Camp Staff Expectations

The staff person may be removed from the activity and their camper assignment, depending upon severity.

Conflict of Interest Statement
Stephen J. Wampler Foundation's Conflict of Interest Statement

No staff member or any member of her/his family should accept any gift, entertainment, services, loans or promises of future benefits from any person who, personally or whose employer, might benefit or appear to benefit because of the staff member's connection with the Stephen J. Wampler Foundation Inc. Staff members are expected to work out for themselves the most gracious methods of declining gifts and entertainment that do not meet this standard.

No staff member should perform services, for personal gain, for any supplier to Stephen J. Wampler Foundation Inc. of goods or services, or for any customer, as employee, consultant, or in any other capacity, that provides compensation of any kind. Similar association by a member of the staff member's family or by any other relative may also be inappropriate.

No staff member, or any member of her/his family should have any beneficial interest in or substantial obligation toward any supplier, customer of Stephen J. Wampler Foundation Inc. or any other organization that is engaged in doing business with or serving the Foundation, unless it has been determined on the basis of full disclosure of the facts that such interest does not give rise to a conflict of interest.

This regulation is not intended to apply to situations that do not compromise the staff member, the Stephen J. Wampler Foundation Inc., or a third party; nor does it apply to gifts and social entertainment of a nominal value that are clearly in keeping with good business ethics and that do not obligate the recipient.

Any matters or questions that arise will be referred to the Executive Director for appropriate action.
