reserves the right to revise, modify, delete or add to any and all guidelines and procedures stated in this handbook or in any other document. However, any such changes must be in writing and must be authorized by the Camp Director.
We recognize that campers and counselors develop close, trusting relationships with one another at camp and that these relationships are healthy, wholesome and beneficial to campers and staff alike. We also recognize that it is natural for campers to want to keep in touch with their favorite counselors after camp. As a camp we do not encourage or sanction the exchange of contact information between campers and our staff, nor do we take responsibility for what may occur as the result of such contact. Therefore, our guideline is to forbid the exchange of contact information of any kind between campers and our staff, whether paid or volunteer.
If a parent or legal guardian wishes their child to exchange such information with a camp staff member, the parent or legal guardian must sign a written form expressly granting this permission and accepting full responsibility for whatever may occur as a result.
As the parent or legal guardian of _______________________________________, (camper’s name) □ I hereby grant permission for my child to exchange contact information with her counselor(s).

I recognize fully that the camp discourages their staff from having contact with campers after camp; that the camp does not recommend their staff as baby-sitters, Nannies or child companions outside of camp; and that the camp does not take responsibility for the behavior of their staff off-season. I also understand that this permission must be renewed for each camp season.
