Please make sure you read carefully and understand that there are no full refunds being issued after April 1, 2022. However, we do acknowledge individual situations and the uncertainity of our times.

Behavior Guidelines:

Please read our behavior policy with your camper before camp.

We expect campers to act respectfully at all times when they are on our property or participating in our programs. Campers are to behave in a mature, responsible way and respect the rights and dignity of others and all La Dee Da property.

Actions will reflect the Four Core Values:

  • Campers take Responsibility for their actions.
  • Campers Respect themselves, each other, camp equipment and the environment.
  • Honesty will be the basis for all relationships and interactions.
  • Campers will be Caring in their relationships with others.

Campers should talk to a counselor or any camp staff member if they are uncomfortable with any experiences or need assistance while at camp.

Discipline Procedures:

When a camper does not follow the behavior guidelines, we will take the following action steps as behavior problems progress.

  1. Staff will redirect the camper to more appropriate behavior.
  2. If inappropriate behavior continues, the camper will be reminded of behavior guidelines and camp rules, and the camper will be asked to decide on action steps to correct his/her behavior.
  3. If a child’s behavior still does not meet expectations and is affecting the experience of other campers, he/she will be referred to the Camp Director.
  4. If inappropriate behavior continues, as a final action step the camper may be dismissed from camp.

Examples of unacceptable behavior:

  • Refusing to follow behavior guidelines or camp rules
  • Using profanity, vulgarity or obscenity
  • Stealing or damaging property (personal or camp property)
  • Refusal to participate in activities or cooperate with staff
  • Disrupting a program
  • Endangering the health and safety of children and/or staff
  • Teasing, making fun or bullying of other campers or staff

Camper fees are non-refundable if a camper is sent home for disciplinary reasons. Physical violence or bullying toward another camper or staff member will result in immediate dismissal from the camp program.
