BEHAVIOUR Management at Camp

CAG is committed to providing a safe, nurturing and inclusive Camp program that strengthens and builds each child’s self-esteem and provides a creative program that will capture your child’s attention and keep them positively engaged.
Camp rules are shared with the children on the first day of camp. The overriding principles are safety, cooperation and respect.
Our first line approach to behaviour management is prevention. Staff are trained to keep an eye out for any developing issues and to distract and redirect before a situation develops. With the same end goal of prevention, we endeavour to present activities each day that keep the children productively engaged.
If a situation escalates, we do give consequences appropriate to the severity of the behaviour. Our goal is always to manage behaviours in a positive, constructive manner.
For more detail please see our Camp Behaviour Management Policy and Policy with Regard Suspensions and Terminations
