Preparing for Overnight Summer Camp
First time and seasoned campers (and parents!) will have questions about their upcoming summer camp experience. Regardless of the programming you're joining us for, planning ahead is key. Below you will find general information for campers registered in our Summer Overnight Camp Programs at Camp Pine Crest.
Further down, we have dedicated sections for Overnight campers (ages 5-14) and Leadership campers (ages 13-16).
If you can't find the answer to your questions here, please reach out to us and we'll be happy to help.
Camper Code of Conduct
At YMCA Camp Pine Crest our staff are trained and experienced in providing high quality care for our campers, ensuring the needs of everyone are met. We expect that all staff, volunteers, campers and parents are focused on supporting Pine Crest to be a safe environment for everyone, both emotionally and physically.
If a situation arises where a camper threatens the safety or security of another camper, staff member, or themselves, we will make every appropriate effort to inform the parents involved, address the behaviour, and provide a positive camp experience for everyone. However, should disruptive behaviour continue, the child may be dismissed from camp at the discretion of the Camp Director or the designate. The camp will not be held responsible for any costs or provide a refund associated with a camper’s dismissal on the grounds of disruptive behaviour.
Note: In extreme circumstances, a camper may be removed from the camp environment without warning if their behaviour jeopardizes the safety of campers or staff, or where the camper is engaged in illegal activities (including possession of non-prescription drugs, alcohol and/or tobacco products).
