By registering to attend VWC, you agree to the following:

By registering to attend VWC, you agree to the following: 

  • VWC expects that all campers will respect our community agreements. Primary among these is following the Reclaiming Principles of Unity reclaiming.org/principles-of-unity/ , the use of consensus as a decision making tool, and the seeking of enthusiastic consent in interactions. 
  • If you have invited someone to VWC, please prime them with some of your understanding of VWC’s culture and language.
  • VWC is a Reclaiming camp and as such is expected to be recreational drug and alcohol free. Our host camp has a policy about the use of substances - alcohol and recreational drugs are not allowed on their grounds. Upon arrival at VWC, you will be asked to sign a waiver from our hosts stating that you agree to adhere to this policy. 
  • For many campers a recreational drug-free & sober space is a core element for their safety and enjoyment of camp. VWC organizing campers also understand the nuances of substance use and bodily autonomy. We acknowledge that campers may be using substances while at camp for chronic pain, anxiety, or other purposes. We ask all campers to be aware of how they are presenting themselves and affecting other campers’ experiences, even when on their own time. This includes being intoxicated and having odors of cannabis, alcohol, or tobacco on the clothes and breath. These behaviors and smells may be activating for those in recovery or who have experienced trauma around substance use.  
  • Our host site permits campers to use tobacco only in the VWC main parking lot. 
  • During the entirety of camp, parents are responsible for their children at all times.
  • Pets and/or therapeutic/support animals are not permitted at VWC, due to our host contract. 
  • Photography is prohibited in ritual and Path. Campers may take personal photos of themselves and their consenting friends outside of ritual/Paths with express permission from everyone who may be anywhere in the frame of the photo. Photos of children (under 18) may be taken only with explicit parental permission. Photos may never be posted or shared on social media. 
  • VWC encourages a week away from electronics. Please leave your laptops and video games at home. There is limited wi-fi enabled internet access for those who may have urgent needs. 
  • No open flames (including candles and incense) in any cabins or tent platforms. Fires only in designated pre-existing fire circles and hearths with 5 gallons of water on hand to completely douse fires. Never leave fires unattended.
  • Quiet hours are from 11:00 p.m. until 8:00 a.m. Many campers use this time to rest and recharge. 
  • All campers will follow lifeguard instructions and abide by waterfront rules. Per our contract with our host, there is no swimming or use of boats without a lifeguard. Lifeguards are on duty daily. 
  • Children under 18 must be under the supervision of a designated adult while at the waterfront. Camp lifeguards never act as designated adults for children.
  • I understand that VWC begins Saturday, August 22 and ends Saturday, August 29, 2020. If I leave camp early, I will inform an organizing camper and find someone to fill my post camp clean-up slot. 
  • All campers will sign a liability waiver upon arriving at camp. 
  • VWC reserves the right to deny or revoke admission to camp without refund for dangerous behavior or  violations of community agreements. Campers who violate community agreements during camp may be asked to engage in conflict resolution or to leave camp.
