Policies & General Rules

Discipline Policy

  • If a camper’s conduct or management becomes dangerous to themselves or others we will:
    • manage the situation to the best of our abilities
    • contact the parents or emergency contact person for guidance and to inform of action taken.
    • Unresolvable problems rarely occur at camp but when all other plans of action have been tried, we will ask the parents/guardians to transport their camper home.
  • Campers will get three warnings for misconduct.  As well, privileges may be lost (ie. canteen)
    • 2nd warning will include a phone call home
    • 3rd warning may result in early dismissal
  • Campers dismissed from camp WILL NOT receive a refund.

Visitor Policy

Although we don’t mind visits, we have found that sometimes a visit from a parent/guardian is what makes campers homesick.  Therefore, if you’re thinking of visiting your child while at camp, we ask that you contact the camp director first to see how your child is doing.  The camp director will be accessible 24/7 during all camps.

If you do come to visit the camp grounds, please visit the camp director or the kitchen staff upon arrival to let them know your there.

General Rules

  • Cooperation with and respect for those in authority is expected and required.
    • Leave cell phones, iPads, iPods, electronic games, etc. and bad attitudes at home
    • Camper’s are expected to behave in a safe and non-aggressive manner
    • Camper’s are not allowed in restricted areas (staffing housing areas, pastures, etc.)
    • Modest clothing is required at all times
    • For the protection of our campers, while maintaining a relaxed atmosphere of fun and adventure, St Croix Christian Camp insists that campers adhere to our code of conduct.  NO Alcohol, tobacco, drugs, or sexual misconduct will be tolerated.  Campers breaking the code or who are rebellious and uncooperative may be picked up early by parents/guardians.  (NO Refunds will be issued for these campers).  Every effort however, will be made to make your child’s stay at camp both enjoyable and safe.
  • Electronics and Cell Phones
    • St Croix Christian Camp adheres to a strict NO Cell Phone/Electronics policy for campers.  SCCCamp believes that the camp experience is a way of stepping outside the rhythm and routine of everyday life into an engaging week which helps to shape the campers independence and problem solving abilities.  The camp atmosphere encourages campers to step outside of their comfort zones and participate in new activities free from electronics.  Cell phones may promote homesickness, hinder the camper’s ability to create friendships and allow inappropriate posting of pictures to social media sites.  In adherence to this policy, campers should not bring electronic games, i-pods or cell phones to camp.
  • Smoking
    • Campers are not permitted to smoke or vape at camp.  Please do not send or encourage campers to bring cigarettes or vapes to camp.  The camp must be informed about campers with a nicotine habit.

Inclusion Policy

For our camp programs, we welcome any camper regardless of their gender identity. Our staff is trained to share the love of Jesus with all campers and provide a safe space for them. In order to create this environment, we have some guidelines that need to be respected in order for gender issues to not become a disruption at camp. We want to share these with you in advance, so that parents, along with children, can make an informed decision about whether or not St Croix Christian Camp is the right fit. If your child identifies as LGBTQ, please discuss these guidelines with them prior to registering them for camp, to make sure they can feel comfortable in this setting.

  • Any camper identifying as LGTBQ must not use their camp experience as an opportunity to try and force other campers to accept their viewpoint on gender identity. If the expression of their gender becomes disruptive, we may decide to remove the camper, for the benefit of the camper and the other campers in the cabin.
  • Conversely, if any camper harasses or makes a significant issue with a camper who is identifying as LGTBQ, he/she may be asked to stop immediately as we do not permit bullying in any way at the camp.
  • For those identifying as transgender, they will be housed with their biological birth gender. Our staff will use biological gender pronouns consistent with the housing in which the camper is staying or simply use their name.
