We intend to have a great fun week together that is enjoyable for everyone.
For some, sharing the week with 50 or so others will be unusual, but it will just add to what makes camp a different experience. However, for it to work safely for everyone’s benefit, there will be some ground rules and other terms based on biblical standards to which the EMW camps are committed. The terms and conditions reflect those standards.
Please note that in completing the booking form you promise to observe camp rules. We very much hope that by making the ground rules clear at this stage it will not be necessary to deal with anyone for breach of this code. The rules are for the good of all, so the leaders feel it is very important that they are upheld. Any breaking of the rules, therefore, will be dealt with firmly. A deliberate breaking of the rules could lead to expulsion from the Centre without any refund of fees.
It is expected that everyone will be involved in the daily programme of activities which includes a daily camp service and group Bible studies.
For your own safety and that of others, you will be required to follow the instructions of the group leaders during all the activities of the week.
Damage and theft
Wilful damage to the Centre’s property or anyone else’s belongings, or any act of theft, will not be tolerated. Any camper who wilfully damages property or another’s belongings will pay for its repair/replacement.
Under no circumstances may you enter the room of a member of the opposite sex. You are not permitted to enter the room of another guest unless invited to do so.
Some camps may use a waterslide or include swimming as an activity. We request that girls wear a one-piece swimsuit, and boys wear shorts (not speedos or similar). Shorts and t-shirt would also be suitable for boys or girls.
Acceptable standards of behaviour will be required. Behaviour that is not acceptable will be dealt with firmly.
Smoking, Vaping and Alcohol:
No alcohol is to be consumed whilst on camp. No smoking or vaping is allowed in any part of the Centres, their grounds, on camp buses or during organised group activities. Any smoking or vaping equipment must be handed in at the start of camp. Parents may contact the camp leader directly to discuss exceptional circumstances.
In the interests of safety, good communication and the avoidance of nuisance, the use of any personal audio equipment (mp3 players, iPads, computer games, excessive use of mobile phones etc) will not be permitted.
We ask that older campers (if arriving in their own cars) do not use their cars during the camp as travel will be provided.
All campers must sign the declaration on their medical form showing their willingness to abide by the code of conduct. Any deliberate and/or consistent refusal to abide by the code of conduct may lead to expulsion from camp without any refund of fees.
