By checking the "I acknowledge" box below, you understand the following statements about the Code of Conduct and Dress Code.

Code of Conduct:

1.  Parents are responsible for the behavior of their children during GCCHS functions. Children or parents) who behave in a manner that is out of control or damages the reputation of the group will lose the privilege of attending future functions.

a. Please restrain your children from running in buildings and climbing on structures  that are not playground equipment;

b. Encourage children to demonstrate respect by listening to the tour guides or staff members and GCCHS group leaders and coordinators;

c. Encourage children to refrain from disruptive, harmful and/or insulting behaviors toward children and adults alike.

2.  Restitution for damages, property or otherwise, caused by any student, sibling, parent or their guests will be the sole responsibility of the person(s)/family causing the damage and not GCCHS. This applies to all venues for official GCCHS events: church facilities, homes of  members, field trip locations, libraries, or any other location being used in an official capacity.

3. Alcohol or tobacco use will not be allowed at any function.

4. Please dress modestly and in good taste. The Dress Code applies to both parents and children.

Dress Code

Because we are representing Jesus Christ as well as GCCHS in our conversation, attire and behavior, we ask that members please dress modestly and in good taste.

This dress code applies to both parents and children.

1. Shorts may be worn, but should not be shorter than fingertip length.

2. Skirts and dresses must be at least of mid-length (to the knee).

3. Midriffs, halter tops, halter dresses, spaghetti straps, strapless tops, strapless dresses, tight or low cut clothing are not to be worn to GCCHS events.

4. Undergarments should not be visible on any person (student or adult) at any time.

5. Clothing with inappropriate graphic designs or inappropriate written messages may not be worn at GCCHS events.

6. For swimming and water events, women, young ladies and girls should wear tankinis or one piece swimsuits. If a suit is determined to be inappropriate, a large t-shirt will be loaned to be used as a cover-up until the event is complete. With so many young men and boys in the group, it is important for Christian ladies to dress in a manner that does not draw undue attention to themselves and cause unnecessary temptation to males visually.
