Handling Safety at Summer Camp
Safety is our number one concern. We fully appreciate the responsibility we have when a parent entrusts their child with us. The Camp's directors are parents of camp-aged children as well. So we spend a lot of time planning and preparing to keep everyone healthy and safe.
To meet health and safety expectations, the Camp is accredited by the American Camp Association, which is a parent's best evidence that a camp operates in a professional manner observing industry standards for safety.
The American Camp Association has over 300 standards covering all aspects of a summer camp's operations, including staff selection, screening, training, and supervision; emergency preparation and communications; program design including staff to camper ratios and the requirement of various certifications such as first aid and life guarding; health care policies and procedures; food handling and preparation; transportation; and facilities maintenance.

And you are more than welcome to call and speak to a director about any particular concerns you may have.
