Health & Safety at Summer Camp

Who is caring for your children at camp?

An excellent average ratio of 1:6 between counsellors and children on each site ensures effective supervision, great care and strong guidance for all young campers. Counsellors are responsible for direct supervision. When taking into account the management team staff members, facilities staff, nurses and other support adults present on site, the ratio of Village Camps staff members to children can be as generous as 1:4!

Important Safety Measures

During every activity all precautionary safety measures are in place and followed strictly. All Village Camps counsellors are required to have full CPR and First Aid certification. In addition, at all camp sites there are full-time Health Care Specialists looking after campers' health. They are responsible for any first aid, the organisation and distribution of medicines, liaising with local doctors and hospitals as necessary and keeping all records relating to any illness or accident.

Hospitals are always within driving distance. In the rare event of illness or accident, parents are called at the first opportunity and updated with full information on what steps have been taken to help the child.

At every location there is a comprehensive fire drill for all staff and campers.
