Behavior Guidelines & Discipline Procedures


Day Camp staff make every effort to ensure all campers have a positive experience at camp. When a camper does not follow the behavior guidelines, we will take the following action steps.

General Behavior Rules

Be Kind - keep hands, feet, and objects to yourself
Be Respectful - to staff, others, yourself and environment
Be Safe - stay with a staff member and your group

Unacceptable Behavior

  • Refusing to follow the behavior guidelines or camp rules
  • Using profanity, vulgarity or obscenity
  • Stealing or damaging property (personal or camp property)
  • Refusal to participate in activities or cooperate with staff
  • Disrupting the program
  • Leaving the program without permission
  • Endangering the health and safety of children and/or staff
  • Physical violence or bullying/teasing toward another camper or staff will not be tolerated.

When Camp Behavior Rules are Broken

  • Staff will redirect the camper to more appropriate behavior.
  • If inappropriate behavior continues, the camper will be reminded of behavior guidelines and camp rules and the camper will be asked to decide on action steps to correct his/her behavior.
  • Staff will document the situation, the inappropriate behavior and action taken. Parents will be notified.
  • If the situation is not resolved and inappropriate behavior continues, as a final action step, the camper will be dismissed from camp.
