Standards of Conduct

For Camp Horizon Summer Camp Guests (Campers)

 


"Standards" versus "Rules"

Standards are not rules, but they are the basis for rules.  Standards are more general and less specific than rules.  Rules come from standards, but not all standards have or need a specific rule for every situation.  We have provided  these standards to make camp life both SAFE and ENJOYABLE for our staff and guests.  Failure to adhere to these standards will result in discipline or dismissal.

 


RESPECT OF PERSONS

Man is created in the image of God our maker. including every race, color, and national origin, and is therefore entitled to respect of their person. The cabin unit is an opportunity to learn to behave appropriately in a group and ultimately in society.  The rights and privileges of others are to be respected at all times.  While at Camp Horizon it is imperative that all guests show respect and obedience to those who have been given the responsibility to care for them.

 


LANGUAGE - BODY CONTACT

Camp Horizon is a Christ-centered ministry.  Language and behavior which are offensive to Christ and His servants is subject to discipline or removal from Camp Horizon.  This includes inappropriate body contact, and the inability to curb offensive speech.

 


RESPECT OF PROPERTY

The Camp Horizon facility belongs to the Lord and is supported by the donations of Christians who want this camp to be available for your use.  Property that is destroyed either deliberately, or while being used without permission must be replaced or repaired by the guest or their family.  Deliberate destruction of Camp Horizon property is grounds for dismissal without refund.


DRESS (RESPECT OF SELF)

Camp Horizon is ministry based on Biblical principles.  Proper attire shows self respect.  Guests are expected to be modestly dressed at all times according to the dress-code policy.

 


SAFETY AND SECURITY

Camp Horizon guests are entitled to safety and security.  Any action that threatens or endangers the safety or security of one's self or another is subject to discipline or removal from Camp Horizon. The Camp Horizon facility has areas which are off-limits to guests that are not accompanied by a staff member.  Unacceptable behaviors include fighting, stealing, making threatening remarks or actions, or being off-limits.

 


ITEMS NOT PERMITTED

The Camp Horizon program is designed to give our guests a break from the world for the duration of their stay.  The following items are specifically forbidden to be kept in cabins:  Electronic devices (any device that plays music or video, cell phones, games, computers,  etc), cards or dice, and  items that could be a potential weapon (knives, guns, etc).   These items may be stored in the office until departure.  Camp Horizon is a drug-free, alcohol-free, and tobacco-free facility.  Any guest that fails to check-in medications according to policy; or brings alcohol or tobacco products to camp is subject to discipline or removal from Camp Horizon.  We are bound by law to report possession of illegal substances.
