Camper Code of Conduct

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 this "Code of Conduct" as part of the camp paperwork.


Famous Adventures provides outdoor adventures for children to promote kindness and responsibility through curiosity about our natural world. Campers will learn about Responsibility, Outdoors, Curiosity and Kindness, beginning with the Code of Conduct:

 

Successful campers:

  • Are Responsible for their actions. Examples include: 

    • Dressing appropriately for camp each day, including close-toed shoes.  

    • Drinking LOTS of water, applying sunscreen, and eating healthy lunches. 

    • Asking staff for help when needed.

 

  • Commit to having fun Outdoors, staying with the group, and being environmental stewards.

 

  • Approach new experiences with Curiosity. Actively support the staff and other campers. ALWAYS follow safety rules from staff and outfitters, and encourage others to listen, too. 

 

  • Understand we emphasize Kindness above all else. We recognize the value of all races, colors, national origins, religions, creeds, abilities, sexual orientations, gender identities and gender expressions.  Our staff and campers actively promote diversity, equity and inclusion within our camp groups and in the wider community.


We understand that camp is a unique environment, and our staff are here to help.  For specific behavior that requires more attention, campers can expect: 

  • Redirection from camp staff (examples include: taking a break, providing alternate choices, verbal warning).

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

  • Campers who are unable to improve their behavior after 3 parent/guardian communications will be dismissed from camp without refund.  

 

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.

  • Stealing from other campers, Famous Adventures, or outfitters.

  • Excessively unsafe behavior, or any action that endangers the safety of others.

  • Use and/or possession of drugs or controlled substances (including any prescription medication), alcohol, tobacco, or any type of weapon (including pocket knives) or dangerous material. 

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.  

  • Any person carrying a firearm in the presence of campers will be asked to leave immediately, and their campers will be dismissed (see above), including but not limited to camper pick up and drop off, visitors, employees, instructors and vendors. 
    *Famous Adventures welcomes caregivers in law enforcement, and recognizes the appropriateness of carrying a handgun while in uniform.
