Behavior Policies

It is expected that campers will follow our camp rules.  Certain behaviors will not be tolerated.  These behaviors may include, but are not limited to:

consistent disruption

any inappropriate physical contact

blatant disrespect toward the staff or other campers

the use of inappropriate language

destruction of property

Each camper will be afforded one formal warning following any significant behavioral problem/incident, with the goal being that the child corrects their behavior so that they can remain in camp. The instructor or Site Supervisor will inform the child’s parents of the warning. If the instructor reports a second occurrence of misbehavior by the same child, the child will not be permitted to return to camp.
