Camper Code of Conduct – Camp Fire Central Puget Sound

We strive to make camp an inclusive and positive environment for everyone. Campers are asked to review and agree to the Code of Conduct at the start of camp.

Code of Conduct

Please review the Code of Conduct with your child before attending camp. Counselors will also go over this with campers on the first day. In addition to our Code of Conduct, please review our Camper Policies to ensure that you and your child are ready to have a successful week of camp.

  • Be a responsible member of the camp community
  • Be considerate and respectful of others’ feelings
  • Think in advance about the consequences of my actions
  • Resolve differences in a respectful manner
  • Protect the natural environment
  • Commit to honesty
  • Commit to try

Behavior Management

Counselors will use positive reinforcement to help campers adhere to the Code of Conduct. In case of continued behavior problems, the camp staff may implement the following consequences, depending on severity:

  • Time out away from the group
  • Loss of a privilege or special treat
  • Phone call to the parent(s)
  • Written behavior agreement
  • Camper will be sent home

If a camper is having continued behavior problems, camp staff will inform and consult the parents whenever possible. Campers may be sent home for behavior that is causing harm to self or others, or negatively impacting the experience of other campers.

Bullying

Bullying is a serious problem among children that goes beyond teasing and hurt feelings. We intentionally foster a culture of respect and emotional safety, and therefore do not tolerate bullying in the camp community. Kids who initiate or participate in bullying behavior may be sent home. Please talk to your child about bullying before attending camp, and encourage them to talk to a staff member if they witness or experience bullying.
