HEALTH AND SAFETY ARE TOP PRIORITIES FOR US!
It takes a lot of trust to send a child away for a week and we don’t take the responsibility lightly! At Camp our first organizational priority is the safety of our campers. A safe environment is the foundation for a fun summer camp experience. We have a great team working year-round to provide a safe and exciting place for your children.
Summer 2021 and COVID-19
We are working closely with the Ontario Camp Association and the provincial government to develop and implement rigorous policies for next summer to ensure the safety of our community. In addition to our regular safeguards list below, we will implementing new policies involving pre-camp screening, reduced overall capacity, cohorting of campers and staff and heightening cleaning and disinfection practices.
As these guidance documents from Public Health are released we will be updating our community on our policies for Summer 2021.
on site every week
of the summer
We aim to have three or more medical professionals on site every week of the summer. This team administers first aid, distributes camper medication, and deliver an opening day safety talk with all campers on sun safety, hydration and safe footwear. Positions exist for nurses, doctors and paramedics. Find out more about joining our team.
How We Do Things…
All medication is given to our team during check-in. Nurses administer prescriptions at meal times and in the evening as necessary. Campers are not permitted to keep medication in cabins.
Early week each core program performs a routine practice drill. This ensures everyone knows what the alarm sounds like and where to go in the event of a missing person or emergency situation.
Every year our summer team is trained to know how to deal with bullying, emergency situations and camper injuries. Our staff training is a week longer than other camps on average.
