Participant code of behaviour

Participants who join the department's holiday camps are required to demonstrate behaviours that support the growth of the individual and the achievement of team outcomes.

Participants should:

  • Treat all participants as you like to be treated. Do not bully or take unfair advantage of another participant.
  • Respect the privacy and personal space of other individuals.
  • Respect the rights, dignity and worth of all participants regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.
  • Cooperate with your instructor and other participants. Without them there would be no holiday program.
  • Never argue with an instructor or other participants.
  • Control your temper. Physical and verbal abuse of instructors, sledging other participants or deliberately distracting or provoking other participants is not acceptable or permitted behaviours on camp holiday programs.
  • Demonstrate independence and participate for your own enjoyment and benefit, not just to please your parents/carers.
  • Take leadership. Be a good sport. Applaud all good plays whether they are made by your team or other participants.
  • Work equally hard for yourself and/or your team. Your team's performance will benefit and so will you.
  • Accept responsibility for your own actions.
  • Enter only the dormitory allocated to you for the duration of the camp.
  • Remain in segregated areas as designated by the camp coordinators.

To assist in achieving these objectives we ask that the following be observed:

  • No mobile phones
  • No smoking
  • No alcohol
  • No drugs
  • No swearing
  • No lollies
  • No intimate relations
