Behaviour Policy

Our summer programs are here to provide a safe and fun way for children to enjoy their summer. In order to ensure that everyone is enjoying their experience with our programs, we maintain a strict policy against any displays of violence, bullying, unsafe conduct, and foul language. The discipline format we will be using is:

  • 1st Incident: Verbal Warning,
  • 2nd Incident: “Chill out time” and parent/guardian is notified,
  • 3rd Incident: Discussion with parent/guardian (parents/guardians may be asked to supervise their child during the program).

Should a child need to be withdrawn from the program, the final withdrawal decisions are at the discretion of the Community Programs Coordinator, Town of Peace River. Removal will result if the behaviour is not resolved after the 3rd incident. Coordinators keep detailed notes on any questionable behaviour for documentation purposes and parents/guardians will be informed of any concerns in a timely manner.

Payment Options

We only accept cash or cheques made out to The Town of Peace River. Post-dated cheques will NOT be accepted. There is a 20$ fee for N.S.F. cheques.
