young persons policy

Dumfries Camera Club welcomes people under the age of 18 years, and takes the duty of care to all individuals seriously.

Anyone under the age of 18 years must be accompanied by a parent or guardian, or other adult designated in writing by the parent, at all club meetings. (If the accompanying adult is not a photographer and does not wish to involve his/herself in club activities, no membership charge will be levied).

The club runs occasional small group practical photographic activities, outwith the scheduled program. People under the age of 18 years are welcome to attend but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian or designated individual.

No photographs of attendees under the age of 18 years will be taken at club meetings without the express permission of the parent or guardian.

Images displayed occasionally have the potential to cause distress, for instance nudity, violence or gory scenes in natural history; and suffering, poverty, or violence in photojournalism. These images are valid subjects for photographers, and parents, guardians, and young people should be aware that these subjects may be presented.

Any person under the age of 18 years arriving at a club meeting without an accompanying adult cannot be admitted.
