Summer camp health and safety is our number one concern. In addition to the nutritious summer camp food, we have an infirmary with a Registered Nurse on call 24 hours a day and a round the clock certified WFR Wilderness First Responder on site. Our infirmary contains a bed in a quiet area should a child need to rest or be confined from others. Our nurse will dispense medications at meal time if requested.
For emergencies, Redington Fairview Hospital, a critical care facility, is located 4.8 miles from Camp in Skowhegan, approximately a 10 minute drive, and we are also on the local 911 Emergency Medical System. Parents are notified as soon as emergency procedures are put into action.
Our camp counselors are certified in American Red Cross first aid, CPR, and AED. We are also under the jurisdiction and in compliance with the stringent guidelines of the Maine State Department of Health affecting all areas of Camp.
Every member of our swim staff has been certified for American Red Cross Lifesaving in addition to the general first aid and CPR certifications. Campers all take swim tests, are rated in any one of five categories of proficiency, and are restricted from certain swim areas and other activities pending meeting minimum swim criteria. We also abide by common sense rules such as no running in the pool area and no unsupervised swimming etc.
