Non-Discriminary Policy

We admit students of any race, color, national, and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. Camp Pebble does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, gender, age, disability (which if needing accommodation may be reasonably accommodated as provided by law), religion, national and ethnic origin, sexual orientation, or gender identity in administration of its educational policies or admissions policies. In keeping with the aforementioned policies, Camp Pebble also prohibits all forms of harassment, including sexual or otherwise. 

Students with Disabilities

Camp Pebble makes reasonable accommodations for persons with disabilities. If you anticipate or experience barriers to your learning or full participation in a bodywork training program based on a physical, learning, or mental health disability, please contact our Admissions staff for more information.

Professional Code of Conduct

Students help to create a welcoming and friendly educational environment where everyone has the opportunity to achieve their educational goals. Students develop professional skills by conducting themselves in a professional manner at all times. This includes being respectful and sensitive to others, maintaining confidentiality and appropriate boundaries, demonstrating professional communication and cooperation, and promoting the compassionate atmosphere of Camp Pebble. See the Student Handbook for the full Code of Conduct.

Student/Teacher Ratio

You will experience focused attention by instructors in every course. It is especially important for the development of our students to be closely observed and receive individualized feedback throughout their training.  We keep our certificate program sizes to a minimum. There will be no more than 10 students per course.

Attendance Policy

Students are expected to attend 650 hours in their entirety. Exceeding the allowable time missed will result in failure of the course. Instructors take attendance at the beginning and end of every class. Students are responsible for contacting their instructor and making up all missed coursework. All classes begin on time. Students who arrive late to class, return late from a break, or leave early are considered to be tardy. Accumulated tardiness over 60 minutes counts towards an absence. Absences exceeding 30 hours will be considered a failure of the course. It is the student’s responsibility to check in with the instructor in the event of tardiness or early departure. Students withdrawn under this attendance policy are subject to the statutory refund calculation.

Making Up Absences 

It is unfortunate when students miss a class, as attendance and achievement are clearly linked. It is a priority that students remain current with all course material. Students are responsible for the missed coursework and are required to make-up the missed class. Instructors will verify that students have demonstrated competency in missed coursework. Make up assignments will be determined by the instructor and may include written work or being required to schedule an in-person tutorial with the instructor. The week following the completion of the course will be scheduled for any make up hours missed not to exceed 30 hours. 

Drug and Alcohol Abuse Prevention Policy and Resources

It is the policy of Camp Pebble that illicit drug use (including manufacture, sale, distribution, dispensation, or possession) is prohibited in the workplace, on the campus, or as part of any activity and is subject to disciplinary action. In addition, the use of alcoholic beverages is prohibited in the workplace, on the campus or as part of any activity and is subject to disciplinary action.

Dismissal

The Director reserves the right to dismiss any student for reasons that include, but are not limited to, the following: 

  • Behavior that is disrespectful or disruptive to the learning environment, students, faculty, administration, staff, and/or clients.

  • Conduct that may be harmful to the reputation of Camp Pebble Wellness Institute or the bodywork profession. 

  • Violation of student clinic policies.

  • Unsatisfactory attendance or excessive tardiness. 

  • Unsatisfactory academic progress.

  • Failure to make scheduled tuition payments.

  • Any behavior which compromises the safety and security of the school environment. 

A student may appeal a dismissal within five business days of notification of dismissal by submitting a written appeal to the School Director. In the event that dismissal occurs, the dismissed student will remain responsible for payment of all outstanding tuition obligations for services received, as per the refunds Withdrawal and Cancellation policy. If a student wishes to re-enter the program after dismissal, they may apply for Conditional Acceptance to the school after a waiting period of one year. All past due fees must be paid in full prior to re-admittance. Conditions for full admission, as well as the length of probation, will be stated in writing in the Re-Admittance Contract. Credit for completed courses may be given. Failure to comply with the conditions of the Re-Admittance Contract will result in immediate dismissal.
