Camp Jorn YMCA Bullying Contract

Dear Day Camp Participants,

Please read the anti-bullying contract below and review it with your child.  This form MUST be signed by each participant’s parent/guardian and returned to the director.  We take bullying very seriously at Camp Jorn and will not tolerate bully-like behavior.  Thanks for your support!!

Camp staff is trained in behavior management techniques, including positive guidance, redirection, and the setting of clear limits and expectations. Our intent is for your camper to have a very positive experience at camp. With your support, we will ensure that everyone has a great summer. Attempts to correct behavior through action plans, behavior contracts, and parent/guardian meetings are all part of our behavior management plan. Behavior that disrupts programming, endangers self or others, disrespects property or individuals, or requires repeated one-to-one attention may result in the camper being suspended and/or expelled from Camp Jorn. Any disciplinary action taken will relate directly to the child’s action, not personality and will be handled in a timely manner. No physical punishment, humiliation, scare tactics, or controlling measures will be used by our staff. Methods using food or sleep deprivation, or extended isolation time will not be permitted.

Discipline Policy:

  • Every Camp Jorn participant shall be responsible for conducting themselves in such a way as to follow the Y’s core values of RESPECT, RESPONSIBILITY, CARING, and HONESTY. All while respecting the rights of others and assisting in the creation of a bully free environment.
