Intelligent management and conflict resolution among campers:
- Self-respect, respect towards one another and care for facilities are the main values at LuckyKids International Children’s Language Camp.
- The camp team utilizes appropriate methods to resolve minor conflicts between campers, according to the situation. As always, the resolution begins with listening carefully to all sides involved in the conflict.
- If disciplinary action is required, then it will be proportional to the offence.
- The disciplinary action applied includes mandatory correction of the mistake and its aftermath; sometimes the disciplinary action is to deprive a camper of a privilege such as participation in certain activities.
- If the camp manager decides that the child’s behaviour violates camp policy and is of a serious nature, she can expel him/her from English language camp LuckyKids, upon which the child will be sent back home to his/her parents.
- In case of an offence in which the guilty party remains unidentified, collective punishment will not be imposed, but it may cause temporary changes in the camp rules.
Camp Team Code of Conduct:
- Alcohol consumption and smoking are forbidden during work hours, in the presence of children and on the premises of the hotel where the language camp activities take place.
- The members of the camp team are expected to be tolerant and without any political, ideological or religious prejudices which may harm campers.
Control, supervision and analyses:
- Daily observation and written reports by the camp manager serve as methods of supervision of the activities of LuckyKids International Children’s Language Camp.
- The Camp manager will act immediately and take all necessary precautions when problems arise or the camp team reports incidents.

- The parents of the campers at English camp LuckyKids, as well as the teachers, animators and the hotel staff will be asked to fill out evaluation forms and to share their opinions regarding the camp.
