The goal of Life Camp is to provide a safe, enjoyable atmosphere for all children. For this reason we adhere to strict discipline procedures. This helps to maintain a safe environment in our camp.
LIFE CAMP HAS A ZERO-TOLERANCE POLICY FOR BULLYING
Discipline is a matter of creative effort on the part of the counselor because each camper and each situation is unique. We do, however, observe certain guidelines:
- Positive Reinforcement – The main emphasis of Life Camp is to challenge campers to do the right thing. Our counselors focus on commend good
- Time Outs – When a camper violates the code of conduct, a timeout from an activity is matched with the offense. This is at the discretion of the staff.
Chronic or Serious Offenses – Those who show repeated behavior problems or commit a serious offense may be suspended from camp. Some examples include, but are not limited to: stealing, profanity, sexual misconduct, substance abuse and repeated disrespect or disobedience. Any camper found abusing; defacing or breaking any Life Camp or facility property will also be suspended.
- Fighting and Bullying – We want all children and parents to know that we have a zero tolerance policy for fighting and bullying. Fighting or bullying in camp will result in suspension for any and all campers who strike another camper, even in self-defense. Because Life Camp takes great pride in making sure no campers are left alone, this allows any student who is in any danger the ability to seek safety. Therefore, it is never an acceptable reason to strike another camper while at camp.
*There are no refunds for suspensions.*
The late pick-up fee is $15.00 per fifteen minutes beginning at 6:01 pm. These fees must be paid by cash, check or credit card at the time your child is picked up from camp.

All campers must bring a lunch from home. Life Camp does not provide lunch as a part of the weekly tuition. Campers will not have access to a refrigerator so please plan your lunches accordingly. We also suggest you send an AM and PM snack for your child unless they plan to purchase something from the snack shop. Snack shop will only be open and available during scheduled snack time.
If your child forgets his/her lunch, a lunch will be provided for $10.00. Hot Dog, chips, applesauce or fruit cup, and water are included. Parents will be billed and required to pay for the lunch at check out that day.
Life Camp Snack Shop [optional]
During morning snack, campers can eat something brought from home or something they have purchased from our snack shop. Items for purchase range in price from $0.50 to $2.50. In the morning, the snack shop will offer breakfast items such as; cereal, danish, breakfast bars, fruit cups and other items. In the afternoon, the snack shop will offer items such as; sandwiches, chips, cookies, water, Gatorade juice and other items for purchase.
Life Camp will not be responsible for money that is lost or stolen!
Lost and Found
Life Camp is not responsible for ANY items that are lost, stolen or damaged. Therefore, we encourage you to label everything your child brings to camp. There are many items that look similar and by labeling them many problems can be prevented. This is especially true for articles of clothing. All items left at the camp will be collected daily and placed in the lost and found area. Please check this area frequently as the items will be cleared out several times throughout the summer.
We also request that your child not bring toys, balls, cell phones, electronics or jewelry to camp. The camp assumes no responsibility for items that are lost, stolen or damaged under ANY circumstances. Campers bringing these items will be suspended for the day.
