API Camp is a friendly camp where everyone should feel welcome, safe and comfortable to share ideas and engage in open discussion without the threat of intimidation or public humiliation. Please be respectful in person and on social media towards other delegates, speakers, organisers and staff.
We are committed to providing a harassment-free and inclusive camp experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, political affiliation or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of camp participants, speakers or staff in any form.
Sexual language and imagery are not appropriate for any camp venue, including talks. Camp participants who violate these rules may be expelled from the camp (without a refund) at the discretion of the camp organisers. Harassment includes but is not limited to: offensive verbal comments, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. Participants asked to stop any harassing behaviour are expected to comply immediately. These policies apply in every space at the venue related to camp activity, and to all participants in every role.
If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of camp staff immediately. camp staff can be identified by their t-shirts. We will be happy to assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the camp, for example by providing escorts or contacting police should this be required.
During the camp, contact details will be available for you to report any concerns.
We expect participants to follow these rules at all camp venues and camp-related social events.
We have lovely delegates and trust that this code of conduct mirrors the views of the majority of our participants.
