Behavior Management and Guidelines
Campers should be respectful of other campers and staff, follow staff instructions, participate in planned activities, maintain good hygiene, and clean up after themselves.
Skunk Rock summer camp forbids the following behaviors:
- Threatening others
- Using profanity
- Stealing or damaging camp property or the property of others
- Leaving a program or activity without permission
- Endangering anyone’s health or safety
- Bringing weapons onto camp property
In cases of repeated behavioral issues or safety concerns, the camper’s guardian will be issued an Incident Report Form to review, sign and return to camp the following day. If the behavior continues, additional Incident Report Forms will be given to the guardian in an attempt to correct the behavior. As a final resort, if the behavior cannot be corrected, the child may be removed from the camp.
These can immediately result in expulsion from the camp. This occurs if a child severely disrupts, intentionally bullies another child to the extent of harm, willfully harms property or person, refuses to obey staff or engages in actions that make camp impossible to run in a normal manner.
Skunk Rock is focused on creating an artistic community for kids where they can express themselves in a safe and loving environment. Skunkers work on playing music together––learning chord progressions and drum beats. They play games and do trivia, make posters and instruments, listen to music and sing karaoke, draw sound waves and talk about the science of sound, experiment with drum machines and 4 track recorders. The list goes on . . . see program philosophy here
