  • All particpants are treated fairly and consistently.
  • You need to put yourself in their place and ask what your expectations would be. Be caring, supportive, friendly, and enthusiastic.

Basic Instructor Expectations
  • Know the activity plan and think about possible problems. (behavioral or safety) Inform your counselors and co-workers.
  • Locate yourself or a counselor near children who will need more attention to keep them on task.
  • Maintain a position to be able to view the group.
  • Don’t ask a camper to do something they are not capable of or afraid to do.
  • Don’t assume anything about children.
  • Don’t expect campers to sit at a structured activity too long. Give them breaks to move. Some kids need to move as they learn.
  • Eat and spend some leisure time with your group to build a connection that will bring them back to camp again.
  • Plan enough activities to keep kids busy.
  • Be part of the camp clean up at the end of camp.
behavior management plan
Behavior Management Plan

1. Always use positive reinforcement (catch them doing something good)

2. Your first approach is to simply redirect the child.

3. Your next strategy is to identify the behavior, indicate the correct behavior, and ask for compliance. (focus on behavior not person)

4. If child fails to complete the request, they may need a time out. After the time out, the correct behavior is discussed and child can return to the group if they can comply. (You cannot leave them unsupervised.)

5. If a child is too disruptive, then they may need to be removed from the group. (where do they go and who takes them) (Complete behavior report)

6. Do not use a consequence that is unreasonable or would cause a safety concern.

7. Organize the activity to best manage the group. (Consider small/large group, activity needs, attention span, movement, transitions, and weather needs)

8. Plan enough activities to keep kids busy.

Ensuring a Safe Environment
  • To protect ALL individuals, instructors need to ensure during their activity, volunteers and staff work with youth in reasonably open spaces where others are welcome to enter and are present.
  • Do not spend time alone with a single child. If you have to retrieve a single child – tell someone or have another child to get them.
  • Respect the privacy of youth.
  • Maintain an adult ratio of one to 10 youth.
