Drug Policy Specific to Beaver Creek Youth Camp Employees

     Beaver Creek Youth Camp has a zero tolerance policy for illegal drugs - on and off campus. Staff members, paid and volunteer, may be tested at random during Staff Development, through-out the camp season, and/or when the camp manager or a director has reasonable suspicion of drug use. Staff members that are involved in an incident that require a camper or staff member to receive medical treatment away from camp, or results in a fatality, may also be tested.
     An individual testing "non-negative" on any drug test may immediately be terminated from the staff of Beaver Creek Youth Camp and excluded from the camp property. An appeal of a "non-negative" test result may be initiated by the tested individual at his or her own expense.
     It should be noted that while marijuana use is permitted by Colorado state law, its use is unlawful under federal law. Therefore, an employer may (according to the Colorado Supreme Court, Case No. 13SC349, Coats v. Dish Network) prohibit marijuana use, including medical marijuana, on and off duty. Beaver Creek Youth Camp does prohibit marijuana use on and off duty.
     It should also be noted that the drug test kit that Beaver Creek Youth Camp uses can detect certain drugs and/or their metabolites up to 30 days after they have been ingested.

Policy Concerning Gender-Specific Facilities

   Accommodations operated by the Beaver Creek Camp Commission are binary, with segregated male and female sleeping, toilet, and shower facilities.
  The commission is aware that this arrangement is not appropriate for everyone.  For whom that is the case, Beaver Creek’s manager will work with the individual (or if under 18, parent(s)/guardian(s)) or a representative of the group to explore options to accommodate the individual or group without compromising the welfare of other guests, campers, volunteers, and employees.
  If a satisfactory solution cannot be found, the Beaver Creek Camp Commission will respectfully decline serving the individual or group.
