reducebadthoughts asked: This goes out to all the counselors out there - Do you let campers friend you on facebook - does your camp have a policy about social media? Opinions
The camps I’ve worked at have all developed policies about these things recently. Last year I was told that putting new pictures up with campers was frowned upon but we didn’t have to take down old picture from past years. Our execs were ok with us putting up other pictures that only had staff so occasionally we would crop campers out of pictures or post things that we did on weekends sans kids.
As far as friending them, that was left up to us. I have my settings to super private and fairly clean photos(thanks to panhel rules) and if I did friend campers I set them on a restricted status. Personally, I only friended a few returners who were closer to CIT status or that I knew would be on staff soon. Some of our staff never friend campers, others are pretty choosy.
Other interpretations and or rules?
