Behavioral Issues & Concerns

While a wide range of behavior is to be anticipated, not all behavior is acceptable. Clearwater Forest does not allow campers, who purposefully or consistently, negatively affect others’ experiences, stay at camp. Here is a list of behaviors that are not acceptable and may result in disciplinary consequences, parent contact and even expulsion from camp:

  • Violent behavior of any kind causing harm to other campers, staff, the natural environment, or camp property
  • Use of threats or intimidation
  • Consistent use of profanity
  • Sexual harassment
  • Use/possession of tobacco products, alcohol, illegal drugs, firearms, knives or other weapons, fireworks, or pornography
  • Consistent disrespect of camp staff and rules

At Clearwater Forest, bullying is inexcusable, and we have a firm policy against all types of bullying. Our camp philosophy is based on our mission statement which ensures that every camper has the opportunity to engage in a positive faith-building community, build meaningful relationships, and acquire valuable life skills. We work together as a team to ensure that campers gain self-confidence, make new friends, and go home with great memories.
