MMS Summer Camp Behavior Guidelines

Please read and discuss our behavior policy with your camper before they attend camp.

 We expect campers to act respectfully at all times when they are on our property or participating in our programs. Campers are to behave in a mature, responsible way and respect the rights and dignity of others.

Actions will reflect the following four core values:

  • Campers take Responsibility for their actions.
  • Campers Respect themselves, each other, camp equipment and the environment.
  • Honesty will be the basis for all relationships and interactions.
  • Campers will be Caring in their relationships with others.

Campers should talk to their instructor or any staff member if they are uncomfortable with any experiences or need assistance while at camp.

Discipline Procedures

When a camper does not follow the behavior guidelines, we will take the following action steps as behavior problems progress.

  1. Instructor or staff will redirect the camper to more appropriate behavior.
  2. If inappropriate behavior continues, the camper will be reminded of behavior guidelines and camp rules, and the camper will be asked to decide on action steps to correct his/her behavior.
  3. If a child’s behavior still does not meet expectations and is affecting the experience of other campers, he/she will be dismissed from camp and must be picked up by a parent/guardian.

Examples of unacceptable behavior:

  • Refusing to follow MMS, State of Michigan, and/or CDC COVID-19 safety protocol (eg. Refusing to wear mask covering both nose and mouth when indoors)
  • Refusing to follow behavior guidelines or camp rules
  • Using profanity, vulgarity, or obscenity
  • Stealing or damaging property (personal or camp property)
  • Refusing to participate in activities or cooperate with staff
  • Disrupting a program
  • Leaving a program without permission
  • Endangering the health and safety of other children and/or staff
  • Teasing, making fun, or bullying other campers or staff
  • Fighting of any kind

Camper fees are non-refundable if a camper is sent home for disciplinary reasons. Physical violence toward another camper or staff member will result in immediate dismissal from the camp.
