Where Staff are Family, and Guests are Friends
THE CODES STANDARD
We commit to meeting and exceeding the curriculum standards in all of our classes in addition to providing students with high quality teaching personnel, innovative educational methods and tools, and opportunities to experience the natural environment in ways that foster curiosity and lifelong learning. School groups will experience top quality staff that show patience, attentiveness, and compassion for their students and the adult guests that accompany them. All staff will adhere to the guidelines and principles established in the CamperProtect (Child Abuse Prevention) program, as well as their training in the areas of First Aid & CPR, Wilderness First Aid, and high ropes activities being vigilant in their surveillance of behaviors or incidents indicative of concern.
Opportunities for Growth and Fun
CHALLENGE BY CHOICE
It is our goal to maintain CODES' identity as a safe haven where creativity, critical thinking and personal achievement are explored, encouraged and celebrated. We encourage students to try new things and to not be defined by the labels that may have restricted them in the past, at home, or in a traditional school setting. At camp the option to choose fun and make memories is open to all!
A Holistic Approach
We believe that camp should not only be a time for new experiences, fun, and finding our inspiration for learning, but also a time to understand and to practice building one's character. The number of unique opportunities that students have to step outside of their comfort zone and to throw off old habits is great, and something that every staff member will challenge students to do at camp, because character cannot be bought, it must be built one decision at a time.
