CAMP STAFF CODE OF CONDUCT:
As a member of the KNC Staff, you will have an incredible opportunity to impact the life of a child. With this opportunity comes great responsibility to present yourself in a manner that any parent would want their child to emulate. The Code of Conduct is designed to help you make decisions in the way that you represent yourself. They equally apply to all staff.
ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES Alcoholic beverages are not allowed.
TOBACCO The use of any tobacco product is not permitted while on KNC property. This includes cigarettes, cigars, snuff, and chewing tobacco.
PERSONAL APPEARANCE You get only one chance to make a first impression. It is important that we look professional and neat to convey to parents that we are professional people, worthy to be entrusted with the care of their children. It is also more likely that the campers will respect us if we look as though we respect ourselves. Below is our dress code policy.
Clothing: All clothing must cover your entire midriff area at all times. Shirts: You will be provided with 5 KNC Camp t-shirts which must be worn every day. Please feel free to wear camp appropriate sweatshirts, sweaters or jackets as weather permits.
Footwear: Closed toe shoes are preferred (for campers this is required), but you have the choice to wear sandals at your own risk. Footwear must be worn at all times and kept in good condition.
Pants/Shorts: You may wear any neutral colored pants or shorts. Shorts may be no shorter than half way between knee and hip. Please NO JEANS.
Name Tags: All staff will wear name tags at all times.
Jewelry: Is permitted unless it presents a safety issue (dangling or sharp) or represents offensive, illegal or inappropriate behavior.
Other: Hats and bandanas may be worn as long as they are camp appropriate. Sunglasses can be worn when needed, but should be avoided when communicating with campers or staff.
DATING AND OTHER RELATIONSHIPS Dating relationships are permitted but should never become the focus of the camp. It is expected that you refrain from showing any undue attention to your significant other and maintain a professional demeanor while at camp. Staff are not permitted to discuss their personal dating relationships with their campers.
KNC STUDENT COOPERATIVE HOUSING: Camp staff who will be living in KNC housing must be over 18 years of age and abide by the policies of that house. Visitors to the house must also be over the age of 18 years.
RULES AND OTHER POLICIES It is expected that you will take all rules, regulations, and policies seriously. Typically, rules are designed with safety in mind. As a staff member, we ask that you set the tone and lead by example not only to campers but also to your fellow staff.
