CAMPER CONDUCT

MoLab is dedicated to providing a safe and amicable environment for our campers.  We assume that all campers are attending camp because they want to be at Camp Spark. Should any irresolvable behavioral issues arise; the parent/guardian will be contacted. Following all reasonable recourse to correct the matter, MoLab reserves the right to request that the camper not be eligible to continue participation. In this event, parent/guardian will be asked to pick up the camper.

Please contact Aimee Hills for more information, questions, or to request a brochure at aimee@tallymolab.org or 850-591-6362.
