We follow the Golden Rule at Camp Raintree: We treat others the way we would like to be treated. Campers are expected to care for the Camp Raintree environment, be respectful of the camp staff, follow the camp policies and rules, show kindness toward others, and use appropriate language.
We also know the busier we keep the campers, the less time they have to get into mischief. Each camp activity room is equipped with a range of choices, not just one activity. With so much to do, we expect the campers to engage and participate.
Even with all there is to do at Raintree, children sometimes misbehave. If this happens, counselors are trained to employ techniques to redirect the behavior. We give campers, especially new ones, more time to familiarize themselves with Camp Raintree and our rules. The most important thing our counselors can do is to bond with them, get to know them, enlist their help, and make them feel a part of the camp experience. In this way, we often can minimize most behavior issues. If we see a pattern of misbehavior developing, parents are notified.
In the event a camper continues to misbehave, parents will be notified by the Camp Director that the camper is not following the camp rules and the measures that have been taken to correct the behavior. Depending on the seriousness of the situation, a camper may be suspended for the day or the week.
If a camper continues to disrupt the group, compromises activities, disrespects a counselor, or disregards camp rules, we reserve the right to dismiss the camper without refund. We do not tolerate emotional or physical abuse, the threat of abuse, or any kind of emotional or psychological intimidation. We strive to maintain a peaceful camp community so that every camper can have a fun camp experience.
