Here at the camp we ask you to be responsible in making the camp a comfortable and positive place to stay.
To create a balanced environment in which people feel at ease. We believe that everyone at the camp should feel empowered to challenge aggressive and oppressive behaviours. Your actions have an effect on the collective environment and others around you. We ask that everyone reads and adheres to the following:
Prejudicial behaviour will be challenged
This is no space for violence toward others, for being intolerant of someone’s’ religious beliefs or lack thereof, for being sleazy, predatory, racist, ageist, sexist, heterosexist, transphobic, able-bodiest, sizist, or engaging in any other behaviour or language that may perpetuate oppression. This also includes prejudicial behaviour because of someone’s social background. We ask that you respect those around you.
Respect physical and emotional boundaries
The Camp is no place for touching people without their consent. Be aware that you cannot know what peoples boundaries are without asking them. What’s comfortable for you may not be comfortable for others. Accept emotional responsibility for yourself. Intrusive violations are unacceptable; i.e. asking inappropriate personal questions, touching someone inappropriately, attempting to control how someone thinks, believes, or feels.
The Rossport Solidarity Camp does not tolerate behaviour which breaches this policy
We believe challenging aggressive and offensive behaviour is the responsibility of all who live and stay at the camp. Be responsible for your own well-being, and be aware of the well-being of those around you.
