Camp Becket-Chimney Corners Rules 2016
- Participants are not allowed to be in Restricted Access Areas (“RAAs”) if a Berkshire Outdoor Center staff member is not present. RAA’s include the following program areas: Challenge Course (including the High Ropes course, Alpine Tower, Low Ropes course, and indoor climbing wall), archery, and the waterfront.
- Swimming and boating is prohibited without the presence of a Berkshire Outdoor Center lifeguard.
- BCCYMCA does not have a medical facility or medical staff on site. If someone needs an ambulance, we ask that participants immediately call 911, then call the BOC emergency number listed to notify staff. If someone needs medical attention but does not require an ambulance, the group is responsible to transporting the individual to Berkshire Medical Center.
- Each participant will receive a “host packet” upon arrival. Each packet includes a copy of the guest schedule, emergency procedures and a map to Berkshire Medical Center, as well as a map of our campus. Participants should review the packet upon arrival so they know what to do in the event of an emergency. Participants must also complete the Personal Liability Waiver and the Chaperone/Guardian Waiver upon arrival.
- We ask that each group provide table setters at each meal. These volunteers should arrive at the dining hall 15 minutes prior to each meal. Please sign up for a table setting time when you arrive at registration.
- Some dining hall and food guidelines:
- We ask for each table to clear their dishes and wipe down their table at the end of the meal.
- Vegetarian options are available for vegetarians only.
- We encourage participants to think about making smart food choices and limiting their food waste
- Meals are served promptly at 8:15am, 12:00pm, and 6:00pm [unless we discuss different meal times for your event, which we may do]. Guests are highly encouraged to arrive at the start of the meal time. Food is promptly put away 45 minutes after the meal begins.
- Participants are expected to treat other guests and B.O.C. staff respectfully and equally, regardless of gender, race, religion, culture, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status or nationality. The YTS Anti-Harassment Policy extends to BCCYMCA staff.
- We ask participants to be respectful of other guests and keep the noise level down when other guests might be sleeping.
- Guests may not use, posses, or be a party to the use of, illicit drugs at BCCYMCA. Violations may result in participants being asked to leave.
- Smoking is limited to the “smoking area” (which we can tell you about upon arrival), cigarettes butts must be disposed of in trash.
- The only animals guests are permitted to bring are service animals.
- Guests are not permitted to possess weapons of any kind or hazardous material such as fireworks or other types of explosives at BCCYCMA.
- Campfires must be built in established fire pits and fire places, and must be extinguished completely and thoroughly before a group leaves the location.
- Guests may not drive vehicles through camp (we do make exceptions to this policy for folks who have limited mobility or need assistance getting around)
