Camp behaviour

At camp, we strive to provide a fun, safe and respectful environment for all of our campers. We believe that every child has an equal right to have an excellent camp experience. We always keep a close watch on any anti-social behaviour such as teasing or bullying.

Your child must:

  • be able to take instruction and follow direction from camp staff
  • not behave in a manner that negatively affects another camper's experience
  • understand that they may not physically or verbally hurt others
  • respect the feelings, safety and personal integrity of themselves and others
  • respect camp property and/or another camper's property (parents/guardians are responsible for the cost of any damages deliberately caused by their child)

Guidelines are for the protection and benefit of all; violations can result in immediate removal from camp. If your child is asked to leave camp, you will not receive a refund.
