Behavioral Expectations for Youth and Adult Participants of CER Events

Expectations For All Participants

I understand that CER youth events have commitments to parents, congregations, and our insurance company. I will seek to be in right relationship in these relationships and in right relationship in the covenant created within the youth event.

  • No violence, weapons or dangerous items This includes physical violence, verbal threats or harassment, or possession of weapons or explosives such as fireworks.

  • Respect property/No vandalism – respect local facilities and the community’s possessions, and no theft.

  • No drugs, alcohol, or illegal substances – this includes requirement to use medication as prescribed, and turn prescription medication over to an adult if required for that event.

  • No smoking, vaping, or use of tobacco products.

  • No harassment on the basis of sex, race, national origin, religion, disability or any other protected status.

  • No sexualized conduct or sexual activity, including open mouth and/or prolonged kissing. In general, includes any touch meant to arouse, sharing sexually explicit material such as videos, apps or games.

  • No unwanted, uninvited touch – only a clearly expressed “yes” means yes – e.g. ask before hugging.

  • Rule of Three - All excursions off-site must include a minimum of three, multigenerational participants. No youth or adults are to ever be alone in a closed space with another youth participant.

  • No leaving the event location without proper permission – what constitutes permission may vary by event but must require permission by the adult responsible for supervising the youth.
    • For CER events this includes pre-approval by event leaders and written permission from the youth's parent/guardian.
  • I will follow the event sleeping policies.
  • I will not bring peanuts or tree nuts.
  • I will follow additional site rules set by the host.
