The job of Sound Control is to monitor the decibel levels of all sound camps. We want to maintain a fun atmosphere, but we have to keep our noise level below the maximum allowed by Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds.

Additionally, if the volume is too high, inform the sound camp and ensure they lower the volume.
