Steps taken for failure to follow these behaviour guidelines
- Staff will redirect the camper to a more appropriate behaviour.
- The camper will be reminded of the behaviour guidelines.
- If the behaviour persists, staff will discuss the problem with a parent/guardian.
- The staff will document the situation. The written documents will include what the behaviour problem is, what provoked the problem, and the corrective action taken.
- If the problem persists to the point where a second phone call becomes necessary, the Camp Director may find it necessary to have the camper picked up early from camp.
- If a camper’s behaviour at any time threatens the immediate safety of him/her, other campers, or staff, the parent/guardian will be notified and expected to pick-up the child immediately.
Failure to comply with the Code of Conduct may result in the removal from the program and/or additional fees. There will be no refunds given for campers who are removed from the program due to violations of the Code of Conduct
