Camp Rules & Policies
Camp Rules & Policies
Our instructors review all of our camp rules at the beginning of each camp week with our campers, to ensure a positive experience for all and a healthy camp community.
Lavner Camps emphasizes a safe, fun, and healthy camp environment that fosters learning and friendship, and appropriate camp behavior is essential to a great overall experience for everyone involved. It is imperative that every camper feels included, safe, and part of our camp community.
Behavioral Policy: Lavner Camps reserves the absolute right to dismiss a camper without refund for any behavior (1) that threatens or endangers the welfare and/or the safety of any camper, instructor, or any other person involved with the camp, (2) is disruptive to the overall camp environment, which interferes with the beneficial use and enjoyment by campers and staff, or (3) for any form of bullying of other campers or disrespectful behavior to camp authority.
