Bullying Prevention In Summer Camp | NJ Summer Camp - Eagle’s Landing

Bullying Prevention

Bullying is when one or more people exclude, tease, taunt, gossip, hit, kick or put down another person with the intent to hurt. Bullying happens when a person or group of people use their power to control or harm others. Bullying can also happen through cyberspace: through the use of e-mails, text messaging, instant messaging and other less direct methods. This type of bullying can also lead to persons being hurt during or between the camp seasons and be especially hurtful when persons are targeted with meanness and exclusion.

At Eagle’s Landing, bullying is inexcusable and we have a firm policy against all types of bullying.

Our Camp philosophy is based on our mission statement, which ensures that every camper has the opportunity to enjoy a happy and healthy summer while developing new interests and acquiring new skills. We work together as a team to ensure that campers gain self-confidence, make new friends and go home with great memories.

Unfortunately, persons who are bullied may not have the same potential to get the most out of their camp experience. Our leadership addresses all incidents of bullying seriously and trains staff to promote positive communication with their campers. As a result, both staff and campers will be comfortable alerting us to any problems during their camp experience and between camp seasons. Every person has the right to the best possible experience at camp, and by working together as a team to identify and manage bullying, we can help ensure that all campers and staff have a great summer at Eagle’s Landing.
