In order for all the children to have a good time at day camp, Loisirs Laurendeau Dunton has developed a series of rules based on what is being done elsewhere in other day camps.
Mutual respect is the basis of these rules, and disrespectful behaviour will not be tolerated.
Violence against children, camp staff or any other person encountered during day camp activities, whether verbal, physical or gestural, is not acceptable and, just as for disrespectful behaviour, will not be tolerated.
The following code of conduct aims at preventing violence, impoliteness, inappropriate and unacceptable language, throwing of objects, biting, intentional or deliberate material damage, misconduct, failure to follow instructions, possession of prohibited and/or dangerous items, refusal or lack of participation, and leaving camp without permission.
In the event of inappropriate behavior from a child, here are the normal steps that will be taken to solve the problem. Please note that any major behavior problem will result in the immediate suspension of the child from day camp, without resorting to the measures associated with the first three warnings.
The well-being of all children and day camp members will always supersede the interests of a single child. Loisirs Laurendeau-Dunton’s management reserves the right to permanently expel a child, without notice or refund of fees to the parent(s).
The child receives verbal notice by the camp leader, and the person who picks the child up is made verbally aware of the situation and the child’s first warning.
The camp leader meets the child to explain what needs to change and come to an agreement. The person who picks the child up is made verbally aware of the situation and the child’s second warning.
The camp coordinator and the camp leader communicate with the parents to inform them of the child’s behavior problems and to reach an agreement on how to properly address the situation.
Severe disciplinary measures are taken according to the seriousness of the child’s actions. The child can be suspended for a period deemed necessary or permanently expelled from day camp activities.
The day camp registration form asks for confirmation of understanding, endorsement and acceptance of the code of conduct by the child and their parents by checking the appropriate boxes.
