Safety at Camp

We understand that choosing the right camp for your child is a big decision.
While friends, activities, and programming are all important aspects of camp, your peace of mind and your child’s safety is our top priority.

Our staff

Our Staff are chosen for their energy and love of working with children. All of our camp staff act as role models and are handpicked by your director team and represent the best of their peer group.

Staff are given extensive training and are taught to care for the children’s individual needs. Our counsellors are trained to assist our youngest campers with sunscreen application, changing for swim/water play, hydration, mealtimes, bathroom runs and more. Counsellors escort campers to and from bussing and carpool each day, while helping them carry their backpacks. Our staff provide campers with a warm, spirited and safe camp environment.

Our staff team is made up of young adults in both high-school and university. Our Leadership Team are all university or college students, educators or parents themselves!

Health centre

Our Health Centre is staffed by at least one full time student nurse throughout the summer.

The Health Centre staff are readily available for campers with any routine concerns. Campers with cuts and scrapes, an upset tummy, bug bites, and other minor ailments will be treated or admitted to rest. Parents will be contacted if we are concerned about a camper’s health. For routine visits, however, a report from the camp student nurse will be sent home with your child in their camp bag.

Don’t miss out on Summer 2024!
