If an emergency occurs and parents/emergency contact person cannot be reached, an ambulance will be called at parent's expense.
 
CAMPER CONDUCT/BEHAVIOR EXPECTATIONS: Our goal is to create a positive environment for our campers where they can learn and grow while having fun socializing and playing a variety of activities. All campers are expected to treat others as they would like to be treated. With that in mind, abuse of any kind will not be tolerated.

DISCIPLINE: Discipline is a joint effort on the part of the staff and child with the assistance of the parents. Specific rules of behavior are explained each Monday morning. For violation of rules or for other sufficient reasons, the children will be disciplined as follows:  
 
First Offense: a discussion will take place between the child, counselor and either program coordinator or camp supervisor. The child will be placed in time-out.  
 
Second Offense: a discussion will take place between the child, parent, counselor and either program coordinator or camp supervisor.  
 
Third Offense: the child will be dismissed from the camp without a refund. The use of corporal punishment is not allowed. The method used is time-out. Time-out is when a child is given time away from an activity, peers, etc. to think about his/her inappropriate behavior and try to develop a positive way to deal with the situation. Time-out is 1 minute per age. Example: If a child is age 6, time-out is 6 minutes.
