For participants 18 years and younger, we require a minimum of 1 adult chaperone for every 6-10 youth. A successful conference depends on the quality of adult supervision for the group. Listed below are some guidelines that will help in chaperoning:
- One adult chaperone for every 6-10, 18 and under youths.
- Represent your organization well. Please set an example of both standards and attitudes that will be inspiring for your participants.
- Meet with your participants to determine conduct and dress standards for your event.
- Chaperones should inspect residence hall rooms prior to checking in and notify Conference Staff of any damages.
- At least one chaperone should go through the halls before each activity to give directions to late starters and to avoid leaving anyone in the halls during an activity.
- Attending all activities and joining in the fun promotes friendship with your participants and provides opportunities for teaching moments. Be sure all of your assigned participants are present for each activity.
- Supervision is required anytime youth are in the residence halls. Please have a contingency plan in place for supervising any ill, injured, or uninterested persons who may not be taking part in the rest of the group’s activities.
- Chaperones are responsible for making sure all participants are in the building before lockdown times. Please be sure to account for each participant before going to bed.
