Code of Conduct & Camp Expectations

Youth Central staff is committed to creating a fun and engaging space where everyone is valued, respected and diversity is celebrated. Everyone, from staff to campers to parent/guardians, are expected to adhere to CPCC Youth Central's Code of Conduct & Camp Expectations and conduct themselves with the utmost respect.
  • Campers are expected to be kind and respectful to each other, the camp staff, and all of CPCC's property and materials. This includes, but is not limited to, kind and inclusive language, lack of unwanted or inappropriate touching, and avoiding unsafe behaviors after being asked to.
  • In the event that a camper misbehaves (i.e., physically or verbally aggressive or disrespectful behavior, use of profanities or inappropriate topics of discussion, continuously disruptive behavior, purposely running away from the group, or defiance of authority), the staff will address the camper one-on-one to discuss the behavior. If the behavior continues to persists, this will result in immediate notification to the parent/guardian to pick up their camper and could also result in withdrawal from the camp week without a refund.
  • Theft or causing intentional damage to college property or anyone's property will be grounds for immediate withdrawal of camp, no refund provided and could result in parent/guardian financial responsibility for damages and/or loss.
  • Parents/Guardians are expected to be kind and respectful to each other, the campers and CPCC staff, and all of CPCC's Youth Central guidelines, as well.  This includes, but is not limited to, kind and inclusive language and adhering to our drop-off and pick-up times.  Dropping campers off earlier than 10 minutes prior to the start of camp and/or picking them up late (after a grace period of 5 minutes) is considered unconcerned and unacceptable behavior as we do not have staff to supervise campers before and after camp times.
Youth Central Bullying Policy: There is zero tolerance for bullying at camp. Bullying is defined as a behavioral form of violence which includes physical, verbal, social, or cyber-attacks that occur in a repetitive manner with hurtful intentions used to exploit an imbalance of power. When a camper is involved in an incident where one camper is picking on another child during an activity, the offending camper will be taken aside and explained that they are exhibiting hurtful behaviors by staff.

If this behavior continues after a warning, this has become a bullying behavior. This will result in immediate parent/guardian notification to pick up their camper and will be asked to leave and not return for the duration of the camp because of violation of the Bullying Policy. A refund will not be given. Youth Central staff is vigilant and can differentiate bullying from other behaviors, but they are not omnipotent. If your camper describes to you an incident that you suspect could be bullying please tell us so we can take the proper steps to end any bullying behavior at Youth Central camps.

By having your child(ren) attend camp, you are agreeing to follow and adhere to our Code of Conduct and Camp Expectations.
