Youth Activities at Crystal Ball




Youth Activities will be available at Crystal Ball!

***Reminder – per Kingdom law, youth activities is not considered free child care.***

Parents are ultimately responsible for the safety and well-being of their children at all times.

Just a reminder note from the Youth Marshal Handbook for Middle Kingdom:

• No adult may be alone with a minor at any time during an organized activity for youth.
• Older minors are not to be left unsupervised with younger minors at organized youth activities.
• Alcohol is strictly forbidden from youth activities.
• Participation in youth activities is based on the cooperative relationship between the activity coordinator, the participating youth, and that youth’s parent or legal guardian. Participation is not a right but a privilege that is extended and must be
respected by all parties.
• At all times it is the responsibility of the parent or legal guardian of a minor to determine the safety, suitability, and appropriateness of an activity to their dependent minor.
• Inappropriate behavior of any sort by any party involved in youth activities will be dealt with in the manner deemed most appropriate in accordance with modern, corporate or kingdom law as applicable.
• Coordinators and their staff may not strike or yell at a child even if a child is a discipline problem (disruptive, sulky, crying, abusive), even if the parent verbally states this is ‘okay’.
• Children must be toilet-trained and be able to dress themselves. A parent/legal guardian must accompany younger or less-able children at all times.
