A Message from Geoff (Head of Camps)
“At Camp Rubicon we just want everyone to have an amazing week of fun – we therefore take a very hard line with any form of bullying.
We encourage all the children on camp to talk to staff if they notice anything or experience anything, so that it can be dealt with quickly and with minimum of fuss. These chats will of course be kept confidential.
Bullying can take place in many ways – whether it is by teasing another child, excluding another child, being mean towards another child or threatening another child – and it can be done through an individual or a group of children.
There is no excuse whatsoever for any form of bullying – and the staff will deal with it very seriously as it could have a major impact on the enjoyment and safety of a child.
The staff are always available to talk to – and have been trained to keep a close eye out for any early signs of inappropriate behaviour – as well as help all children settle in to life on camp – and what might be their first time away from home.”
