Dormitory Rules and Cleanup Procedures

In the dorms: Meet with students immediately after moving into the dorms to discuss rules and expectations.

We ask that you and your students:

  • Monitor energy use and water consumption:
    • keep doors shut
    • turn off lights before leaving
    • don’t run water while brushing teeth
    • take short showers
  • Enforce safety measures:
    • no pillow fights
    • no curling irons
    • hair dryers are allowed in main room, not in the bathroom
    • only adults can adjust thermostat
  • Report any maintenance needs to 4-H staff.

Your school may set its own guidelines regarding shower use
and times, daily clean-up, trash patrol, etc.

Bed Time:

  • Dormitories must be quiet by 10:00 pm
  • Please do not read or tell ghost stories as this will keep the children awake
  • Do not let students leave the dorm until 7:00 am

Dormitory Cleanup:

  • You set your own cleaning standards and schedules during your stay 
  • On the outgoing day, everyone cleans up
  • Check under bunks, clotheslines and bathroom for personal belongings
  • Pack personal belongings and move them out of the dorm
  • Wipe sand off of beds
  • Sweep under and around beds
  • Wipe down sinks, shower stalls, toilets and counters with spray bottle and paper towels  (Adults, please assist with toilet cleaning)
  • Take all garbage to large cans outside of dorm
  • Pick up litter around dorm

Adults need to monitor clean up procedures to ensure a safe adequate clean up time.  A Burton 4-H Center staff member will inspect dorms prior to departure.
