Summer Camp is a privilege for children. The goal of the North Branford Summer Camp Program is to provide a safe, fun summer experience for all campers. So that each child can have a memorable summer experience, all Campers are expected to respect themselves, each other, the staff and the Programís facilities. The North Branford Summer Camp Program stresses the need for each child to take personal responsibility for her or his own actions.
Problem Management Procedure:
Parent/Caregiver cooperation is vital to the successful implementation of our discipline policy. In the event when a child is having trouble adhering to the rules of the program, the Camp Director will talk with the parent/caregiver to decide how best to deal with the problem. Notification will be given in the form of an Incident Report describing what occurred. Both the Summer Camp staff member who witnessed the incident and the Parent/Caregiver must sign the Report. One copy will go home with the family and a copy will remain in our office file.
Examples of unacceptable behavior that would warrant a report are:
A family will be required to withdraw their child/children from the program if their actions are disruptive to the Summer Camp Program and it is in the professional judgment of the Camp Director that this is the only alternative.
Depending on the severity and frequency of behavioral issues one or more of the following actions to be taken:
An incident report as described earlier, will be considered a warning, which depending on the severity of the offense, may be the only action taken. However, the actions below may accompany this report.
A two day suspension from the program. These days do not include holidays or weekends or days when the child is not scheduled to attend the program.
A ten day suspension from the program. These ten days do not include holidays or weekends or days when the child is not scheduled to attend the program.
Expulsion from the program.
