Camp Policies

Discipline Policy

It is our goal to provide a positive experience for all our campers. As such, we believe part of this is creating a safe environment-- physically, emotionally and spiritually--for the campers to interact in. This means Camp Evergreen has behavioral expectations for campers and staff that allow us to function safely and fairly as a camp community. To facilitate this we have what's known as a "three-level" policy that applies to both campers and staff.

The First Level is simply to talk to the camper about the problem they are creating; the camper is pulled aside by their cabin leader and they discuss the issue at hand, and what can be done to correct it. In most cases, minor problems can be solved by this talk, and the issue in question won't come up again.  We often ask the Head Counsellor to help out at this level.

If the situation continues, a camper is placed on the Second Level. Here the Head Counsellor will involve the Summer Director, who will have a talk with the child regarding the recurring problem. If a second level is reached, the camper's parents may be contacted and informed of the problem the camper is creating asking for advice.

In the case of the Third Level, the camper's behaviorial difficulties, disturbance of other campers or refusal to cooperate with leader reaches a point where our staff cannot manage it appropriately in the camp setting. If a camper reaches the third level, the parents are contacted and asked to come pick the camper up, at which point they will not be allowed to continue their summer at camp.

Please note that a camper sent home at the third level is not able to enroll in future camps of that summer, but is welcome to try again next year.

Cancellation Policy

Over 30 days notice before the beginning of the camper's week of camp - full refund minus $75 non-refundable deposit.

Under 30 days notice before the beginning of the camper's week of camp - no refund unless a Dr. note. Then full refund minus $75 non-refundable deposit.

During Camp

If we ask the camper to go home due to illness or injury, we will give a credit for next years camp based on how many days the camper has been at camp. (we can see if there is room in another camp in the same summer)

If the camper and/or parents decide to go/take the camper home, there is no refund or credit. There is no refund/credit for homesickness even if we determine the camper should go home.

Tuck Shop Policy

The cost of tuck is included in your camp fee, excluding Internships and Pit Crew camps. Please don't send money to camp with your child. The tuck shop will be open during registration and after closing chapel, if you'd like to buy treats, tee-shirts, hoodies or other super cool souvenirs!

Nuts Policy

We at Camp Evergreen endeavour to provide a safe camping experience for any children who have nut allergies, and therefore have a Nut Aware policy. No nut products are served from the Kitchen, or sold in our Moose Junction General Store.

However, while at camp your child may be exposed to these products when coming into contact with other campers, and so we suggest that caution is used for parents registering campers with extreme/life threatening nut allergies.

Illness Policy

Due to the concern of transmitting communicable diseases to other campers or staff, we are asking parents that if your child is ill with a fever, vomiting, or diarrhea that they do not attend camp until they have been symptom-free for at least 48 hours. If your child develops any of these symptoms while at camp, parents will be contacted and they will be sent home until symptoms clear up.

We will make all possible efforts to move your child to a different week or refund your fees, according to our refund policy, if they are unable to attend camp due to illness. Therefore we please urge you to ensure you do not send your child to camp while ill for the safety of other campers and staff.

If you have any questions regarding this please contact Colleen at the office.
