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.
