Camp Morty Policies and Community Rules
We have expectations and procedures for each part of the day so everyone knows how to be successful at camp. Although we will go over all expectations once you camper arrives at Camp Morty, we find it is often helpful for children to hear about the expectations from their families before the children arrive at camp.
Campers listen and follow directions given by staff.
Campers respect the personal space of others by keeping hands and feet to themselves.
Campers never go anywhere alone and always ask permission to leave their group.
Campers wear closed toe shoes at all times around camp.
Campers communicate respectfully with adults and fellow campers. Swearing, teasing and racial comments will not be tolerated.
We are always on time.
At camp, nothing flies through the air!
General Community Rules
Campers should not bring a cell phone, electronic devices, or money to camp. There is nothing to buy, no signal for the phone, and nowhere to charge the phone.
Campers are responsible for maintaining their yurts in a neat and clean fashion throughout the week.
Campers will participate in scheduled activities with their group.
Campers will respect themselves, other campers, the environment, facilities and staff.
If you feel that your camper may struggle with any of these expectations or rules, please contact us, so we can set up an appropriate behavior plan while your camper is in our care. When a camper is unable to meet one of the above expectations a behavior warning is given. Multiple behavior warnings result in being sent home.
We like to celebrate too!
We have high expectations for our campers, but we also believe that great behavior should be rewarded! Each week ends with a camp awards ceremony which celebrates the achievements in both yurt groups and in individual campers. Below are a few of the awards that are given out each week:
Paper Plate Awards – Everyone is a winner at Camp Morty! Completing a full week at camp can be tough, and we recognize that each camper contributed in a big way! Paper Plate awards are created and given out by the campers counselors and highlights something unique or spectacular about them individually!
Star Camper Award – Star Camper is the system to recognize junior division campers who exhibit positive individual behaviors throughout the week.
Reliable Role Model – Reliable Role Model is the system to recognize teen division campers who exhibit positive individual behaviors throughout the week.
Morty Maple Leaves – Each yurt group has the opportunity to earn “Morty Maple Leaves” for exemplary sportsmanship and good behavior. Maple leaves are given out by our experts and announced at meals.
