Policies and Procedures

Camper Code of Conduct

CampFA is committed to providing campers with opportunities to learn, to promote self-confidence, to develop decision-making and social skills, to learn new or improve current skills, and to be environmentally aware. Our philosophy focuses on the need and growth of both the individual camper and the overall group. In order to maintain a positive and safe environment, our campers are expected to follow CampFA's Camper Code of Conduct.

Be RESPECTFUL by...

  • treating others with respect and courtesy.
  • openly listening to others' thoughts and opinions.
  • not taking part of leading any bullying, harassment, name calling, unwanted teasing, or exclusion of others.
  • respecting other campers' belongings and camp equipment/supplies.
  • telling the truth.

Be RESPONSIBLE by...

  • wearing appropriate clothing/shoes to camp each day.
  • informing camp staff of challenges you have with another camper, activity, or situations. If staff is not informed, they may not be able to stop the problem or provide assistance.
  • accepting personal responsibility for my actions.

Be POSITIVE by...

  • communicating appropriately, which excludes the use of foul language, gestures, harsh words, or slurs.

  • A break from scheduled activities
