Highfield Camp - Code of Conduct

Highfield Camp - Code of Conduct


Highfield Country Club Day Camp is dedicated to providing an outstanding summer camp program. To accomplish this goal, campers are expected to behave appropriately and promote a safe, fun, and healthy environment through productive participation. We aim to promote character values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility in all aspects of our camp program. We ask that all campers and parents/guardians read this code together and sign before arriving at camp.

As a camper, I will be respectful

• Cooperate and contribute positively to the experience of fellow campers.
• Be careful and considerate that my actions will not hurt another camper’s feelings or hurt them physically, either intentionally or accidentally.
• Show respect to the camp staff, and cooperate fully with their instructions by following directions at all times.
• Respect the property of others.
• Respect camp property and equipment/ supplies in all camp areas (golf course, tennis courts and pool area)

As a camper, I will behave appropriately

• Conduct myself responsibly. I understand that horseplay, unwelcome teasing/bullying or other unkind behaviors are not allowed and will not be tolerated. Campers will face consequences per the camp director/ assistant camp director.
• Communicate in an appropriate manner, which means I will not use foul language or gestures, harsh words or raise my voice.
• Refrain from deliberately causing bodily harm to the campers or staff. I understand that pushing, kicking, hitting or fighting are not acceptable behavior and will not be tolerated and will be grounds for suspension/dismissal from the camp program.

As a camper, I will abide by the general rules

• Dress appropriately for camp everyday. On the golf course, campers are encouraged to wear collared shirts and shorts/skirts. On the tennis courts, campers are to wear a t-shirt and shorts.
• Participate in all camp activities. (Golf, tennis, swim lessons, and group games/crafts)
• Leave all electronic devices at home such as iPods, hand held computer games, MP3 players, and cell phones. (A parent/guardian must seek permission from the camp director in order for the camper to be able to carry a cell phone for emergencies).
• Have FUN!

Steps taken for failure to follow this Code of Conduct

• Counselor will redirect the camper to a more appropriate behavior.
• The camper will be reminded of the behavior guidelines.
• If the behavior persists, staff will discuss the problem with a parent/guardian.
• The staff will document the situation. The written documents will include what the behavior problem is, what provoked the problem, and the corrective action taken.
• If the problem persists to the point where a second phone call becomes necessary, the Camp Director may find it necessary to have the camper picked up early from camp.
• If a camper's behavior at any time threatens the immediate safety of him/her, other campers, or staff, the parent/guardian will be notified and expected to pick-up the child immediately.
