2000 Strong for Christ places the greatest importance on creating and providing the most secure environment possible for our youth. To maintain such an environment we require all staff members of youth camps and activities to be registered youth workers, and take the Youth Protection Training. We also require criminal background and sex offender background checks on all staff. While there are no screening techniques that can identify every potential risk, we try to learn all we can about the applicant and their experience working with youth.
Two-deep leadership. Two registered adult leaders or one registered leader and another adult or parent are required on all trips and outings. No one-on-one contact.
One-on-one contact between adults and youth is not permitted.
Respect of Privacy. Leader must respect the privacy of youth in situations such as changing clothes and taking showers at camp, and intrude only to the extent that health and safety require. Adults must protect their own privacy in similar situations. While most campers and leadership use cameras and other imaging devices responsibly, it has become very easy to invade the privacy of individuals. Separate accommodations.
Males and females are required to have separate sleeping, shower and restroom facilities. At no time will they be allowed in each other's cabins alone. Leaders are responsible for monitoring the behavior of youth and interceding when necessary.
Parents of youth who misbehave should be informed and asked for assistance in dealing with it.
Youth and leaders will not take part in physical violence, hazing, bulling, theft, verbal insults, drugs and alcohol. These activities have no place in our camp and other activities.
Digital Privacy has become a key issue in our society therefore we must address the use of digital devices responsibly and educate leaders and youth about the appropriate use of cell phones and cameras as a good safety and privacy issue
