CAMPER CONDUCT
Camps are designed for the enjoyment and benefit of all campers enrolled, and campers are expected to abide by camp rules. Our goal is to be educational as well as entertaining. With that as the objective, we anticipate that no camper is here who does not want to be. Should any disciplinary problems occur, we will contact the parent/ guardian to discuss the misbehavior and/or to pick up their camper.
