Cirque de Vol Youth Program Behavior Guidelines & Anti-Bullying Policy
Our program creates a safe and supportive atmosphere for all students. Campers are to behave in considerate and responsible ways that respect the dignity of others, and be committed to doing their part to maintain and uphold this atmosphere by acting with kindness and respect at all times when they are at the studio, or participating in any of our programs. Actions will at all times reflect Cirque de Vol Core Values & Follow Program Rules and Safety Policies.
At Cirque de Vol we have a firm policy against any form of bullying. Each student is expected to treat all other students with respect, and to support each other in having the best possible experience at training by acting with kindness and respect. Bullying is inexcusable in any form. If a camper has difficulty meeting this expectation, parents may be called upon to support them.
Our leadership addresses all incidents of bullying seriously and trains staff to promote communication with their staff and their campers, an incident report form will be filed documenting any incident of bullying or violence. Our staff and parents work together as a team to ensure that campers gain self-confidence, make new friends, and have a positive and enriching program experience.
Campers take Responsibility for their actions
Campers Respect themselves, each other, camp equipment and the environment. Kindness and Honesty are the basis for all relationships and interactions. Campers follow all instructions and safety guidelines at all times.
Campers are asked to talk immediately to a counselor or any camp staff member if they are uncomfortable with any experience or need assistance while at camp.
Please share Cirque de Vol's behavior and bullying policy with your campers before attending camp and check that they thoroughly understand it, and are able and willing to comply and uphold these policies as a part of their admittance to our programs.
When a camper does not follow the behavior guidelines, we will take the following action steps as behavior problems progress.
Staff will intervene and redirect the camper to more appropriate behavior.
If inappropriate behavior continues, the camper will be reminded of behavior guidelines and camp rules, and the camper will be asked to decide on action steps to correct their behavior.
If a child’s behavior still does not meet expectations and is affecting the experience of other campers, an incident report form will be filed, and the parent/guardian of the camper will be contacted to support with what is needed.
If inappropriate behavior continues, as a final action step the camper may be dismissed from camp.
