A Safe Summer Camp
The Safe Summer Camp Where Your Child Can Thrive
During every summer, the safety of our campers and staff is our top priority – followed closely by fun, friendship, and personal growth. We take being a safe summer camp very seriously. Our commitment to safety is wide-ranging, covering everything from physical and mental health, to injury and illness prevention, safe hiring practices, and more. Even with decades of experience in keeping campers healthy and happy while at camp, we review and update our health and safety policies annually and throughout each summer.
Safety in Staffing
At Quinebarge, we have medical staff including a nurse, health assistant(s) and others in residence, in addition to dozens of counselors and support staff who all serve our campers. Each staff member goes through a rigorous hiring process, including multiple interviews, reference and background checks, and more. Once staff arrive, they’re not only trained in how to run activities, lifeguard, or lead a trip, but also in a variety of health and safety topics. All of our staff are first aid and CPR certified at a minimum, with many holding higher certifications including lifeguarding, basic life support, wilderness first aid/first responder, EMT, and others.
Our camp staff work in conjunction with the camp nurse and outside healthcare providers – local hospitals and pediatricians – to care for all aspects of our campers’ health.
A Summer to Remember
With months of social distancing, quarantine, and stay-at-home orders throughout this spring, campers will need the social support of friends and the camp community more than ever. Together, we’ll have fun, form friends, and help campers build confidence and resilience that will carry them through until life regains some semblance of normalcy. Because of this, we are more excited than ever to spend the summer with the Quinebarge community, offering once again the summer of a lifetime to those who need it.
