- We are committed to making sure every camper in our care is safe, respected, nurtured, and free to have fun, learn, and make friends. We care deeply about forming lasting bonds between campers and the Museum. The Camp History environment is one of positivity, trust, free expression, and historical inquiry.
- We require that all staff and campers contribute to our camp community through their positive and respectful actions and speech toward other campers, other Museum staff, the physical environment of the Museum, and the Museum’s collections.
- We ensure that these standards and expectations are clear to all campers, so we can set everyone up for success.
- Should a camper struggle to treat other campers, staff, or the Museum environment or its collections with respect, Camp History staff may choose to engage in the following measures to address and improve the situation:
o Speaking directly to campers
o Speaking to parents/guardians about camper behavior
o Redirecting or limiting camper behavior as appropriate to a given situation
- In the rare event that a camper engages in persistent or extreme behavior in violation of community standards, The New-York Historical Society reserves the right to terminate the camper’s participation in Camp History at any time, without refunding registration costs.
