Onondaga Camp

Camp Policies

Privacy Policy

In order to meet the needs of our campers and have the ability to care for them we must collect personal information about them and their families. All of the information gathered is stored in our files which are secured in our locked offices and processed in a secure database with access controls. The information is given only to those staff who are directly involved in providing a service to your camper, or as required by law. When information is given to a service provider employed by Onondaga Camp Inc., we have made certain that the service provider and its employees have a Privacy Policy that prevents them from using the information for any other purpose than that for which they were hired. We do not sell or rent your family information to any company, organization or individual. Even when asked for any personal information of a camp family by other camp families, we will not provide them with any information without first asking for consent by the family about which the information was requested. Besides the care and transportation of your camper and our ability to communicate with you and your family, we do use the information on hand for statistical analysis for our camp, and to develop programs required for the future. We do retain your information to enable us to communicate with you in the future, provide your camper with recognition for time spent at camp, provide you with information about our programs, and inform you of information that we feel may be of interest to you.

Gender Inclusion Policy

Onondaga Camp’s approach to gender inclusion is informed by our mission statement.

Onondaga Camp welcomes campers and staff from all gender identities and expressions including but not limited to – cisgender, transgender, nonbinary, agender and genderqueer.  As a camp, we seek to promote equity and foster inclusion by providing the support needed to help our LGBTQ2S+ campers and staff thrive while at Onondaga Camp.

To that end, we are committed to working with campers, their families and staff to understand their needs and to providing the necessary training to our staff team.

Onondaga Camp recognizes that the understanding of gender and gender issues is still rapidly changing and therefore this policy will be reviewed as needed to ensure it is most reflective of the needs of our community.

Diversity and Inclusion

Racism and intolerance go against everything Onondaga Camp is about. We are committed to the work that we need to do to stay true to our mission statement. We must seek to better understand the inequalities that Black, Indigenous and people of colour face in a summer camp setting. It is only from there that we will be able to put into place  actionable plans to make positive changes. Camp is a place where everyone should feel welcomed and celebrated for who they are and we continue to take the steps needed to ensure just that.
