calling you on the land line, but phone calls are not put through to the bunkhouse. Cell phones are not carried during the day, so you will not be easy to contact all the time, which is a change from our society. Please explain this to your friends and relatives, so they won't get confused as to why they can never get in touch with of you. Encourage that mail!
