Policy

Pets:
Pets are not allowed if you are staying in any Camp-owned properties such as the upper rooms, hotel units or cottages. All others, please be ready at registration to demonstrate proof of vaccinations and adhere to our leash policy which requires your pet to be tethered at all times.

Code of Conduct:
To create an enjoyable and meaningful camping experience for all, and in light of the Christian family environment desired for our camp, we ask you to agree to the following:

  • To demonstrate the Fruit of the Spirit in all our interactions
  • To refrain from inappropriate language
  • To be mindful of attire that is inappropriate and refrain from wearing those things
  • To refrain from all use of tobacco, alcohol, and/or illicit drugs anywhere on the grounds

You are a caretaker of the Camp:
Cattaraugus Camp is maintained by the hard work and generous giving of many people throughout the year who keep our grounds and facilities in good shape. We ask that all campers be mindful of this fact and help to keep the grounds in good order during your stay:

  • If you see trash lying around, please pick it up and discard it
  • There is a dumpster behind the snack shack for use of household trash for all campers. Please do not use the dumpster for construction debris or other use.
  • If you see something in disrepair that needs attention, bring it to the attention of one of our Trustees

Offerings and Giving:
Nightly offerings are received at each worship service. These generous gifts help to maintain our buildings and grounds. Giving can be directed to either Cattaraugus Christian Camp (to help with the buildings and grounds) or to Cattaraugus Family Camp (to give to the Annual Family Camp). There are also pledge cards available during camp week to pledge gifts to the ministry of the camp throughout the year.

Non-Discrimination:
Participation in Cattaraugus Christian Camp is not restricted in regard to race, sex, creed, color, national origin, or handicap. Any person who believes he/she has been discriminated against in any U.S.D.A. related activity should write to the Secretary of Agriculture, Washington, D.C. 20250.

Participation:
Participation in all scheduled ministry programs is expected of all registered campers and their guests.
