SCHOOL REQUIREMENTS

Respect the school staff and facilities. We are guests at the school. Occupants are responsible for the condition of their rooms. All it takes is one incident or damage to a classroom for CHWC to lose a school for the following summer. Any damages will be charged to those responsible.

The school is a SMOKE-FREE ENVIRONMENT. Smoking is not permitted anywhere on campus.
Teens who come to Workcamp with a boy/girl friend are asked to refrain from PDA (Public Display of Affection) For the best experience, CHWC encourages teen couples to spend time with other campers and not exclusively with each other.

Campers may possess cell phones but they may only be used during free time, and in emergency situations. They must be completely turned off and out of site at the worksites and during morning and evening programs. This also includes using phones for: •Text Messaging •Making and Receiving calls •Games •Checking News/Sports scores. Cell phones must be on vibrate after lights out.

The use of radios, CD players, MP3 players and iPods are restricted to sleeping areas. They will not be allowed at worksites, on school grounds outside sleeping areas or during evening activities. One of the goals of Workcamp is to help build relationships within your group, with members of other groups and with the people you will serve. Conversation and relationship building are hindered when campers are listening to music rather than the people around them.

Observe the “lights out” rule. You will need plenty of rest in order to work efficiently and enjoy the many activities we have planned for you. Other participants may need more sleep, so it is important that you are quiet after “lights out.”

Do not leave the school grounds, unless your adult leader grants permission. Some schools have fast food restaurants and convenience stores within walking distance of the school. It will be left to the discretion of the youth leader as to whether or not youth group members will be allowed to leave the school area. All teens must be accompanied by an adult if you leave school grounds.

Attend all programs. For your own safety, we do not want campers in their sleeping area or anywhere else during a scheduled program. Adults need to check sleeping quarters to make sure no teen campers are in the classrooms.

Snack food is allowed but cannot be stored or eaten in the sleeping quarters. Tables in the cafeteria will be used for your group’s goodies. A designated person will collect all munchies from your group and store them in a box with your parish name on it. This food can only be eaten in the cafeteria. We do not want ants, cockroaches and mice to raid your classrooms.
