Camper Code of Conduct
updated 10/10/2022, changes are highlighted

In a nutshell: Practice kindness!

 

Reminder: ANY participant who leaves camp voluntarily or is dismissed for conduct will not receive a refund, and may not be able to register for future camps.

Caregivers and campers will be asked to sign the "Code of Conduct" as part of the camp paperwork.


Famous Adventures provides campers with outdoor adventure opportunities in a physically and emotionally safe environment. We believe in experiential learning to personal responsibility. 

 

We emphasize kindness above all else.  We recognize the value of our campers and staff from all races, colors, national origins, religions, creeds, abilities, sexual orientations, gender identities and gender expressions.


Successful campers will be able to: 


Take care of themselves. Examples include: 

  • Stay with the group at all times. 

  • Wear appropriate clothes and close-toed shoes each day for comfort.

  • Bring water bottle and drink LOTS of water.

  • Ask staff or another camper for help.

  • Commit to having fun, staying positive, and being challenged.

  • Take responsibility for your actions. 

​Be kind to others: 

  • ALWAYS follow safety rules and listen to instructions from staff and outfitters. Encourage others to listen, too. 

  • Communicate and listen to others, and refrain from foul language, slurs, and harsh words. 

  • Actively support the staff and campers. 

  • Respect each other. Don’t tease, or exclude other campers. 

  • Don’t borrow or take other people's things. ​

Failing to follow these guidelines may result in one or more of these actions:

  • Verbal warning from camp staff

  • Timeout or removal from scheduled activities

  • Parent/Guardian phone call, text, or verbal warnings at pick-up*

  • Immediate suspension or dismissal from camp**

*Campers who choose not to improve their behavior after 3 phone calls, texts, or verbal warnings at pick-up, will be dismissed from camp without refund.  Upcoming camps may be canceled/refunded, and campers may be ineligible to attend future camps. 


**The following actions are not tolerated, and will result in immediate dismissal, without refund. Future enrollments will be canceled and refunded in full, and campers will not be eligible to attend future camps. 
 

  • Physical fighting or attempting to fight, including hitting, biting, kicking, or otherwise injuring or attempting to injure a camper or staff.   

  • Harsh language directed at or about other people, including but not limited to slurs, threats, bullying, or harassment.

  • Continuously disruptive or disrespectful behavior.

  • Excessively unsafe behavior, or actions that endanger the safety of others.

  • Use and/or possession of drugs or controlled substances, alcohol, tobacco, and any type of weapon or dangerous material.

  • Campers or parents who cannot or will not follow our COVID-19 policy will be dismissed without refund. 

Caregivers, we need your help modeling these behaviors to all campers.  The Caregiver Code of Conduct includes all of the above, plus:

  • Fill out the application and health form completely and honestly.

  • Let camp know of any special concerns for your camper, so we can communicate with you and provide the best possible care. 

  • Help your camper follow the Code of Conduct, and model it as an adult.

  • Arrive on time (8:30 am and 3:00 pm) and walk your camper to and from the vans each morning for check in and check out.

  • Refrain from harsh language, harassment, or bullying directed at staff, camp admin, campers or other caregivers.  Please contact camp owners/directors with any questions or concerns.  

COVID

COVID-19 Policy
updated 8/28/2023

We will continue to follow updates from the American Camp Association, Association of Camp Nurses, CDC and SCDHEC

Staying Safe: 

  • Stay up to date with vaccinations.  High vaccination coverage reduces the burden of COVID-19 on people, schools, healthcare systems, and communities.  Vaccines are required for our employees and strongly recommended for campers

  • Wear a mask.  All campers and staff are welcome to wear face coverings at any time, especially people at risk for severe illness. 
     

  • If there is another period of high community spread, as identified by the CDC, Famous Adventures may require masks, testing, and screening based on updated recommendations.  Campers and parents must follow any updated policies.
