Camper Code of Conduct

Purpose: To provide campers w/ a clear understanding of what is expected of them while staying at Cumberland Grove Campground.

  • Cell Phones: Campers will be allowed to carry & use cell phones. However, there will be times in which cell phone use will not be permitted. These times include church services, afterglows, and from midnight until breakfast. Failure to comply with this rule will result in loss of privilege until the conclusion of the camp or retreat.
  • Clothing: In keeping with the biblical principle of modesty, campers are expected to dress in such a way as to not draw undo attention to their clothing or bodies. For men, this means that a minimum of t-shirts and shorts are expected. For ladies, this means that pants, school shorts, and shirts that do not show cleavage are expected. If a camper does not bring modest clothes, clothing may be provided by the camp. Failure to dress appropriately will result in a warning and, if not headed, expulsion. Finally, all campers are expected to wear their nicest clothes to evening services out of respect for the camp and its history.
  • After-hours: Campers are expected to remain in their rooms following afterglows and are not to leave unless special permission has been granted. Permission may be granted only by team leaders, night watchmen, or the camp director. Failure to comply will result in
    immediate expulsion.
  • Dormitories: Campers are under no circumstances to wander into areas designated for members of the opposite sex. Violators will be expelled.
  • Participation: Campers are expected to attend all camp activities. Under certain circumstances, exceptions may be granted. But only when permission has been obtained beforehand and when an adult has agreed to take responsibility for the camper during said activity.
  • Relationships: In order to protect and promote healthy relationships, campers are never to engage other campers in contact or conversation of a sexual nature. Furthermore, no physical contact shall be allowed between campers of either sex. and no abusive behaviors will be tolerated between campers. Furthermore, no campers are allowed to, under any circumstance, be in a bed with members of either sex. This rule applies to all, and failure to comply will result in immediate expulsion.
  • Language: No swearing, vulgar, or explicit language will be tolerated. This includes music. Failure to comply will result in discipline and, if need be, expulsion.
  • Substance Abuse: No tobacco, alcohol, or drugs are permitted. Prescription drugs are to be turned in at registration unless otherwise directed.
  • Camper Accountability: Campers are expected to report all violations of camp rules to the camp director. If campers fail to report these violations, they will be treated as if they participated in the activity themselves and will likely be suspended from attending future camps and retreats.
  • Boundaries: Campers are expected to be in public places at all times unless otherwise specified. Approved public places include the snack shack, basketball pavilion, dormitories, and cafeteria. During worship times, campers may enter the retreat center and, in the evening, the camp tabernacle. However, unless a service is taking place or about to start, these locations are also off limits. Under no circumstances are campers to enter cabins or buildings not listed.
