|CLOTHING: Art weeks can be messy. We have paint shirts and work to stay neat but please plan outfits accordingly so favorite clothes are not ruined.

|CAMPER CODE OF CONDUCT: In order to maintain a safe, fun and productive camp environment, we require parents and students to read and understand the importance of abiding by the following code of conduct:
- I will follow the class or camp schedule.
- I will respect the counselors, teachers, director, and other students.
- I will not use foul language.
- Before leaving the room, I will ask a staff member for permission.
- I will treat others with respect.
- Fighting, hitting or bullying will not be tolerated.
- I will follow all safety rules set forth by the camp staff.
|FIDDLEHEAD BEHAVIOR POLICY: Fiddlehead classes and camps are meant to be a fun, educational, and a recreational activity. For the benefit of all campers, it is important that children behave appropriately. If it becomes necessary to take disciplinary action against a student, the steps will be followed as outlined below:
- First Occurrence -‐ The student will receive a verbal warning and an explanation as to why the behavior is inappropriate (whenever possible, this will be done in a secluded setting, away from other campers). The student’s parents will be notified of their behavior via phone call or when they arrive to pick up their child.
- Second Occurrence-‐ Staff will determine the appropriate consequence for the student’s behavior (examples may include a “time out” or exclusion from participating in an activity). A one day suspension may be given, if not more (with no refund) and specified to the parent/guardian that the next occurrence may result in the child’s continued expulsion without refund. In addition, a meeting may be setup with the parent/guardian and camper to create a partnership to resolve any issues.
- Third Occurrence – The third incident may result in immediate expulsion from camp without refund.
The Fiddlehead Director will make final determination for expulsion and reserves the right to ban any child from summer camps following a first incident in cases of serious inappropriate behavior.
