Behaviour Intervention Plan
Behaviour is a choice... we choose to behave or misbehave and thus choose the consequences of our chosen behaviour. To ensure a safe environment for our campers we need to have our campers observing correct behaviour.
Anyone in violation of any of God’s commandments will receive the appropriate consequence for their behaviour in accordance with Christian teaching using the following procedure:
The issue and culprit(s) will be identified and information gathered from all parties involved should it be necessary.
Right from Wrong will be explained with compassion and diplomacy.
A plan for appropriate corrective behaviour will be discussed and implemented accordingly, encouraging reconciliation between parties if necessary.
Should the behaviour continue uncorrected, the parent/guardian may be included in a conference or be required to withdraw their child from camp. (Should expulsion be necessary no registration refund will be granted.)
