The intention of all staff of Rainbow Tree Therapies is that each camper has an amazing experience at camp. However, there are extremely rare occasions where the camper may have difficulty acclimating to the camp environment. In the event that your child’s behavior significantly impacts his own safety or the safety of others in a harmful way, the following plan will occur. The below plan is to ensure that all campers have a safe and meaningful experience. Behaviors such as aggression toward others or self, destruction of camp, fleeing the camp area, or repeated verbal disrespect cannot be tolerated at camp.
- On the first observation of an unsafe behavior, the staff will inform the parents as soon as is conveniently possible.
- On the second observation of an unsafe behavior, the parents will be called immediately and will be asked to come pick up their child as soon as possible.
- After you have picked up your child, a phone conversation will take place with Lisa Haverly as to the appropriate return of your child to camp.
