If your child has been diagnosed with stress/anxiety and or depression disorders, please be aware that IGC is not the best environment for them. We are a resident structured overnight camp with a specialty in gymnastics with multiple daily transitions. If your child is currently taking medication for any of the mentioned conditions, IGC is not equipped to accommodate their particular needs. There are many ACA accredited camps across the country which specialize in meeting these needs and provide a wonderful camp experience. More information can be found at http://find.acacamps.org/
We cannot accommodate children with behavioral disorders. As stated above there are many ACA accredited camps across the country which specialize in serving campers with behavioral challenges. Please refer to the following link http://find.acacamps.org/
A medical condition requiring specialized individual care cannot be accommodated at IGC. As stated above there are many ACA accredited camps across the country which specialize in serving campers with behavioral challenges. Please refer to the following link http://find.acacamps.org/

Camper Behavior: Our aim is to offer a positive and safe camp experience to all campers. Therefore, it is essential that you communicate to your child that we do not accept behavior such as violence, possession of weapons, repeated profanity, disrespect, bigotry, inappropriate sexual behavior, drug or alcohol use, or any other behaviors that are potentially harmful to themselves or to others. They must understand that a consequence of their behavior can mean immediate dismissal from camp. Campers who cannot live within the policies of camp or who are adversely affecting the experiences of other children will be dismissed. If a child is dismissed from camp, no refund is given and parents are required to make arrangements for immediate pick-up. IGC has a Zero Tolerance Policy for all inappropriate behavior. Furthermore, there are circumstances where we have agreed to accept a child with full knowledge of their specific personal challenges. IGC will attempt to take all the necessary steps to make the experience successful but may find that it is impossible to accommodate their needs. If this is the case the camper may be asked to leave for the good of the child and/or the camp community. It is important for you as parents to discuss with your camper, in detail, the camp’s expectations.
Parent Behavior: IGC Parents are expected to conduct themselves in a calm and professional manner, both on the phone and in person. Conduct that is abusive, abrasive or disruptive to employees or other campers and/or their families will not be tolerated and you and your camper will be asked to leave without refund. IGC reserves the right to refuse an application and/or dismiss a camper at any time for reasons which in its sole determination are in the best interest of the camp, including the right to dismiss a child because of disruptive parent involvement.
