Homewood-Flossmoor Park District Rules and Guidelines Homewood-Flossmoor Park District camps are designed for all campers to have a fun, safe and enjoyable experience. Below are some basic rules and guidelines to be followed during the program. Please review the rules and policies with your child throughout the summer. The H-F Park District appreciates your cooperation and understanding of our behavior expectations. Please direct any questions to your child’s Site Director or the Recreation Supervisor.
Respect all children, staff, equipment, supplies, facilities, and Park District guests (ex: enrichment instructors, library storytellers) Refrain from using offensive and profane language (including teasing & demeaning language). Refrain from aggressive behavior that could cause bodily harm (ex: hitting or play fighting). Refrain from inappropriate touching and body language. Listen to all directions and instructions given by the Site Director and Camp Counselors.
A child will be automatically suspended or dismissed from the program for fighting or stealing. The Recreation Supervisor and Site Director will interpret these rules. It is at the discretion of the Site Director to implement the discipline procedures and the discretion of the Recreation Supervisor to suspend a child in violation of the above agreement.
DISCIPLINE PROCEDURES First Infraction:

If a child consistently displays unacceptable behavior during camp, parents may be asked to attend a conference with the Site Director and/or the Recreation Supervisor. Parents may also request a conference to discuss any concerns. Please feel free to ask questions at any time. We believe that open communication between parents and staff is essential to your child's success and happiness.
If your child has any specific needs, check the appropriate box on the Child Information Form. Depending on the specific details, special arrangements may be made to best serve the needs of your child. Our goal is that everyone fully enjoys their summer camp experience.
