Code of Conduct

List of 1 frequently asked questions.

  • Does Crescent Camps have a Code of Conduct?

    Yes. Every parent/guardian must read and consent to the Crescent Camps Code of Conduct. It is based on Crescent School’s Code of Conduct and is rooted in four core values: respect, responsibility, honesty and compassion.

    Crescent Camps promotes responsibility, respect and civility in a safe learning and fun camp environment. A positive camp culture exists when all members feel safe, included and accepted and actively promote positive behaviours and interactions. All campers, counsellors, instructors and staff have the right to be safe, and feel safe, in the Crescent Camp community.

    These standards of behaviour apply not only to campers, but to all individuals involved in the Crescent Camps community – parents, volunteers, counsellors, instructors and staff – whether they are on school property, on school buses, at camp-related events or activities, or in other circumstances that could have an impact on the camp climate.

Lunches and Snacks

List of 2 frequently asked questions.

  • Are lunch and snacks provided?

    Each camper is responsible for bringing a nut-free lunch each day. Campers should also bring healthy, nut-free snacks for breaks. A snack is provided to our Extended Care Campers before and after camp begins. Please use refillable containers to reduce waste.

    We have partnered with Kid’s Kitchen to provide you with the option of a catered lunch service, at an additional cost. Visit the Kid’s Kitchen website and order your choice of healthy, nut-free lunches by 10 a.m. the previous day. Lunch will be delivered to Crescent Camps for your camper in time for their lunch break.

    Please note that while we make every effort to have a nut- and allergy-free environment, we cannot guarantee a complete allergy-free environment at Crescent Camps.  All campers must be able to identify their allergies and carry the required medication for treatment.
  • Do you have a water station for campers?

    Yes, a water refill station is available to all campers.  All campers should bring a refillable water bottle each day.
