Behavior Management
Because we want SummerU to have the safest and fun environment for learning, we ask campers to be attentive to instructors and staff, engage in camp activities and respect others’ privacy and safety. Inappropriate behavior by a camper will be redirected towards proper behavior by the camp instructor. If inappropriate behavior is severe or persists, a parent or guardian will be notified and the camper may be asked to leave the program.
