Code of Conduct
To ensure the safety and enjoyment of all campers, Western Space implements its own Code of Behavior for Space Explorers Program.
Inclusive Environment: Make new friends. Take turns, and be polite. Bullying and teasing will not be tolerated.
Safety: Listen to your camp staff. Think before you act. Be aware.
Celebrate Differences: Share ideas and learn about new cultures and individual’s challenges.
Take Responsibility: Help camp staff. Look out for your fellow campers. Make your time at Space camp great.
Abuse, whether physical or verbal, towards the instructors, counselors, fellow campers or others will not be tolerated. This will result in a call to the parent or guardian and in the removal of the child from the camp. No refund will be issued.
Additional Camper Information
What to Wear & What to Bring: Campers should wear shorts covering a minimum of mid-thigh, t-shirts covering midriff, and running shoes or covered toe sandals (crocs are not allowed). Campers should be dressed for the weather as they will be spending some time outdoors. It is recommended that children wear sunscreen, sun-hats and sunglasses. All camp clothes and items (e.g. clothes, towel, water bottle, bag and lunch bag) must be labelled with camper’s name. Campers are not allowed to bring items of value that are not required at camp (e.g. MP3/iPod, cell phones, and excessive amounts of money).
Lunch: Lunch is not provided to the campers. Campers are responsible to bring their own lunch, snacks and beverages. Campers will not be allowed to buy their own lunch. To be an all-inclusive environment, we request that campers do not bring food that contain peanuts (e.g. peanut butter, chocolate bars containing peanuts, etc.).
Allergies: If your child has any allergies, in particular food allergies, we ask that you to please note this during online registration or on your child’s registration form. We will make every attempt to accommodate their needs. However, we are unable control all of the factors, such as food or environment, that campers may be exposed to at camp. Our counselors will pay close attention to any allergies/medical concerns identified during the registration process.
Medication: If your child needs medication, please indicate this on the registration form. Please fill the medical form provided above and bring it to the first day of the camp.
